One Year stats
Jacob and Elizabeth had their one year check ups yesterday. They are little peanuts but growing steady. Jacob currently weighs 18 lbs and is 29" long. Elizabeth is ahead on the weight at 18.1 lbs but behind on the height at 27 1/2" long. They had one vaccination. They also had to have blood drawn for their iron and lead level testing. That part was not fun for mom! It was hard to hold them still and yet Jacob still succeeded in bleeding all over me.
Jacob has graduated from his belly crawl to all 4s. I guess he decided sliding on his belly just wasn't the best way to get around. He's got 6 teeth - 2 on bottom, the rest up top. He will pull himself to standing on anything but will buckle at the knees if you try to stand him up! He's pretty good at eating table foods - long gone are the days of puree. He's not allowed to have an dairy due to an allergy discovered back in February. But he seems to love his soy milk, yogurt and ice cream! His vocabulary isn't huge...mostly mama and dada. His favorite tantrum activity is to fling himself over backwards...often bonking his head.
Elizabeth will walk if you hold her hand or using a toy (any toy works...it doesn't necessarily have to be a walker). Otherwise she travels via a speedy crawl. She has only 2 teeth on the bottom but may finally be working on some top ones. Being mostly gums doesn't seem to phase her - she still chomps away at her food. She's a little more verbal than Jacob but it's still all baby babble to me. She loves to point and is very much a mama's girl. Woe is anyone that tries to get between us!
