12 (& 11 & 10) Months Update

10 Months
You're one year old!
11 Months
Which means yes, this is a combined 12 and 11 and 10 months update.
12 Months
But at least I managed to take a photo each month, so I'm on top of something?
July 29
At your 12 month visit you were 27.4 inches long (1st%ile). You weighed 15 lbs 6 ozs (0%ile). Your head circumference was 44 cm (3rd%ile).
August 4
You're wearing a mix of 6 and 9 month clothes. Pants are the hardest to fit because 6 month is basically too short, but 9 month is way to long in the waist. No actual shoes yet for a size there, but you are still wearing size 3 diapers.
August 5
Overall it's taken you some time to really be a fan of food. But you're starting to come around. I will say that we can always count on you to each oranges and pieces of chicken. Because of this I wasn't sure how you'd do eating cake at your birthday party, but you dove right in and devoured every piece you could.
August 19
You're still on bottles, although recently you've shown us you're willing to drink milk from a zoli bot straw cap. So there is a hope we can switch for the future. I do think the hardest part of the switch for you has to be the temperature since you like your bottles scalding hot.
September 16
You're not walking yet, instead you're happy to cruise along furniture or use your walker. I think you probably could walk if you wanted to, but you have more important things to do.
September 30
You haven't had your first word yet, but you are a pretty awesome clapper. Also recently you've started waiving and giving high fives.
October 3
You love playing in Kaylee's kitchen, chewing or banging various pieces of food. Although I will say you received a little yellow chair for your birthday and that's starting to become your favorite.
October 5
It's so crazy how fast this year has flown by. It's funny though because you seem so much younger than your sister did at one. Maybe because part of me wants to keep you a baby forever? But I do see glimpses of your personality coming through and I can't wait to see how it develops. Just not quite yet though!
October 14
Here's a comparison with your sister at 10, 11, and 12 months.

9 (& 8) Months Update

8 Months
You're 9 months old!
9 Months
Which means yes, I missed your 8 months post, so consider this a combined 8 and 9 month post!
May 26
At 8 months you weighed 13 lbs and 3 ozs and at 9 months you weighted 14 lbs (both for the 0%ile).
May 27
You are wearing 6 months size clothes, with a few onesies being a little too small length-wise, but a few pants being a little too big. You're still in size 2 diapers, although once we finish the last few we have a box of size 3 to start using.
June 1
You've also gotten your first teeth these months. The center 4 all came in at once. And now you're currently cutting both of the side top two.
June 10
You are on the go, non-stop moving. You're still at an army crawl, but you move so quickly around the house there's no reason to change things up. You're pulling up and if necessary you can cruise along the coffee table or ottoman, especially if there's something you want.
June 23
You aren't quite ready to walk holding hands, I think because you realize it's so much quicker to crawl so any time we try it you just sit back down. In some ways, there's no need to change things up, especially since you're able to crawl your way up the staircase!
June 29
It finally seems like you're starting to realize what an awesome person your sister can be. It took a while knowing how often she takes away whatever you're playing with, but when you're in the high chair (I guess because you're trapped), you two have a blast together. Apparently she thinks it hilarious when you hit your tray, which in turn makes you laugh and hit your tray harder for a vicious cycle.
July 1
Speaking of your high chair, you're slowly getting better with feeding yourself. You aren't a huge fan of sweet of tart flavors, but seems to love things like meat or beans best.
July 8
It is crazy knowing that it felt like just yesterday your sister was 9 months and that in no time at all you'll be running and talking just like she is. It really does go so, so quickly that part of me wants to keep you this little. And yet, I can't wait to see the person you'll become.
