20 Month Update

Carter is officially 20 month's old today! Wow. Makes me sad just thinking about it, but I also love all the wonderfully cute little things he is doing right now.

My favorite being the little sentences he says using made up words, but you know exactly what he is saying because of his tone. Make sense? For example, Roxanne always chases Carter around the house and makes little claw hands and says "I'm gonna get you!" And he squeals with delight. The other day, in the car, Carter was sitting right behind Roxanne in his car seat, and he made this adorable attempt at little claw hands and scrunched up his face and said "Mmagawitu" and we both just about died right there. Love it.

This is what is up with Carter at 20 month's old:

-Has had all of his shots up to 2 years
-Weighs approximately 23 pounds and wears size 4 diapers.
-Wears 12 - 18 month clothes. Still!
-Wears size 5 shoes.
-Favorite food is CHEESE. Just like his daddy.
-His favorite meal would be a Cheese Quesadilla.
-He despises fruit except for bananas, but this month he started eating apples and tasted a strawberry, progress!
-He loves going to the grocery store with me and driving the car (attached to the cart) around the store.
-He loves playing toys with Auntie Roc almost everyday while Mommy cooks dinner.
-He LOVES to draw! He also discovered how to draw on the walls and that it makes Mommy really mad.
-And my favorite update - he is officially sleeping in his own crib! (Blog post on ferberizing a 19 month old to follow soon). He still cries a bit each night and is waking up once in the middle of the night to cry for us, so we aren't all sleeping peacefully just yet, but I know it will happen soon.
-And his favorite shows are Mickey Mouse, Yo Gabba Gabba, Blues Clues, and Kipper.

He still looks just like Daddy, but acts just like Mommy. He is such the jokester too, and loves to dance and act silly.

The last 20 months have been the most challenging of my life, but also the best. I love you Carter Andrew York! You rock my world.
