Preston - the past 7 months

I started out strong - posting every month or so and then nothing.  So, here's a catch up post - Preston is now 14 1/2 months old.  I can't believe how fast the time is going.  At his 1 year checkup he 29 3/4 inches 17 lbs 3 oz. He started walking about a month ago.  It's nice to have him on his feet.  He walked on his knees for at least 2 months before that.  It was funny to see him on his knees all the time.  He is into everything. He can open doors already, so you never know where you'll find him.  He loves to play in the bathroom or his brothers' room.  He loves to go upstairs and hide.  He loves to play with the phone. He loves to get into everything!  He is a master of destruction and quite mischievious.  He loves to climb under and through things.  He loves to put things in his mouth and crawl around like a dog.  He still doesn't talk much.  He doesn't even say mama or dada.  The only things he says are more and bye-bye.  But he babbles all the time.  He's as cute as can be. 

Preston is our big kid.  Here are his stats along with Elliott's and Derek's at 1 year for comparison.
Elliott 29 3/4 inches, 17 lbs 3 oz
Derek 29 inches, 18 lbs 3 oz
Preston 31 1/2 inches, 21 lbs 9 oz - he's in the 95th percentile for height and 50th for weight

While Preston was well over 20 lbs at 1 year, Derek was just shy of 20 at 15 months and Elliott still hadn't hit 20 at 18 months.  Preston currently weighs more than Elliott at 2 years old.  Crazy!  He's giving me some good arms.  :)

stair blockade - for a long time we kept trying to find ways to keep Preston off the stairs (before he mastered coming down).  One day he finally showed us that he could get past anything we put in his way with a little determination and tears.
1st haircut, just before his birthday
