A Slice of Bryce (#22): Thirteen Months!!!

It's just crazy to me how fast time flies, particularly after a baby hits that ONE YEAR OLD milestone!  I blinked, and I now have a 13-month old!

So on the eve of his 13-month birthday, I thought I better get the blog up-to-date with his latest measurements:

Height:  30 3/4 inches (75th percentile)
Weight:  23 pounds, 7 ounces (65th percentile)
Head Circumference:  47.5 centimeters (75th percentile)

And, as I like to do for comparison's sake, here are Ivie and Macie's measurements at 1 year:

Ivie

Height:  29 inches
Weight: 20 pounds, 11 ounces
Head: 46 1/4 centimeters

Macie

Height:  29 1/4 inches
Weight: 21 pounds, 8 ounce
Head: 47 centimeters

So, in summary, it appears as though as I move from one baby to the next, they get taller, heavier, and have bigger heads!

In other BIG news, though he took a bit longer than the girls, Bryce is officially up and walking!  He started taking a few steps here and there a couple of weeks ago, but this past Friday (May 18th), it's like he finally decided that it was time to go "all in".

I think you'll be able to see in the below video what I mean.  He went from 2-3 steps to walking all over the place!  I love this stage, where they are waddling back and forth, so proud of their accomplishment, but yet still a bit unsure with the footing.  Before I know it, he'll be running around, so I will relish this stage for a bit!

A Playground in Boone

Last Saturday (May 12th), we traveled to Boone to visit Dale's brother's family and watch cousin Rod play baseball.  The ballpark happened to be right across the street from a GREAT playground that instantly won over all 3 of the kids!  It was breezy and slightly overcast, so I took advantage of the perfect conditions for pictures and snapped away while the kids played.  I even got some shots documenting a few of Bryce's first steps!
