Monday night we took a break from playing ball to eat some cake. We had eaten all the cake except for the last of Eli's little smash cake so I decided to sit in the floor with Eli and share the last of his cake before it spoiled. I was sitting in the floor by the coffee table with the cake on the table taking a bite and feeding Eli a bite off my fork. After a couple of bites Eli decided that I was taking too long and dove in to get a big handful of icing. He stuffed that in his mouth then kept going for a minute or two until ther was pretty much nothing left.
Before I knew it, Eli had cake all over both of us, the carpet, and the coffee table. Brian wasn't home so I was on my own. While I was trying to get up off the floor (at 6 months pregnant it takes me a minute) Eli took off almost running toward the kitchen and under the dining room table. He proceeded to play under the table while I tried to coax him out (not like I could get under there and follow him).
Brian got home a few minutes later and Eli went running to him. Within a few minutes I had Eli in the bathtub and Brian was trying to clean up the cake. The tally was cake on the coffee table, the carpet, the couch, and 3 out of 6 dining room chairs, not to mention me and him. So a week late, Eli finally decided that it was time to get into the cake.
|Hehehehe... I always wanted to play in the cake but I wanted to wait until you weren't expecting it and I could get it all over the house!|
|Come here, Mama. Give me a hug!|
So after our fun Monday night cake session, we had a pretty good night. Eli slept through the night and woke up ready to eat and play. Yesterday afternoon I took him to the doctor for his 12 month checkup. His 12 month stats are as follows:
Weight - 25 lbs - 10 oz (75th Percentile) A big boy but we just started walking all the time
Height - 30 in (50th Percentile) Right at average height.
Head Circumference - 48 cm (90th Percentile) So he still has a big 'ole gord noggin!
For the most part he had a good report... all healthy and meeting his developmental milestones. He got 2 shots and needs 2 more in a month. The only thing of concern was his ears. Eli still has a little irritation in his right ear. We aren't sure right now if it is just the last of that ear infection that is still clearing up or if it is something more. So when we go back in a month the doctor will look at his ears again. If there is still fluid or irritation, we may need to go talk to an ENT. Right now we'll hope that things clear up on their own and be thankful for an overall good report.
Now, on to this week's pictures...
