Drew is one. I can’t comprehend how fast this year went. It really flew by. He started the year at 4lbs 4oz and ended the year at 19lbs. He’s rocking the 20th/25th percentile for both height and weight. Starting out at 3 and ending up somewhere in the 20th is something to be grateful for!
At 1, Drew is standing on his own, but not taking steps forward yet. He wants to, but he’s not quite there yet. I’m afraid of he day he starts walking.He’s going to have way too much fun with it. He’s a pro crawler and is super fast.
He loves to take a bath. When we are running the water he will stand at the edge and squeal. He gets mad when we take him out.
He loves the jumperoo. He can seriously jump in that thing for awhile and get some real air when he gets excited.
He will play by himself with toys and balls and buckets for 20-30 minutes at a time. It’s pretty impressive. He’s a content little kid most of the time (but when he gets mad…he gets MAD).
He says “uh-oh”. That’s his main word. He says it right before he drops something, when we drop something, right after he drops something. Uh-oh is his word. He will say mama and dada but he doesn’t seem to know (or admit to know) that it’s us…he’s just making the sounds. He waved hi and bye for awhile and then stopped. He also blew kisses for awhile and then stopped. I attribute his lack of language to his stubbornness at this point. He is always right on the bubble for having the developmental program evaluate him, and he always seems to do everything right at once right when I’m about to schedule the appointment.
At his 9 month well visit, I was worried about his physical/motor development. At his 12 month, I’m focused more on his cognitive/verbal/social development…but regardless, it’s not too much to be worried about yet. He really seems to be about 4-6 weeks behind the textbook milestones which puts him right at when he should have been born.
He went the entire year without getting sick — except for a stomach bug where he threw up once and was fine after that.
