17 months

Development: We have a walker!  He has also stopped nursing and showed an increase appreciation for books.  He has discovered he can open door handles.  When it is the front door he opens he quickly gets off the top step and gets as far as he can down the walkway before we get back from the garbage can.

Physical:  Top two molars have now come through and the top left canine tooth.

Sleeping:  Morning nap is now just a time to have him contained while I take a shower.  He is often quiet, but if I look at the camera he is moving around during that “nap.”  He may not sleep because more than half the time he has pooped when we go get him.  Afternoon nap is an hour many days with bedtime at 7.  Mornings are starting around 6am.  The benefit is that we are all up in plenty of time to wave goodbye to Daddy from the front porch as he heads to the bus stop.

Firsts:  Standing independently, walking, water slide, open door handles, final nursing
