Isaac at One Year

 So Isaac turned one at the beginning of June. Here are some of his stats and a few recent photos:
  • He is still crawling mostly. He walks well with a finger or a couch or wall to hold onto for balance.
  • He loves to climb. He’ll try and climb up anything. He loves the park and can climb up a small slide without help.
  • He is as flirty and social as ever. He still gives the occasional bashful swoon and gives lots of kisses when he feels inclined.
  • His favorite things to play with are balls, cars, and anything with buttons or wires. It’s so funny to see him say “arro” into his calculator as if it’s a cell phone. (Although we’ve also seen him do this with balls, cars, and even once, a diaper!)
  • He’s “talking” more and more. He says Mama, mum, dada, ball, mow (which is what cats, cows and dogs say), all done, and sometimes says “I love you” and once “amen” although he’s not super consistent.
  • He still takes two naps each day, each about 2 ½ hours long.
  • He loves his books and likes to turn the pages. He loves me to read them with him but also enjoys going through them on his own, usually upside down.
  • He has 7 teeth.
  • He was 23.3 pounds and 28 inches long at his last check up a month or so ago, which is 79th% for weight and 2nd% for height (quite a drop from 47th% but we’ll see what how he measures next time).
  • He still loves bananas but has recently discovered blueberries. He prefers them to pretty much everything else. He also enjoys peanut butter a lot, oatmeal, graham crackers, apple juice, water, butter on toast, yoghurts, sweet potatoes, and pretty much any kind of fruit.
  • He is still chubby, but his ankles are now slowly materializing. I’m hoping this means we’ll soon be able to find a pair of shoes that will stay on his feet!
  • He drinks from a sippy cup. He likes to drink from a regular cup too but left alone will pour it all over himself.
  • He gives high fives.
  • He helps put his toys back in their basket.
  • He enjoys brushing his teeth at night.
  • He cries when daddy leaves for work.
  • And some of his dislikes: Not having free access to the cupboards, having to lie still for diaper changes, washing his face, having to wait to be fed, and not getting his naps.
