Well everyone, we did it. We managed to keep our child alive for an entire year.
One year ago (on the 24th, I’m a slow blogger these days) we got this:
10lbs 12 oz, 23″ of long beanness, and a 38cm giant head
He was off the charts.
And now we have this:
22lbs 13.5 oz, 31″, and 46.5cm of a mullet covered head. That’s 51% weight, 83% height, and 54% for head. I think they measured the giant head wrong. We will remeasure ourselves later. [edit: we measured three more times. His head is most surely 49cm, moving his oversized noggin back to the 95+%. I mean come on, look at it. You can tell it’s ridiculous.]
There is really no way to say how much we love our child, and I’m sure you would get sick of us bragging in 2.3 seconds about how wonderful we think he is. I will just say that we are beyond blessed for our mischievous, happy, intelligent baby who we now call our big boy, as soon enough he won’t be the youngest. If you want to know what he is up to these days, you can click here. Or, you can look at how lovely his mullet is by clicking here. Or you can just look at the pictures that I will force upon you from the last month of his first year. Enjoy.
I forgot to add that he had a lovely party on his special day, in which he enjoyed the tradition of eating/destroying his own cake and opening far too many gifts from family and friends. If you want to see way too many pictures of him and cake and his future wife, you can click here.
