Amos’ First Birthday

Untitled from Beth Morgan on Vimeo.

What an adventurous year it has been.  This post is much delayed as we’ve (primarily Amos but when children are sick both mamas and papas must endure) been trying to heal from sickness.  A got three big vaccinations at his one year check up and came down with a cold two days later.  I’m not sure if this was a coincidence since I also got sick when I received the same hepatitis vaccine.  Amos measured 31 inches in height (85th percentile), 25 pounds 14 ounces in weight (95th percentile) and his head circumference measured a whopping 49 inches (98th percentile).  He grew two inches in one month.  I shouldn’t be surprised since Amos has always grown very quickly in comparison to the other children we know.  I do think that he has slowed in growing out of his clothing.
He’s teetering between the 18-24 month size and he’s been wearing them since right before Christmas.  Thank goodness.  I don’t want to forget some of the fun things Amos does so I’m making a list here:

This week he started hissing like a snake. (learned from the Where’s Spot book)
Pretends to jump
Loves to use tools to “fix” things
Can blow kisses
Gives kisses generously to papa
Has started to cover his ears while I run the vacuum
Begs for a bath if we mention it (eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, . . .)
Still appreciates a good snuggle with mama
Listens closely to my phone conversations to papa and nods or does whatever I’m talking about
Laughs on purpose because he’s done something silly and he knows it’s made me laugh
Goes to turn on the lights when I talk about it being too dark in the room
Takes my grocery list/pen and pretends to write on it while I’m shopping
Signs “no touch” with his hand when I ask him what mama says
