nash {14 months}

25ish lbs pounds; not sure in length
You are wearing 18 month PJ's some 24 months, 12-18 month and some 18-24 month/2T hand me down shirts, 18 month pants.  You are in size 4 diapers and size 3 or 4 shoes when you keep them on.  

Another great month of sleeping! You even slept in a few mornings until 7:30.  It was so bizarre to have Pearson wake up first.  For the most part, you daily wake up time is around 6:30.  You are starting to wake up a little happier in the mornings.  You cry out a little, but when I get in there you promptly greet me with a "Heeeeyyyy".  Poor second child, morning nap just happens when ever we can fit it in.  Most days we are home for morning nap.  I just put you down whenever you get fussy which is usually around 9:30.  Morning nap is getting shorter and shorter and sometimes non-existent.  Lately it's only been about 45 minutes max.  Afternoon naps are still at 2pm and usually last until 3:30 or 4pm.  I think you are definitely getting to the point where you are ready for just one nap.  I sure hope it turns into a 3-4 hour nap like it did for Pearson.

I am still nursing you first thing in the morning, before afternoon nap and at bedtime.  I think you are ready to drop the nap time nursing, but I'm not.  I'm seriously having the hardest time weaning you. I think you could probably wean soon, but I won't let you! Ha! You decided you LOVE whole milk this month.  You can't get enough of it!! You eat three meals a day and have a couple snacks throughout the day.  You love baby goldfish, any kind of fruit, especially pears, grapes, and bananas.  You also love pork chops.  You love to eat bread all by yourself.  You have been kind of moody lately when it comes to your food.  Sometime you push all of it away and sometimes you eat it all up faster than I can cut it.  When you are done you are done.  You don't want any food on your tray when you are done.  You are a food swiper which makes it absolutely impossible to keep my floors clean. 

New Tricks/Activities/Accomplishments: 
You are starting to take a few steps.  The week before Easter you would walk off furniture and take 2-3 steps but then fall.  On Easter you took about 7 steps.  You are going to be full blown walking so soon. You are also just standing up by yourself in the middle of the room.  You stick your tongue out and pant when we way "What does the puppy say?".  You wave bye-bye to everyone you see whether they see you or not.  You love to bob your head when you hear music.  When Daddy leaves for work in the morning you blow a kiss, by putting your hand on your mouth then sticking your hand out. 

Da-De (Daddy) Hiiiiii, Bye-Bye, Bubu and Mama, {New This Month}>>>> Heeeyyyy, Doh (duck), Pu-Pee (puppy), Ba-Bee (Baby), Ah-Oh (with a big round mouth)

5 (3 top/2 bottom) I can see your top right molar coming it but it is barely peeping.  

Baths….especially now that you aren't in the bathseat anymore, throwing things, getting into anything and everything you aren't supposed to, going on walks, riding a horsey, being tickled.

Getting out of the bath, socks and shoes, diaper changes, when we take something away or close doors on you, when Pearson pushes you down or is on top of you.
Other Random Facts:

  • You are into EVERYTHING.  Seriously EVERYTHING.
  • You have a little attitude when we try to take things away from you.  You hold on tight, go back and forth and hold on with a death grip.  
  • You will wave to anyone and everyone even if they aren't looking.  You wave with you hand way high above your head.  As soon as they acknowledge you, you get all shy and tuck your head down.
  • Every morning we find a paci all the way by your door because you have chunked it from the crib.  
  • I'm having a much harder time taking the paci away from you than I did with Pearson.  With him, he only had it inside the crib.  You are just more moody so I give it too you when you aren't in a good mood and it usually solves the problem.
  • When I am about to put food on your tray, you point down on the tray.  It's like you are saying "Put the food down right here!".
  • You get soooooooo annoyed with your brother always being on top of you.  
  • You are so tough.  You get beat up by brother and fall down so hard but never seem bothered by it.  
  • We took you out of the bathseat for bath time and you love to play and splash really big.  You love to line up all the ducks on the ledge and say "doh, doh, doh".
  • You are a food thrower.  At dinner when you are done you start to throw your food.  It's so hard not to laugh because you can throw it clear across the table.  Sometimes you will rear back and make it look like you are going to throw it, then put it in your mouth.  Such a stinker!!
Here is Pearson at 14 months and Nash at 14 months.
 Look how you have changed……

Did he not like milk? Tessa flat out refuses to drink it. Gags on it and throws her cup:/ I have hope she will eventually like it!
