One Year Check Up Today!We have come a LONG way from the tiny infant stage.....

JJ is 23 pounds, 30 inches long and has a nice big head (his doc says he has a big brain like mommy and daddy)

JJ started walking at 10 months, to date he has 18 words, two signs (finished and bye bye).....Doc says he is PERFECT....doesn't want to see us for six months!

No more formula, Doc suggested we switch to milk (which I hate to do....wish we were done with bottles all together...at least I can get organic milk).....JJ has been VERY slow to go to solid foods...we think this is because of his very high metabolism (just like another Jason in our family) and his lack of teeth (he has only four, the average is 10 at one year of age). He is still drinking 32-40 ounces per day.

So this week I am going to switch to milk in the day (formula at night, for sleepy parents who can't walk to the kitchen) and encourage more solids.....maybe we'll be bottle free by 18 months? Gotta have a goal eh?

Doc says for a baby who "coded" at birth, he is amazing.....and I must agree!

He is so fantastic. We just adore that little man so much. Feeding kids is one of the worst jobs I have ever had. Nothing wears on my mind more! :)

Try a sippy cup to free yourself from bottle. He will love it. Frankie only had a few teeth at one and barely any hair. Now I swear things live in his hair when it gets too long he has so much of it and the teeth just started popping out like crazy.
