Patrick, month 18

month 18
My little bookworm, clutching his favourite book (in Polish) like a security blanket!

It is hard to believe that Patrick is now 18 months old. He had his check up and MMR booster last week and we had the normal measurements. As hubbie would say, he is still a barrel-chested dwarf - he is on the 75th percentile for weight and head circumference, but only the 25th percentile for height!
12.5kg (75%)
81.5cm (25%)
49.5cm head (75%)

He is still an excellent eater and packs away more and more variety than Markus. His sleeping is a bit haywire at the moment, still waking at least once a night for no good reason. He is getting attached to a few favourite books and will find them and bring them over to us. The book he is holiding is a really simple book in Polish, with 5 animals and a few polish words. He can make those animal noises and adores the pictures. His other favourite is the "we're all going on a bear hunt" hardcover. When we get to the "swishy swashy" page ie going through the grass, he sways from side to side.

He has a few words, which we can identify
- Mama
- More
- Pizza (but this might have been a fluke!)
- and can make dog, woof noises

He joins in the games that Markus is playing. He loves Markus's cow trike and ignores the horse trike that we bought him for Christmas! Also likes to push around the toy pram and Markus' scooter if he gets the chance. He is obsessed with his wellington boots and brings them over to us. He can make a good stab at getting them on himself, although they are often both back to front and point the wrong way!
