12 Months Old

  • Evan is 1 year old!!!! Wow!
  • Evan weighs between 18-19 lbs.  We have his check up with Dr. Evans next week, so we will get all his stats!
  • Evan wears size 3 or 4 diapers.
  • Evan wears 12 month clothes and size 2 shoe.
  • Evan DOES NOT sit still anymore.  He is crawling like a pro and is so happy now that he can get to things on his own.
  • Evan is pulling up to standing position.  He does great in his crib and bath tub, but is still working on other things like the couch or coffee table.  Every day he seems to get better and stronger.
  • Evan has started to push some toys...very slowly.
  • Evan likes to practice getting off the couch feet first on his tummy.
  • Evan loves to try and stand on his own.  He falls quickly, but I think it is so good that he is trying.  Zach said he has stood by himself for a couple second!
  •  Evan is an amazing eater!  He eats everything...but we finally found something he doesn't prefer...hot dogs.
  • Evan LOVES his milk.  He usually gets a some milk in the morning (when I remember) and ALWAYS gets a bottle at night.  We never miss milk at night!
  • Evan still whines ridiculously when he is hungry or sees food.  Wish this could stop!
  • Evan drinks from sippy cups and out of straws great!  And he loves water!
  • Evan is feeding himself which has been such a great milestone to hit!  And he loves to sit in his highchair!
  • Evan is a great little traveler.  For his birthday, Grandma and Grandaddy got him his new carseat and he has loved being turned around.  The first couple rides, he was silent because there was so much more to see!
  • Evan is such a happy, chill kid.  Really the only time he cries is when he is tired or sees his bottle or food.
  • Evan loves his pacie still.  I am trying to limit the pacie to bedtime and in his carseat...and Mass.
  • Evan is extremely curious and loves to crawl all over the house.  Favorite spot...the bathroom!  He loves Zoe's potty which is not cool, so the door stays closed.
  • Evan loves sleeping with his train blankie!
  • Evan talks a lot and has finally started to say the "ma ma" sound!
  • Evan hums and sings a lot too.
  • Evan's favorite toy is his pretend drum (a old baby wheels can and a play skewer).
  • Evan loves to pull everything off the coffee table or couch now.
  • Evan has started to pick up something off the ground while standing.  This was really hard for him for awhile, but he has finally gotten it!
  • Evan hates getting his diaper changed because it makes him stop for a second.  He wants to be going all the time.
  • Evan LOVES bath time!  He could care less if water is all over him and in his face...he loves splashing and crawling in the water.  He now pulls up on the side of the tub and plops himself back in the water making a big splash...he giggles and does it all over again!
  • Evan puts everything in his mouth...so small toys have been put up.
  • Evan has green eyes.
  • Evan has very sensitive skin and breaks out with little acne.
  • Evan has two bottom teeth.
  • Evan has brown hair and shows no sign of getting lighter.
  • Evan loves to cuddle...anytime he sees a pillow, he goes straight to it and lays down.
  • Evan loves to play with Zoe and they can entertain each other really well lately.
I can't believe this kid is 1!  Every second of this year has been such a joy and learning experience.  I just love this little guy so much and he has been the perfect addition to our family.  I can't imagine life without him and I am so grateful to God for this perfect gift!
