Drew – 12 Months Old

Drew,

You are ONE YEAR OLD!  It seems like just yesterday I was doing laps around the neighborhood, eating spicy foods, and begging the doctor to predict the future and tell me you’d be born SOON!  Well, you were worth the wait!  We could not have imagined a more perfect little boy to join our family.  You have been so patient with us this year as we’ve adjusted to two children and have brought us more joy than we ever could have imagined!

At 12 months you are:
19 lbs 7 oz (20%)
30 inches (55%)
Head Circumference: 18 1/2 (75%)

You are wearing 6-12 month clothes and a size 3 diaper.  Your feet are so small and you’re still a size 2.

You exude JOY!  You are so happy.  We have seen glimpses of small little tantrums but I still think they’re cute. :)  You just fall over on the floor and cry for a second and then look up to see if we’re watching.  Which we’re probably not because we’ve got a big tantrum going on somewhere else.
Jokes. 
Sorta.

You aren’t walking yet but can stand for a couple seconds on your own and have taken a few steps.  I just don’t think you’re interested because you can get places faster crawling!

You have started drinking some whole milk and are nursing twice a day.  Hopefully by next month we will have transitioned completely to whole milk.  You love all food except fruit.  You throw it off your highchair tray immediately and have even picked the fruit out of muffins.  What gives?

Isn’t this the funniest thing?  You just kept doing this cheesy smile today – I love it!  

Silly boy.  You aren’t into toys as much as your brother.  You love tupperware, emptying out cabinets, exploring the house, and being outside.  I think you are going to be a handful in another year!

I think we are starting to transition down to 1 nap a day.  Some days you take 2 naps well and others not so much.  This is around when Jake switched so I might change it soon.  You sleep great at night and go to bed around 7 and get up around 7:30-8.

You also say a couple words!  You say “mama”, “Uh Oh”, “dog” (dah or gah), and Tucker “ga kuh” (or something like that).  You LOVE your doggies and will crawl under our bed to get to them.

Drewbie, We love you!  You have been a blessing this year and I hope the next year crawls along because I don’t want you to be 2!
