18 month check up

Will had his 18 month check up today. He weighed 24 lbs 6 oz, and was 32 inches tall. His head was tracking along at the 95th percentile, while his weight had dropped to a little below the 50th and his height was also at the 50th. He is walking all over the place--he is super fast and can get away from me quickly if I don't watch it--he likes to take off at church after he gets out of the nursery and run around people to get "free". He is talking a ton now--today he spilled some juice on the floor in the kitchen and as I was cleaning it up I apparently missed a spot so he pointed and said more der (more there). He understands a lot of words and is really enjoying "helping" me around the house--he loves to unload the silverware from the dishwasher :-) He still loves to climb the stairs but will usually wait for someone to help him get down. He enjoys playing with any type of ball, and for Christmas he received a set of nesting boxes, and he LOVES them--he will build a tall tower over and over again. He also received an alphabet train that he can ride on which he is enjoying riding front and backwards. He is still eating some 2nd and 3rd foods for supper mostly but loves deli turkey and cheese for lunch just about everyday. He loves all types of breakfast food, and really enjoys drinking his milk and orange juice, but his favorite drink seems to be ice water. He is still wearing a size 4 diaper and is wearing 18-24 month clothing and some 2T pajamas. He is still enjoying going to school--they said he has really been happy the last few weeks he has been going and loves playing and eating :-) He is still receiving physical therapy once a week and speech therapy every 2 weeks, but we have added in occupation therapy every 2 weeks as well, on an opposite schedule of speech. So he has 2 therapies a week right now. Well, this is really long since I haven't done a monthly update in about 4 months, so if you have read all the way down I am impressed :-)

Sounds like he is growing like crazy. That is such a fun age!
