13 Months

Happy 13 months to Isaac!

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I've missed a lot of his growing up this month. He's been spending good portions of nearly every day with Grandma as we work on getting Blake's business up and running.

I can say that I've noticed the big steps he has made this month - I just missed out on the process. :(

1. He's running
2. Understanding more Chinese than Mommy now
3. Saying four official words: Mama, Dada, Uh oh, Wow
4. Nodding his head appropriately when asked questions. It has come in handy especially for determining whether or not he is ready for his nap.
5. Tugs on my arm, brings me a diaper, or sniffs whenever he has pooped. When he does the arm tug, he's about ready to poop, so we try to get him to the toilet before it happens. He also only does the arm tug at home, so we haven't gotten much practice in.
6. Officially has 8 teeth now. Two of his molars FINALLY poked through, thank the Good Lord!
7. Makes many sounds: Moo for cows, vroom sounds for anything with an engine, sort of a putter sound for a horse {you know, what they do after the neigh?}, ooh ooh ah ah for a monkey.
8. Understands and carries out simple tasks, like pointing out pictures in his picture books, identifying pictures of family members, finding toys we ask him to find, bringing us things, throwing things in the garbage can
9. Knows that going outside means he needs to put on his coat and shoes - so he brings them to you if the word "outside" is mentioned.


I'm just so amazed at how much he can comprehend already. It's hard to believe that one year ago, I was still just trying to figure out this newborn, who by the way, is still more cute than ever!

Anyone else think it's weird that Isaac's sock monkey has the same face as his butt?
