Can you believe that this will be our last monthly chalkboard update? 12 months of chalkboards coming to an end. Tear. Or should I do them for 13 mos, 14 mos and so on?? Totally kidding. Maybe. Henry is 23 months!!! lol. I won't. I will probably do some festive holiday boards, but no more monthly updates. I can't even wrap my mind around that. I've shed enough tears over it, so instead of rambling I'll just tell you guys a little about Henry at 12 months...
He has pushed one molar through and is working on more.
He points and is working on words.
He is officially off of formula.
He is 100% bottle free.
He hates milk of any type, so we are really focusing on yogurt and cheese.
He used his first "sign:" more.
He drinks from a straw.
He loves to throw balls.
Wagon rides are his jam. Today he learned how to open and close the door to his wagon and climbs in and out.
He LOVES stuffed animals. Specifically Mr. Bear and Mr. Monkey.
The child eats veggie straws like they're going out of style.
Tries to say several words including, but not limited to, dadda, tego, and hello.
He holds the phone up to his ear and pretends to be talking to someone (oops).
He likes to turn the light switches on and off (while someone is holding him, obvi).
He still loves to be outside. I don't know what I'm going to do with him this winter.
He loves other little people. Our neighbor's sons are his absolute favorite. I'm positive they'll all be best friends when they get older.
He really enjoys some occasional Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
He reaches for my hands and takes it while we're walking. <3
He is a momma-snuggling machine.
He is still the neediest, fussiest baby ever, but at the same time he is sweet and happy and just wants all your love. What momma could be upset that her baby wants her?? :)
There is so much more, but I'm sleepy and I'm sure we'll have plenty of time to talk about Henry.
Before I go, here's a look back at our chalkboard walls...
