Well I've already told you that Bryce didn't gain any weight in the past 3 months, but he did grow a little bit. We really hoped he would get the Boone genes and be tall. I'm pretty sure he is going to be a shrimp just like us, ha! I don't understand how he can fill out these 18 month pajamas and only be in the 25th percentile for height and weight. Normal size babies must be months ahead in clothing size. Just wanted to update you on what our little one year old is up to these days.

Bryce has a growing vocabulary. Not only can he repeat words when asked, he can name objects when he sees them. He can say cat, dog, book, ball, bus, s"no"w, ma ma, da da, na na, fish, duck, bye bye and tiger. There may still be some that I missed. He can make the elephant sound, too. He used to make a cow and a sheep sound, but he has forgotten those. He is very good about following commands like turn off the tv and take your paci out!

He has been standing on his own for about a month now and each day he is taking a few more steps at a time before falling to the ground. I can tell he is getting more confident and less wobbly.

He continues to take two naps a day and sleep through the night. He loves to give kisses and he lays his head down on you when you say, "love on _______". He is starting to learn how to share, but I'm sure he will quickly forget how to do that. Whenever he eats a lollipop I ask him if he will share it with me. He always pulls it out of his mouth and puts it at mine. Even after I have stopped asking, he hands it to me every other lick. Too cute!

We are making the switch over to whole milk. I have started giving him a cup of milk throughout the day and he seems to drink a little more each time. He loves to eat, which is why it baffles me that he hasn't gained any weight. I guess crawling burns a lot of calories.

Bryce is starting to get his top two teeth and two more bottom teeth. He is still in size 3 diapers and 12 month clothes. He enjoys climbing and he can get himself down from his bench and the sofa.

I am sure that there are many things that I have left out, but I think I have done enough bragging for tonight! It just amazes me what he is capable of doing. What a difference a year makes. Who knows what he will be doing a year from now!
