Happy first birthday Fox! This is the birthday boy when he woke up this morning:
Time to paaaaartaaaay!
I CAN'T BELIEVE MY BABY IS ONE YEAR OLD! WHERE DID THE TIME GO? (I know I know, EVERY mom says that, but what can I say except it's true true true? I guess time flies when you're having fun!)
Length: 30.5" (50-75%)
Weight: 21 pounds (25-50%)
Head circumference: 19" (90-95%)
Here's a compilation of baby Fox to big boy Fox - 1 month to 1 year.
My how he's grown!
Eye color: Gray gray gray! They stayed gray! Hooray!
Hair color: Light brown and wavy. I love the little curls he's got goin' on the back of his head.
Teeth: Four molars popped through over a span of a week. That was a fun week, lemme tell ya... So now he has 6 on top and 7 on bottom. How many more to go?? He's used his crib as a teething ring.
Nap/sleep schedule: Wake up at 7am, nap 9-10am, nap 2-3pm, sleep 7pm-7am. Give or take here and there. He's got some great bedhead.
Tricks on command: "Peek-a-boo", claps, high fives, and gives me big slobbery kisses.
He's a great sharer and always offers me and Chris and Joey a bite of whatever he's eating.
He's such a little boy. I don't know how to describe it. Just quick, jerky movements and moments of spazziness I guess! Boys will be boys :)
He loves "driving" his car and looking at himself in the mirror.
Does "uh oh" count as his first word? Cuz he says it whenever he drops something!
Fox points at things and can even point to pictures of himself on the wall.
He's becoming fascinated with the laundry machine.
Fox LOOOOVES to be outside. All day. Every day. Rain or shine.
He doesn't walk on his own yet, has only taken one step once, but we're at the stage where he's walking comfortably with just one of my hands for assistance. Soon enough! I'm not worrying about walking like I was with crawling.
One of his favorite things to do is chase Rachel the cat, pin her down, and press his head against her soft fur and rotund belly.
Poor Rachel. She doesn't reciprocate the love but she's tolerating it much better than she used to.
We discovered he loves M&Ms and popcorn.
Speaking of food, he is so over being hand fed. He's pretty much a self eater now which is making me think harder about what we eat!
