16 months

At 16 months, Jimmy understands almost everything we talk to him about. He can say these words (some more intelligibly than others, but all in a way we can understand):

  • Mama
  • Dada
  • ball
  • baby
  • no
  • coat
  • book
  • yogurt
  • Yoda
  • milk
  • juice
  • shoes
  • fish
  • Elmo
  • nose
  • turtle
  • rabbit
  • cat
  • dog
  • Dodger
  • Nathan (Ne-Ne)
  • Kayla
  • Josh
  • spoon
  • corn
  • shower
  • bath, bathtub, bathmat
  • pine cone
  • wagon
  • bowl
  • paper
  • puppet
  • lotion
  • cracker
  • bye-bye
  • chalk
  • car
  • garage
  • go
  • window
  • bubble
  • sunshine
  • moon
  • two
  • oh no
  • quack quack
  • tweet tweet
  • moo
  • pee pee
  • poo poo
  • diaper
  • shoot!

Jimmy can point to almost all body parts on himself and others (e.g., Jimmy’s feet, Kayla’s hair, Mama’s nose). He can also climb like crazy, moving boxes or chairs around to get where he wants to go. He loves looking out the window for squirrels and birds. He can take off his coat, shoes, and socks all by himself. He can climb the stairs but is still too nervous to practice going down. He loves to be chased, caught, tickled, and set free to repeat. He loves trucks, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, stuffed animals, and books. And eating. He gives wonderful hugs and kisses.
