One Year Old Check-up

We were finally able to get Will in for his 1 year
Well Baby Visit with Dr. Doyle.
Here is our Little Man’s stats…
27.11 pounds
20 inch head circumference
31 inches tall (but he was really squirmy for that so we aren’t too sure about the accuracy of that number)

The bottom line… HE IS HUGE! He is in the 100% and 98% or off the chart in all areas including cuteness. O.K. maybe the dr. didn’t say that part about the cuteness. But she did get a kick out him wanting her to hold him, hiding his eyes for patty cake, talking all about the baby in his book, and trying to kiss her face off. He wasn’t one bit shy!
We did have a bit of drama getting his blood drawn for his 1 year old iron level test. His arms were so chubby they couldn’t find a vein (after they dug around a bit). They finally did a finger prick. So he was not very happy with the ladies in the lab and then we followed that fun up with five shots! He is a super trooper and is doing great!
Will 1
We love you Will and couldn’t imagine life without you. Thanks for making us laugh everyday! I still can’t believe you are 1.

Grandpa Ross and Grandma Jenna came to visit for Thanksgiving. We had a great time working on Will’s stair climbing skills, playing cards, eating, and even taking a trip to Costco. Here are a few pictures of our time together. What a nice relaxing holiday!

Thanksgiving yumminess! It did taste pretty good if I do say so myself.

I couldn’t get a holding still picture of Will once he sees his bottle. It is about to be sad times around here with the ending of bottles. But Grandpa and Grandma sure learned pretty quick how to get on Will’s good side.

This big smile is following a round of peek a boo.

A warm beautiful day at the park! Did you notice that it is impossible to get all 4 people smiling at the same time?

Thanks for coming to visit Grandpa and Grandma! Can’t wait to see you at Christmas. Maybe I’ll remember to take more pictures that time!
