18 months! How time flies!

Again, his likes and dislikes haven't really changed much, except the likes now include throwing and dislikes include having things taken away when he throws them!

He has also gotten very, very good on his scooter. He has even been let out of the hallway a few times. I need to get a good video of this. He seems so much more coordinated when he is on it, than when he is running and tripping down the hallway. ;)

His vocabulary has exploded again, I can't even track the words anymore. He has also started repeating things that he hears, even when he doesn't know what they refer to. He has also started putting two words together occasionally, the biggest being "no like". It is very useful, he says it before getting upset about something, oh, how he is growing up!

He still refers to most large moving objects as a "bus", but he has differentiated with "bike" and very occasionally with "ca" (short for "car" - doesn't quite have the "r" sound yet!).

He seems to be getting taller every day. He can now open doors, get most things off the kitchen counter, and climb up on just about everything in the house. We decided to get a height chart so we could start recording his growth. He appears to be 34in, which is about 95% percentile for his age, so still a very big kid! We tried to get a picture of it. . .
