12 months!

Dear Sawyer,

You are now 12 months -- 1 year old!  1 amazing year.  You become less of a baby everyday and more of a big boy!  And everyday you bring us so much joy!

You are walking pretty good.  You can't stand up totally on your own but you pull up on everything and then you take off.  It is so funny to see your tiny self walking around.

You are still a really happy, easy baby.  You "talk" to us all the time.  Mostly saying dada, baba (for bottle) and byebye...and that is about all we can make out.

You are wearing size 4 diapers.  You are wearing some 9-12 month clothes and some 12-18 month clothes. 

You weight around 22 lbs and are about 29 1/2 inches long.

You have 8 teeth - 4 on the bottom and 4 on the top.

You are eating mostly only table foods now.  You will still eat some baby food but sometimes you want nothing to do with it.  You eat pretty much everything we eat.  You love hot dogs, ham, crackers, cheese, carrots, green beans, bread, waffles, and cinnamon rolls.  You eat three meals a day and have a snack in the afternoon.  You drink milk 4 times a day.  And we are giving you a sippy cup with every meal...either with milk or water.  You are doing pretty good with the sippy cup so hopefully we'll be done with the bottle in a couple weeks.  You've also started eating table food at daycare too.  You also are drinking whole milk now.  We started mixing it with breast milk about a week ago and now you are taking whole milk by itself.  You really seem to like it.

You are still a great sleeper.  You still go to bed around 7:30pm and sleep around 12 hours.  You take 2 naps a day when at home - around 1-2 hours.

This month you've become really interested in Cooper.  You love to chase him and try and pet him.  We are teaching you (and him) to be easy and nice.

You also love it when we chase you and we get the best giggles out of you when we tickle you.  It is the sweetest sound.

I love you, my 1 year old baby!

Here are some pictures of you at 12 months:
(and I'm glad we are done with the pictures in this chair because they are hard to get.  I'm trying to take the picture, get you to smile and keep you from climbing over the's exhausting!)
