12 Month Stats

Yesterday Tanner had his 12 month checkup and vaccinations.  He was a really well behave little boy until the nurse started with the shot business.  Then you would have thought that someone was cutting off his pinky by the way he screamed.  Poor Boy :(  Then he had to continue to milk it and fake cry, pushing out a pathetic attempt at real crying, every time anyone looked at him and gave him sympathy.  It was actually quite funny at that point.  He’s such a little ham.  Anyways, here are his height and weight stats:

Height: 30 inches 55%

Weight: 23lbs 7 oz 58%

Head circ: 19inches 92%

He’s also learned sooooo much in the past couple months.  It seems like everyday he is doing something new and surprising us.  Here are some of 1 year old “tricks”:

High Fives

Dancing (to ANY music he hears)-video of that coming soon



Laughing when we laugh (even though he has no clue why we are laughing)

Noises he can make: Truck (pushes his cars and rumbles his lips), cow, kitty, roaring for tigers/lions

Words he can say (or at least mimic): Bye-Bye, Bath , Mama, Dada, Num-nums (eating), cup, Nana, Night-night

Standing unassisted but still too timid to take steps on his own (which is funny because he has absolutely no fear when it comes to climbing up onto things or crawling off beds, couches etc)

Throwing mini tantrums when he doesn’t get his way (laying down and crying)

Fake Crying

Using a spoon to pick up food (getting it to his mouth is a different story)

I can’t wait to see what he does today!!

Birthday Party Picture Overload

Last Sunday we had Tanner’s birthday party @ Maple Grove Community Center.  They have an indoor playground and a really nice indoor pool.   Tanner had a blast and was a VERY tired boy by the time it was all over.  Thank you, thank you , thank you to everyone who came and celebrated with our 1 year old!!  I apologize that these pics aren’t posted sooner.  Monday I had a birthday party hangover and then we have been busy moving to the lake!!  (As soon as I organize…I promise to take pictures of our bedroom re-dos)  For now, enjoy the pics of Tanner’s party.

Tanner turns 1

Tanner is officially a 1 year old!! *tear* Yesterday we celebrated at home which meant I got to spend the whole day with my favorite 1 year old.  It was actually really nothing extraordinary but a nice little quiet celebration.  His BIG party is this weekend at Maple Grove Community center where he will be able to play in the indoor playground and go swimming with his cousins and friends.  Here are some pictures I captured yesterday of my Tanner’s BIG day!!!


We had a FANCY dinner of Tanner’s favorite foods.  Cheddar Brats, Fruit, and chips!!!  Tanner’s great aunt Pam and great uncle Terry (who live across the road) came over to help celebrate.


Time to open presents!!!
