14 Months Old

14 Months and acts like he's three years old! reading through his brother Noah's 14 month update, I'm reminded that he too was a climber, thrill seeker and wanted to act like the big kids, but I have no memory about how annoying & difficult this stage is! Oh my Grayson keeps me busy :) he is constantly climbing things & can even get up on the couch and chair by himself now. It seems that most of my day is pulling him off of the table or side of the staircase. He's learned already how to use the toddler slide downstairs & I have a clear memory of having to "teach" Owen how to do it when he was about 20 months old! 

My little sweetie has a temper when he doesn't get his way! he throws himself on the floor crying and will follow me around whining hoping I give in. We've learned to ignore the behaviour the best we can, I know it's difficult for him to express what he wants & for the most part try to help him through whatever's made him worked up, but you can only do so much.

Grayson is finally cutting his first tooth! last night I felt around his gums to see if I could feel a tooth maybe breaking through & he definitely has a sharp point of a tooth coming through :) It's not one of his front teeth either, it's one on the top left side, maybe even a molar. Really strange. Poor baby has been fighting a coupke of abck to back colds and has spent the last two nights up coughing most of the night. Hopefully when he gets this tooth he'll feel some relief.

He's said a few new words over the last couple of days - he's added yay & boo to his vocabulary & will hide behind something & pop up saying "boo" soooo cute &  interactive this age is. He's also been playing more like the big kids and his new favourite games are playing chase around the kitchen island & playing doggie - crawling around on all fours & panting. It's cute to watch him play with all of the other kids :) The panting is his way of saying "dog" or any four legged animal he sees lol. 

Grayson is still a very happy, smiling baby :) he has started to initiate kisses and even though has so much independence he still loves to be carried and cuddled :)

Happy 14 Months baby!
