* Baker weighs 18 lbs 1 oz (3rd percentile), and is 29 1/4 inches tall (25th percentile).
* He wears size 6-9/6-12/9/12 month clothes, and he wears one size cloth diapers and size 3/4 disposable diapers.
*He's an excellent napper and night time sleeper. He takes a short nap in the morning, and all the boys sleep at the same time in afternoon. He usually goes down for the night around 7:30, and wakes up around 6:30-7:30. He does still occasionally wake up once during the night.
*He loves to climb up the stairs or into the fireplace. He also enjoys climbing into his walker and getting stuck
* He's a great nurser and he loves it!
*He is rotten to the core. He is so spoiled by me! He fusses as soon as he sees me and generally doesn't want anyone else to do anything with him .
*He loves to clap, wave, and point at everything.
*Food:he loves all fruit, but pears are his favorite still. He enjoys peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, turkey, yogurt...he'll eat almost anything!
*He is walking! He's still pretty wobbly, but is getting better at moving around. He still prefers to crawl because it's faster.
*He has 8 teeth-4 on top and 4 on bottom.
*He says "mama", "dada", and "byebye" ("dyedye"), and "na-na", which I think is like "no no". He also says something that sounds like "YaYa" and he makes tons of noises and sounds.
*He is so rotten! He loves to be held and lets you know (very loudly) that he doesn't like it when he gets put down.
* The older boys are still madly in love with him!
* I can't believe that he's already a year old! This past year has flown by, and we've enjoyed every minute of it (mostly). I can't imagine our lives without this sweet little boy, and I am so thankful that God chose to bless us with him!* Nicknames: Baker Baby, Bubby, Baby, Baker Boo Bear

Weird title, but oh well! Pictures from the rest of our week...
This boy. Since we've moved, and haven't finished all of our renovations, our trash can is now easily accessible for those who care. Well, this little boy cares! I have to redirect him away from it multiple times a day. I found him eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and dumping my diet coke remains on the floor. Oh well!
We made it to the new Krispy Kreme this week. The boys were so excited! It was rather crowded and they didn't have high chairs, which makes things a little difficult. Baker doesn't eat donuts yet, so I got to hold him and eat mine at this same time. But, we made it!

We made a trip to the zoo on Tuesday morning with our favorite cousins. The weather was perfect and it wasn't crowded at all! The animals were all out-probably because it wasn't as hot as the surface of the sun!

|Baker's grin! I pulled out my phone to take their picture and he gave me the biggest cheese ever|
|we touched a snake !|
|LeLe the panda|
|we splurged and rode the carousel|
|he wasn't too sure about his ride|
|as good as a picture gets!|
|the grizzly bear was the most active we've ever seen! He was right up against the glass the whole time we were there|
|the boys loved it!|

|Our family photo on Labor Day! We're missing Uncle Gary, because he had to work. Next year we'll have two more babies in this picture!! My sister Jamie is having a little girl in December, and my brother Jacob and his wife are expecting in February.|
|This boy is into climbing all the things. I can't leave him alone for a minute, not that he lets me out of his sight anyways!|
|Wednesday morning picture before school!|
We went to the dentist on Thursday. The boys were so excited to go and get their new toothbrushes! Fisher got xrays for the first time and did so well. I was so proud of both of them for doing what needed to be done and actually enjoying it. And the best part? No cavities!

|counting his teeth|
|letting Dr. Chuck check him out|
|He told the hygienist that he already knew how many teeth he had-ha|
|Dr. Chuck said his bottom teeth are getting loose (I can't tell). I'm not ready for him to be big enough to lose teeth, even though he'll be adorable.|

Last week I took Baker to the doctor for his 12 month check up. Just like I figured, he's tiny but healthy. He weighed 18 lbs 1 oz, which is barely in the third percentile. He's dropped from the 10th to the 3rd percentile, but he's been so active lately that I'm not really worried about it. And, he nurses and eats all the time, so I think he's just small but mighty! He was 29.25 inches tall, which is in the 25-50th percentile, and his head circumference stayed in the 50th percentile at 18.5 inches.
|no screaming while getting weighed! huge progress y'all!!|
|letting Ms. Iola see how long he is|

The boys are loving preschool! They go three half days, so I pick them up right before lunch. They've really adjusted well and are still excited about going-we'll see how long that lasts!
|S was sick, so he didn't get to go the first Monday, but he still took a picture for me|
|he's ready to go!|
|we do car line drop off in the morning, which I was hesitant about, but the boys have done great!|
|working on "homework". No, they're not actually assigned any, but we do worksheets at home and they seem to enjoy it|
|he's ready! He had a great first day-no tears!|
|Friday morning with all the boys!|
|and then I got to hang out with these two sleepy heads for the rest of the morning ha|
