Wednesday, December 1

17 months old


At 17 months Grant:
--needs a haircut
--has added "more," "me," "duck"( but this isn't in reference to a duck...it's about anything) and something that kinda sounds like "book". He definitely has lots of sounds and is trying to make words
--is a very determined pointer and grunter when he wants something
--is very aware of sweets and says "me me me" whenever Seth gets a sweet
--has no stranger anxiety...will stay with anyone...never cries when he is left (in fact, he cries when I pick him up from childwatch)
--is starting to run...it's kinda in between a walk and run...a little bit of a trot
--knows his nose, hair and toes...and sometimes his ear, mouth and tummy
--is a climber...climbs on tables, toilet tanks, couches...if it can be climbed...he climbs it
--is a dipper...loves chips in salsa/ranch or carrots in hummus or french fries in ketsup
--colored his first picture
--loves loves loves wrestling with his big brother...whenever Seth is laying down....Grant jumps on top of him

--can stack stacking cups to make a tower
--wears his caregivers out...especially Nana & Grandma
--loves throwing things away...he will pick up trash around the house and throw it away...but we have to be careful because sometimes "good" stuff gets thrown away too

--is fascinated with the toilet...always puts the seat cover down when he walks by
--ate his first Thanksgiving dinner...loved stuffing and especially sweet potatoes
--is going to keep us on our toes when the Christmas tree goes up

Don't know if it would be an option for you due to tree/ceiling height, but a friend I know put her tree up on a table, of course Grant would probably figure out a way to still get to the tree, but just a thought.
Anna was really interested at first, but after a couple of days, just takes a few ornaments off here and there, but all the bottom is pretty harmless stuff anyway.
