Justin turned 18 months on 25 January 2011. He weighed in at 10.2kg (up 600g from 3 months ago) and had his booster jab at the clinic.
Here are his updates:
His upper right canine has erupted.
He's quite ok with his food intake. He generally eats most of what we give him.
He likes to feed himself and is able to do so quite well now, but still messy.
He can intone "ready, set, go".
He can say 'tee' (three) when someone counts one, two...
He can say 'ma', 'po po' (Pocoyo), 'ba ba' (Barney), 'eh...pel' (apple), 'mao' (cat).
He likes colouring especially with colour pencils. Magic colour is ok, too, but he doesn't seem to fancy crayons.
He has keen interest in the computer but we don't let him play with it except when Julian takes a toilet break. He would say 'air' (short 'a' vowel sound) and point/go to the computer. When Julian is on the computer, he would be on the sofa observing.
He's still the mega TV addict. He now includes Thomas, Wonder Pets, Tom & Jerry and Teletubbies in his 'repertoire'.
He's so hooked on DVDs that he constantly holds two in his hands, even taking them to bed!
He can and likes to do the action for the song "Wheels on the Bus".
He can hold his thumb up (he did it once, but has refused to do any repeats).
He can swirl water in his mouth.
He likes to feed Mummy especially when he doesn't want to eat the food anymore. He would insist on putting the food in Mummy's mouth and would show annoyance if refused.
He is observant and can remember where things are kept. E.g. He indicated where the balloon pump was when Mummy was looking for it; He knows where his shoes are put; etc.
He's improving in the car seat, sitting more often and for longer periods :-) His car seat is positioned behind the driver's seat and he's more likely to sit if we put him in from the door on that side. Slowly but surely, we're getting there...
