Mason 18 months

Mason Alan 18 months

Mason Alan, you are 18 months old! What have you been up to these past couple of months?

Weight: 26 pounds (72nd percentile)
Height: 31.75 inches (21st percentile)
Head circumference: 19.7 inches (97th percentile)

Size 18-24 months or 2 T clothes. You are a solid dude!

You take after Daddy and have a big head.

Your sleep habits haven't changed. Thank goodness you are a good sleeper. Never change that, okay?

It seems like overnight you have turned the corner into a full blown toddler! You are exploring everything. All of a sudden, you want to be doing anything and everything Matthew and Mollie are doing. You try to keep up with the big kids!

Mason, for 18 months, you were my absolute easy going, do whatever, content kid. Now don't get me wrong, you still are pretty easy going, but lately you have shown us a little temper when you get mad. I'm not used to you being naughty or disobeying that it's almost cute when you choose to hit or throw something. You are learning how to sit in time out. It's secretly absolutely adorable to watch you sit on the stairs in time out.

You absolutely love your cousin Caleb. He is so attentive and sweet to you, and your feelings towards him are mutual. You talk about him during the week and are absolutely giddy when you get to see him. Family is such a gift!

Goodness you are the love bug of our family right now. You LOVE to snuggle and give hugs.

Your vocabulary is exploding! Every day you are learning new words. You are putting together 2 word phrases.

You try to run, but you just aren't there yet. I think because you started walking pretty late that it will just take some more time. You try so hard to keep up with your big brother and sister though!

You are a great eater, obviously. You LOVE eggs, yogurt, oatmeal, cheese, any kind of berries, frozen blueberries and toast. 

You love to color and play playdoh.

You were sick with a cold and a fever on Halloween. You dressed up as a puppy dog, but cried through the pictures. You stayed home and a had a quiet night with Gabby.

You love your little brother. What an amazing transition you have made into the role of big brother. We are so proud of you!

Mason Alan, we love you to the moon and back!
