nash {16 months}

27lbs 4oz; 32.5 inches
You are mostly wearing 24 month/2T PJ's but you still have a few 18 months that fit.  Clothes are mainly 24 months, 18-24 months, and 2T.  You are in size 5 diapers and size 5 shoes.  Although some are actually so snug because your feet are so fat! I can't really keep them on you always so it doesn't really matter! 

This month you have been consistently sleeping until 7ish.  You still occasionally wake up earlier, but I don't go and get you until 7am.  Our move helped you get your morning nap back more consistently.  You were so tired from staying up later than usually that you had to have your morning nap.  Most days if we are home you take an hour morning nap from about 9:30-10:30, but if we go out in the morning I still put you down from 11-12.  Afternoon naps are usually from 2-4pm unless morning nap got a late start.  You are still the easiest child to lay down for bed and nap.  I just lay you in your bed, give you a paci, both of your lovies and turn the glow seahorse music on.  Bedtime still has a quick nursing session but it doesn't last long.  You will also just fall asleep in the car if you are sleepy unlike big brother.  With all of our traveling back and forth from Tyler to Dallas, I actually time our drives for nap time and you will sleep the entire drive.  

This month has been so crazy that I can't even remember when I dropped your morning nursing time, but at some point we did.  Both you and Pearson are starving first thing in the morning so it's easier to just give you a cup of milk while I get breakfast ready for both of you.  When Pops had his stroke, I thought I was going to have to abruptly stop nursing at bedtime because I didn't know if I would be with you at night, but we managed to push through and keep going. I am still nursing for just a little bit right before bed.  I don't think you really get all that much, but I treasure the 5-10 minutes you do nurse because it's really the only time you will sit down in my lap and snuggle.  You eat 3 meals a day with a couple snacks in between.  You always out eat Pearson and you will really eat anything!! We are really struggling with you throwing your food and plate when you are done.

New Tricks/Activities/Accomplishments: 
You can run and walk on your tip-toes. You are learning how to climb down the stairs.  You have become a little climber. You climb on top of the laundry basket, stools, and the chairs in our playroom.  You are a master at opening doors and love to flush the potty for us. 

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

Teeth: (I still need an official count
7 (6 top/4 bottom) Your top left canine, other top molar, both bottom molars and one bottom canine are coming in.  Yes, that's a lot of teeth coming in.)

Going for walks, playing outside in our backyard, your paci, swinging at the park, wrestling with big brother, climbing, eating, throwing anything and everything, reading books in someones lap, playing "fetch", and when we sing songs to you!

Having the towel over your head after bath, getting your diaper changes, when brother gets to close, when I hold you and don't let you walk, when I make you stay in the playroom with the baby gate closed. 
Other Random Facts:

  • You are such a little stinker! You are constantly looking at us with a little stink face when you are about to do something you know you aren't supposed to.  
  • I still haven't taken the paci away.  You have it at bedtime, nap time and unfortunately you I have caved in and always give it to you in the car.
  • You have grown so much this month! You feel heavier and look taller. 
  • You refuse to give things words.  Instead of saying milk or more or this or that you just grunt and point. Ughhhhh. Ughhhhhh.  We have got to get you a bigger vocabulary!
  • You are such a flirt.  You love waving at people when they aren't looking. Once you get their attention you act all shy.  
  • I wish I would have written more down this month, but it's been a crazy one with the move and my Dad's accident/stroke.
Here is Pearson at 16 months and Nash at 16 months.
 Look how you have changed……

Nash has such s cute personality. I am amazed how well he throws balls. They actually go straight the majority of the time. But that climbing! He will attempt to climb most anything. Grammy loves this little guy so much!
