18 Months!

Tyler is 18 months old! We went to the doctor today and he weighed in at 27 pounds 6 ounces (75th percentile) and is 34 inches tall (90-95th percentile!). He is a BIG boy! They said he looks great. They also said his tubes look good. The tubes seem to be working great- he has had 2 major snotty noses with no ear infections! Praise the Lord!

At 18 months Tyler likes to:

  • Imitate everything we do. He "drinks" from empty Diet Coke cans and gives Teddy the pacifier. His newest thing is to turn the humidifier on with his foot. Each of the boys have the same humidifier in their rooms. Travis and I usually turn it on with our feet because we usually have a kid in our arms. Tyler has started using his foot to turn it on- he refuses to use his hand. It's amazing how much they really pick up on so young.
  • He loves climbing up and down the stairs holding on to the spindles. He has actually gotten really good at it.
  • He loves banging on Cooper's door when he is taking naps- this drives me CRAZY!
  • He still loves his teddy, being outside, playing tractors, and eating!
  • He loves to wash his hands.
  • He has really started pushing the limits. He tries to get away with standing on the couch after we have told him a thousand times to sit on his bottom. He is also learning to not walk into the street so he will stand right at the edge of the driveway about an inch from the street. Luckily we live on a cul-de-sac so I'm not too worried when he does venture into the street.
Tyler is a great kid the majority of the time and he is really showing his personality. He is learning lots of new words and still likes to sign for those words he can't say just yet. He is definitely keeping us busy! Enjoy the pictures.


The reaction I got when I asked Tyler to smile for the camera.

That first picture reminds me of Travis when he builds 6 roads in Catan.
