14 months

At 14 months old, Elden is walking more frequently each day and has been pulling himself to standing in the middle of the floor without help and taking steps. With this territory also comes several bumps and bruises, but he's certainly persistent. Elden currently wears size 5 shoes and is in primarily 12 month clothing. The biggest battle for us is the pants--size 12M is too short but size 18M is too loose on his waist. Elden can now point out his nose, belly, leg, and belly button and will happily pull your shirt up to look at your button as well. His appetite amazes me; at dinner the other night he ate a whole turkey burger patty, grapes, apricots, a cheese stick, oyster crackers, and a pumpkin cookie. He kept signing 'more' and then when I'd go "MORE!??!" he would giggle knowingly. I think he's working himself down to one 2-hour nap per day because the 2nd nap has been MIA the last three or so days. Elden has slept from 6:30 pm - 7 am the last few days so it's been nice getting a little extra morning snooze. He also seems to make everything into a car--the other night he was pushing mixing bowls upside down along the floor as if they had wheels for about twenty minutes (or, a lifetime in toddler minutes). He's been mostly healthy with the exception of a rash that's been hanging out (and now spreading) for about a week and a half now, so we're going to go ahead and get that checked out. Love this little stinker beyond words!
