Milestones at 16 Months Old

At 16 months old, Jackson has:

--Eliminated his nighttime bottle.
He no longer has any milk before bed.  The transition was easier than expected, with only a few nights of crying.  The last thing we do is brush his teeth and kiss him goodnight.

--Mastered climbing
Jackson has been climbing stairs for a few months, but he has just learned how to climb cabinets and the coffee table.  He has also taught himself how to safely climb down by turning around and going backwards.

--Learned to say "kitty"
Our cat lover points and waves to his feline brother and sister, calling "kitty, kitty, kitty". 

--Started having tantrums
Jack gets easily frustrated when he can't move an object (oftentimes furniture) where he wants or if something is too heavy to pick up.  He will fuss and throw his whole body down, kicking his legs.  If I'm holding him and put him down, or if we won't let him go outside, he makes this face and starts to "cry".

--Got his first haircut
