Wilson -- 13 months

The month of September flew by in such a flash. I'm several days late on this because I didn't realize we are already well into the month of October. Slow down, time!

- Wilson weighed 25 pounds and 8 ounces at the doctor's office. He is 33 (!!!) inches tall, which means he is a freakishly tall 13 month old. I think he has a long torso and his legs from his knees to ankles are quite long. 

- He is wearing 2t shirts and 18 month pants. 

- He eats 3 meals plus a snack every day. He is down to a cup of milk just twice a day. 

- He goes to bed around 9 and wakes up between 8:30 and 10. He wakes up at a different time every day. He takes one nap from 12:30 to 3:30ish. 

- Wilson got sick for the first time this month. It sucked. 

- He still isn't saying words but he is babbling lots and the babbling is sounding closer to words. 

- He now grabs my hand or shirt and guides me to what he wants me to do. 

- He uses a fork when he eats now. He isn't particularly good at getting things onto his fork, but he does well getting it into his mouth. He loves using it. 

- Likes: Blues Clues, animals, eating, outside, books

- Dislikes: diaper changes, being told no,

The most magical weekend

I used to write coherent, themed, intelligent posts about semi-intresting things. One of these days, I'm going to get back to that. Today is not that day. 

Wilson finally got over his virus. He is back to his happy, sweet, on the go self. 

Caleb and I spent our weekend in Louisville at our friends' wedding. It was a beautiful wedding and an amazing reception. There was an open bar and I took a little too much advantage of it. Regardless, it was such fun. 

Sunday, we spent the day in Starkville. We walked around campus and ha lunch with my brother. I adore college campuses. 

Speaking of college, Mississippi had an amazing weekend of football. I seriously cried when I saw the ole miss score. It is JUST football, but I am so glad Mississippi is getting so much positive national press. Saturday was an amazing, magical, special day.
