This is Kallen’s last month as a 1 year old….he won’t be a baby anymore when her turns 2 next month. I cannot believe how fast he is growing, it seems like he was born yesterday! We are having so much fun watching him learn and grow and it is really nice that he is able to really communicate his wants and needs now. Here is a little bit about Kal at 23 months
Height and Weight: 32ish inches (i’ll update after his 2 yr visit) and 25 lbs.
Wearing: 18 to 24 months, some 2t fits. Size 6 or 6.5 shoe
Eating: Kal is a pretty good eater, and pretty much eats what we do. He is definitely a toddler, though, and has days where he eats like a bird or eats everything in sight. For breakfast he usually has cereal, oatmeal, or eggs. For lunch he will have Chicken Nuggets, PB&J, Grilled Cheese, Soup, or leftovers. His favorite snacks are fruit (especially “nana’s” and grapes), goldfish, and gummies (fruit snacks). For dinner he eats whatever I make for the night. His favorite are Chicken, Fries, and Guacamole.
Favorites: He is currently obsessed with Star Wars. A few months ago, when the previews starting coming out, Chris introduced him to “BB8” and he’s been hooked ever since. Over Thanksgiving, he watched the original movies with Chris, Papa Mike, and Uncle Wes and just last week Chris took him to see the newest one and he sat through all 2.5 hours of the movie. He got a light saber for Christmas, and he plays with it all day. He especially loves to have light saber battles with mom or dad He also insists on listening to the soundtrack in the car. His favorite characters are BB8, Chewy, and Darth Vader. He still loves basketball and throwing the ball in the hoop. He loves to help with cleaning, especially sweeping and vacuuming. And he still loves to take a bubble bath
Words: He communicates very well, and has been speaking in small sentences for a while now. He has become a little parrot, so mom and dad really have to watch what they say. Some of my favorite phrases are…
“Watch Me” or “Are you Watching”
“Where are you”
“Love you too”
“Good Boy, Goggie” (doggie)
Potty Learning: We really haven’t started, Kal hasn’t showed much interest and we plan to wait until he is ready. But lately he has been telling us when he needs to/after he has pooped and he is very interested in seeing us go potty. So we plan on buying a potty seat this week and starting to offer the potty, if he wants to use it
We love our little Kal man! I will post a much more detailed update for his birthday next month
