A Squirrel Named Kitty

I have been meaning to do this post for weeks!  I am trying to post less on Facebook and document more of Xander’s milestones and just day-to-day shenanigans in this blog.

Xander has been busy since his Birthday, growing and learning new things…

He has been asking to have a pop. And just trying to take one when we say no (OK not really, he just likes the shiny cans).Soda

He has learned to make loud noises on the kitchen floor with wooden spoons. And they aren’t too bad to chew on either.spoons

He has learned how to pull himself to stand in his crib (and elsewhere!)20130426_195600

Went with mom and dad to Culver’s, sat in a high chair and tried their yummy frozen custard!20130427_164023

Every time he hears the bathroom door open, he is right there to play with his ducks at the tub. The bathroom is his “happy place”.20130501_183410

Mom found a new way to get him to concentrate on eating his bottle by letting him hit it with balls while he eats. Dad figured out an even better way by putting videos of the show Super Why on his phone via YouTube!20130507_130444

He discovered a “walker” in the kitchen by using a kitchen chair.ChairWalker

He has a new lovey that has gotten way more kisses than I ever have!

He grew a lot since last Mother’s Day!

Xander likes to watch the wildlife outside on the deck. We get birds at the bird feeders and squirrels after the bird food, and the occasional cat.  After Xander saw the cat one day and heard dad calling it Kitty, he now calls all the small animals on the deck “Kitty” which is mostly squirrels.

Xander learned how to use the walker!

At Xander’s 12 month checkup we were told he has 6 teeth trying to come in on top, no wonder he is so ornery some days!

Trying some ice for 4 top teeth coming in!

Xander is behind in self feeding, so mom thought she would try putting food (other than Puffs) on his tray for him to test out.  It didn’t go very well the first time. Once he figured out it was food he wouldn’t touch them the rest of the time. We have found one thing since that he will feed himself, small pieces of bread!

Worried about what mom is trying to feed me! Who likes vegetables?

And Xander still thinks “Cup Head” is funny!
