Still not in the mood for a photo shoot. (Sprinkle’s paw is on the left, she’s attempting to go outside)
So Max is 12 months old! Yay! Here is what he’s up to:
Words: says duck, will bark if he hears a dog or we bark, makes car and truck noises when he plays with this cars and trucks
Likes: turning lights switches on and off, poking all the buttons in our cars, giving hugs and kisses, dancing to any kind of music with a beat (he bounces up and down), turning the pages of books, looking at pictures of other babies and animals, taking baths, going “swimming” at the Lindbergh pool (I grew up going to that pool) with Kelly and me, playing in Max safe drawers in the bathroom and kitchen, playing in dirt, climbing into the dryer using his stool and playing in it, feeding himself finger food and trying to use a spoon, typing on keyboards, and going for walks in the frontpack or stroller. When he sees Kelly, me, any of his grandparents or aunts and uncles he’ll make his super excited noise (its this strange breathing in sound) and reach for them with a big grin. Its super cute.
Favorite Foods: Ice cream! I shared my ice cream cone with him once and he demanded that I keep sharing and he bawled when it was all gone, bananas, grapes, raisins, prunes, meatballs, Dave’s Killer bread, yogurt, cottage cheese, basically any cheese, milk and orange juice
Games: He likes to play peek-a-boo. He’ll hold a blanket up to his face and we’ll ask, “Where’s Max?” then he’ll lower the blanket and we’ll say, “There he is!” He really likes that.
Activities: Will stand without holding onto anything, walks behind his cart or holding onto our hands. Will walk holding on to one hand but isn’t as sure about that. Sometimes will bear crawl (walking on hands and feet not knees). He uses his stool to get up in his highchair all by himself when I tell him its time to eat.
Signing: He has started to sign “all done” and “milk” and know what they mean. He will also shake his head when he doesn’t want to eat something.
Behavior: He’ll pause and sometimes actually stop what he’s doing if we say, “no.” We use it only when we really mean it i.e. for eating dirt, rocks, ash from the bbq etc.
Max doesn’t have a “lovey” or favorite toy, stuffed animal or blanket. However when we lay him down for a nap or at night he likes a blanket on him and will reach for it and snuggle it.
Sleep: He’s sleeping well. He goes to bed around 7pm and wakes up around 7am. He takes a morning nap that’s anywhere from an hour to three. Its usually one hour though. He occasionally will take an afternoon nap around 4pm.
Stats: 31 inches long (75% for height) and 21 pounds 8 ounces (50% for weight)
