12 Month Stats

Cole had his 12 month check-up today which meant a lot of mommy trying to distract him from Dr. Guetersloh checking out his ears and teeth and lungs. He did ok with everything except for the ears. Cole HATES to have his ears messed with, but he survived. Dr. G said he looked great and is a "big boy" {can you tell by his thighs and belly in this picture?!} Then it was shot time. Poor little guy never saw it coming. He was so brave though and only screamed for a second....really! He didn't even shed a tear, he just screamed until his face turned bright red and then he was done. I am so lucky to have just a tough little man as a son! Here are his stats and fun things we get to work on over the next 3 months until his 15 month appointment:
Weight: 27 lbs. 3 oz. {95th percentile}
Height: 30 3/4 inches {90th percentile}
Head: 19 inches {97th percentile}
  • Cole can now have whole milk and be weaned off baby formula
  • No more yucky baby food. Cole gets to eat real food now!
  • He can ride facing forward in his car seat. Finally!
  • We need to start disciplining and ignoring tantrums {no tantrums yet but I am sure they are coming}
  • His vocabulary should start developing more and more over the next few months {lots of reading, talking to him, pointing things out and telling him what they are is important}
  • No more bottle! He has to learn how to drink from a sippy cup {we have been trying and it isn't working so far...this one is huge for me}
  • Walking {he is soooo close!}
