I know I said I wasn't going to do monthly updates anymore, but I can't help myself. I LOVE looking back at these posts. And quite honestly, I'm horrible at updating his baby book so this blog sort of takes the place of that (I plan to print off these monthly updates and put them in a book so I'll always have them.) But in any case, I'm here doing his 13 month update (a day early actually!) It was such a HUGE month for him, I just HAD to do one. As with every month, there are so many things I don't want to forget.
~ First and foremost...Camden is walking. He really started walking about a week or so after his 1st birthday. And at this point, it's his preferred method of getting around. Watching him walk is by far the cutest thing EVER.
~ His vocabulary has also exploded this month. I think he's up to 10 words, including kitty, thank you, and cheers.
~ He is still small for his age - he's about the size of your average 9 month old. But he's growing like a weed and is perfectly perfect in every way!! At his one year doctor's appointment he weighed 18lbs and 12oz and was 29.5" long!
~ Dances like an adorable fool (I use that term lovingly!!) when he hears music
~ He is fiercely independent (jeez - I wonder where he gets that from?!?) And definitely knows what he wants, when he wants, and has no problem telling us.
~ This kid LOVES to nurse. What he doesn't love?...whole milk.
~ Loves to look at his picture books and the pictures we have on our walls and point people out and say their names.
~ Really loves helping us, whether it's throwing something in the garbage, picking up his toys at night, checking the mail, or helping pick out his clothes.
~ Has not been taking a morning nap at daycare. But we're working on it. He's just not ready to drop down to 1 nap. So we're all definitely trying to get this straightened out and hopefully he'll get back on track soon.
~ Would eat clementines...and only clementines...at every meal if we'd let him.
~ Loves, loves, loves his stuffed animals and has really gotten attached to his puppy lovey.
~ He's still a total mama's boy and I love it.
~ Been sick a lot this past month (and vomited for the first time!) But despite not feeling 100% - you'd never know it (most of the time.)
~ Had to have some blood drawn venously (all results came back great so nothing to worry about thank goodness.) He did so much better than we expected - but goodness it was so hard on Matt and I!!
~ He has these adorable little curls that I just can't get enough of (and thus why his hair is long...I don't have the heart to cut it!!!)
~ For a while I thought he'd be a lefty like me...BUT I'm sad to say I'm 99% sure he'll be a righty.
~ He now has 8 teeth - 3 on top, 4 on the bottom, and 1 molar!!!
~ We fall more in love with this little dude EVERY SINGLE DAY. He's such a good kid - honestly. We know we got lucky. And dang he's cute (strangers stop us all the time so I know it's not just us that thinks this!) I'm so incredibly proud of Camden every day and I'm so lucky to be his mama.
