Tanner Wayne

Yesterday I took the morning off of work to take Tanner to his 12 month well check. We had to go all the way out to the Great Bridge office but it was worth it to see Dr. Scott before June! Tanner is 23 lbs 10 oz (60th percentile) and 30 1/2 inches long (80th percentile)! I knew he was around 23-25 lbs but I thought he would be higher on the chart than that! Dr. Scott was really pleased with all of the babbling that Tanner was doing and the physical progress. He is not walking yet (which is no concern) but he is crawling and walking on his knees, waving, giving high fives, and starting to say a few words. He is eating all table foods now and drinking regular milk. Both kids will be going to 1 or 2% milk the next time we go to the store. Tanner is still having one bottle at night but that is getting smaller and smaller so pretty soon it will be gone. He only has his binky in the bed and I think we'll probably let him have it at least until summer time. I'm not ready to go through that quite yet!

At the end of the appointment Tanner had his foot pricked to check for anemia (which of course was fine) and he didn't cry at all. He was more annoyed that the nurse wouldn't let go of his foot! Then he had three shots. He cried like his heart was broken and it took me longer than normal to calm him down, but after a few minutes he was fine. I took him home and then headed off to work but it was so nice to spend the morning with him and have such a great check up!

First Birthday Party!

On Saturday we had Tanner's first birthday party. We had a lot of family and friends over to celebrate including a bunch of little ones for Tanner to play with! We went with a baby animal theme and really focused on monkeys. Tanner had a great time ad got lots of great gifts. He got several really cute outfits, a bunch of trucks and other toys (which we didn't already have) and a bunch of new Disney movies! We got him a mega blocks table. Both Tanner and Izzy play with the blocks all the time. The table will go in Tanner's room and it has some extra building pieces other than the blocks. It is also portable so we can take it on vacation with us! He loved his cupcake and all the other food we let him have. After the party Tanner and Izzy played outside for a little while and then went to bed. We had some friends stay for the UFC fight. It was a really great day, thanks to everyone who came and celebrated with us!
