I’m two months away from having a one year old. Someone hold me.
Let’s start with that. A month
ago, you were doing all these really cute noises and sounds, and you were
slowly wiggling your tushy down the hall trying to crawl. Little did I know that you were planning a super-crazy-caper
this month. So there we were: home for the holidays, and you stand on your own two feet. Then, you decide that literally everything in
existence is now a climbing tree. And, if that wasn’t enough (it was by the
way), you decided to forgo baby food and focus on eating the real stuff. As a result, your mama and I have had to
re-do the den and make it more you-proof.
entire holidays. I’m not kidding when I call
you a cutie-patootie, but now I have proof. Everywhere we went last month, someone came
up to you just to let you know how adorable you were, it was pretty amazing. You also racked up an impressive pile of
presents this year from your grand, and great-grand parents. I suspect that as you get older (and probably
even cuter), that your piles of loot will increase.
Nicknames: same ol’ same ol’…Poopers, Sweet Pea, Honey Bear, Pumpkin Butt, and about 15 more at any given time
Likes: speed crawling around the house, standing, cruising, yogurt, steak, water, tearing paper (and making a mess), your remote control toy, making the “scrunchy face”!!!
Dislikes: putting you down for a nap (the time change and traveling messed with your sleep patterns)
Milestones: Standing on your own. The first time I saw you do that (stand from a seated position) I flipped out.
Weight/Height: No well-baby this month, but I’m thinking 17.5 lbs and possibly around 30 inches?
Clothing Size: 6 and 6-9 months for most everything. You have to wear bigger pants, because you have long legs, but then they’re too big for you in the waist.
Sleep: Eh. You’ve done better. Traveling messed you up for sleeping through the night and naps. It took a couple days once we got home, but then you got back on track.
Random Tidbits: You like mimicking people and started making this adorable scrunchy face all the time!
How are Mommy and Daddy Doing?: Doing good! I think we’re finally finding our groove as parents (which means things will change since I just said that). We got to go out alone for the first time since before you were born and it was so nice. Of course, we were nervous and talked/thought about you pretty much the whole time!
