We still have no teeth, but are doing considerably better on eating. As long as I feed him fruit, bread, bologna or hot dogs he'll eat with no problem! I guess there is nothing wrong with that kind if diet right?! He communicates pretty well, but only because we usually know what he is wanting. Still not very many actual words. Just ma, da and ba. I'm almost positive this kid could totally walk by himself, but he is pretty stubborn. The way he sees it, he's not going to walk anywhere unless he has one hand being held onto by someone. He did graduate from the army crawl to regular crawling now.
We had to do a follow up appointment for his lack of weight gain, and went back last week and he is up to 20 lbs 3 oz. Still a super small guy, but at least there was a gain. We will keep trying to pack in the food and hopefully the pounds.
What a diffrence a year makes. Last year on Mothers Day I believe we went for our first stroller ride. I know everyone will agree. There's no better feeling than being a mom!
Blaise has also made an official trip to the zoo, spent some nights at Grandpa and Grandma Sudmann's, helped with yard work, ate at a few restaurants, went to Scheels, and makes regular trips to Hy-Vee now with mom. Of course I'm biased, but I'm a little surprised and how many comments he gets about being a cute kid! He is pretty darn special!
