My son Camden was born on the 5th.

He has 16 teeth and his two year molars are on their way.

He says 15+ words and phrases regularly, and has another 15 or so that he uses occasionally

He refuses to use his potty but lets me know when his diaper is wet/dirty. I'm not worried about it, we've got lots of time!

No haircuts yet, but he definitely needs one!

Overall he's super smart, and has a great understanding of how things work He's learned so much in the last couple of weeks that I'm blown away!.

My daughter Kaela was born on 10-30-09. She's speaking a lot clearer now and saying more words. She understands what we are saying to her,points to what she wants or pull us by the hand and takes us to it, she is using the potty, she loves to sing, she holds up books and tries to read, and she likes to write and color. Kaela loves to dance and torture her older sister. She loves to eat fruit and vegetables but she is not a big fan of meat. Last month she weighed 22lbs. She is always happy and wakes up every morning talking and smiling.

[deleted account]

Ethan was born 12th October, he:

~Has 10 teeth and two more coming through
~Can say 25+ words regularly and another 10+ sporadically. As well as using the words he also signs milk, hot, gone, duck and bird.
~ He understands most of what we ask him to do and follows instructions really well (when he's not being a monkey)
~ Has had about 6 haircuts, his hair grows incredibly quickly just like his daddies.
~ Walks, runs, jumps, kicks (not people just in songs), stamps (again only in songs), climbs, hides, sings and dances - he is one groovy mover lol.
~ Waves hello and goodbye (and says bye) and blows kisses when we tell him we love him or when it is bedtime.
~ Eats anything we give him and is brill at using a fork and spoon. He can drink from a glass and use a straw (he prefers drinking straight from a glass).
~ Helps with my chores (dishwasher, hoover, sweeping, polishing, if he makes a mess on the floor or wees on the floor he wipes it up - I don't make him he wants to do it)
~ Knows some animals and their sounds, some body parts, some colours and some shapes.
~ He kisses my belly to say good morning to baby (I am 24 weeks pregnant) and strokes my belly to show being gentle :-)

~ He is using a potty yet, he isn't ready, he has just started to show a little recognition for the need to wee but still goes without being able to tell me he needs to. We're going to hold off until after the baby is born now I think.
~ I'm not sure about his weight/ height as he hasn't been measured since his 1st birthday, I'm not due to take him in until he's 18 months old. Alhough he is still wearing 9-12 month clothes so I think he is on the small side (but then he was small when he was born as well).

Kaylee turned 16 months on February 19th.



She has 12 teeth (eye teeth are just under the surface)

We have started potty training and she's actually gone in it once so far---very exciting, but mostly she likes to close the lid and stand on it!

24 inches and 33 pounds

Running, jumping, climbing on whatever she can reach

Uses a fork and spoon most of the time

Follows simple directions very well (pick up your toys, don't touch that, find your shoes...etc)

Says "mommy, daddy, hot/cold, hi/bye, up/down, dog/arf, cat, please (comes out pease), no/yes, Buddy (our dog), eye, ear.

In sign language, she says "eat, drink, more and all done"

Knows most of her body parts very well

No haircuts, hair is coming in slowly

Loves to work puzzles

Identifies certain animals in matching game

Brushes her teeth (sorta)

Loves to take showers

Loves to dance

Waves hi, bye and blows kisses

Brushes her hair, what little she has

Drinks with a straw without chewing it to death

Compares herself to others (for instance, she'll play with my hair then put her hands on her head and show me hers isn't the same or puts our feet next to each other and looks at the size difference)

I AM SO JEALOUS!!!!
my son turned 16 mths on the 26 th. i am in another country at the moment finishing my degree so i am MISSIN out on everything and it hurts badly. i am in class with a mostly a bunch of 19 year olds and i feel like i stick out like a sore thumb. but really, ultimately i am here to do what i have to do to secure a better future for my son. i am suckin it in. but i call every sunday to try and talk to him ( altho he jus listens into the fone and talks when the receiver is taken away from him). have to remind my mom not to spoil him too much and encourage him to start eating with his utensils and get him off the bottle.

