Jake is one today!
I took him today for his one year check up and he is 50% for weight (23 lbs) and 90-95% for height (31.5”). He also has a cough which the doctor said was a respiratory virus from a cold. He has been given the green light to eat all the foods they say to stay away from before he turned one, so he can now have whole milk, chocolate, strawberries, nuts, peanut butter, etc. The only thing he can’t have is pure honey, but we never have that at home. We just need to watch him with each new food to make sure he doesn’t have an allergic reaction, but since the family doesn’t have strong food allergies he should be fine. We are also getting ready to turn his car seat around to forward facing. I’m sure he will love that!
Even though he wasn’t feeling the best with the cough he was in good spirits. We celebrated his birthday with a cookie. He will get a chocolate cupcake at his party on Saturday. Here are some pictures of Jake from each month:
