Liam ... 12 and 13 Months

Oh, Bubba! At least your Mama is consistent! I'm making quite the habit out of your bi-monthly updates! In my defense, you are quite attached to my hip so doing much of anything in a timely manner is a challenge these days!

So let's rewind to twelve months!

In the weeks leading up to your first birthday, you cut your top teeth! It's so funny how two little teeth can change your appearance! You have the sweetest smile!

After learning how to crawl, you starting pulling up and holding on to things to stand.

Crawling has added a whole new level to your ability to make messes and get into things. You love to take all of the tissues out of the tissue box and pull toys out of the closet.

This month, we went camping for the first time as a family and you did great sleeping in the tent!

You love to eat, and as of hitting the one year mark, you had yet to refuse anything we offered you. You have a BIG appetite for such a little boy. Weighing in at 17 pounds exactly and measuring around 28 inches tall, you are tiny for a one year old, but happy and healthy. Your hair is still strawberry blond and is starting to curl just like Londyn Grace's did.

At 12 months, you were not sleeping through the night and although starting the night in your crib, you woke like clockwork around 1 AM to nurse and snuggle with Daddy and I in our bed. Sister wasn't sleeping through at your age either so I know this too shall pass! (although I'm not sure I want our sweet snuggle time to pass too quickly!)

Speaking of Sister, your bond with Londyn Grace remains and watching you two just makes Mama's heart so happy. You look for her as soon as you wake up each morning.

At 13 months, not much has changed in the sleeping department.  You still wake at 1 to nurse and still sleep with us for the remainder of the night. Naps are going pretty well. Most days you can hang until the afternoon and sleep for an hour or two, but some days you still need a short one in the morning.

You did gain a pound and grow an inch this month! Now you weigh 18 pounds and measure 29 inches. You are wearing mostly 6-9 month clothes! You are still a good eater, but did decide you don't like ham very much this month.

You aren't walking yet, but you've added climbing to the list! You love to climb the stairs (with Mama right behind you!) and climb on anything that looks "climbable!"

You love to play ball and have been tossing it to whoever will catch it for a few months now.

You give the sweetest kisses and hugs if we ask for them and sometimes even offer them unprompted!

Music and singing make you happy and you love to clap your hands and "conduct" while Sister sings. Bath time is still your favorite! You've made it a little more challenging as you've discovered the fun that is standing up in the tub!

You have started to cry when Mama leaves the room and spend a lot of time on my hip! You are without a doubt Mama's boy, but you get so excited when Daddy comes home for lunch or at the end of the day!

I'm anticipating that you'll be walking by my next update and may have added a few words to your vocabulary, but for now we are soaking up your baby days!

We are so blessed to have you, sweet boy!
