Major Milestones for 18 Months:
-Walking and Running EVERYWHERE
-Climbing up and down stairs by yourself
-Can climb down stairs while holding the banister or a wall
-Eating solids a lot more
-About 8 new teeth are breaking through, two on either side of your existing 8 teeth.  You are constantly putting your fingers in your mouth and occasionally drooling, but it is all good!

Notable events this month:

Sleep Schedule:
-You sleep 1-2 naps a day, sometimes one nap
