We have been busy. Andrew is going to a lot of games. He has been to a few volleyball matches and football games. He sits with grandpa and grandpa while Ryan works and I continue to be on the stat crew. He behaves during the games and sits nice for them! We weren’t too sure how he would be this year since he is mobile now. He really likes the fireworks at the football games. When they went off the first time he said “hot” so he and grandma blew on them to cool them off. So every time the fireworks went, he would cool them off.
We have some visitors this weekend. Reese, Isaac, Marcus, Allison, Brian and Grandma came. How fun to have some playmates here!! Very action packed with 4 kids around. We all went to the NDSU volleyball match. (or as Andrew says va ball) They had a great time dancing to the band, too. Andrew was flipping through the game program and he came to the page with Daddy’s picture. He pointed him out. Then he also found a picture of a Bison. Speaking of Bison pictures, we received a magazine about eating healthy from the daycare. The magazine’s spokesperson is Thundar, NDSU’s mascot. Andrew just LOVES going through it to find all of the pictures of Thundar eating all of the healthy foods and playing all of his sports.
Andrew got a good report at his 18-month check up. He is grown to 33 inches now – not sure if that is counting his fluffy hair, too. :) We certainly do notice his increase in height. He is able to reach things that used to be out of his reach up on the countertop or table. He has been climbing up on the couch in his playroom with no problem.
Andrew is very good at steps now and goes up and down without problems. The only purpose of the gate is to keep him confined to upstairs now. His vocabulary is getting bigger now. He adds a new word every day or two. He loves to point out anyone wearing a hat. He says “hat” and points to his head. Andrew can identify most of his body parts now. He gets stuck on a few tricky ones like shoulder or elbow. He knows a lot of animals, too and the sounds that they make.
