Happy 18 Months Charlie!


Our Charlie-boy is a year and a half old! How did that happen? Here’s a little tutorial on Charlie at 18 months!


Weight: 20 lbs. 2 oz.- below the chart (I’m trying to fatten him up- promise!)

Height: 31 1/4”- 25%


The past few months have been big for our little guy. While he’s still pretty weary of strangers and being away from mama, he’s definitely gained some confidence as his walking has gotten better. You’re now happy to wander around, and often get angry (fussy!) when I can’t let you.

He has seven front teeth and two molars on top! Bring on the steak!

He’s a pretty good sleeper, with a 1 1/2- 2 hour afternoon nap and sleeping 6 pm-7 am most nights. Mama reeeally appreciates that!


Charlie is talking up a storm, putting two words together, and babbling like crazy. I’d estimate that he has 30-40 words that he uses regularly. I’ve also caught him “singing” along to some of our favorite kid songs lately. Fun!


Some fun new activities he’s enjoying right now: brushing his teeth with brother, throwing balls (and toys), “cutting” with safety scissors during craft time, undressing himself, using a fork effectively, coloring, wrestling with Jack.

Charlie also loves his baby. He often carries it around, saying “baaaaybee” and “Aw. Ok, baby,” while patting or hugging baby. So sweet!


We’re enjoying this little guy so much! Here’s a little comparison from a year ago…
