The Almost One Year Update

Friday, February 18, 2011

It's been a while since I've broken down the deets on Jack.  He's about to turn one, so it's high time for an update.  Here goes:

Weight:  19 pounds, 6 ounces.  He's on the slim side.

Length:  I don't know, but he's long.  75% for height.

Sleeping:  Through the night, because he's a rock star.

Food:  He likes it.  Though, given his weight, we're trying to get as much food in as we can.  His current favorite things are:  macaroni and cheese, quesadillas, cheese (see a trend? and, can we say that he's my son?), oranges, and cold cold water from his sippy cup.


Talking:  He loves to babble out the "mamas" and "dadas," which makes us all melty happy.  But he also says things that sound reeeally close to "lucy" and "doggy."  So, we're excited about that.

Walking:  Not yet, but any day now.  He pulls himself up on literally everything, and will take a few steps if you hold his hands and encourage him.  He then gets bored and decides that crawling is faster.  Which it is, at least for now.

Dogs:  Lucy is still his biggest fan.  Pablo is coming around, primarily because Jack likes to drop pieces of food into Pablo's waiting "food retrieval area" (aka, the floor) when he's had enough.  Pablo seems to think that he's made enough sacrifices for this baby, and is glad that he's getting his now.  As a result, I think it's fair to say that Pablo has also become a big fan of mac and cheese lately.

Favorite Things:  The stairs.  We are training him to go down the stairs, butt first, because he is so enthralled with them and finds climbing them so easy.  Outside:  a perennial favorite.  For Jack, any bad mood can be ended instantly by walking outside.  Bathtime:  rubber ducky, you're the one.  Spoons:  Not to feed himself with, per se, just to hold.



Parents:  Loving life.  Because, with a kid this cute around, how could you not?

Hope this finds you well and happy, too.
