TYLER IS 16 MONTHS OLD

If you missed Tyler’s 15 month update, you can catch it here.

Development

I feel like this month there are two main things that have come along in leaps and bounds. Firstly, Tyler’s speech. He might not be actually talking yet but he’s sure trying! We have full blown conversations now! Okay, not quite, but when we talk to Tyler he does respond with lots of different sounds and letters, so he must be soaking up all the words right now! Secondly, Tyler’s fine motor skills. The boy is finally playing with things like his building blocks(that we’ve had since before he was born) and stacking them up, rather than just watching me do it and tearing them down! You can really see the concentration in his face when he’s balancing the blocks on top of each other.

Tyler’s new childminder also made a comment about how bright he is, and it did make me swoon a little I won’t lie! As a childminder, she is fully qualified and up to date with the EYFS(Early Years Foundation Stage) so knows all about key developmental stages, so it was really lovely to have her comment on Tyler’s motor skills and development.

 

Teething

We have some very lumpy and angry looking gums on our hands. For the majority of the past month, Tyler seems to have not been all that fussed with teething and has actually been sleeping through the night in his own bed again. The last few nights however have been a little more troublesome. I mentioned in Tyler’s last update that his first top pre molars had cut through and I noticed last week that more of the tooth on each side was starting to show, so I’m almost certain that his recent night wake up calls are down to this.

 

Personality

Tyler is still as cheeky as ever and I love it! He honestly has such a great character developing already and I just love watching him grow as a person every single day. Not a day goes by that a passerby in the street or in a coffee shop doesn’t comment on what a gorgeous smile he has. Of course, I agree, it’s infectious! This boy certainly knows what he wants and more so, what he doesn’t want. He’ll pout and shake his head if he’s offered something he doesn’t want and will raise his hands towards things that he does want. I’ll admit, it is making things a little easier now that he’s learning how to tell us what it is that he wants or needs, but sometimes he just doesn’t want anything. Despite pointing and shouting at certain objects, once he’s got a hold of it, he’ll throw it to the side and cry for the same object… baby logic, right?

Tyler’s Favourites

At the moment Tyler is really into his building blocks and puzzle like toys. He loves stacking the tall, thin building blocks on top of one another, so far his record is four, but he then tries to pick them all up by lifting the bottom block, oops! As for puzzle toys, at Christmas our lovely friend Lyndsay sent Tyler a little wooden puzzle where you have to pop the animals back into the correct shape space and he’s really into it at the moment!

His favourite things to eat are the moment are blueberries, spreddy cheese on toast and whatever I’m eating!!

 

I’m still baffled as to how another month has passed us by. I’ll never stop saying it, but honestly where is the time going?

    I can’t believe how big he’s becoming! I love reading Tylers updates, I think they are actually the only baby updates I read and keep up with. I’ve been invested since day one! Lol! I love his little red hair, it reminds me of Theodore and what his might be like!
    Much love, Caitylis x x

    That’s the cutest little romper! Like so adorable. It’s crazy how quickly they grow isn’t it? I love it when they start to develop a personality and start to be cheeky. My lady is cheeky but full of sass too.

    The idea of doing a monthly update for babies is such a beautiful idea x

    It’s so nice to be able to look back at all of their developments and when they managed to hit them and when it all started happening at once! He sounds like he’s on the best track, well done mama!

    What a little cutie – he’s coming on so well although the fact that he is 16 months is terrifying!
