I already posted about Charlie's big birthday bash, but I wanted to give some highlights about our little man at the one-year mark...
The big highlight is his refined walking skills - the guy is moving around great now! At his first birthday he has stopped crawling altogether for the most part. He thinks he's a big shot too, that's for sure!
He sprouted several new teeth in his twelfth month - he now has all four on top and bottom, along with two of his molars. Those puppies were a little painful when they were coming in, so we're not looking forward to the arrival of the remaining molars.
Charlie had his one-year check-up and the doctor said he was right on track with his development except for one thing: pointing. He should be pointing by now but so far I've only witnessed him pointing with a fist. Something to work on, I suppose. He's still on high end of the chart for size: 24 lbs, 12 oz (89.7%), 31.5" long (95%) and still has a large head at 19.76" (off the charts). He had to get two shots and also got blood drawn to test for anemia (routine at one year), which was not fun.
Within a couple weeks of his birthday we cut out the bottles completely and Charlie now drinks his whole milk out of a sippy cup. He likes it, but not nearly as much as Jack, who would drink a gallon of milk a day if we allowed it.
Charlie loves to dance when he hears music:
Here is the completed collage of monthly pictures. Sigh...
