12 months old!

Meredith, you are 12 months old! And you so did not want to take any pictures to document that fact!


  • Weight: TBD (doctor’s appointment is next week)
  • Height: TBD
  • Head Circ: TBD
  • Clothing: 9-12 mo, 12 mo, 12-18 mo
  • Shoes: size 3
  • Diapers: size 3 or 4


  • The biggest news, of course, is that Meredith is walking! she took her first steps on March 17, and I’d say she walks about 50% of the time now. And she is so proud of herself – she giggles and smiles as she walks. Super cute.
  • She has 6 teeth - 4 on top and the 2 bottom middle.
  • Just for documentation sake, I will say now that she’s been clapping and pointing probably since she was 10 months old.
  • In the past week, Meredith turned from baby to toddler. By that I mean, she is toddling over to what she wants and she wants it right now, and yes, she will stiffen and slide to the floor and throw a tantrum if she doesn’t get it. Oh boy. She may not be really verbal, but she is great at pointing and showing what she wants or what she’s thinking about.
  • She has her own little babble language – lots of “doodoodoodada", but many other sounds can be heard too. She will try to imitate words, but I wouldn’t say she’s consistent with much right now (except perhaps the aforementioned Kitty and Dog).
  • Is now eating 100% table food, and has eaten all of the 1-year-old foods – strawberries, peanut butter, honey, eggs – with no problems. She is also drinking whole milk.
  • Still taking 2 naps per day, at 9:30 and 1, and sleeping 7:30 pm – 7 am.


Russell at 12 months and Meredith at 12 months – I think they really look different.


Happy one year, Meredith – but no matter how old you are, you and your brother will always be my babies Smile
