Tylers 13 Month Stats

I never really thought about this blog being like a baby book for Tyler but now it appears it is. I get to document his development and funny things he does, and it will be so nice to know looking back. So I will try to post once a month his progress into each month. He is changing so fast and I think it will be nice for him to look back on.

Tyler’s 13 Month Stats

Bedtime: After being sick you became a little scared of being alone or maybe just a little spoiled, regardless you have settled back into your usual routine of sleeping in your crib. You wake up bright and early any where from 5:10 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. I have not figured out what makes you sleep longer, but sometimes you do seem to be a little scared when you wake up.

Naps: You like to take short naps in the morning sometimes and a longer nap in the afternoon. This all depends when you wake up in the morning though.

Meals: You enjoy most everything that we feed you and you are now showing interest in feeding yourself with a spoon or baby fork. You have also started shaking your head no to let us know you finished. You love sharing raisin bread with Memaw and eating grapes, bananas, and drinking your milk through a straw. When feeding yourself you always feed yourself the most colorful first: whether that be carrots, green beans, or the marsh mellows out of your cereal.

Developmental Milestones and "Firsts": You are still working on potty training and doing pretty good about going. You like to read books while going potty. You had your first haircut just 2 weeks before you turned one year old. When we ask you questions you shake your head yes or no. You are practically running everywhere when you get excited and you now want to climb when given the chance. You mimic everything you see.

Words and Talking: You are trying to say new words like banana, Papa, hot, hi, bye, around, squirrel, and Tucker. When you yell, instead of cupping your hand next to your mouth you cover your mouth and yell. It's pretty cute.
Growth: You have 12 teeth and you will sometimes bite when you get excited. You weigh 23 pounds 9 ounces and you are 31.5 inches tall. You are perfectly healthy, loving, and sweet little boy.

Favorite Toys and Things to do: You love your pots, pans and little spoons; you will stir the pots then give us a taste, and then turn the pot up and act like you are eating by making slurping noises. You also love tractors especially your blue Ford tractor at Mema's, cars, books, cell phones, nesting blocks, and Tucker's toys. Given the choice you might play with Tucker's toys before your own. You love to turn on the bathtub in our bathroom, and unplug your night light.

Clothing/Diaper sizes: You are still wearing size 4 diapers. You are wearing some of your 12 month clothes but we are transitioning you into 18 month because you are getting tall. You are wearing size 5 shoes and you love to stomp and make noise in the house or outside on the ground. You will even hold your foot up so I can put your shoes on.

Special Experiences This Month: You got to swing a golf club and hit a golf ball. You experienced walking outside on your own since it finally warmed up enough and the snow melted. You got your first cold with a runny nose on February 8th.
