Well he actually had a Dr appointment January 7th. He was 24lbs 15 ounces, which is the 75% same as always. Hayes was 32 1/2" tall which is over 95% still right on the huge track and his head was 48cm which is 85%.
Well lets see, Hayes got his eighth tooth the end of November and now is trying to cut some molars.
Hayes is into everything, I swear that kid has radar or sonar or something because he knows when any door is open even a crack and makes a bee line for it. He has had his fingers smashed a few times because he is right on our heels when we are closing the door and he is trying to shove his way through.
Hayes spends most of his days literally running through the house yelling. He thinks it is so fun to run from one end of the house to the other yelling and making funny faces. He is so silly!
Hayes can pretty much understand and follow any directions we give him. He will go find his doggy, check on the doggies out the sliding glass door, get a book, get his bottle. He will also point to his nose, eyes, ears and mouth if you ask him.
He will walk to his high chair and stand with his arms up yelling when he is hungry.
Hayes actually enjoys playing by himself in his room quite often. He will go in and close the door behind him and just play, if you try to open the door back up he just runs over to it and slams in on you. When he is ready to come out he just starts yelling. haha
Hayes is very attached to his stuffed doggie. It was actually the first present he ever got. As soon as we found out we were having a boy the wife of a guy from work brought Hayes in a cute little outfit and this stuffed dog. Somehow along the way Hayes has fallen in love with his doggie.
We are working on disciplining Hayes. He is kind of turning into a wild child. He listens pretty good, but you can tell when he starts to get tired, because he just does what he wants or does things that he knows he should not do.For instance he will start throwing things over the baby gate so they fall down the stairs, or messing with the TV and the surround sound or standing on the base board heat and looking out the window.
Hayes still sleeps quite a bit, on the weekends he usually sleeps 14 hours at night and then takes 2 naps that range from 1-2 hours.
Hayes loves to read, if you are sitting on the couch he will always bring a book and throw it on your lap and then raise up his arms and grunt until you pick him up. Then he snuggles in and wants you to read. You have to be fast though, because he loves turning the pages and could care less if you are done with that page or not.
|Hayes's favorite book right now, thanks Grandma!|
Hayes is really get to a fun age though. He loves going outside and exploring. Everywhere we go, he wants down so he can run. Haha this mama is hoping that he slows down a little at some point!
Words: Hayes can say mama (which can be either me or grandma) daddeee, Ma'am (that's what he calls me when he is upset) he also says something that sounds like tadee which is when he is pointing to a baby. He is constantly jabbering we just can't understand most of it yet.
