Malachi - 1!

Our sweet, big bundle of love is ONE!

He's still going strong in the 90th percentile for height and weight at almost 25 lbs. and 31".

He's started walking.  WALKING.  Just 1-2 steps at a time, but I give it a week before he takes off.

Talking is his other strong suit.  He will even copy two word phrases, say "poopy" when he needs a diaper change, and "snack" when he's hungry.   Most his chatter during the day is babble though with "tucka-tucka" being his favorite phrase.

He's in 18-24 month clothes and moving up to size 5 diapers.

He takes one 3 hour nap a day and sleeps 11-12 hours straight a night.  Glory be.

We are trying to wean him off the bottle, but he doesn't agree with this plan.  He likes to pound a 10 oz. bottle several times a day on top of eating most everything we eat.  His favorites are peas, beans, scrambled eggs, chicken, and carrots.
