Carter: 13 months

Wow, 13 months already?!  I do plan on continuing to say "He just turned 1" for quite awhile more though.  =)


* He's fully walking so he's FINALLY not putting nasty stuff in his mouth all the time.
* He loves to tot around bringing me things.
* He can quickly stand back up from the floor without pulling up on something.
* I rearranged 2 of the kitchen cupboards so instead of Carter getting into all of my spice bottles he can get out our little plastic bowls and storage dishes.  And boy, does he!
* He loves books, but he wants to hold and explore it himself.
* He puts toy phones to his ear now.
* He still won't take to a sippy cup but he will need to soon because 2 of his 3 bottles have broken!  Probably because he just drops them down all the time!
* He likes to be cool-dude and hold his bottle with one hand now.
* We no longer need to warm his milk at all.
* The steps are gated off all the time now.
* He loves bath and will try to climb into the tub when he hears the water running.
* He loves to climb into Hannah's toddler bed and "play".
* Still naps 2x a day for 2 hrs and goes to bed at ~7:30pm.  But he's getting MUCH more flexible if we happen to stay somewhere much longer than his normal nap time would be.
* Our biggest battle right now is that he continuously stands in his high chair.  Earlier in the month he would shake his head NO as he did it.  Naughty boy!
* I'm still getting used to the increase in food consumption!  More eggs to scramble, more pancakes or french toast to fry, and more gallons of milk we go through!  He seriously eats equal if not more than Eli and Hannah do!
* He blows on his food after he sees me do it.
* He points to things he gets excited about-- ie when we on turn the TV he points and makes an excited Oo sound.
* Says mama, dadda, bye bye.  No real words especially but we can definitely see him trying.
* He's still rear facing in the car for quite awhile longer.

Little boy, you are changing and growing up so fast!
