I just can’t belive my sweet baby boy is 18 months already. Time is going by way too fast.
I often find myself looking at him and still not believing that he’s mine. Still not believing that I have been blessed with this precious miracle.
Life in Indiana has been good. I recently changed positions at my job and I’m loving my new job. It’s also been a struggle and at the same time a rewarding experience to have Tom travel so very often. I’m not going to lie, I don’t like not having my husband at home for such a long stretch and it can be very challenging sometimes.
With that being said, it has also made my son and I to be so very close with each other. I love spending time with him and playing with him and acting so very silly. Patryck makes me forget about our day-to-day problems and just enjoy our time together.
I don’t love the tantrums and throwing himself on the floor because he can’t get what he wants shows but I guess that’s part of life right?
Patryck has been growing so fast. Everyday he does something completely new and that just blows my mind. He talks more and more each day and as much as I’ve been trying to write down every word he says I often don’t understand them and or forget to write them down.
So, I have compiled a list of words that he uses everyday and that I remembered to write down. LOL
I came up with 30 words. I’m not sure if he should be saying more or less than what he currently is but according to his doctor he can get a little confused since we are teaching him two languages (English and Portuguese).
Here’s our list.
Patryck’s Words at 18 months
- Papa = eat in Portuguese
- Coco = our dog
- E-shey = Hershey our dog
- Oh-io = oreo our dog
- Mohr = more
- Papple = apple
- Lulu = boy part in Portuguese
- Ooh-ne = phone
- Nana = banana. But now he’s saying banana
- Gol = gol from a soccer game
- Ookie = cookie
- Night night
- Baba = blanket
- Bibi – binkie/pacifier
- Ikey = Mickey mouse
- Bah = bath
- Senta = means sit in Portuguese
- Nu nu = yogurt (sounds a lot like noh noh)
- Bye bye
- Pao = bread in Portuguese
- Ucie – juice
As you can see not all of them are complete words and he hasn’t yet made a full sentence but he’s getting there.
One thing I have to add is what a big flirt this little boy is. The other day he was in the process of receiving a gift when he noticed a little girl at the end of the hall. I kid you not, he dropped everything and walked to her and got her to come with him to play with the toy. It was the most adorable thing EVER. If he’s this way at 18 months what am I going to get when he’s 18?? ai ai ai
