Calum: 12 Months

Happy Birthday Calum Brooks!!! 

How can it be that you are already a year old?! I remember this day last year like it was yesterday. 

March 12, 1014
7 lb 7 oz
20 Inches 
Born: 5:09 am

Calum, you weigh 19 pounds and 8 oz (5%) and you are 29 1/4 inches tall (24%). You wear size 12 month clothes and a size 3 shoe and 3 diaper. 

You are still nursing 3-4 times a day. You eat almost anything we place in front of you. You can EAT! Your favorites are oranges, bananas, yogurt and sweet potatoes. 

You are a great sleeper. On most nights, you are in bed by 6:00 pm and you wake around 7:00 am. You take two naps a day that range from 1 1/2-2 hours. 

You have 6 teeth! Four on top and two on bottom. 

You have really started to talk this month. You can say "Momma", "dada", "Aya" (Ava), "Ah Duh" (all done), "Hi", "Bye bye". 

You can walk along furniture and with us holding your hands but you don't seem interested to do it alone yet. 

You love balls and cars and pretty much anything that is boyish. 

Calum Brooks, we love you so so much and we are SO very thankful for you. Today has been so emotional for me. I just do NOT want you to grow up. I want you to stay my little baby forever. You are the best thing that has happened to our family and we can't wait to spend many more birthdays with you! We love you Cal Brooksy.

You can say "Dada", "Momma", "Bye bye ", "Hi", "Aya" (Ava), and "Ah Duh" (All done).

You are a snuggle bug and I love it!

You eat everything we put in front of you! You are a huge eater! One night, you ate 1.5 adult size pieces of pizza! Lord knows how much you will eat when you are 15!

You can walk across furniture but it may be a few months before you start walking independently.

You are into everything...especially things you're not supposed to be in like the cabinets and toilet paper! You're a little adventurous guy!

Cal Brooksy, we love you SO SO much and can't imagine our lives without you. You bring so much joy and light to our family. Happy 11 months sweet boy!

Calum: 10 Months!

10 Months! How can it be?? 

You wear size 12 month clothes and size 3 diaper. You take two naps a day at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. You go to bed around 7:00 pm and wake around 7:00 am.

You are an EATER!! You have really branched out this month and have started eating meats that I cut up really small. Your favorite is Italian sausage. You love any kind of cracker and you love sweet potatoes. You don't like for me to feed you anymore. You have become very independent and want to feed yourself.

You get SO mad when Ava takes a toy from you. You will scream at her and she thinks its hilarious. We're working on her sharing skills...

You have really started to babble in the past few days. You say "bubba", "dada", "ball", and "bye bye". SO cute!!

You are the BEST baby!

Calum Brooks, we love you SO SO much and can't imagine our lives without you. You brighten our lives and we can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for your life. We love you bubba.
