Zach: Sixteen Months

Over a week late in writing & posting this. But things have been a bit hectic recently as our lil Z man wasn’t feeling well for 2+ weeks!

He missed 8 days of daycare & spent time home with me, my husband & 4 days last week with his Pops. His stomach issues settled down last week, his fever went away Thurs & rash was gone by Sat night. I think he had stomach bug plus Roseola. After all that, we thankfully *finally* have him back to his healthy smiling self!

And while the post is delayed, I did actually manage to take 16 month photos on the 21st.

Zach is still book obsessed. The only way I was able to get him to sit still long enough for me to snap a photo was by putting Little Blue Truck part two in his hands. I think Pops lost track of how many times he read Zach Good Night Trucks while he watched him last week.

Because of his sicknesses, Z man was weighed a bunch at the doctor recently. The highest weight was 21 lbs! Woohoo! We’ve graduated him into all 12 month clothes. I’ve just washed some short sleeve 18 mo rompers since we weren’t able to make his 12 mo ones snap. He’s a tall but skinny Lil Dude. Size 3 disposables still fit & since his diaper rash is gone {he was on 2 prescription ointments}, we were able to start cloth diapering him this Tuesday morning.

Zach’s on an organic plain yogurt with bananas kick. Loves the stuff! Which has worked out great to pump him full of probiotics too. He’s also a fan of sliced pears, goldfish, chicken tenders, grilled cheese sandwiches & wants to try whatever we’re eating from us even if it’s already on his tray!

He’s still doing well with sippy cups & up to 4 oz whole milk topping rest off with an oz or two of pumped milk. We tried to push water or watered down Gatorade or juice when he was sick. No thanks to Gatorade or pedilite. He only likes water at restaurants when he can suck it out of a straw. He sampled apple juice at Costco & was loving it, but he only likes it so/so at home. I’m okay with him enjoying drinking milk best & {hopefully} continuing to pack on the pounds.

Zach is a busy dude now that he’s back healthy. Running everywhere! Riding on their toys. Pushing their car & popcorn poppers. Bouncing & bopping to music. He likes to be chased, & he laughs & laughs when you tickle his toes or kiss his neck. He might be a soccer start as much as he likes to kick balls & he has fun throwing balls too.

His wubba pacis still aren’t far away. His Monkey he called Monk Monk the other night. He will throw them down if he wants to drink, play or talk though. He has been saying more lately including telling us ‘all done’ {a sign & phrase I’ve been doing for months} after dinner Mon night. I think that might’ve been his first two word phrase. He’s started calling J Daddy instead of Dada too.

My lil guy is growing up! Happy {very belated} 16 months Zach!
