Atticus at 17 months
Atticus is 17 months old today. I am writing a brain dump of little things that I don't want to forget about him at this age.
--He has lots of words and the occasional sentence.
--He is still nursing frequently, but has started to drink the occasional few ounces of cows' milk. He calls cows milk "Dada mulk". When Atticus wants a cup of milk, he asks for a "puck-a-mulk".
--He is so quick to tantrum, and I have to stop myself from laughing at how cute his tantrums are. He often throws himself on the floor and marine crawls backwards as he screams.
--He loves playing with toy cars and with animal figurines.
--He is particularly attached to a couple of action figures of Mario and Luigi. He calls Luigi "Weeji"
--Atticus loves dirt. He earns his baths.
--His nap schedule is erratic, but barring illness or teething he sleeps through the night.
--When it rains, he stands at the door yelling "Wawa" (water) over and over again.
--He loves all kinds of foods except for broccoli. Oh the faces he makes when he bites into broccoli!
--Recently when he bit me on the shoulder he apologized by saying "Na bite. Na eat." and making lots of kissing noises.
--If he spills something, he will gladly wipe it up with a rag.
--He still loves playing with balls.
--He calls Little Ish "brother" and Lily "Lilla".
--He sings and dances a lot. Occasionally when I am singing him a bedtime song he'll stop me if I mess the notes up (sometimes by singing the right notes back at me).
