One Year Stats (plus a little more birthday wrap up)

I swear this is the last post about Henry turning one. I am totally out of material after this one and we can hence forth return to our normal lives...until next May 13th. Then it will be all about "OH GOOD LORD MY BABY IS TWO!" and it will once again take an entire week to cover. Go ahead and mark it down in your calenders.

Anyway, Henry had his one year check up today! All is well with our sweet boy. We could say yes to all the developmental questions which always makes me feel good. We talked about him still waking up in the night, and she really said that for his size it is normal. He has a really high metabolism and he is honest to god hungry. So...that's good to know. And I am not sure about weaning him now because making bottles is WAY more of a THING than scooping him out of his bed and nursing him in ours. We will see...the entire nursing, night waking thing might get its own post soon. Actually yes...yes it will. So on to the stats!

Height: 30 1/2 inches : 75th percentile (moving on up the chart!)
Weight: 18lb 1.5oz : <5th percentile (still skinny)
Head: 18 3/4 inches : 90th percentile (extra room for brains)

So, basically we still have a tall, skinny, big headed baby. And we feel that is absolutely perfect!

Now, in order to actually make this the LAST birthday post, I realized I was going to have to toss a couple pictures up here at the end. So...enjoy Henry eating his first cupcake!
Henry says, Mama, see this bib? It's says "1" that means I am totally in charge. And my first order of business is to tell you to keep that thing away from me.
Seriously, what the heck do you want me to do with this thing?
Okay, okay...I will touch it... but I make no promises on actually tasting it. I only eat things off the floor.
Hold up...this is....this is awesome
Have you all tried this?!?! My GAWD it is good!
I totally love you guys! Hugs and kisses and all that. So... can I get another??

And then he opened his presents from us and got his very own swing for the back yard! He begged to try it out, so we let him.

And so concludes the 1st birthday extravaganza!

The End.
