14 Months

I know, I’ve been sucking it up in the blogging department.  I feel like there is a lot to write about but just not enough time.  Today I planned a nice, long blog post….but Lachlan woke up from his nap after 10 minutes.  Ahhh, c’est la vie.  I plan to spend some time out in the beautiful sunshine today…..65 degrees and gorgeous! So, bullets it is for now.  Lach is now 14 months and doing lots of new things…….

  • Not only can he open every one of our doors all by himself, he can unlock them too!!!
  • He has just moved into size 5 shoes.
  • Tooth #3 is finally here! He has the 2 bottom middle teeth and then a top middle one.
  • He can go down stairs now! We call it being “responsible”.  He goes down backwards and slides down each one.
  • We are seeing more and more temper tantrums when he doesn’t get his way….specifically when he can’t plug in the hairdryer or vacuum cleaner.
  • With only nursing twice a day now, I’d been trying to give him formula or whole milk.  He refused both repeatedly….but now drinks whole organic chocolate milk. Progress 🙂
  • He puts things away!  It’s true – he can be such a good little helper when he wants to be.  He can put all his toys away, and even the catalogs at work!
  • He won’t let us brush his teeth anymore.  He used to do it on his own, but now wants nothing to do with the toothbrush – whether it’s us doing it or himself…..we’re working on it….
  • He’s completely on big boy table food now.  No more stage 3 baby stuff at all.  He loves whole wheat grilled cheese sandwiches and, of course, mac n’ cheese.  Loves zucchini muffins, bananas and strawberries too.
  • Like me, he adores dark chocolate.
  • He points at what he wants now, and at what he wants us to see.  He also is learning more and more signs and has even come up with a few of his own (sky, clouds!)
  • Shaking his head and spinning in circles…..what in the world!?
  • We finally have gotten a break from F.rosty.  He will watch ONE E.lmo video and loves the C.at in the Hat video with The S.neetches, The Z.ax & G.reen Eggs And Ham.

  1. Unbelievable… I can’t get my mind around the fact the he’s 14 months old already! I’m looking forward to reading about his transition from being the baby in the family to becoming a big brother. I’m hoping to be just about 14 months behind you in that respect.

    Happy 14 months, Lachlan!!

  2. That boy is beautiful, and I love that his hair is long! He’s like a little rocker. I’m glad he’s progressing so well, especially in the food arena, I know that’s tough with little ones. At least he’s got good taste – I mean, mac n’ cheese, chocolate milk and dark chocolate? Obviously he knows where it’s at.
