Happy Birthday C! 12 Months

 I can not believe that I am writing Christian's one year update! What a year this has been and when I reflect back on all that C has been through, accomplished, and learned I am blown away. He truly brings us so much joy and I love him more that I could have ever imagined.

12 Month Stats:
Weight: 19 lbs (4%)
Length: 30 in (48%)
Head Circumference: 18.6 in (73%)

Clothes: Christian is in 9-12 month clothes and size 3 diapers

This kid has become so active and inquisitive. He loves to put toys in baskets and take them out. He studies each one and definitely has an opinion now as to what books he wants to read and what toys he wants to play with and makes that known. Blocks are still a favorite but I also love that he will just sit on his own and flip through books.
Christian has 4 teeth, two on top and two on the bottom. The top teeth make him look so much older!  He is crawling and cruising. He loves to point things out and is constantly jabbering. He has started to mimic what we say which is really fun. His first official word was "dada" followed closely with "mama" and "yeah". His helmet therapy is going great and this one seems to fit him well and he is already making progress. 

Eating: breast milk and a lot of finger foods! :) He is really into feeding himself now so he doesn't like the purees as much. This is harder for me though in preparing everything for each meal!

Wake up- 6:30ish
Naps- 9 and 1:30
Bed- 7:00/7:30

Firsts and Fun!

Oh Christmas Tree

Yesterday we went on a hunt for the perfect Christmas tree. Kerry took the afternoon off of work and we headed out to the local nursery where we have gotten our tree since we have been married. ( we did decided that once C is older we will need to pick a more festive spot!)

We found it! Christian was so funny and nervous about touching the tree...but now that it is home he loves to look at it and points it out each time he sees it. :) We are so glad to get to share these Christmas traditions with this little guy this year!
