|At 7am, I get the bright idea to make him a special birthday shirt. A scrap of orange flannel made a super cute "1"!!|
He had his 12 month well-baby check up in the morning. He's 23.8lbs and 30.5in. One thing I never thought I'd hear? "He doesn't weigh enough." Seriously? I think he's growing just fine. He also had to get a blood test to check his iron levels--the doc told me that most breastfed babies this age are anemic, but he was a champ with the finger prick and his iron levels are great! His doctor was also shocked that I wasn't itching to stop nursing. When I told her our goal is til 2, she was very surprised. Halfway there--not that he'd really let me stop any time soon...he loves it too much, and it's so good for him!! He has 5 teeth, the sixth is working its way in. Not quite walking, he can, but lacks the confidence to actually do it. Talks up a storm and loves to play, especially with cars!
|Waiting on the doctor. Everyone in the clinic is so shocked at his diapers!|

|It's hard work being the birthday boy!! He actually napped a ton, totally out of the norm for him!|
