Wow

Wow Seth, it's been a while since I wrote anything here. You had a great 12-month check up at your Doctor's office. You are 31 inches long (tall boy!) and weigh 19 and some odd oz's (I forgot) So you're kinda skinny. I love you so much. You are starting to drink a little bit of whole milk each day. Tomorrow I'm going to put away all the baby bottles except one for your before bed bottle. We're going to go shopping for more sippy cups. You're getting to be such a big boy now. This weekend you had fun with your Uncle Bob and soon to be Aunt Anna. They played with you and bought you some cool birthday presents. You just fell asleep for the night, you cried a bit because I think you were over tired from all the playing this weekend. You also only took one nap today, so tomorrow it's back to two naps a day, at least for a few more weeks I think. Well, got to go take Gus outside. Love, Mom.

Everybody clap your hands

Today your Aunt Stephanie and I went into NYC to see our favorite Broadway show RENT! I won tickets in a lotto drawing and we got to sit in the 2nd row. We had a great time, but we missed you. You hung out with your daddy and Aunt Jennifer and Grandma and Grandpa White. When Aunt Stephie and I got home you had a new trick. Grandma White taught you how to clap your hands. You look terribly cute doing it little Seth. You are just the cutest baby EVER!
Love, Mom

New Tooth

Seth, you seem to have a new tooth popping in. This time it's on the top. Yay! It's about time! We thought you were only going to have two bottom teeth only for the rest of your life. But let me tell you, it's making you VERY cranky. Tonight was the worst in a long time and it's only 10:00pm. Hopefully you sleep well tonight. Tomorrow we pick up Aunt Stephie from the airport! I'm so excited!!!!!! I love you Seth, I hate seeing you in pain!

Super Smarty Pants part two

While we were at my doctor appointment this morning you were a very good boy! You sat in your stroller and read your book. You only threw it on the floor for me to pick up about 3 or 4 times, much less than usual! But the best part was the doctor was watching you read and look around and babble and she said you were very observant for a child of your age and that you appeared very intelligent! She also commented that you had advanced verbal skills. See, you are a super genius baby. Please grow up and be very rich and take care of your mom! Thank you! Here's a rather long video. I haven't edited it yet. But in the middle it shows how creative you are for finding other uses for you foot! video

The cheese stands alone

Today you stood by yourself for approximately 3 seconds. I handed you a book while you were standing up holding onto your baby cage. You let go of the cage and held the book with both hands and stood there. It was an amazing sight. Then you just plopped down on your butt. I think you got scared when I yelled "Look Seth, you're standing all by yourself!"

You got your pictures taken today at Sear's for your first birthday. You wouldn't smile.

Headaches

This new phase of yours is making me re-think plans for a sibling anytime soon.

Yesterday

Yesterday while I was trying to talk on the phone to my cousin Mikey the dog started barking at the vacuum cleaner. (which wasn't on mind you, just up against the wall.) Then Seth managed to wiggle out of his pants, take off his socks and start chewing on them all while emitting a high pitched squeal.

Baby Food

Seth, you are refusing to eat baby food. I'm now having to be more creative with your meals. Today you've eaten three waffles. (kid sized ones) Yesterday you ate pot roast and potatoes. Tonight you'll have grilled chicken breasts.
It's amazing how much you can eat with only two teeth!

Mommy and Son time

Dear Seth, my favorite time of day is 5:00pm, when we sit in the big, comfy chair and watch 90210 while waiting for Daddy to come home.
