Dmitri: 1.5 years

 Dmitri Aleksandr

18-months-old

Words: apple, baby, ball, book, bubbles, cookie, cake, cheese, cracker, [ba]-"nana," shoes, mama, dada, pear, kitty, Sookie, car, truck, tree, more, juice, [oran]-"ge", eye, nose, teeth, "Gigi",

Favorite foods: avocado, banana, cheese, crackers, cookies and cake  

Favorite activities: reading books, bouncing up and down and jumping/running on the bed, playing with trains, throwing balls, picking up/nuzzling/snuggling with Sookie, going for walks in the stroller, organizing and cleaning anything and everything, brushing his teeth, climbing anything- desks, tables, chairs, window sills, counters...

Teeth: All 16 have made an appearance, as of a month ago.

New skills: Eating with a fork; "using" the computer (he climbs up into the chair and moves the mouse around on the screen); he mastered drinking from a glass a while ago, but continues to enjoy drinking from adult glasses and then placing them on a surface when he is finished; pulling out drawers and proceeding to climb them; signing "more"- he saw David sign it once and now signs it every time he hears the word or wants more;

Clothes: 12 months or 12-18 months

Dmitri is full of energy, laughter, and hugs. I do not think I could ask for a sweeter child, although, he has been throwing some tantrums! He is such a snuggle bug, and continues to sleep in our bed. I would not have it any other way and cherish the extra cuddle and bonding time that we get to share. He has finally started sleeping through the night, although he's still inconsistent about it. And while I know that it will be an adjustment (and I'm dreading what that might entail), I think he is going to be a wonderful big brother. I look forward to watching him grow and develop even more, despite getting a little teary-eyed as he changes so much!
