My seventeen month old skeleton

Toddler at seventeen months update

On Monday a seventeen month-and-three-quarters old skeleton took down my fairy lights and used pieces of fruit bread to decorate our room. Said skeleton refused to stay still or show his face, producing

 mysterious giggles upon confrontation. This is Oscar’s first Halloween where he knows a lot more about what is going on, and we are enjoying tucking in to gingerbread mummies and dressing up!

Moving around One of the biggest advancements of late is his mobility. He is becoming ever confident with walking, running stomping and staggering and can now walk for longer periods, going round the corner to the park, without having to be carried. He can also leave the floor when he jumps!

 Speech Oscar is very good at making himself understood. He loves to ask ‘urrrdurrrduduuu-dadadad?’ when Mitch is at work, promptly followed by ‘gung’, which makes me wonder if he means ‘gone’. Other possibilities are ‘Hugo’ or ‘Granddad’. If it is a person, they are indeed very popular! Sometimes he will say a word clear as day never to repeat it again! When he knows something to be dirty he goes ‘ewwww’ and wafts his hand about, whereas something delicious elicits a series of appreciative noises.

Play He is utterly obsessed with wheels and lights and has accumulated a whole horde of technicolor windmills that are forever needing new batteries as he tends to them for hours at a time. There was also an adorable moment recently when we were playing music – Oscar came in and started aggressively dancing, bopping up and down and wriggling his bum and didn’t want to stop! I could have cried. Another favourite game is to leave the fridge and cupboard doors wide open, the little monkey. 

However, he seems to love nothing more than play fighting and chasing us round the flat, screaming and giggling whenever I shout ‘Booo!’. It’s so funny and lovely to watch him developing his own persona. I remember Mitch and I always used to wonder, ‘Who is this baby?’ ‘I wonder what they’ll be like?’ and now we are discovering a little more every day, a bit like unwrapping a big, bossy, boisterous present.

Who would have thought that our baby’s idea of a perfect evening would be to sit watching In the Night Garden with his chocolate milk and peas? Thank you so much for entering my Too Faced giveaway, I am so excited and can hardly wait until November! Are you dressing up for Halloween? Oscar’s skele costume is from Asda George and I have been been making a few pretty edits to his page here

    Oscar's Halloween costume is so cute! Asda always makes awesome Halloween stuff. I really enjoy following Oscar's development, it must be so fascinating to see him do new things, say new words (even if he just says it once!) and be more aware of the world around him! 😀
