By the numbers

We have a 25/25/98 up in here after Robbie's one year appt today.

Robbie's holding firm in the 25th percentile for height and weight, which is pretty much the growth curve he's been on since we got over the "your baby is starving" troubles of the first two months.

And he's a true winner with the inherited 98% head circumference.  Thanks Shawn.

One little blip in baby world... we've been referred to a pediatric opthamalogist.  The doctor doesn't THINK anything is wrong, but his left eye is apparently a little off center.  Better safe that sorry.

And if you know me in real life, please remind me to stop googling "does an off-center eye mean brain tumor". 


Particularly because the appointment isn't for another 6 weeks.

Months in Pictures

(You can get to all the updates in the right column.  I will probably make a separate tab for this at some point, but I loved reading back through all the monthly updates.  It's amazing what a difference a year makes!)

One is Fun!

Well, we officially have a toddler.  No more babies up in here.  (Until Decemberish).

What is one?

One is fun!

And tiring.

  • Robbie is an entertaining little dude.  He's starting to figure out how to crack himself up and likes to mimic funny noises or sounds we make.  He's a big fan of the throwing his head back belly laugh.
  • He's learned how to throw himself onto anything soft, and so far we've avoided disaster.  He likes to climb and crash onto the couch, pillows, our bed, his bed... anything softish.  Waiting for the head-conk disaster, but he's all boy.
  • He can cover the stairs in 20 seconds.  He's starting to learn how to back off of chairs, etc, but we are no where near comfortable with letting him do so without supervision.
  • He's sitting at the table at school.  Crazy.  How the heck can a 12 month old not be in a high chair?
  • He's given up all vegetables.  Feeds them straight to Daisy.  We had some success with cucumbers in Maine (which we hadn't tried before), so maybe we're just doing the wrong things...
The last of the monthly updates for Palmetto Baby #1... let's hope we have the time and energy to do them with baby 2!

Tomorrow I'll do a compilation of all the monthly photos.  Little dude is growing up!

Mainely Perfect

We went to Maine.  It was much needed and perfect.  I could live in Maine Augusts for the rest of my life.

Lots of things going on

Been awhile since I have posted.

We have covered lots of ground in the last couple of weeks.

Birthday party for the Robster.  Chick-fil-a nuggets and smash cake for everyone!

This weekend in Maine where we have had an amazing time with Aunt Paula.  Aunt P was kind enough to allow Susann and I to have a date night which was much needed.

NOT looking forward to heading back to reality tomorrow but all things must come to and end.

Not all is lost however - every college football fans Christmas morning is only 4 days away.  Go Cocks!
