I've been meaning to write an Oscar update for months. No time like the present to jot down random thoughts.
At his 15 month appointment he weighed in at 25 pounds (we knew he was finally gaining some serious weight). He's going on 12 teeth but it's hard to verify 'cause he bites. Hard. But I think all four molars have finally broken through.
He can be a picky eater. I don't think he'd eat a cooked carrot if his life depended on it but he loves to dip raw carrots in hummus and lick off the hummus. His favorite (healthy) food is probably cooked cauliflower. Strange, no? He also loves grapes and pretty much every other fruit. Not real big on bread/carbs and he no longer likes yogurt. Or meat. Basically he's a paleo-vegan eater (plus milk). He likes to feed himself but when he's done, watch out. He chucks it and he's got an arm. Our floors will never be clean again. He doesn't like sippy cups much but loves, loves, loves his bottles of milk and can serve himself water (messily) from a regular cup.
He's still not much for walking, he's got several strange non-walking modes of transport including walking on his knees, scooting on one knee, crawling, bear walking etc and if you hold even one hand he'll walk all over. He loves to push his shopping cart. Oh look, a very typical video, right down to the lack of pants or shoes.
He talks! Sort of! BaBa is his favorite word (bottle). Plus he's got DaDa, MaMa, Bah (ball), UhOh and Wow. Also Dat (that) and another Bah that I think is bird (or hey, look, something above my
head that is just as likely to be an overhead light as a plane or bird).
He kisses perfect little puckered up smacks on the lips and he gives the best loves where he lays his head on your shoulder and wraps his arms around you and just melts into you. On the other hand he also slaps, hits and bites. Fickle child.
His favorite activity is definitely getting into things he shouldn't and taking them out of the place they belong. Got a shelf you need emptied? Call me. As for favorite activities of all time, close on the heels of wreaking havoc is playing in his sandbox, putting lids on containers, playing with his red ball, peek-a-boo and swinging.
I must admit, we love him, but this is kind of an obnoxious age. Lucky he's cute :)
