Another month that has flown by, another month older. 22 months old. I just can’t believe it. I have a full blown boy. A toddler.
Archie is still in 18-24 month clothing with the occasional 2-3 years depending on where it’s from. He is weighing in at 25.5lbs. Last month Archie dropped down from 27lbs to 25.5 lbs and has been at that weight for the last 8 weeks. I think where he is more active now he is burning off a lot of the food he eats appose to storing it.
A week or so ago we attempted to measure his height, he is roughly just under 3 ft. For a toddler this is crazy! I knew he was going to be tall as I’m 5ft 11 and Callum us 6ft 2 but I never thought that he would be nearly 3 ft at under 2 years old.
Archie is now able to say sentences of up to 5 words at a time. He will join words together himself and repeat phrases you say to him. He now randomly says words that I didn’t know he knew. We can be in the car and he will shout out something he spots. Its lovely to see how quickly he is learning and remembering words and phrases.
Last month I touched on how Archie had become really clingy to both Callum and myself. The last few weeks he has been so much better. He now tells me every morning that Daddy has gone to work but he doesn’t cry out for him anymore. He will occasionally get upset when Callum first leaves but can be distracted pretty quickly. With myself he still gets a little upset when I leave for work but as with Callum is getting a lot better. Its such a relief that it was just a phase and that things are going back to normal. I hate leaving him to go to work at the best of times, let alone when hes screaming the place down and shouting out for Mummy.
This month has been a month of festivities. We have been getting into the Christmas spirit with visits to the German bar, vising Father Christmas, beach walks and present wrapping. We had a lovely Christmas at home with my parents, sister and Grandad and then a lovely 2nd Christmas on Boxing Day with Callum’s parents in Tewkesbury.
That’s pretty much all I have to update on this month. Until next month where well only be 1 month away from Archie’s 2nd birthday. How is that even possible!
Love Tilly & Archie xx
