Ace turned 19 months on April 28th.
I haven’t done a monthly post on Ace in a while and thought it would be the perfect time to do that now.
I know I say this over and over again but I feel like just yesterday Ace was that tiny little new born that we just brought home from the hospital. I just can’t believe how fast time is flying by these days.
Ace now weighs 22 lbs and is 32 in long.
He is finally wearing size 4 diapers.
He is wearing 12-18 month bottoms and 18-24 month tops. I have started buying 18-24 bottoms but he is so short most shorts look like capri’s on him…but I think that is so cute. He is wearing size 5 shoes.
Here are some thing Ace is now doing at 19 months.
Ace will basically (if he is in a good mood) repeat any word you ask him to. He has also started to put words together like I down or go bye bye.
Ace has grown to love baths thanks to Dora and Aunt Chelsea’s book about bath time. Aydrie has Dora soap and a Dora loofah that I used to get him to like baths. One day I asked him if he wanted to take a bath with Dora and that was it… he now loves taking a bath. We now only use Aydrie’s Dora loofah for Ace’s baths and we pretend to use the Dora soap. Ha! Aunt Chelsea bought him a book all about taking a bath and we read it over and over. The only part about bath time that he hates is washing his hair. Once we get done washing his hair he is done and over bath time. But that is a big difference from a couple of months ago when he screamed and cried. He now gets excited when it is bath time!
Ace loves shoes. He will bring me his shoes at night when he is in his jammies and want his shoes on. He loves shoes that he can put on by himself. We just bought him a pair of rain boots and he loves to put those on.
He loves being outside. I think he gets this from his sister.
Ace is still not sleeping through the night. He will start out in his bed but will end up in our bed. My child hates to sleep.
We are working on getting rid of the bottle. He only has one a night before bed time.
And the paci is still around. We try and only let him have it when he is tired or taking a nap. Adam and I had a nickname for the paci which was “P”. We would ask each other do you have a “P” before we left the house or while packing a bag or something like that. Well, Ace figured out our nickname so sometimes he will say “P” asking for his paci. He is so smart. He now calls his paci...bice. I have no idea where he that came from??
Ace loves animals and can identify a puppy, kitty, horsey, and moo cow….as he calls them. He can even make the animals sounds for puppy, kitty, and moo cow.
Ace has learned the word mine which we are now teaching him what sharing means. He is so funny and likes to say mine a lot when Aydrie or Lillie are around trying to mess with this toys.
He is learning lots of new stuff and it is amazing how his little brain just soaking up all of this new stuff.
Happy 19 months Ace Brady.
And just for fun he is a picture of Ace one year ago.
