Jack's 1 year checkup

Jack had his 1 year doctor's appointment yesterday. He did great. He weighed 23 lbs and was 30 inches long. He is in the 50% meaning that he is average. I was a little disappointed because Brandon and I thought that he was at least 25 pounds and taller than 30 inches. I guess the walking slims them down. Dr. Dudgeon said that everything looked great and that he was really impressed with how well he is walking since he has only been doing it for a week. He is getting his molars, so we do have a bit of a runny nose, but other than that he was good.



On another note, Jack is so proud of himself for walking. We spend a good 30 minutes every afternoon while waiting on Brandon to come home, pushing the lawn mower around the house. Everytime it hits a wall he thinks that it is the funniest thing he has ever seen. He is getting better at the walking thing everyday.



Here is a video of Jack that I took yesterday. He likes to take Bella's "monkey" from her. She could care less, but as you can see now that he can walk he likes to follow her around and tease her. Enjoy!

I love his red sandals, I'm so jealous, they wouldn't fit on Charlie's foot. Enjoy the fact that he can wear fun shoes! I will have to live vicariously through Jack!
