He said if Uma gets one, he gets one too.

Car? Walker.



He's gotten really good with it. He can steer, turn around, do all kinds of things. Good thing those are low traction wheels, because he usually pushes it sideways. Initially he didn't have enough control to push it from the back; it would roll away, and he'd lose his balance. Now he can do it any which way (but usually sideways).

13 months and 750 posts

Well, it was 13 months yesterday, and 750 posts today. Close enough.

Face first was his idea.

Actually, he didn't try to eat any rocks this time. Sticks and an acorn, sure, but no stones.

Stand in the place where you stand

Kieran was able to stand unassisted today. He was stable and did it for up to 10 seconds before he got back down. He didn't fall, though. He tried a few steps, but was completely unstable, toppling over after just one or two.

A standup little guy

Kieran seems to know to stand up when I say "stand up" at the end of his bath. I don't know if he gets "sit down" yet.


Half-Indian giver

Kieran's at the age where he likes giving you things, and then taking them back. Or you could give them back, I suppose.

Bye bye baby boy

Both this morning when I was leaving for work and this evening as he was going to bed, Kieran repeated my "bye bye" back to me. Mostly he said "bah bah" but at least one time it really sounded like "bye."

12-month checkup

We took Kieran in for his 1-year appointment. This time we made it before too much time had passed. The numbers were normal. He's up to 22 lbs, which is 30th percentile. His head circumference is 47.5 cm, a healthy 75th percentile. Length came in at 30", which is only 45th percentile, but I think he was a little squirmy on the table, and I suspect the measurement was less than precise. He also got triple needles, which he did not like one bit, but he recovered quickly. The cough he's had for the last week continues to nag at him. He's not actually sick; he just doesn't know how to fully clear his airway, so he keeps coughing up (but not all the way up) the same junk. There was nothing remarkable; it was all routine, just the way we want it.
