It’s a good thing we only have one more of these because we’re definitely going downhill with these monthly pictures
Firsts: crawling, pulling up, beach trip, taste of ice cream and whole milk, Kiddie Carnival, ride on a carousel, fourth of July fireworks, drive-in movie
Favorite Toy/Activity: dancing, if there isn’t a song on you click your tongue to make your own beat
Mommy’s Favorite: Your dance moves
Daddy’s Favorite: When you say hey to him and get all excited to see him. He is definitely your favorite person right now!
Lily’s Favorite: When you try to talk
Scott’s Favorite: When you play in his bedroom with him
Milestones: you’ve transitioned from formula to whole milk, you are in 12 month clothes, you are crawling and pulling up, you are pointing or reaching out to people or things you want
Weight/Length: I’m guessing you are somewhere between 20-23 pounds
Like Mommy: Your hair is getting lighter and showing signs of being curly
Like Daddy: You are content and easily pleased
Like Lily: Most mornings you wake up in a good mood and occasionally you will stay in bed and talk before we come to get you
Like Scott: You love milk!
Best Memory: Your first beach trip with Granny Rosie, which was also her last beach trip with all of us
Biggest Challenge: You finally got some teeth. 4 came in at the same time which meant you were fussy, cranky, snotty, and in pain for at least two weeks.
How We Spend the Day: You are up around 7 in the morning, usually after Mommy, Lily, and Scott are gone for school. You have some milk and breakfast then Daddy takes you to school. You play, eat, sleep, learn at school until Mommy picks you up in the afternoon. Once you are home, you eat a snack and play with Lily and Scott until dinner time. You eat whatever Mommy cooks for dinner and are in bed by 7:30 every night.
Nicknames: Wuby Jeams
Funniest Moment: No moment in particular, but your personality is really starting to shine and it’s so fun to watch!
Words: “Daaaadee” is daddy and baby. “Hey” while pointing means you want keys or a phone. You also have picked up on the fact that when you need someone you yell their name over and over again until you get that person’s attention, so when someone else is yelling a name you start yelling things too. I mean, why not?
Coming Up: Your first birthday party!
