Liam at 17 Months

050

Liam Dayne
17 months
17 1/2 lbs
29 inches

091

Milestones:  He took one step away from me/furniture a few times over the past month!  His balance while standing alone, without holding on, is improving every day.  He is SO close to walking independently!

093

Tooth Count: 7! 4 molars, 2 bottom middle teeth, and 1 top middle tooth. 

029

Eating: 3 meals a day plus 2 snacks. All drinks are in straw cups. Still nurses morning and night.

061

Favorite Foods:  Bananas, Cereal Bars, French Toast, Yogurt, Yogurt Melts, Spaghetti, Macaroni and Cheese, Oranges, Peaches, and Pineapple.  He LOVES fruit!

054

Sleeping:  Liam sleeps 12-14 hours through the night, and takes 1 long nap every afternoon.  He usually falls asleep in the car, too.

076

Words/Signs:  Mama, Dada, Papa, Hi (Ha), Bye (Ba), Up (Uh), Down (Da), and he signs Eat, More, and Go.  He mimics a lot of sounds and words during speech therapy, and we just have to get him saying them more so he can incorporate them into every day speech.

Likes:  Taking baths, eating, snuggling, playing, speech therapy sessions, cruising, playing at the library, and playing with his family and friends.

045

Dislikes: He hates getting his face, nose, and hands wiped! He doesn't like feeling cold and he wants his messy diapers changed immediately! (Or biting his tongue, as shown in the picture below!)

071

Favorite Toys: Bristle Blocks, Fisher Price Peek a Blocks Train, Leapfrog Cook and Play Potsy, Play Kitchen, Fisher Price shape sorter, and our ottomans and kid-sized chairs to walk behind!

019

Nicknames: Miam, Little Dude, and SuperLiam!

063

Health: Over the past month, he had an occasional stuffy/runny nose and he spiked 2 fevers.  No lingering symptoms.  I had a bad cold for a week, so I'm sure he was trying to fight that off.

043

Early Intervention: He receives Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech Therapy in our home. He receives each therapy for one hour/once a week.  He's currently working on bettering his self-feeding skills with a spoon and fork, lots of repetition with words and sounds, and learning how to walk on his own!

052

Wearing:  Mostly 6-9 month clothing, but he still fits into several 0-3 month onesies and several 3-6 month pajamas and 2-piece outfits.  Size 3 diapers and size 2 shoes. 

057

Personality:  Liam is still a cuddly love bug who is full of joy!
