12 month Well Baby

About 2 weeks ago I took Isaac to his well baby visit and I thought I would update everyone. He is doing great! He weighs 20 lbs 2 oz and is 29 1/2 in long. His weight for age is between 10-25th percentile (which dropped from last time) and his weight for length is between 25-50th percentile (which is the same as it has been). His length for age is also between 25-50th percentile. So it appears that he is small for his age (which I always thought) but when comparing his length to his weight, it's not too little. He eats everything so not sure why he's little but he is =). Developmental wise he is doing great. To update everyone, he is walking really well but still can't get up on his own...he uses something to stand up and is taking a lot of steps until he squats down to pick something up. haha. I've also been trying to get him off the bottle. He hasn't had one in 2 days and he's doing great! For awhile he would only take those Nuby cups (that I hate because they leak!) but this morning he took another sippy cup that he didn't before.
As I said before, he eats a lot. He's eating most "regular" foods...but still no unecessary stuff (NO fries, fried stuff, candy, coke, etc.) Not budging =).

They did do bloodwork and apparently he is a little anemic. Nothing that can't be fixed. And we still have to go back to get his immunizations. I forgot his records so the only thing he got was his flu shot. He handled it well, but I didn't.

I'm so proud of my little man and everything that he does. I thank God everyday for Isaac and for keeping him healthy.

Isaac's Birthday Party!

We had Isaac's birthday party at Tat and Omi's house. It was a lot of fun...we had a cowboy theme, a pinata, and a space walk. We also had a beautiful cake! isaac had one of his own, but he had no idea what to do with it. I have taught him well =)

Thank you so much to Omi and Tat for having the party at the house, to everyone who made food and helped us buy decorations, to anyone who helped out at the party by cooking and whatnot, to Tio Ruben for letting us use the space walk, and to Jenny for the cake. And of course, thank you everyone for making Isaac feel so special and for loving him so much. We truly are blessed. This has been such an amazing year with my little man.

Prayer Request

Tat is having surgery today on his back...please keep him in your prayers!

Update 10/10: Tat is doing great! They weren't expecting him to start walking until Tuesday but he did a little bit today. He's in some pain but that's to be expected.

Fall is here!

Holly works at The Garden Center in Lafayette and they just put out all their fall stuff. It looks gorgeous! So we decided to take Isaac there for pictures. I think they came out great! He was well behaved and cooperated with us...until he found the straw =)
