Paxton James, you are 17 months old today.
What are you up to these days?
Weight 24 pounds
Wearing size 12 or 18 month clothes
Size 4 diaper
You are getting faster and more efficient with your walking skills and you even walk with your hands down by your side more frequently (rather than up above your head).
You have a ton of teeth working their way in...almost have a mouth full of teeth
Obviously with all your stomach issues you are still not a big eater. Dinner time in the evenings is definitely the most stressful time of day for all of us.
Anything your big brother has, you want. Lots of arguing and battling over toys these days.
You currently prefer to whine rather than properly communicate. We are working on it, but for now the days can seem so LONG for you and for me. I know before long you will be talking non-stop, but right now the fit throwing is a constant battle.
You give the sweetest hugs.
Watching you and Maddox give hugs blesses my soul every night.
You love to be outside. You hate when we have to come inside.
You know what you want when you want it and not a second later
Although we haven't seen it very often lately, your smile lights up any room you enter and your laugh is still so contagious.
You are loved. You are precious. You are adored. You are a child of the Lord!!
Oh Paxton we love you so very much. I am so sorry this has been such a rough month for you and I promise I am doing everything with in my power to find some answers and to help you feel better quickly.
