Look who's walking

Ian has started walking! Okay, it's really more of a work in progress, but he made some major progress in the last few days. Last night at Best Buy he let go of our hands and walked over to something on the shelf. His daddy, the avid gamer, was proud Ian was walking to pick out things in the video game section of the store. He's also gotten where he can stop and start going again. It's going to be a real adventure the day he let's loose for good!

"I have some bad news..."

"...He's not a baby anymore, he's a toddler." Sad, huh? Ian had his 12 month check-up Friday. The good news is that Ian has gained some weight and is moving up on the chart. He is now at the 10th percentile for weight(19.8 lbs) and 25th for height(29.5 in). Last visit he was in the 3rd for his weight. It's comforting to know that he's plumping up a bit. It's become noticeable by looking at his little chunk legs. They're so cute! Everything else looked good as well. The doctor guessed Ian would be walking in 2-3 weeks. He will take a few good steps every now and then, but then he goes back to crawling. Soon our little tot will be running around the place.

Birthday bash

Ian had his first birthday party last weekend. We had most of our close family and good friends there to celebrate the special day. Ian had a great time laughing with everyone and ate up all the attention from his party guests.
He wasn't a big fan of the cake...

...but he loved Uncle Tim's ice cream. Yummy!

Checking out a new book with Mama.

Speech progress

Just a quick update: Ian has started saying bye-bye while waving! He also said da-da yesterday! He's getting to where he needs to be, slowly but surely.
