At 12 months, Cayden is a serious crawler. He is everywhere and into everything. He really really wants to pull up but the kid is a 22 lb chunk. Poor thing can't pull himself up. (Edited to add: Just found out from the sitter that he pulled up yesterday and he did it with such ease that she thought he'd been doing it at home for the past week. [She's been on vacation.] I can't wait to see him do it!) He will stand when we help him stand. He loves music and his favorite toys are two books that play songs. He will push the button and then dance and sway and clap. He loves clapping. He can waive bye bye and he likes to show off all of his tricks of making noises with his hands on his mouth. He is so proud of it. He loves interacting with his sister. He also is super smart (don't all parents say that??) He immediately knew how to use all of his new toys and knew to put the little balls where they are supposed to go. And he took the little pirate people and put them in the hammock on his little pirate ship! It's so fun to see him playing like a big boy!
He is a size 4 diaper and is quickly growing out of 6-12 month clothes. He has 3 teeth on the bottom and up until this past week only had one tooth on top on the right (not a center tooth). This past week his left side tooth (not a center tooth) finally came through. Can you please picture his mouth...three bottom teeth, no center top teeth and two top side teeth? It is so funny! Today he finally cut one of his center top teeth. I'll be thrilled to have him finish teething for a little bit. He is such a happy laid back baby so when he's fussy from his teeth it's just not like him. I feel so sorry for him!
Now for a
scroll stroll down memory lane...
First day home from the hospital. Look at those skinny little wrinkly legs! He was swimming in his Newborn size clothes and we ended up buying him some Preemie clothes.
This picture was near impossible since as soon as we took our hands off of him he would roll and crawl away.
Here are his monthly sitting pictures!
I love looking through these pictures to see how much personality my baby has gotten! I absolutely love him to the moon and back!
