1 Year Old! Reid Version

12/6/2013 - 

Oh Reid,

1 already. And what a handsome little man you are turning into! Thanks for coming to our family. We can’t imagine what our world would look like with our Reidy Boy.

Last month:

You sprouted another tooth. Grand total = 7!

You slept through the night more times than you didn’t. Halle-freaking-lujah. 

You went down to one bottle before bed. My hope is that we can eliminate this feeding and be done with bottles! Yahoo!

You took off. You started walking last month, but only taking a few steps here and a few steps there. This month, while we were in Michigan before Thanksgiving, you decided you were ready to walk. And you haven’t quit since. 

You generally are a pretty happy kid, aside from the witching hour. 4:30-5:30 can be rough with you still, but a few snacks go a long way. =) Speaking of eating, you are a pretty good one. Your favorite foods are bananas and most fruits, pizza, noodles, and tomatoes. You will grunt until you are fed. And if anyone is eating anything in front of you, you will beg until they share. 

You have a pretty strong preference for Mama and Dada, but there are some people you will go to without a fuss. You are not nearly as attached as your sister was at this age. Thank goodness. 

You can sign “more” and you respond to milk and eat. You are still not much of a talker. You say dada and mama but nothing else. I swear I heard you say “hi” the other day but I haven’t heard you say it again. You will also tap your head when we ask you where your head is and you clap your hands on cue too. This is such a fun age as you learn to respond to us. You also click your tongue and love to have tongue clicking wars with us. 

You have been an absolute joy in our lives, little boy. We feel so lucky to know you. Your sister adores you, sometimes a little too much. You are a good sport to put up with it so well. 

Love you!
Mama and Dada
