Here he is....with a black eye.
Brody is 13 months old today! I can still remember the day he was born. He was so cuddly, at 8 pounds, 10 ounces of him! Time flies! I realized yesterday as we were up in Phoenix that I never posted about his 12 month check up so here are Brody's current stats (well from 3 weeks ago I guess):
Weight: 28 1/2 pounds... he no longer could sit on the baby scale....he had to stand on the regular scale!! (97th percentile)
Height: 31 1/2 inches (90-95th percentile)
Teeth: 6 and hopefully some molars soon
Words: He babbles Dada and Mama. And yesterday on our way home from Phoenix I was giving him french fries, I mean carrots:), and was trying to get him to say "more". See when Brody wants more, he does this deep grunting yell until he gets it, not cute. Well, he said it! Clear as day, "more" came out of his mouth. 3 different times! Hallelujah!!!! When I ask him, "Where is it?" he puts his hands out and shakes his head like he's saying, "don't know".
Favorites: He loves Elmo, much to Eric's dismay. He also is totally obsessed with cars and trucks. He makes the sounds and everything. Balls are another favorite of his! His favorite possession? His blanket....yep he is Linus. He would stay outside all day if I let him. And if there is any type of music on, he WILL bust a move. His latest activities include: getting hurt, chasing Delaney, and climbing WHATEVER he can.
"Wait, she's not chasing me, she's taking a picture, alright!" (Maybe that sent the wrong message)
"oh crap, here she comes!"
Sleeping: No comment
Foods: If it's edible, he eats it (and some that are not so edible, like freaking rocks, ugh)
So there's Monkey man at 13 months old. Someone asked me the other day how old my kids are and I said, "I have a one year old and a two year year old. That sounded crazy to me! I love my kids even though by the end of the day, I understand how alcoholics become that way:)
***On a side note, Delaney is now calling Brody, "Brody man". All. The. Time. Too cute.
