12-14 MONTH UPDATE

I am the worst when it comes to Evan's monthly updates. I thought it would be a great idea to begin this not only for you to read but for myself. I tend to forget the little things, and this is a great way to keep up with how fast my little guy is growing. 
GROWTH: Evan weighs 22 pounds and 31 inches tall. He is currently wearing 12-18 months. 
CURRENT WORDS AND OTHER MILESTONES: Oh my where to begin. He talks so much. His favorite words are agua(water), jugo(juice), auto(car), mama, papa, broom broom, quack, moo, uh uh ah ah, along with many other unknown words and sounds. He is starting to imitate all words and movements. Dad really has to watch his words now days. Haha Evan oficially started walking at 12 months, and now he is almost running. We are currently working on body parts and the number 1,2, and 3. He amazes me every single day. He is a little smarty pants. 
TEETH AND SLEEP: He has 12 teeth total. He takes one long nap or two short naps during the day. I put him to sleep around 9 p.m. and since I'm still breastfeeding he wakes up 2-3 times at night to feed. The latest he will sleep in is until 8-8:30 a.m. On rare occasions until 9 a.m. 
FAVORITE FOOD: Beans, carrots, green beans, chicken, and strawberries. He loves to snack on yogurt or any fruit. Honestly he will eat just about anything. I will confess I struggled in the beginning. I was convinced he was a picky eater, until his pediatrician informed me that there was no such thing as a picky eater. She told me to give him everything and anything. If he rejected that specific food to give him something else and eventually try that same food again. Her advice has worked great. 
FAVORITE TOYS AND ACTIVITIES: He loves being outside. I think he'd rather explore outside than be inside with his toys. He loves reading books and talking on the phone. He was given this Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Stride-to-Ride Puppy Laugh & Learn Stride-to-Ride Puppy as a birthday gift and he's been obsessed ever since. Anything with shapes and blocks will keep him entertained. He loves taking baths and being with mom. 
LEAST FAVORITE ACTIVITIES: He isn't a fan of diaper and outfit changes. He moves and screams until it's over. I have to sing for him to hold still. 

EXTRA COMMENTS: Watching him grow is the best feeling ever. He is active and so smart. Everything fascinates him and watching him explore is so exciting. We consider ourselves very lucky.
