Bronson at 13 months: January 2009

Bronson is now 13 months old. He spent his little day in the doctor's office trying to figure out what is wrong with him. I never hesitate to take him to the doctor's if he is not feeling well. I was just sure that he had an ear infection, but to our dismay he has his first real live COLD. Yes, I think I have complained about him having the sniffles before, but this is a big one. It sucks!!! I haven't been this sleep deprived since he was born. My whole body aches for sleep. I am going to be taking my MIL up on her offer to hold him Saturday night so that I can sleep. She loves him so much and I don't doubt that he will be getting some rest in her arms, while I get some rest in a big comfy bed.

Well, I am no longer sending out emails with Bronson's stats, so I will now be giving his monthly stats on this blog. I have to admit this month has seen some great strides in development and it seems that he is becoming such a big boy all of the sudden. With his big boy personality has come some major tantrums. His always easy going personality is going out the window, he is getting quite demanding and at times a little naughty. Yes, a baby can be naughty especially when he wants something that he can't have. Hence, example #1 and #2 on my kitchen counter: two broken candlesticks courtesy of Bronson William Deets and yes, I did use his full name when he broke the second one. I wasn't mad at him, but I really wish he would leave stuff alone. My house looks so bare because I had to totally babyproof aka toddler proof.

Here are his updates:

  • Weighs 19 pounds, 6 ounces

  • Height 27 3/4 inches long

  • New favorite word MAMA (I love it)

  • Favorite food: crackers

  • Learned how to crawl and walk all in the same day

  • Cruises by holding wall with one hand and then letting go to get to bigger and better things

  • Is obsessed with electronics and knows how to use the remote

  • Now requires us to pull him on blanket to put him to sleep

  • Favorite Person: Daddy

I hope that you enjoy the video, pardon the background noise. We were watching a movie that I would not recommend, the language was horrible!!!!

You're so sweet. Thanks for the comment. I usually don't comment on anything because I read it all through google reader, so I never open up the actual blogs. But I also love reading yours. Bronson seems like such a sweet happy little guy. I hope that you've both been able to catch a little more sleep since your last post. We are in the same boat down here - a really nasty cold and very little sleep. We will definitely have to do another play date next time I make it up to Oregon though. I'd love to see you guys again. We don't have any trips planned for this year - we'll be seeing my family in Utah and Washington. But I'll definitely let you know next time we start planning something.
