1 Year Dr. Appt

Weight 24 lbs 6 oz.; 97 percentile
Length: 32 in.; 98 percentile
Head Size: 47cm; 76 percentile
He did not gets shots because he has a cold. So I'll be taking him in next week for shots.
Nolan is working puzzles, slowing eating more table food, jabbering (says got it, get it, and goggy for doggy). He enjoys feeding himself and will try new foods if we are eating them. He sticks his tongue out to taste it first before deciding if it is worthy of eating. His favorite person is daddy and has to be picked up by David as soon as he gets home. He's now drinking milk instead of formula.
Now onto what he's not doing. He's not pulling up to a standing position or cruising around furniture. He will not drink from a sippy cup. He'll bite it but won't suck, therefore he's still on the bottle. Nolan's also not saying Mama and Dada. Looking at his list of things he's not doing the doctor is recommending that First Steps evaluate him in all areas, speech, OT, PT, and development therapy. Although the doctor also said that he is a very chill baby. So chill that my friend says he's like Bob Marley and just wants to bang on his drum all day. He's chill until his brother comes around. I think Isaac was his motivator for crawling. Nolan crawls towards Isaac, then Isaac starts yelling "No baby!" Nolan can be across the room and Isaac is convinced that Nolan is coming for his toys. We're working on being nice to Nolan and sharing toys with him. I'm pretty sure Nolan loves making Isaac scream.

Love being outdoors

Isaac is organized in his own way. He has his own area in the flower bed that he won't let us touch. We've spent a lot of time outdoors this week and I'm loving it. It is a little difficult to work in the garden when Isaac wants to help and Nolan want to eat the grass. I'm loving being outside in our heavenly backyard. I could spend all day out there.

He's also in what I hope is a phase of being afraid of everything from the rain to the bears on his pajamas. He also sleeps with the light on, even though, he has 3 night lights in his room.

Welcome to the Family Little Chicks!

Isaac, Nolan, and I went to pick up some top hat chicks today, also known as polish chicks. As soon as I had them set up in their new place Isaac said he likes them. He's also been asking frequently to pet them. I have to keep reminding him that they will grow into big chickens, and his response is, "No, not bigger chickens." But then tonight at bedtime he told me he wants more bigger chickens. Then again he was telling me Daisy was a chicken and not a dog. He's getting pretty good at telling jokes lately. Isaac was so excited about the chickens that he showed them his toys and also played some instruments for them.

Drum Cake

Here's the cake that I've been enjoying since Nolan didn't want it.

1 year old!

A cheesy treat

Since it's his birthday I thought I'd give him one of his favorite and messiest snacks, shredded cheese.

First Birthday Party

Nolan had a lot of fun opening presents and his friends had fun showing how to play with the presents. He was not interested in the cake at all, just wanted to be held by daddy. He's definitely a daddy's boy.

Isaac loves his clip on tie and wants to wear it all the time.
