George – 21 Months

Timeline: As of last Thursday, George is 21 months old!


How We’re Feeling: in a word – fabulous. George, John and I are healthy. Amen!

How George is Changing: George weighed in at 21.7 pounds at his 18 month doctor’s visit and was 32 inches long. I don’t have new stats to share, but we’re fairly certain that George just went through another growth spurt because he sure is feeling heavy and is stretching out. George is exclusively wearing 18-24 month sized clothing these days and, as I mentioned last month, many of them are already too small.

George continues to be a great eater and is currently in a hotdog-pasta-soup-melon-grape love fest. He also loves chocolate.

George continues to add lots of words to his vocabulary. He can also count to 2 and recognizes the numbers too. We love communicating with George and it is fascinating to watch him learn and expand his capabilities.

We still haven’t seen “new teeth.” We are currently still holding at sixteen teeth. Hallelujah!

George is still sleeping 10 to 11.5 hours straight at night and 2 to 3 hours during the day in his crib. He occasionally wakes up in the middle of the night, but George is generally a great sleeper.


How I’m Changing (Body After Baby): I am still down 85 pounds and feeling great.  More on this topic later. I still have lots to share here!

How I’m Staying Active: Running, walking and strength training are still my exercise of choice these days. I’m still doing a new-to-me strength training program and hope to detail it in a blog post soon.

What’s Keeping Me Busy: In addition to being a Mom, I am still working full-time (from home) and am traveling significantly for work these days. However, I am blessed to be able to see George when I work from home, and I take full advantage of this perk as much as I can.  I have also been very active socially (having more lunches and outings with friends), and have been busy planning and organizing upcoming family celebrations and trips.

What’s New with George: It seems like everything is new with George!

George is still a BIG fan of water.  George is still using his baby pool several days per week and loves to wash his hands and play with the water hose. We also signed George up for private swim lessons and he has had 4 already. So far, so good.


What’s New at Cliffwood: …Still don’t want to jinx anything.  More on this in coming days!
