12 Month Update

Height: 30 3/4 inches - 90%
Weight: 21 pounds - 50%
Head Circumference: 18.5 inches - 90%
Movement: You are a WALKER!! You started out a little slow, but now you are running around the house. Occasionally, a sniper will get you and you just fall down out of the blue, but you are pretty good on your feet! It is so nice having you walking especially around the house. You have pretty much mastered going up and down a step while standing up so that's great!
Eating Habits/New Foods: New foods this month have been: pickles (which you absolutely love sucking on), whole peas, mushrooms, chicken fajitas, chicken salad, vanilla wafers (a new favorite), lobster, yobe yogurt/ice cream, funfetti pancakes and your very own birthday cake!!
You are doing drinking 2 bottles a day; one 4 oz bottle in the morning and an 8 oz bottle before bed. I
 have transitioned the bottles to sippy cups and am starting to mix the formula with a little milk to get you used to the milk. Hopefully we will be off the formula soon! (Thank you Jesus!)
Sleeping Patterns: Still sleeping through the night...and doing a short 30 min morning nap and maybe a hour nap during the afternoon.
Sounds/Words: You said bye bye as well as dog this month. You are still loving the word no and walk around saying no no no to everything.  I think you are getting pretty close to saying the word more, but for now you are just loving your sign language. We added thank you to the list of signs we do. There is nothing cuter than you pointing at something and rubbing your chest to say please. It is so hard to say no though when you ask so nicely! :)
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You are walking!
-You celebrated your first birthday with birthday pancakes, time with family, and one heck of a birthday party
-You had your very own birthday cake that you got to eat all by yourself
-You grab the hairbrush and try to brush your own hair
-You are learning to throw balls
-You sit on your car and push yourself backwards.
New Friends I've made: You didn't meet anyone new, but you definitely had a great time playing with 9 of your friends at your birthday party. Actually you met Daddy's co-worker Mike's son, Sean. Everyone had so much fun playing in the empty baby pool and hanging out by the picnic. Your friends that were there are: Braelyn, Collins, Haigan, Camdyn, Joni, Wyatt, Declan, Dean, & Sean.
Places you went/Adventures: We have been frequenting the zoo a lot lately. We also have been going to the pool and beach and signed you up for swim lessons in June. You celebrated your birthday for an entire week and had a great time shopping and planning for the party.
Clothes: You are in 18 month sleepers. These are your current sizes: Gymboree-6-12 and some 12-18, Target- 12 months (The shirts are short), Carter-12 , Old Navy/Gap- 12-18
You are in a size 4 diaper.
