How in the world did we get here? How is he already 1? I still can’t believe it. It has been an amazing year with this beautiful little guy of ours. It’s been a crazy journey with lots of love, laughter and a few tears. Diz and I are so in love with this little guy of ours. (I can see why people have more than one child – which we will… EVENTUALLY.) It’s been so fun to watch him grow and learn and become his own little person. Seeing little bits of his personality shine through has been a joy to watch.
Weight: 26 lbs 15 oz! (98%)
Height: 31.5” (95%) he may be big, but at least he’s proportionate.
Doctor Appt: If I’m being honest, I was worried about his 1 year check. I was worried about his size, the amount he’s eating & drinking, and all the other Momma worries. Luckily, everything was FINE! LOL. I worry too much. His ped is very pleased with his growth and there were no mentions of baby dieting. Ha! We had to fill out a little questionnaire (called Ages & Stages Questionnaire) before his appt and he was right where he needed to be.
Nicknames: Baby Ford, Bubbie, Bub, Bubba, Winnie, Winnie the Pooh, Fordy Ford
Eating: We are on 3 (sometimes 4) bottles a day. Working on getting rid of the bottle. I’m not looking forward to it. Eating all the time! LOL. This kid loves to eat. And he’s becoming more independent and wanting to feed himself.
Sleeping: Like a baby! Ha! Going down a little earlier lately, closer to 8-8:30 and sleeping til 6:30/7. He takes 2 naps a day. One long one (1.5-2 hours, if we’re lucky he might even go 3! Though it’s rare!) and a shorter morning nap (30 mins-1 hour), very rarely he will rake a little cat nap late in the afternoon (15-30 minutes) – usually it’s the car ride home from work.
Diapers: Still in 4s
Clothing: 18 months. I’ve started buying some 18-24 month stuff to prepare for Fall & Winter.
Social/Milestones: Started walking a few days before his birthday! Watch out world! He’s cutting his 2 middle teeth (no more vampire teeth) and 1 (maybe 2) on the bottom.
Likes: Eating. Giving big, open mouth kisses to everyone, even Olivia. Brushing his teeth. All the ladies at his daycare (especially Patty & Brooke).
Dislikes: When Daddy (and sometimes Mommy) leaves the room. When Olivia steals his animal crackers. Drinking milk from a sippy. Getting out of the bathtub.
Momma & Daddy: Doing great. Having some issues with the backyard (floods when it rains! ACK!) but otherwise, ok. Enjoying our house. Still need to hang décor around the house – but we’ll get there.
Fun things we did: Went to the Zoo. Birthday party (another post!).
What we’re looking forward too: Ford’s 1 year photo shoot, we’re doing a couple of family shots too, I’m so excited!
