Beck at 17 Months

In my eyes, Beck is very much still a baby. And then I see another child close to his age and think that they look like a toddler and can’t believe that my nugget isn’t so little anymore. Then I force him to give me a hug while he squirms away from my grasp. Begin again.

At 17 months, Beck:


– Has three stamps in his passport
– Primarily scoots for transport
– Loves to do the actions to Five Little Monkeys
– Has discovered the joys of chocolate and knows how to ask for it
– Is fascinated with the process of putting on shoes
– Loves pointing out babies
– Created his first crayon drawing on the wall and tried his first taste of crayon (to which his response was, “yuck!”)
– Is a social butterfly
– Learns at least two new words a day
– Perches on every ledge he comes across
