1 Year Stats and Milestones

Scott took Michael to his 1st year appointment last week and we got lots of good news on our big boy!

Height: 33 inches
Weight: 24 lbs

This puts him in the 98th percentile for height and 65th percentile for weight. I was surprised by his weight because he is a heavy boy!! He is tall and skinny...surprise, surprise. This boy is going to grow up to be very tall someday!

He's also hitting some big milestones such as:
- walking well and FAST!
-is starting to say more sounds, but not really on a consistent level (some days will be a kee-kee-kee sound, other days gah, gah, gah)
-waves hi and bye
-blows kisses and gives kisses
-likes to take things out of and put things in a container (especially the silverware in the dishwasher-he likes to transfer from one section to the next)
-plays with a ball-throwing and chasing
-picks up things off the ground from a standing position
-eats well with his fingers and likes to eat lots of different foods
-has started to try to eat with a spoon but usually he ends up trying to "drink" whatever is in the bowl I give him (grandma's applesauce was a big hit yesterday!)
-likes to push buttons on toys
-likes to feel the parts of a book (touchy feely books)
-helps with getting dressed by laying still and holding out arms for shirts
-and unfortunately for us- throws a little tantrum when he doesn't get to do what he doesn't want to do. Where do kids learn that!?

My little man is getting bigger and smarter by the day! It is so fun!
