12 months old

Lucas had a fun time playing at the doctor's office today. He really loves looking at himself. Here are his stats:

Weight: 17lbs 15oz---------1% He is almost to 18lbs!

Height: 29.5inches---------41%

Head Circ: 17 1/4inches----12-13%

He is still a little guy, but still on the scale and growing at the same rate. He sounded and looked healthy. We are happy that this whole year he has only needed to go to the doctor for his wellness checks (knock on wood). He has only had a little cold, but other than that not sick (knock on wood again). We have been blessed. He had to get 4 shots and he did not like that one bit. He was trying to kick the nurse and get away from her. He calmed down pretty quickly and then we came home and he immediately fell asleep. I hope he doesn't feel sad when he wakes up.

He is cruising around holding onto things, but hasn't yet tried to take steps. He doesn't stand for very long without holding onto something, but I am sure that in no time he will be walking. We are still trying to teach him how to go down the stairs backwards. He still tries to get into everything. I put some child proof locks on some of the cabinets and he is so mad that he can't open them. He has been flexing his muscles and he squeezes his hands and his neck gets all tense. It is really funny. He is a sweet boy who loves cuddling with his stuffed animals especially his yellow ducky and yellow lamb. He sleeps well, eats a ton, and is a happy little guy.
This is the best picture of the flexing that we have so far, but I don't feel like it does it justice.

He saw his ducky's twin at Target and had to cuddle it.
