13 Months

It is hard to believe you are already 1.  You are growing and developing so quickly.  You are now cruising along furniture and trying to stand alone.  This month you learned to wave, clap blow kisses and how to drink out of a sippy cup.   You are also starting to understand how every day items work.  When I hand you a comb you try to brush your hair and you put my cell phone up to your ear. Each day you continue to amaze me with your intelligence.  We continue to embrace the moment and look forward to what the future will bring.  I know I have said it a million times but you have changed my life in such a wonderful way and my understanding of unconditional love.  I had no idea it was possible to love someone as much as I love you!

Weight: 18 lbs.

Length: 29 inches

Size: Mostly 9 month and a few 12 month clothes.  You are still wearing size 3 diapers.

Feeding Schedule:  You are eating more table food each day.  Your favorites are pears, yogurt, cheese, and chicken.  You continue to nurse 3-5 times a day.  You have started drinking organic whole milk at daycare which you love but refuse to drink at home.

Sleeping Schedule: You are sleeping through the night most nights.  You go to sleep around 7:00 pm and wake up around 5:30 am.  You take a two hour morning nap and a two hour afternoon nap. 

Likes: You love water, animals and music. 

Dislikes:  Your car seat and strangers

Events: This last month was very exciting as we prepared for your 1st birthday.  We had your first birthday bash at home.  All your friends and family came to celebrate your first year of life.  The day was just perfect and you loved the bounce house, clowns and cake! This month you started swim lessons which you love.  It is pure joy to watch daddy teach you to swim.  We also bought a Zoo membership which has been lots of fun.  We have already been to the Zoo 4 times and have many more Zoo dates in mind.  Mid month we celebrated Father's Day.  We made daddy breakfast and you painted him a beautiful picture.  The months are passing too quickly but they jammed packed with fun and love!
