one year old

i took reese to the doctor today for his one year appointment. his statistics are pretty impressive:
weight: 28 lbs 13 oz which is over the 100th%
height: 34 inches which is over the 100th%
head circumference: 46.2 centimeters which is the 45th%
the nurse re measured him because she wanted to be sure that he had grown so much in the last few months. he is a tank.

our little one, or giant i should say, amazes me everyday. he is so smart and so sweet and so loving. how did i go so long without him and how did this year go by so fast?

here are a few of the amazing things he does everyday:

when you tell him to go "nigh-nights" he lays his head down and snuggles his giraffe no matter what time or where he is.

he waves bye-bye.

he loves to talk on the phone and will put it up to his ear when you say "hello".

he says "mom"
he says "dad"

he shakes his head no and pushes things away.

he dances EVERY time he hears music, this boy is gonna have some moves! he doesn't just bounce up and down, he writes his name with his booty!

he loves parsley cat and tries to catch him all the time. he pets him and touches his nose often.

he unloads the dish towel drawer and then puts it all back.

he loves little balls that he can carry in his hands while he crawls.

sometimes he puts giraffe in his mouth while he crawls.

he gives big hugs and loves to snuggle.

I love the new blog layout and your picture in the header, so cute! I can't believe how big Reese is! I just took Evan in and he is 29 inches, and 24 lbs 9 oz, which makes him 5th for height and 25-50th for weight!

What a cute little guy, or I guess I should say big guy :)! He sounds like such a fun baby. Looks like he had a fun birthday party!

Also I have a couple of the books on your list that you can borrow. There was no place to comment on the book list. some of those sound like good ones, I might have to start reading again.

Savannah he is just so cute!!! I just read this post and the birthday party one. I love it that he's such a tank, that picture on the doctor's table is classic! I wish we lived closer so he and Spencer could play together!
