thirteen months.

was anyone wondering if i'd keep up the monthly updates now that p-ray's turned one?  well, if you were {and i'm sure i'm talking to approximately one of you} the answer is yes.  i am.  because this is parker's baby book of sorts & he is changing so much month to month that i gotta stay on it.

so here we go.  thirteen months.


no sock monkey this year.  we've upgraded to the sock zebra.  and no messing around with laying flat down on a blanket either... we sit on a couch now.  because we're one.


parker has changed like crazy in the last month.  every day he learns a new word & becomes so much more boy like.  he has the sweetest little voice & i love our conversations.  i have no idea what he's saying, but it sure is sweet.  the words he does say are dada, mama, ball, duck, wow, uh oh, night-night, no, & nana (banana).  he gives big wet kisses & the best hugs.  he loves to read books & watch picture slideshow on the apple tv.  he is super ticklish around his armpits & thighs & if you tickle him with your toes he loses it.  he still hates diaper changes more than anything & has even told me "no no no no" when i lay him down to change him.  he knows that his socks & shoes go on his feet & he's been found with my tennis shoes on more than once.

when he sees something cool he points, usually with his middle finger, & says "whooooa" with a loud gasp of amazement.  he does this with our ceiling fan multiple times a day.  he loves playing chase & being chased.  he is walking while holding on with one hand & will hopefully take off on his own this coming month.  who knows.

he has learned to complain & fuss & has thrown a couple legit temper tantrums this month.  he even screamed at the top of his lungs with a red face when i dared to buckle him in to the cart at target.  this is all very new to me.


he loves his blanket like nobody's business & takes it with him everywhere he goes.  he grabs onto it when i pull him out of his crib in the morning & reaches for it during story time at night.  it's his bff.

he still takes a bottle first thing in the morning & last thing at night {mostly because i want to burn through the last of our formula supply} & is on whole milk with meals.  his diet is worthy of a post all in itself but so far his favorite foods are lasagna, squeezy pouches {anything from a squeezy pouch}, yogurt, toast, & cheese.  he prefers to drink everything from a straw.

he's wearing all twelve to eighteen month clothes, size four diapers, size four or five shoes, & sleeps about twelve hours a night {eight to eight... most days}.  he has eight teeth.

and he is still so dang cute.


love this kid.

love your votes too. fer reals.

  4. So dang cute is right! Don't you love how kids are so happy with simple pleasures, a ceiling fan, a blanket, simple foods. It's so humbling.

  9. Go P-Ray! Sounds like he is growing by leaps and bounds on you, mama! He is too stinkin' cute. I love that his blanket is his BFF. We had a blanket around here for the first year or so. But then we graduated to a "big boy toy" and carry a stuffed dog. :)

  19. isn't crazy how quickly they seem to "grow up" from 12 months to 13 months? I think I've called the boy a 'small adult' or a 'little kid' numerous times this month.

  21. I wish I had done the month thing (even just a month photo) but never 'had the time' but then you never get it back, so kudos to you to keep it up, it is something he will really appreciate looking back on.
