13 Months

My baby is 13 months today, on Elijah's birthday!!  Happy birthday, Elijah!

Oskar is a full fledged walker now.  He only crawls when he tries to run away from someone and falls down.  The walking came on so fast I didn't really have a chance to get him used to shoes so when we go to the park he wants to walk around but doesn't want to wear shoes.  So we're working on that.

He loves to create obstacle courses with the chairs even though he usually has a hard time completing them without hurting himself.

He has learned a few baby signs so far like more and milk and food.  I don't know very many signs myself so I need to learn some more and teach him.  He says Mama when he wants something.  Like right now he wants to sit on my lap and bang on the computer so he's saying Mama over and over.  He also says buh occasionally when prompted to say bye.  He understands what others say pretty well.  Whenever I ask him to get something like my keys or Richard (his lion) or a block or his book, he knows what I'm saying and will go get it.

He's got four teeth now, two on top and two on bottom, and two more are looking like they're making their way down on top.  We have Naya to thank for the latest front tooth.  Thanks Naya!!

Oskar is still slacking a lot in the food area.  Nothing has really changed since we started feeding him solid foods.  He will take one or two bites and then be done.  He still has milk all day long.  He doesn't throw up nearly as much anymore thankfully  Although when he gets any kind of sickness it does involve throwing up at least a couple times a day, but when he's not sick we don't really have to deal with it except for once or twice a week maybe, sometimes less.  We're going back to the specialist next week and I really hope she doesn't try to tell me that he still has reflux because I just don't believe it.  But I do hope she gives me some ideas on how to get him to eat more solid food.

My sweet Oskar is so fun, he is so smiley and laughs a lot and has TONS of energy.  I love him so much and I'm so glad I get to be his Mama!!

He is getting in to what is possibly the most fun stage of infancy! I love it when they toddle around and yell nonsense words.
