As I was posting about Abram's birthday, I wished I would have started this blog when he was born, so I could look back at all the milestones... So, I am doing a post to remind myself of his growth in the first year, because we all know that is when they grow the fastest. I find myself already forgetting, when he did what. I am ashamed to admit, I had to pull out his baby book to remind myself. How pitiful. I am so thankful though that Ben took so many pictures his first year! He took at least one picture every week of his first year. I am so glad he did that. Here we go, I am sure these posts are not that interesting to everyone else, but this blog is really a type of a mama diary if you get what I mean. Sorry for gushing...
January 15th, 2009 6 pounds, 11 ounces and 19 1/4 inches long. Born at 11:19 am
March 2009, 2 months old. 13 pounds, 4 ounces and 23 inches long. Rolled over from his belly to his back in March.
May 2009, 4 months old. 18 pounds, 4 ounces and 25 and half inches long. His first laugh was in May :) He also said Dada in June.
July 2009, 6 months old. 21 pounds and 13 ounces and 27 and a half inches long. At 6 months he started sitting on his own, but I remember he would topple over if he started looking around. He had a round tuchy. He also got his first tooth at the end of July.
September 24th, at 8 months, he finally started an army crawl. He never was one to get up on all fours and go, but he would scoot and slide to where he needed to go.
October 2009, 9 months old. 22 pounds 11 ounces. He started getting really brave...he wanted to walk so bad. October he started taking some steps.
He actually started walking at the end of November 2009 right around Thanksgiving.
And here he is taking off...
He also started waving Bye-bye in November, so sweet.
January 2010, One year old. Weighing in at 24 pounds and 11 ounces respectfully :)
He finally started sleeping through the night thanks to his tubes that he got in December, and then he had to have the right one replaced in January. We let him keep his bottle until he was about 14 or 15 months. He never had a pacifier or sucked his thumb, but he wanted a bottle and certain times during the night. Usually around 10:00 pm and 2:00 am. Then when he had to turn in his bottle he replaced it with a blankie, which he still wags around today.
