Baby Schedule 18 Months

Here's what Henry is doing in a typical day:

18 Months - 1 Nap Schedule

7:30 Wake

11:30 Lunch
1:00-3:00 Nap
3:30 Snack

We've had a banner 3 months here! Henry wasn't walking or talking much at 15 months and now it seems like that is all he does. He prefers being on his feet now, seldom crawls, and is a pro at crouching down to pick something up and then standing back up. He is saying tons of words! I opened up these Great Wooden Peg Puzzles he'd received as a gift and they have been a fabulous learning tool. He's learned colors, numbers from zero to nine, and knows most of his letters. He also really loves animals. His toys and books have taught him animals I wouldn't even have thought to teach him - like yak and squid. Just a few weeks ago, he learned the word "no" and he asks for "help" closing the lid on his water bottle or if he can't get in a puzzle piece. 

After some rocky transition attempts at 15 months, Henry settled comfortably back into his regular 2-nap schedule. He continues to be tired by 10:30 in the morning so takes that morning nap. A few times recently, he has not napped when put down at 10:30 so he's gotten up, had lunch, and then taken the single afternoon nap that is typical for most older toddlers.

We didn't have nearly as much trouble as I had anticipated with daylight savings last month! He had a rough Sunday when the time transitioned, but on Monday he resumed his regular 2-naps at their normal time - technically one hour later. As he was napping until 4:30 or 5, he kept his 8 p.m. bedtime even though it was technically 9 p.m. For a few weeks, he woke a little early, 6:45-7:00, but then he transitioned back to waking around 7:30. 

Loves his puzzles!
