Growth Tracker: 12 months

We got smiles and clapping from Emmett the next time we gave him cake. (That’s the way I feel too, Buddy)

It is truly amazing how fast a year has gone by. The changes in Emmett are amazing too! These little humans are a miracle.

Stats: 16 lbs. 13 oz. (0 percentile) 29 1/4 inches long (31 percentile) Head circ. 18.5 inches (68 percentile)

Our doctor says getting him to gain any weight will be hard because he’s such a busy body. No worries though, just keep his car seat rear-facing. At the rate he’s going, I figure he’ll be about 2 by the time he’s 20 pounds. Really, he only gained 1 pound in 3 months, so to gain 4 more pounds-12 months!

    That is avrie! She is still rear facing. She was 17 pounds at her 12 month and was gaining an average of 1 pound every three months. She is now 19 pounds at 14 months, so you can see it changes, meaning thats a pound a month. My doctor said to help them gain weight, go to whole milk and quit breastfeeding completely. He said my milk was more like the consistency of juice and it probably wasn’t doing her any good anymore, which by her sudden normal weight gain, I am guessing was the case too. Also, pedisure helps! Good luck! He is so cute! and Happy birthday Emmett!
