Raynes | 12 months

The 12 month mark has come and gone– as has the time. Now that the little man is approaching his 13 month (ouch) benchmark, I realized this post is past due.

Here are your latest stats:

Height: 31 inches   (85th percentile)
Weight:  22 lb 14 oz   (50th percentile)
Head Circumference: 47.9 cm   (70th percentile)

Favorite Foods: Bananas, blueberries, chicken, croissants, strawberries, applejuice, cinnamon toast with cream cheese, and the ever staple- goldfish.


Demeanor: You are still sweet and easy going, until you get hungry. Hell hath’ no fury like a hungry boy. You could care less about your room full of toys, much preferring opening cabinets, moving tables and touching anything you can put your hands on. The toilet bolt covers are still a favorite, as is your bottle drawer (the only one without a child lock- ran out), and of course the toilet… finally, your sisters have learned to keep that lid shut.

So much for keeping your ’12 month’ sticker on your shirt…

Mobility: Goodbye crawling Raynes, you toddle and waddle everywhere now. You even know to slide off the couch, legs first. Don’t know how you learned to do that.  Either way, you are fast.

Firsts: You like to wipe your highchair (making your mama proud), talk on the phone, and say “bye” in an extremly deep and manly voice.

Sleeping: You nap in the mornings, and again in the afternoon. You go to bed at 6:45 pm and sleep 12-13 hours. I love that you are a good sleeper, it may be the only thing that keeps me sane.

Physical Appearance: Your hair is growing long, and it is straight. Slightly less ginger’ish in appearance you are still our little snap.       Your feet grew from a size 3 to a 5 overnight and you have finally graduated to a size 4 diaper (barely).                                                                                                


The fun just picks up full speed from here, I can tell.
