We made it people! A whole year with our precious son has been documented and a picture has been taken every month! This is where I am calling time on the updates with everything Nathanael, not only have I done a post every month since his birth, but I also documented my pregnancy from 16 weeks. Everything has a natural closure and I think for his privacy one year old is a good time to end the monthly updates.
I have enjoyed sharing with you all the developments our gorgeous son has gone through, from developing fingers and toes in the womb to now crawling and learning to stand.
Enjoy his final update! I still can’t believe he is one!
Weight: 19lbs 1oz
Length: 77 cm, 2 feet 6 inches can you believe that Nathanael is on the 75th centile for height!
Eating: 3 meals, two snacks and will happily smile in the presence of anyone consuming food in the hope they will share!
Sleeping: Nathanael is still sleeping through the night from 7pm till 7am.
Nappies: Still in size 4 nappies.
Clothes: Nathanael is in that awkward stage with some 9-12 month clothes being too small and most 12-18 month clothes too large. I am sure sooner rather than later he will have a growth spurt.
Things Nate likes to do:
This month for Nathanael hasn’t been as busy as his previous monthly update, however he still has learnt quite a few things. Nathanael has previously given “kisses” spontaneously usually for some random reason on my legs, however this month if I blow kisses in the air at him he has discovered that means I want a kiss and he will give me one soooo cute.
His favourite toys have included anything that he can sort, so stacking cups, bricks that can be stacked, shape sorters, you name it Nathanael organizes it! Its so lovely to watch the determination on his face as he places one thing on top of the other as well as the look of pride when he succeeds in his task!
We have seen glimpses of Nathanael attempting to stand independently he will usually let go of the sofa or table and quickly grab it back again so who knows perhaps next month we will see him walking on his own, he is still loving his push along walker so I know he will be thrilled when he can do it himself.
Nathanael when we think back on a year ago, waiting for your arrival and wondering what you would be like, nothing can match the incredible feeling it is to be your parents.
You have taught us so much, not only how fast we can run to escape from pee or how many hours you can last without sleep but about patience,joy,the happiness when you discover something new and the courage it takes to try it.
You are such a contented little man with an open smile to everyone and a relaxed attitude to life, you have such determination and courage when you step out to try something and a stubbornness to help you succeed.
We can honestly say that this year has been one of the best of our lives, we have loved watching you from newborn to infant and we are so excited as you enter this next stage of toddlerhood.
You are such a gift to us Nathanael James, Mummy and Daddy love you very much x x
