17 Month Update

It’s so funny to me, that even though it’s bittersweet watching him grow up, Jake is more fun to me at every new stage than he was at the one before.  His personality has grown so much in just a few short months.  And his vocabulary is quickly following.  He can now easily let you know yes or no by head shakes (and also a rather sassy face, sometimes accompanied by the word no), sign for food or milk, and point out just about anything he wants.  He knows lots of his body parts, as well as some animal sounds (woof! meow!).  He is so sweet and kind-hearted, and he loves other children (Aww! Baby!).

Breastfeeding is still awesome.  He’s definitely not nursing nearly as much, and he’s come a long way with using his sippy cups in the past month.  I am really trying to get him off of bottles, but am facing some resistance (from my MIL who watches him, not from him). I’m still pumping.  I’m officially back to having a menstual cycle, though, so we will probably start trying for baby #2 in about 6 months or so.  Overall, Jake is doing absolutely amazing, and he makes our life so joyful!
