12 Months Old

Wow Blakely! We can't believe that you are one. It seems like you have been with us forever. This past year has been wonderful and we look forward to the next year as you begin to learn more and more.
Stats:Weight: 20 lbs 6 ozHeight: 30 1/2 inches
Clothes: 12 months, size 3 diaper
Teething: still have six teeth
Movement: This past month you started crawling and started getting into everything. We thought you would skip crawling, but you just took you time until you wanted to do it. You pull up on everything and cruise all around. I honestly think it will be a couple of months before you begin walking. You are fearful of just hanging on with one hand when we are walking with you.
Eating: You eat almost everything. I still give you 3rd foods cereal, but everything else is table food or toddler food. You love scrambled eggs, toast, any fruit, peas, carrots and green beans. I really could list almost any food. We are so glad you are a good eater.
Talking: You are saying a lot of new words. You try to repeat what we are saying. If I ask you to come here you can crawl to me. You will bring me some of you toys if I ask you. There are times I think you have your own little conversation with yourself. You love to say Bye Bye! Anytime we walk toward the garage you start saying it.
Toys/Books/Activity: You got a lot of new toys for your b-day. We can't wait to start playing with them. You still love balls and are really good at throwing them. Your dad thinks that one day you will be the star soccer player. You love putting things in boxes and then taking them out. You love books and are starting to want me to read the same book over and over. You like to watch TV. You love the DoodleBops and Elmo.
Blakely we look forward to the next year with all the exciting changes that you will have. We love you so so much and are so proud of you.
Oh by the way you have turned into a daddy's girl. When your daddy comes home you want nothing to do with me and you want everything to do with your daddy. It makes your daddy so proud.
