We went to the doctor today. He did a pretty good job, only crying for the shots. He weighted 20 pounds (28% ) was 29 inches long (30%) and his head was in the 95%. The doctor says that he is smaller than the other kids but since he is developing and healthy he isn't concerned. I knew before going in he was a little guy! It will be interesting watching him grow, will he develop into a build similar to the other kids or not? It's fun seeing their similarities and differences.

We got home and he took a great nap. No one else took a great nap, they kept coming down asking if Gideon was awake yet.
We ate a dinner of pasta, jello and corn (all Giddy favorites).
We took our full bellies outside and played on the yard (another Giddy favorite).

He has the cutest little toothy grin. He squishes his little face up all cute and it makes all of us smile.
His favorite sound is "Ah" but he can make lots of sounds. His only real words are the start of uh-oh when he drops something and the "m" sound when he wants more. Listening to him babble I am sure words will be coming anytime.
He loves it when his siblings play with him. Adele is always caring him around and saying "Mom, I'm going to watch him right now".
He loves the stroller and the carrier still.
He LOVES this little white angel bear that was Tyler's. If we hand it to him then put him to bed he doesn't cry at all.
He has lots of nicknames already- Gid, Giddy, Goob, Goober, Giddy goo, cutie pie, Stinker.
He loves being outside. If he is fussy we just take him out and he is all smiles.
He likes to eat but doesn't always chew things as well as he should. It makes me a little nervous and I end up still giving him tiny pieces of everything. He has not mastered the spoon and fork at all. He lets us know he is done by chucking (serious it goes far) his food on the floor. Around his chair is always messy no matter how much we clean it.
He loves climbing around on people, being wrestled and tickled. He laughs in anticipation of rough play.
He is spoiled with love and even though I worry that his experience is so different than some of the older kids I think it's been a good first year. He doesn't get as much one on one from me but he is surrounded by love. I see it everyday, all around him.

The other night we put Gideon in the baby walker. He held his feet up for hours so the grass didn't touch them. Spencer started the fire for tin foil dinners all by himself. I was so proud!
