As yesterday's entry mentioned, G is now a year and a half old (a fact I'm sure you're sick of hearing by now!). To commemorate his 18th month with us, we started using his Batter Up Growth Chart my friend Joleen so fabulously picked up for us during her recent trip to Chicago. The growth chart comes with markers for each birthday ("I turned 1 today"). Since we didn't have the chart to measure him when he turned one, we started at his 18 month "birthday" by adding a "1/2" after the 1!!!.

I wasn't sure if he'd stand still long enough to actually measure him and take a picture, but I think we got pretty lucky. He's a shortie, just like Mommy and Daddy -- all torso and no legs -- measuring at 31" exactly.

I'm looking forward to his upcoming pediatrician appointment to see how much weight he's gained, I'm guessing he's right around 24.5 pounds. He's wearing size 24 month or 2T clothing, size 6.5 wide shoes (my little square footed kid!) and is a strong little bugger - always pushing furniture around the house and building those muscles!!

He's not the only one getting big around here. Only 9 weeks, 4 days to go now!

Me and Cecilia - 30 weeks
