Will – 19 months

by Chelsea Myers on June 22, 2016

At 19 months, Will:

  • Loves ice cream (and black olives, which are so not my favorite).


  • Can name family members (Mommy, Daddy, Scott, Gramma, Gramma (Grandpa), Nana, Papa) and himself and recognizes himself in pictures


  • Points to things and says, “Right there!” if you ask him where something is.  If you ask him where his belly button is, he might show you or he might say, “Hiding.”
  • Was 32.5 inches tall (50th %ile), 22lbs 11oz in weight (28th %ile), and had a head circumference of 19.28 in (87th %ile) at his last physical.
  • Loves exploring and play with brother.



  • Likes to play wrestle and tickle.
  • Has no fear jumping in the pool and loves to swim to the side.
  • Enjoys eating off other people’s plates and feeding them bites.
  • Is sitting in a forward facing car seat and climbs in by himself.  “I climbing!”
  • Does not sleep past 6am.
  • Can name all the Thomas the Tank Engine trains.
  • Builds with Duplos.
  • Stacks blocks.
  • Says, “I carry you!” when he wants to be picked up and “Up and down!” when he wants to be released from his crib.
  • Enjoys going to the playground, story time at the library, the swimming pool, and the science center.
  • Likes to ride in the stroller with me while I run.
  • Says, “I understand” and “Okay” if you have a discussion with him (not that he really knows what it means).
  • Is starting to take an interest in colors.
  • Can count to 10 and has named the stuffed robot 8-9-10.
  • Is probably ready for a scooter of his own.
  • Will start preschool this fall.
  • Is doing swim lessons again starting in July.
  • Is going to learn to be a big boy thanks to Scott’s help.



This time last year, Will as at peak cuteness at 7 months old.


Two years ago, we were waiting to find out if Will was a boy or a girl.
