Ethan is One!

17 Jan

This morning around 6:30am, Ethan’s photo made its first TV appearance on NBC 5 Chicago.

Check out the youtube link here –>!

He slept through it, so when he woke up, we played it for him! We cannot believe how much our little man has grown this past year. Take a look at the obligatory side-by-side comparison!

We went to the pediatrician for his check up and he weighed in at 22 pounds,. 12.4 oz (51st percentile), is 30 inches long (59th percentile) and his head is 18 3/4 (69th percentile)! They say that a child should triple their birth weight by the time they are 1 year old, and Ethan is about a tenth of a percent shy of that, so he is right on track! The doctor was impressed with him overall! Ethan showed off his walking skills for her and she said he has great balance for a babe his age! He did great at the doctor, until the nurse came in to give him 3 shots — he was not a fan!

Ben and I bought Ethan a Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Learning Home and he played with it today for hours! He is a big fan!

When Ethan woke up from his afternoon nap, he was surprised by Aunties Tina, Libby and Caroline, Cousins Lila and Marco, Mimi, Pop Pop and Uncle Mike. We had a nice dinner and Ethan had his first cake from our favorite bakery, Three Tarts Bakery– banana with dark chocolate ganache filling and a buttercream frosting. He didn’t really want to try it…and preferred the blueberries.

We are so proud of our one year old munchkin!
