You love to get up and go somewhere in the morning. If you think someone is going somewhere without you, you are not at all happy about it. You take one nap a day and wake up about once a night, take a bottle, and go back to sleep. You were sick off and on your eleventh month, thanks to all of the back to school germs and your busy social schedule.
You love to chatter and you like to practice your sounds, especially when you hear me helping Spencer with his sounds. You love to "sing" with us and dance along to the music. You gracefully move your hips and shoulders side to side. It's one of the cutest things I've ever seen. The people at library story time think it's pretty precious too. You can also throw a pretty respectable temper tantrum when the situation calls for it. It's the only time you look anything like your mother.
You love for me to brush your teeth. You used to cry and cry while I brushed his teeth, and I finally realized you had gotten teeth months ago and that I should probably get you a toothbrush of your own. Two of your top teeth have come in, but they are not the front ones (they're the lateral incisors). Dr. Martin told me she can see your two front middle teeth (central incisors) working their way in, so I've stopped worrying that you might not have them. Ha! You also love to play in the toilet. You were dunking two different passies in it today. Ugh. So gross. I'm so sorry I continue to let you do that.
At twelve months you weighed 19 lbs. 6 oz. (22nd percentile), were 28.8" tall (40th percentile) and had a head circumference of 17.75" (50th percentile).
