18 Months Plus

I'm a little behind on blogging about Camden turning 18 months, so now lets discuss him being 18 a little.

He weighs in at 25.10lbs(25-50%), we were happy to finally see him gain a little weight. At 33in(50-75%) he is still growing tall like his dad. And is big ol' noggin won't stop growing either, it is a whopping 48.9cm(75-90%).

Camden is such a piece of work but we love him more everyday. I love how much he is comprehending and love it even more when he listens. Dan told me the other day when the phone rang, Camden went and grabbed it and brought it to Dan to answer. For the most part when you ask him to clean up his toys or books he will start singing, "clean up, clean up, everybody everywhere...." and really put them away.
He loves playing outside and being social with other kids. He has mastered opening not only the back door but the front as well. Now that he has tubes in his ears and can finally hear, he is talking up a storm. His favorite words lately are:
"Chew"(chewie, the dog)
"dawg"(he is obsessed with dogs)
bike(mostly in a whining tone)
"Sef"(his buddy Seth)
"Sa"(his girlfriend Tessa)
"bay"(his new favorite toy...yes folks a cabbage patch doll)
"chee"(cheese, when he smiles)

Whenever we go someplace and I tell him it's time to go "ba-bye", he insists he says bye to everything; the tree, the ground, the car, the person, EVERYTHING! He stills LOVES talking on the phone and cries if you do it and he can't.

He is age appropriately learning how to take his clothes off(I say that with all the patience I can muster). As I was finishing getting myself ready for church on Sunday, I found him getting himself "un-ready" by taking off his pants and diaper and smearing "the mess" all over himself. It was such a proud parent moment for me as I'm sure you can imagine! And the best part about that moment was me finding a smear of "the mess" on my wall not until TWO DAYS later!

He is definitely all boy and that makes his daddy proud. He loves to wrestle, hit, yell, make huge messes and run around. But his soft side can also be spotted on a good day. As I was sitting on the couch just the other day having a good cry(don't ask...I'm pregnant and hormonal), Camden crawled up on my lap, gave me a kiss, patted my back, and get this...wiped my tears(yes that made me cry even harder). He will also sit in his room and get in his bucket of books and read for a good 10-15 minutes. Those are times when I wish the world stood still!
He brings our house lots of love and we are excited to see him as a big brother!
