The One with Fox at 13 Months


Monday, November 14, 2011

I was going to stop doing these but Chris asked why? And I couldn't think of a reason so on we go! Here is Fox at 13 months:

Length: 31" (50-75%)
Weight: 22.5 pounds (25-50%)
Head circumference: 19" (75-90%)
Same ol' same ol'.

I tried taking pictures in his chair like usual.

I took two or three before he said peace out and slid off the chair.

That in and of itself is a milestone. He's learning about heights and the consequences of what happens when he falls and learning to get down from the couch and chairs on his own.

The biggest milestone this month? FOX CAN WALK! Inside, he usually likes me to walk around with my hand in his, but once we go outside he forgets his crutch and off he goes! He's a funny guy though, the first thing he does is find a pair of leaves so he can hold one in each hand while he walks.

If he falls down on his bum while walking it's game over and he'll just start crawling wher'er he wants. But he's learning to bend over and pick things up and use his leg muscles to stand back up.

We haven't given him a haircut yet. I dreading it! I love his curls! Even if they are a bit out of control...

He's now in a big boy booster seat! I love being able to see his cute face from the rearview mirror and I think he likes facing forward.

He will try to eat any red or green thing he finds outside. Why only red and green? He loves berries of any kind. Especially blackberries.

This boy LOVES splashing in puddles. He reserves a special "stomp stomp stomp" action for puddles. I need to take a video of it cuz it's quite comical.

He still sucks on pacifiers and we haven't switched over to sippy cups... We're working on it.

Fox is a mama's boy. Wowzers he is clingy to me! He must be holding onto me or within my eyesight at all times and in all things and in all places or it's over man. Let the waterworks and shrieks and shrills begin. Naps are my saving grace. He still takes one in the morning and one in the afternoon and sleeps from 7pm-6am.

He's a picky eater. We've tried lots of different things but he still only prefers certain things. He likes goldfish, peas, string cheese, hot dogs, berries, green beans, chicken, and french fries. He refuses to try eggs or bread or pizza or anything we eat. So we're still feeding him baby food so at least he's getting some nutritious foods.

It's so fun to watch him grow up and explore the world and become interested in things and more independent. Love you Fox Thomas!
