18 months with Mr. H

Last Monday was Hayden's 18 month birthday. A year and a half feels kind of momentous so I thought I'd share some updates about our sweet little guy! He is a full blown toddler and it's so fun to be his momma at this age. 
Eating: Like I mentioned, Hayden has gotten a little more picky in the last month or so. He still eats a pretty varied diet, but he lets his preferences be known. He is in the 5th percentile but is growing at his own pace!
Talking: This kid is a chatterbox. He carries on conversations with us and loves to play call us on any object that he can pretend to be a phone. He practices new words all the time, and it seems like he's saying new things everyday. The latest ones this week are: jacket, Daddy (instead of dada), gotcha, slide,  help me, open and shut, clothes, and sky (since we were on a plane with him). He used to only say "yeah" (yes), but he started saying "noooo" this month.  His no is very polite and not defiant (yet) and more just an answer to a question. He answers yes and no questions pretty appropriately these days.
Playing: He love, love, loves the park and we can easily spend 2+ hours there in one day (thank goodness for mild CA winters!). He also loves to play with building blocks, puzzles, and his car. He loves reading books too, both independently and with Momma. (Daddy is for playtime so they don't get as much reading done ;) 
Sleeping: His sleep was a little iffy after New Year's but he's gotten back on his normal schedule in the last couple weeks. He usually goes to sleep at 7pm and sleeps until 7am. He takes one nap a day for about 2-3 hours. He always sleeps with his owl lovey, his blanket, and his paci. 
Temperament: Mr. Easy-Going continues his trend. He loves to blow kisses, give hugs, and play with his friends. Hayden is so silly and loves to laugh, be tickled and make his Momma and Daddy laugh. He's the sweetest! He is usually really happy, though like all of us, he has his moments! We are starting to see some tantrums but they are really mild so far....
