13 months

Matthew Jay you are 13 months old!

What have you been up to these days?

As of 12.5 months old, here are your stats:
Weight: 20.5 pounds (30th percentile).
Head: big and in the 95th percentile!
Height: 30 inches (60th percentile)
Just like your Daddy when he was a baby!

You got 4 shots at your check-up. You screamed when the nurse gave them to you, but after some snuggles and a sticker to distract you, things were all better!

Baseball season officially started for Daddy. He has had alot of late nights, and is very busy these days. You miss your Daddy, but I know that he misses his bubbers even more! Grammy is loving all the time she is getting to see you :) You love going to Daddy's baseball games! You absolutely wear me out though. You are one busy boy, and I feel like I spend the whole game chasing you down. We pack lots of snacks and fun toys to keep you distracted! Your Daddy loves having us come to his baseball games though.

You sleep at night from 7:30 or 8 until 7:30 in the morning. Lately, you've stayed up a little later so that Daddy can see you and give you a bottle before bedtime. You still nap for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. You NEVER fight your naps or going to bed (knock on wood!). You absolutely love your crib. When you are tired, we can tell you that it's time to go night-night, and you will literally drop whatever toy you are playing with, walk over to the stairs, climb upstairs, and go into your bedroom ready to sleep! SO aborable, and we are very thankful for such a good sleeper!

You are one busy boy from the moment you wake up until you go to bed. You go from one toy or activity to the next...always ready to explore and play!

Grammy and Grandpa got you a mini basketball hoop for your birthday. You love to shoot hoops. You go pick up your ball, walk it over to the hoop and dunk it! When you put the ball in the hoop, you look at whoever is watching you and get so excited and giggle when we say "2 points!"

You had a cold the end of February. Thankfully you go over it very quickly.

You love swinging in a blanket!

We put music on, and you dance with Mommy and Daddy!

Your new favorite food is blueberry pancakes...yummy! You are a picky eater these days.

You can now go down the stairs as well as climb up them! You scoot your self down them backwards.

You absolutely love playing on the couch, and climbing around on the cushions and pillows. You love it even more when someone will wrestle you and toss you into a pile of pillows. All boy!

You say about 10 words. Mama, dada, baba (bottle), nigh-nigh, down, uh-oh, grammy/grandpa, dog, ball, nana (banana).

Grammy still watches you in the mornings before I get home from work. She warms up her coffee in the microwave and you like to open and close the door for her. Everytime that she takes her coffee out of the microwave, she will tell you that it's H-H-Hot. Now, whenever you see a coffe cup, you say HHHH (making the H sound)! Grammy and Grandpa also have a stove at their house that gets hot. One night we found you in front of it saying HHHH!

You love to play outside and go on walks. We havn't been able to get out very much because the weather has been so cold and wet, but I know you will be outside all the time this spring and summer!

You love cars and trucks! Whenever you see a car out the window, walk by a car, or play with a car or truck, you get your little motor mouth running and make the cutest car noise! You love to watch for cars or the garbage man out the window too.

We have quickly learned that we have to keep our pantry doors closed. If we forget, you will go into the pantry, pull out the spices, open the lids, and suck on the top of whatever spice you can get your hands on...garlic powder, seasoning salt, cream of tartar...yuck! These days, you also love to get into anything you really aren't supposed to get the recycling!

We taught you how to throw your diaper away. I know that you'll be such a big helper when your baby sister arrives!

We love you more and more each day Matthew Jay!
