Mr. Enzo is officially 16 months old (as of yesterday). Next week he’ll be in the toddler room full-time and none too soon. It’s crazy watching this boy grow and seeing his personality grow and change. It’s an exciting time, for sure.
This little boy keeps us on toes for sure, and is constantly trying to climb something or push his boundaries in other ways. He’s turning into quite the daredevil, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but also means we have to be a lot more careful about where we leave things and how long we’re gone from a room. 😉
He’s also big on copying what we do, which is fun as well, but can also sometimes be difficult. He’s a great helper when it comes to emptying the dishwasher, but then you have to watch him when you’re actually putting dirty dishes in the dishwasher because he wants to take them all out. :p
As far as communication goes, it gets better and better every day. We actually have to watch certain words and make sure we use them at the right time since he knows exactly what “Bath time” means. We’re also working on getting him to understand and tell us when he needs a diaper change, but that’s still hit or miss. He’s also working on the difference between “Hi” and “Bye” and if he’s in the mood will say them over and over. I may be biased, but it’s the cutest thing ever when he waves and says, “Bye” in that little baby voice of his.
We still have your typical tantrums that come along with the territory, and he’s going through a stage with food lately where he suddenly won’t eat certain foods leaving me with few options, so I have to remind myself that it’s just a stage. I’d say the intensity of his tantrums are already getting better, or at least easier to manage, so that’s a big plus. But who could believe this face would ever be capable of a massive meltdown? 😉
