Today Reid is 17 months old and that is awesome! Let me explain…
Since the moment I started following blogs of other parents that have children with achondroplasia, I have been in love with this age! To me, this is THE cutest, squishiest, most adorable age for kids with achondroplasia.
See what I mean by “squishiest”?!!
When I had Spencer and Briggs I was more into the nine month age. With Reid, I’m all about the 17 months! Although, I am looking forward to two and when he’s walking. This weekend, I just could not stop snapping photos and videoing him. Reid is sitting up really well now and he’s also pulling up on low furniture and CRUISING!! Yesterday was slipcover washing day around here and the couch – the cushions = big hit for Reid.
He would immediately crawl over, pull up, and cruise back and forth. Of course, we kept moving objects to the other side to get him to turn around and do it again…had to see it more than once.
He’s sitting up in the shopping carts when we go out now which has him receiving all kinds of new attention. He’s also sitting up well in restaurant highchairs which is a whole new freedom for Rico and I. Yay! I can’t wait to see where this little man is headed.
He just LOVES watching movies on the brothers’ iPads!
