18 Months

*I had hoped to add a couple of pictures to this post but at this rate, he will be months older before I actually get a picture taken and published. Maybe I'll add them another day...or not...clearly blogging has been low on the priority list.*

Titus turned 18 months on Monday! Where has the time gone? I took him for his 18 month appointment yesterday. He remains on the small side - 10-20th percentaile (22 lbs. 15 oz. & 31 inches). As I've mentioned before, he communicates and understands well but does not say many words so we will be working on that for the next few months. I have a feeling that having brothers who speak for him isn't encouraging him to even try. Otherwise, he is right on track and healthy! He does have the start of an ear infection - unusual for him. We are going to start working on weaning him off his pacifier - he really only uses it when sleeping (or sleepy!) and teething. We'll see. I'm not in a huge hurry.

What a sweet blessing he is to our family. I still can't believe (and probably never will!) all that transpired to make him our son. Rarely does a day go by that I don't think of C. She is in my heart forever. So we celebrate the 18 beautiful and amazing months that Titus has been in our family - looking forward to watching our third sweet son continue to grow and develop!

Happy 18 months Titus. He is such a sweet little boy. I agree that lack of speech is due to the fact that he doesn't need to say anything because big brothers have that taken care of.
