David: 12 months

Posted by Picasa
This has been a big month for the Big D ... or Chester Cheetah as I affectionately call him. (Don't ask me why because I don't really have a good answer.)

David is now officially walking, running, climbing ... and even talking a little bit. He says "mama" and "dada" and "uh-oh" and I've even seen him wave and say "bye" a couple of times. Other than all the constant activity, he is still a very laid back baby. This month was filled with birthday parties (his and others), Easter egg hunts and lots of other fun stuff.

He takes quite a bit of abuse from Claire now too. I guess she thinks he is no longer a baby since he started walking. She is particularly fond of tackling him.

He is quite proficient in the climbing department (see below). He did this all by himself and then got really mad when he couldn't get the refrigerator open. Did I mention that he is a very good eater too! We have actually had to put this little table and chairs away because David was pushing them all over the kitchen so that he could climb up on them and reach stuff that he probably shouldn't be getting in to.

Official stats from his 12-month well check with the pediatrician.
Weight: 21 pounds, 9 oz. (25th percentile)
Height: 29-1/4 inches (25-50th percentile)
Head circumference: 19-3/4 inches (97th percentile) (still big, but still plateauing off on the growth chart)
