Little man is twelve months old. One year. Cliché alert: it has gone by so fast. It’s bittersweet not having a cuddly infant, but at the same time, it is so fun seeing this little personality shine through. Each stage just gets more and more fun and a little less sleep deprived, too! Noah, you are a precious child of God. We are so proud to be your parents. I pray that you will know and understand your Father’s unconditional love for you. My prayer for you, my hope for your future, is that you become a man of God: compassionate, gentle, smart and strong like your dad… a leader. I pray that you will know Jesus. I pray for your purpose. I know you’re here for something big and important, and we thank God for letting us be here to witness your life. Happy first birthday to our precious, sweet little man.
I started crawling on my hands and knees this month… not just an army crawl.
I am also
walking running with my toy walker like a champ. I love when mommy and daddy chase me while I’m running all over the house. I love to bang into the walls with my walker!
I will actually play in my room by myself for 10 or so minutes, then I crawl into the living room or kitchen to see what I’m missing out on.
I’m still a pretty cautious little guy. There isn’t any reason to do anything drastic. I love when you help me walk. I’ll try to pull up on certain things, but not without a little help.
I weigh almost 21 pounds and measure 28 1/2 inches. I’m in the lower percentiles for height, mid percentile for weight and my head still is in the 95th percentile. I’ve got brains!
My top right tooth is still trying to make it’s way down. When it gets here, I will have five teeth.
I eat three good meals of solid foods each day with a little mid-afternoon snack. I have a milk feed first thing in the morning, before I go to bed and still once in the middle of the night. A couple of weeks ago, for almost a whole week, I slept through the entire night (7 p.m. to 7 or 8 a.m. without waking up!). Mommy was very happy.
I recognize a lot of different words that the big people say: airplane, duck, dog, lights, elephant, horse, up, hot, apple… The one thing I repeat over and over, again all day long is “APP”, short for apple, not the iPhone app.
I love to look through books, play on my rocking horse, spin and turn things, open doors and look up for airplanes and lights. I’ve started reaching up to grab or point at things.
This will be my last monthly update. I’ll let you know how things are going throughout my second year, but not quite so often. Mommy will post other pics, too.
