Guess who turned 19 months (yesterday)...yep, you guessed it, Maddyx! Friday I was home with Maddyx. I love having Fridays with my boy. It's the best. As I write this, Maddyx is napping and Mama is enjoying Adele's newest album, 21. It's a gloomy and cold (mid 50's) San Diego day. Perfect for hanging in your jammies.....for most of the day. I say *most of the day* because we do have plans to visit some dear friends and their son this evening, which will require me to actually get dressed.
So what does 19 months look like in our house? It looks like a 29 pound 13 oz little boy who stands a whopping 34 inches tall. Yep, he's a big boy folks. As if you hadn't noticed. Over 98th percentile in all categories. Being this big at 19 months does mean a little extra clumsiness, which leads to a lot of extra tumbles. But that's okay, because this little guy is really tough!
What's new at 19 months you ask? Well Maddyx is obsessed with "up" right now. *Up* the stairs, *up* on our lap, climbing *up* on the chairs, and even standing *up* on things we are not supposed to stand *up* on. Sigh. We've also been working on getting in our final molars. Which has been surprisingly easy. Pheew! I was thinking that was going to be a lot of crying and a lot of sleepless nights. Not so much. Thank goodness!! And I can't forget to mention that we had our FINAL post-placement visit with our social worker this week. Which means we are on the home stretch of finalizing our adoption of Maddyx. Exciting stuff!
So now that I've told you what 19 months looks like, why don't I also show you!
