One year old!

Can you believe it?  I can't.  My baby is a whole year old!

On his birthday, I was thinking a lot about where we were a year before.  All that waiting and anticipation... and then our lives were forever changed by our baby boy.

In the past month, Andrew has taken steps on his own!  He has also been enjoying a walker that we borrowed from my brother's family.  He's getting so sturdy on his feet- I know that one day he'll suddenly be running.  For now though, he seems to know that he can crawl faster than walk, so if he wants to get somewhere he drops to his hands and knees.

Andrew is 25th percentile for weight (20lbs, 15.4oz), and 50th percentile for both height (30") and head circumference (46.5cm).

He had his first Thanksgiving this past month- the last of his first holidays.  Crazy to think that this Christmas is actually his second!

Andrew waves if you say hi to him, feeds himself like a champ, and babbles all day long.

We can't imagine our lives without him.  It has been a great first year and I have loved watching him grow and learn every day.

New things for Andrew this month:
Playing in the snow
Using a walker
First steps!

No more monthly posts from here on out!
