It’s hard to believe Aiden is almost two years old! He celebrated 21-months while we were in Montreal and I am just now getting to post about it! Here is Aiden’s 21-month update.
HAPPY 21 MONTHS AIDEN!
Aiden is 32 inches and 25 pounds. He is lively and sharp. There aren’t many people who meet him who don’t instantly love him.
We have seen his greatest development, by far, in the last three months (you can check out his 18-month update here). His language skills are really good. He is putting together simple statements and sentences like “Aiden running”, “More, buddy”, “Oatmeal is hot” (and will blow on it), and “where is mommy/daddy/Aiden/object” followed by “there it is”. He can identify colors and objects so he will say yellow school bus, blue car, white truck, police car, fire truck, blue whale, giraffe, fishes, etc. He can provide sound effects for most objects and animals too.
He has always had a lot of personality but he is still as charming as ever, especially now that he can talk. He is very polite and says “bless you” if someone coughs or sneezes, “thank you” if someone gives him something, and “hello” and “goodbye” whenever he meets new people. He is great at repeating whatever Dan or I tell him so it’s a lot of fun to hear him say new things.
He can count to nineteen in both english and spanish. He switches from english to spanish fairly easily. He prefers some words in spanish like “mas” for more and “agua” for water. He still loves to sing and he knows tons of songs. His favorites are definitely “The Wheels on the Bus” and “Row Your Boat”, and “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”, He still loves to dance and sing to “Believer” by Imagine Dragons and “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi/Daddy Yankee/Justin Bieber.
Aiden still loves to eat. His favorite foods are any kind of fruit, chicken, and tacos. He doesn’t love vegetables so we have been trying creative ways to get more veggies in his diet. He has 14 teeth so it’s a lot easier for him to eat apples and other harder foods. He is also getting better at brushing his teeth (you can read more about that here).
He still sleeps about 12 hours. He goes to bed around 7pm and wakes up around 7am. He takes a 1.5-2 hour nap in the early afternoon, right after lunch.
Aiden is very playful. His favorite toys are balls (and he has quite an arm), blocks, cars, and trains. He loves the movies Moana, Finding Dory, and Trolls.
We are so lucky to have a happy and healthy little guy!
