Now we are one

Mr Cedar. One year and five days old. Well, technically four and a half days I guess, LOL. His birth is recent enough that the evening part of it is still relevant, or so I am going to claim... He had his Child Health Nurse check this morning and weighed in at 9.79kg and is 76cm long. Interesting comparison, Ash had his 12 month check a couple of weeks earlier than Cedar (comparatively I mean, Ash's check was 12 days before he turned one, Cedar's is 5 days after turning one) and Ash weighed in at 9.7kg and 76cm. So, basically the exact same measurements! We may just have another strong one...



Hmm, what else. Cedar has 8 teeth, and has had them all for a couple of months at least. He is a great eater and puts away more than Ash at dinnertime (granted, the evening meal is not one of Ash's strengths). Loves the bath, loves to be picked up - but doesn't cuddle much, just looks around and pats you, alternates between having one nap a day and two naps, loves bopping along to music and "sings" along to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. He still has a sort of bum shuffle - imagine kneeling, then sitting your bottom down with your knees in front of you at an angle. In that position, he leans forward and uses his hands to drag himself around.


He stands up with support or in his cot. He claps a lot, to get picked up or when he is happy. He laughs in excitement if he sees his drink of milk being prepared, and totally cracks it if you don't give it to him straight away. He pulls his hats off. And socks, every time. He is getting to be size 1 in most clothes, depending on the brand of course. He isn't remotely interested in television of any kind - including Baby Einstein, Brainy Baby, which the other kids still enjoy now and then. Sienna and Ash make him laugh, and he loves the cats too.

He always tries to play with the dishwasher when we are stacking or unloading, and always goes into the corner cupboard and pulls out saucepan lids and cake tins. He throws food on the floor. He broke the lid on his new water bottle by throwing it with great force from a shopping trolley. He flaps his hands when excited or stressed. He shakes his head when told 'no', or 'don't touch'.He loves shaking his water bottle so that the water comes out. He loves books, and is always trying to get to the technology, to whack the laptop or eat the remote control and/or mobile phone.

Also, he is awesome.
