One Year Old
My Appearance: I had an appointment yesterday and I weigh 22lbs and 2oz and I am 30.5 inches tall. This means I have gained almost 14 lbs in a year and grew almost a whole foot. I am getting BIG!! My hair is growing and Mommy says it’s almost time for another hair cut, didn’t I just get one? I am fitting into 18-24 month shirts and 12 month pants. For a while I had to go back to 9 month pants so I wouldn’t trip on them while I was learning to walk but I’m tall enough to wear 12 month pants again. I also am still in size 3 diapers but I don’t think I will stay in them for much longer. I still have a round belly and it must be cute because Mommy and Daddy tickle me a lot there. My cheeks are also very round. I love to smile and I show off my teeth all the time, I have 8 in there now! My eyes are still blue and since I am 1 now I am sure they are going to stay that way, which is a good thing because I get plenty of complements on those too.
Milestones: I got my 8th tooth this month! Now I have 4 on top and bottom. I got sick again this month but it hasn’t been too bad I just had a low grade fever and a sore throat. I also have learned to RUN this month. I have so much fun trying to chase after Kiara. With all of my traveling I was having a lot of trouble sleeping so Mommy and Daddy put me through some sleep training. I can put my self to sleep (I was doing this before we left to Colorado so it was an easy adjustment) and I am working on sleeping through the night. (I could also do this before but I got a little messed up a few months ago when Mommy and I went to Colorado in September). I am having a harder time with this part of the sleep training.
Daily Routine: I am finally starting to get back into a routine. I wake up around 6:30 every morning, take 2 naps during the day, and go to bed around 7:30 at night. In between my sleeping I like to run all over the house. I don’t sit still for a minute, I chase Kiara, play hide and seek with Mommy, try to climb up the stairs whenever I see the gate open, and run to see Daddy when he gets home from work. Another fun thing I have figured out this month is to open cabinet doors. There are a few that I can’t seem to open because of a latch but I love to play with all the tupper wear and pots and pans. I also love to play in the fridge anytime it is open. There is also a cabinet that I can climb all the way into. I have learned to close doors and do this any chance I get.
Special Events: I had my first Christmas this month. It was so fun to open all my presents and play with all my new toys (I was a little spoiled). I celebrated my first New Year in Colorado but I didn’t stay up late enough to watch the ball drop. I have started to eat all kinds of new foods this month and I really like to be in my high chair. I am kind of a picky eater. The first time I try something I really like it but then when Mommy gives it to me again I don’t like it. Right now some of my favorites are avocados, black olives, oranges, and chicken. I do not like to be fed, if I am eating something that needs to be on a spoon or fork I won’t eat it unless I do it myself. I like to stuff my mouth full of food and chew it for awhile then spit it all out on the floor. This makes Mommy and Daddy a little mad. Once I am done I like to get all the food off my tray and do this by throwing it all on the floor. Meal time is a little messy. I also started drinking cow’s milk this month and I love it.
