22 months

Ethan turned 1 year 10 months today. He weights 12.2kg and stands at 86cm. I've yet to check how many teeth he has now but seems like most of them are out except for a few...

Lately he is into books especially those with colorful pictures. He is also into colorful brochures and will look at them as if he knows how to read and will keep pointing to certain part of the brochures to anyone of us. He will also look at them for quite a while - same goes to his books.
