14 Months – Toddler or Baby?

Posted by nattya61 on June 19, 2010

Nick walks. Nick naps in his own bed. Nick gave up his pacifier almost a month ago.

Nick still refuses his sippy cup for milk.

Nick ate regular food.

I believe he thought he was growing up too much.


Nick will no longer eat anything other than baby food. He refuses bread, oatmeal, non-pureed green beans and apples. He will whine and cry and simply won’t eat unless it’s pureed jarred baby food. He also will cry in the bathtub if I’m not in the tub with him. He will now fight diaper changes. He will wake up every two hours, sometimes refusing to go back to sleep at all until 3:00AM. We thought he was a handful before. Oh boy!

One angry little boy.

He is definitely a mix of me and Bryan. I was stubborn. Bryan had a temper. I wanted to sleep with Mom and eat only what I was used to the most. Bryan would bang his head on things when he didn’t get his way. We laugh that we brought this on ourselves. It’s payback for putting our parents through who knows what all when we were babies.

I’m hoping it’s just a phase. Though, sometimes his tantrums are cute, and sometimes when I laugh at him he forgets that he was mad at me in the first place.

Our little Nicholas!