but when i left he had:
8 teeth and was growin two on top and two on the bottom
he was runnin,
LOVES to dance and sing
loves playin with water and mud
he takes out and puts back pots and things into the cupboards
he could long from 14 months say mama,papa uncle and bye bye
but the worst is that up to now he refuses the pot and just gets into tantrums and hysterics when he is tried to put on the pot
he is on his second hair cut
and he was weighing around 14.5 kg when i left but my mom says he has gained even more

he is my heart

My son will be 17 months on Mar. 4th. He is just about 20lbs. and has 6 teeth that he's had since 8mons. He's finally starting to enjoy eating "real" food, but still loves to nurse. He can walk, run, climb up the ladder at the playground. He says mama, dada, his sister's name, potty, papa, nana, gigi, cracker, avocado "caca", more, choo choo, oh I can't think of them all, but it's a lot! He uses the potty and is in underwear about 60% of the time, but still has quite a few accidents. Some days are really good and some days not so good. He's obsessed with trains. :-)

My son Brandon, born Oct 3rd:



Has all of his teeth (except two molars I can see coming in the back)

Plays with our dog (throws toys, she plays fetch and he laughhsss)

Has had two haircuts

Says: Mommom, dada, dog, bad dog (haha), kitty, bad kitty, cookie, I want that, blue, red, (when pointing to colors), this (pointing to things he doesn't know), hi, thanks, more, clock, now... .I can't remember the rest lol.

Climbs on everything he can get his hands on, and LOVES crawling up and down stairs which gives me a heart attack lol.

I ask him to give me the remote, toy, my phone, or dog bone and he picks it up and gives it to me..

If I ask him to pick up his toys he runs around and picks up the toys and throws them in the toy box (best thing ever! LOL!)

Haven't introduced potty yet, I don't think he's quite ready.

Points to eye (and says eye), his belly button, nose, mouth, and winkie (lol in the bath tub of course).

He's usually the best baby I could ask for, but when he's tired or if I say No, he throws temper tantrums.



He only weighs 20lbs soon, will eat anything and everything I give him. We still have to put him in 12 months pants because he's short lol (he's considered average but on the low end of the scale, he's just short because my husband and I are 5'4 and 5'6 lol!).



OH! And finally, he dances to everything. Any song playing, he wiggles his butt. It's the cutest thing ever. :)

[deleted account]

has 12 teeth
tells me when she has to go potty
loves to dance.
hates the stroller and can walk for long distances (we walk to the grocery store which is about 10 mins away, she wont go in the stroller)
understands A LOT
can point to her head, hair, eyes, nose, cheeks, chin, neck, shoulders, hands, fingers, arms, elbow, knees, legs, feet and toes !
she knows how to get herself dresses, although not easily.
she says 45 words but understands A LOT more.

shes got a temper that I have never seen on anyone before. Usually though she is a sweetheart.
she is now 35 inches tall and 24 lbs.
She has a funny obsession with winnie the pooh.

My daughter is just turning 16 months. Last weigh in 18.14lbs but I think she is 20lb now (quite small). No haircuts I'm desperatlyw aiting for her hair to grow, it is getting there but very slowly! 12 teeth which she has had since before she was 1.



She has very good language understanding and will pretty much do anything we ask her to. She says quite alot of words (30+) but only when she feels like it Recently she has started leading me by the hand and pointing at what she wants but althoguh she can say the words to tell me what she wants she would rather just cry!



She knows, points to and can say most body parts (10 parts/phrases) and can do actions to a variety of songs and will try and sing them. She also likes stories and will say 'uh oh' in the correct place in the 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' story which I find hilarious every time! She also loves to dance.



Knows the potty but doesn't like to use it. Still doesnt like her nappy being changed. Active, runs/walks/climbs but no sense of danger! Beginning to use spoon but gets bored after a while and I daren't let her lose with a fork!. She likes to draw and will hold pen consistently in right hand.

Keiara ... October 10th 2009 ... The little princess she is -

All teeth (minus her eye teeth and the 2 year molars - but those eye teeth are currently right under the gums just waiting on all 4 to cut through ... that'll be FUN)
She's been running me and my husband ragged since she was 10 months old and figured out that she had legs that worked just fine (that was fun when I was 8 months pregnant)
She can speak but chooses not to - or when she does it's her own language - Daddy and I work on having her use the right words but sometimes that just isn't in her plans for the day (though Tanks, Tahtoo and Eeeeeese for Thanks, thank you and please are so darned cute)
She's more than ready to potty train but points and laughs at the potty instead of going on it
Still working on the fork/spoon thing - she uses them when *she* wants to and gets most of what's in front of her in her mouth

At 16 month check up she was 23 lbs and 32 inches tall... so she's "Average" for her weight ... but standing next to her 3 year old cousin she's only like 3 inches shorter than him ...

Showing interest in the potty,and has become increasingly more aware of wetness.
