18 Months

18 months? Really? Yesterday Matt & I were talking about how it doesn't seem like it's been 6 months since we celebrated Bennett's 1st birthday. It's only going to be 6 more months until we have a 2-year-old. That just seems crazy to me. I mean, I know it's half a year, but time is just going way too fast.

Bennett had his 18 month well check up today. Here are his stats for this month:
24 lbs- 25th Percentile
33 inches- 72nd Percentile
Bennett Likes:
"Playing" Football
Cars & Trucks
Rock music (like hard rock...blech)
His independence

Bennett Dislikes:
Singing bedtime songs
Eating what I want him to eat
Holding hands to pray

Triumphs this Month:
Talking even more
Really understanding what we say/directions

Struggles this Month:
More defiant when he knows what he wants


  1. happy year and a half, bennett! he and owsley are basically the same size. kid is too huge. he's going to be one of those 300 pound 3 year olds you see on maury. :-/

    anywho, thanks for the link on sperm donors. that actually made me pretty sad. i passed it along to peppy, who couldn't believe it either. i especially appreciated (not) the part where they said that no one would purposely ask for a red headed child. that's bull.

  2. You'll have to let me know when you're scheduled to be on Maury, Deanna. I'll be sure to tune in. ;) Matt is 6 foot 3 & when we got married he only weighed 145lbs & is still well under 200 now. I'm pretty sure Bennett got his dad's tall & skinny genes.

    I would pick another red headed child any day. It's adorable. Just saying. :)
