Twelve Month Post

Harrison is one year old!

From Week 51: Birthday Party with Family

From Week 51

Favorite Things: Singing/talking, dancing to music, balls, books, blocks, cars, pears, eggs, Backyardigans (especially when they sing), baths are still his favorite time of the day, petting Lilly, electronics (cell phones, blackberries, laptops, dvd players, cable boxes, etc.), the DVD player in Mom’s new car, birthday presents

From Week 49

Least Favorite Things: Being sick, cutting teath, getting in his carseat, being held still, wearing hats, not getting exactly what I want (spoiled a little?)

From Week 51: Birthday Party with Family

Tricks: Walking (!!!), lots of new words (baby, “baba” (bottle), go, no,) plus all the old ones (mama, dada, ball, doggie, kitty, hi, bye), he tries to copy most things he hears and makes lots of funny sounds, he gives kisses and hugs, waves hello and goodbye, feeds himself with a spoon

From Week 51

Foods Facts: Harrison is using a sippy cup more and more and is down to only two bottles everyday, he feeds himself at most meals (he is getting better using a spoon everyday) and his favorite foods are eggs, pears, turkey, cheese, applesauce, bananas, pudding and yogurt. He had his first taste of ice cream this month and loved it! He also had birthday cake (white cake with white icing) this month. We expected him to dig in with both hands but he was surprisingly neat. He just picked a little off at a time put it in his mouth.

From Week 49

Sleeping schedule: His sleeping is about the same. Other than the week of teething and sickness, Harrison has been a pretty good sleeper. I think he sleeps through the night (10 – 12 hours) about 4 nights a week. The other night are usually just brief wake ups and we can usually pat his back and get him back to sleep. He also seems to really enjoy napping these days and has been a really good about taking naps this month.

From Week 51

Big Events:
Harrison took his first steps this month. He walked right across the living room and was such a good walker that we think he was practicing when we weren’t looking.

Harrison started Kindermusik this month. He and I go for one hour every Monday. He loves all the singing and dancing. He especially likes the musical eggs and the teacher’s Cabbage Patch doll. He and his new friend Gracely also like getting in trouble and exploring the classroom when they are suppose to be participating in class.

Harrison also started Mother’s Day Out this month (halleluiah!!!). He goes every Wednesday for 5 ½ hours. After the first day, his teachers said he was a really happy little boy. They said he loved music time and he really loved to talk (sounds like they already know him pretty well).

Harrison cut another tooth this month. He cut his bottom left lateral incisor this month – he now has seven teeth. We know the right tooth with be cutting through in the next few days.

Harrison went to Pensacola and Fairhope for his first birthday*. We celebrated with both sets of Grandparents and his Uncle Matt and Aunt CJ (who is expecting a little boy in the next few weeks!)

*Birthday post coming soon.
