Seventeen Months

Axel, 2014

On Monday, Axel will be seventeen months old! The last month has been filled with lots of visitors, lots of parties, and lots of new words (bath and duck are recent favorites.) We've also had lots of "No", a few "Yesses", and plenty of opinions.

Axel loves jumping in piles of pillows, trying to open the front door, playing with his magnetic letters, jumping up and down in his crib, climbing everything, exhausting his parents when he's introduced to non-childproofed spaces, and meatballs and fish sticks. It's been chilly and snowy out so we've been spending a lot of time somewhat cooped up indoors with occasional forays to some of the play spaces around the neighborhood. We're also gradually trying to introduce the idea of the new baby into conversation, as Axel is in for a few surprises in the next month or so!

Although he'll give hugs on occasion and very briefly sit in one of our laps, Axel is still such an independent guy. Tonight, I went in his bed to turn off his nightlight as I hadn't heard a peep from him in about 45 minutes and he was wide awake, just quietly chattering to himself, saying "Boo!" and laughing. Must have been an inside joke.

Here's a look back at Sixteen Months Old, Fifteen Months Old, (we skipped fourteen), Thirteen Months Old, Twelve Months Old, Eleven Months Old, and more:
