Grant: 12/13 Months *October 12, 2014*

'Tis the photography busy season again, and I've fallen behind on Grant's monthly much so that I'm having to combine his 12 and 13 months into one. Of course, these posts are mainly just to replace the baby book that I never filled out for him, so it's definitely a better-late-than-never type thing :)
Here's what you've been up to:

*You weigh 21.75 pounds.

*You are still wanting to take two naps per day, even though I'm trying to slowly get rid of the morning nap.  You are super cranky come 10:30am if you haven't napped.

*Bedtime is still around 7:30/8pm and you sleep until 8am most mornings; however, you will wake up some mornings wanting milk at 6:30am, but then you go right back to sleep.

*You are now WALKING! Yay! You started walking around the first week of October, and you are getting faster by the day.  You try to run, but aren't as coordinated yet, so you take lots of tumbles.  The only time falling makes you mad is if you are wearing socks or slippery pants and you can't get a good grip on the floor.

*You have 4 teeth, but that 5th one (top left) is about to pop through anyday.

*You are a wild man, and you are into EVERYTHING! We had to put cabinet locks everywhere, because you love to seek out the cleaners under the sinks.

*You aren't a huge eater. Your favorite foods are: blueberries, strawberries, grilled cheese, mac n cheese, chocolate, peaches, oranges, squeeze pouches,  granola and Nutragrain bars, and peanut butter crackers.  You still drink about 4/5 cups of milk out of a sippy (and sometimes a bottle, but not often anymore) per day.

*You love to climb through, over, and under objects.

*You get so mad now when your sisters take a toy away from you or get in your way of where you are trying to go.  You will scream at them, and they think it's hilarious.

*Speaking of screaming, you love to squeal in the middle of restaurants just for fun.  Lila loved to do that too.  It's happy squeals, but it's still very loud!

*You LOVE your school and your teachers, and they were so happy to watch you learn to walk.  We are blessed with a great school and teachers for you.

*Your hair is so blonde and so straight (just like mommy's), and it's starting to grow a little mullet.  You may get your first haircut well before the girls got theirs.

*You are such a sweet boy that loves the idea of cuddling, but doesn't want to sit still long enough to do it.  It makes for a frustrating evening where you wants in my lap and then down over and over again.

*Now that you're walking, you are much happier at home and don't have to be held all.the.time anymore.

*You are very serious, but you will smile when we fake sneeze or sing the ABCs to you.

*You love love love playing with balls: all kinds! You love big rubber balls, tennis balls, soccer balls, even pumpkins (that you call "ba").

*You say several words, but your favorite this month is definitely "ba" for ball.  You also love "uh-oh", "bu-bye", "momma", "dad" or "dadda", "hi", "hey", and "Lila".

*You bumps your head all the time, and you pretty much live with a goose egg on your head. (notice the red bump in the middle of your eyes in the photos)

You have changed so much in just the last few months, and you are just the cutest little thing! We love you baby Grant! (we are still enjoying wearing daddy's old outfits from when he was a baby! This sweet outfit was Josh's back in the early 80s!)
