His weight surprised us, because he feels like a ton of bricks in our arms and he looks like a hoss when up against some of his playmates.
To commemorate the 18 month mark, here are some pics and some facts about his life right now as our spirited toddler.
At Jude's 18 month appointment one of the random questions the doctor asks is, "How many blocks can he stack?" At his age, he's supposed to be able to stack 3 to 4 blocks. However, our little genius likes to stack blocks 8 or 9 high. In reality, what he lacks in verbal skills he makes up for in gross motor skills. He stills likes to grunt, whine, or use Jude language to communicate.
Jude still loves all of his musical instruments, his fave are the drum and his maracas.
Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village (it was a hot one that day!)
About 2 weeks after moving here and traversing the subway stairs with Jude in the stroller, I told Brett that as soon as humanly possible Jude would be walking these streets and I'd be leaving the stroller behind. Or so help me and my sanity. So lately Jude and I have been walking to the little market near our house a few times a week and we buy just what the two of us can carry home. He's a great help, though it takes a bit longer to get home...
