Name: Jackie
LO(s): Aiden, 13 months tomorrow!
Stats (as close as you know): He was a tad over 20lbs and 29.5" at his 1 year appt.
Diaper/clothing sizes: He's in 18 month onesies and shirts, but 12 month pants.
How's whole milk going? (haven't tried yet, allergic, loves it, hates it?): It took him about a week to 'get' it, but he loves it now. He thinks it's just a new fun thing to drink, not as a replacement to nursing. lol
Movement? (walking, few steps, cruising, crawling, loves being a lump still?): He's a full up walker who's even running now! I can't believe this is the same kid who was afraid to stand a month ago!
First word? Any other words? No words yet, unless you count him pointing at me and saying "da de" which I don't. I'm not his daddy. Lol
Favorite toy(s)? books!!!, this slide he got from my SIL for his birthday, blocks, and this annoying turtle from my uncle.
Other than Christmas, what are you looking forward to this month? Finding a place to live and settling there even though it's temporary. I hate not having a place to live lined up and it makes me nervous.
Any current frustrations? Moving. My cat!!! And Aiden turning into the devil child. *sigh*
And of course, share a recent picture! :mrgreen:

At the really cool new park in Memphis: (seriously, check this place out!!!)

At the Memphis Zoo Lights:

Stats (as close as you know): 41 lbs (I know I know!) and probably over 32 inches now.
Diaper/clothing sizes: size 6 diapers and 3T clothes. LOL! He's huge!
How's whole milk going? (haven't tried yet, allergic, loves it, hates it?): He doesnt love it, but will take it if mixed in a bottle and as an ingredient. We've decreased the amount he consumes as he got a diaper rash and diarrhea when we really started giving him more. I dont think it's a major reaction and I'm sure he'll out grow it.
Movement? (walking, few steps, cruising, crawling, loves being a lump still?): Walking since 12 months, and he moves, but is still klutzy at times. He also loves climbing now, up the stairs, the couch, etc.
First word? Any other words? His first word was Dada, but he also says kitty, Mama, what's that, all done.
Favorite toy(s)? Anything that ISNT a toy. LOL!!
Other than Christmas, what are you looking forward to this month?
Any current frustrations? He's into EVERYTHING!!! He drives me crazy! LOL!! You cant turn your back for a second!
And of course, share a recent picture! See facebook! I'll post some later when I get a chance. Right now he's eating a cardboard tube from wrapping paper so I guess I should stop him right?? LOL!!
