Alexander is 1 Year Old!

Baby boy is one year old today! Amazing. It seems like he was just born.

At 1 year Alexander:
  • Is 23.5 pounds and 31.75 inches
  • Is wearing 18-24 month clothes
  • Is still talking, signing, and babbling away  with the same words he has been
  • Is walking! ( He was taking a couple of steps here and there, but the day before his birthday he started taking about 8 or so steps in a row quite a few times)
  • Loves to play ball
  • Initiates playing peek a boo and thinks it is hysterical
  • Makes animal noises
  • Can read "The End" (He claps like we do when we get to the end of a set of flashcards)
We're so blessed to have him as part of our family.

Alexander at 11 Months

Well this is getting up very late as Alexander will be 1 year old in just over a week (we've been busy moving again, but now we're basically settled), but better late than never. I really can't believe how fast this year flew by, each kid seems to make time go faster.

At 11 months Alexander:
  • Is 23 pounds and 31.25 inches
  • Is wearing 12-18 month clothes
  • Has 8 teeth (yeah he got 4 in a week, not fun)
  • Got his first haircut last month
  • Got to try McDonalds double cheeseburger for the first time last month and loved it
  • Says mama, dada, nigh-nigh (night-night)
  • Waves hi and bye, signs diaper and water sometimes
  • Loves to clap for himself
  • Likes to do things he thinks is funny and then laugh hysterically at his own jokes
  • Loves to play with his brothers
  • Loves to play ball, he'll play catch and "fetch" for a long time
  • Like to look at his books and flashcards and points at words

  • Is a chatterbox who loves to babble constantly
  • Says mama, dada, nigh-nigh (night-night)

  • Is doing a little better about not constantly getting into everything 
  • is getting better at entertaining himself/playing by himself for a little bit

Alexander at 9 months

As babies tend to do, Alexander has grown, learned, and changed a lot in the past month. He is generally a happy kiddo and we're so thankful for him.

At 9 months Alexander:
  • Is 21.75 pounds and 30.5 inches
  • Wears 12-18 month clothes
  • Can sit (but doesn't like to very often)
  • Can do a real crawl, very fast
  • Can say Mama, Dada, and nigh-nigh (night-night), and yum-yum
  • Can clap (loves to clap for himself when he does a good job) and point
  • Will occasionally hit his diaper for a diaper change or put his hands together for more, but generally likes to squeal instead of sign when he needs something
  • Loves to eat any solid food close to him as well as tons of milk still
  • Has had his eyes change color slightly over the past month and we're wondering what color they will turn out to be
