A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Sixteen Months

BB is now sixteen months old.  It's hard to believe so much time has passed since he came to our home last April.  He is now a lively toddler who is quickly developing a mind of his own. :-)

Here are some of his current highlights:
  • very busy, all the time
  • walks, attempts to run
  • loves to be chased
  • carries on conversations in his own language
  • no real words yet
  • starts dancing when music plays
  • shrieks when he doesn't like something or wants attention
  • likes to spin around
  • hates swings, but likes slides
  • waves bye, bye
  • loves the pool
  • enjoys his bath, even lays on his stomach
  • purposely puts is face in the water
  • eats a variety of table food
  • can drink with a straw
  • finally eats off a plate instead of dumping it, sometimes
  • has first molars in
  • only uses a bottle at bedtime
  • often refuses to be fed, wants to feed himself
  • sometimes gets food into his mouth with fork or spoon
  • often plays contently in his crib when he wakes up
  • AND runs straight to me when I come home from work!
BB receives combined speech therapy and occupational therapy for an hour and a half each week. They say he is doing great, although I'm not sure there is tangible progress yet. He did come home last week and say "Hi" while playing with a toy telephone. I guess that is progress!

  1. Britton is seventeen months old and sounds very similar to your BB. Bet they would have fun chasing each other around. :)
