While Spencer and I were at Target yesterday, we passed a little girl about 4 years old. She was smiling at Spencer and told her mom how cute he was. Then she made the statement of the year, pretty much stating the obvious, "Mom, look at that baby. I mean (as she quieted her voice to a whisper) look at the GROWN-UP baby."
haha. Yup. He looks like grown up doesn't he.
It was pointed out to me that I forgot Spencer's recent 12 month stats. We just had him measured and weighed at the doctor's office. Here they are:
Height: 32.5 inches (over the 100th percentile)
Weight: 26.6 pounds (95th percentile)
Biggest Growing Pain Right Now: Cutting 6 teeth, including his molars and canines. (He's been doing this for about a month. It's only recently that it's actually bothering him a lot. He's non-stop crying and chewing on things, including his mommy's shoulder.)
Current Medical Prognosis: To be referred to an eye doctor so they can try probing the tear duct to pop out whatever is clogging it. If that doesn't work, they may need to do surgery to place a small shunt to keep it drained.
Favorite Pasttime: Playing with his new Thomas pop-up toy (thanks Brenna!) and swimming/climbing in his new pool. (Sorry California peeps. He's not playing with the toys you gave him. I had to leave them in California. No room in my baggage for the plane. No worries. Mom's bringing them to Utah where we'll meet up). Oh, and climbing up on everything, including over mom's shoulder, up the couch and over the piano bench.
K. Well that's it! We're all sickies in this house. Brian's got what I call a "Jet Lag Headache" (he gets them almost every time he comes back from a trip), Spencer's doing his teething thing, and I've got a bad head cold. Hopefully it goes away by Thursday when we leave again on a trip...this time to Utah.
