Liam at 13 Months

Liam Dayne
13 months old
15 lbs 10 oz
28 inches


Milestones:  It was a big month! Walking behind a walker, first tooth, pulling up to a stand in the bathtub, started speech therapy, and scooting around on his bum!


Tooth Count: THREE!  Liam cut his first tooth 2 days after he turned 13 months.  Two weeks later, his top molars came in!  I was shocked!  He's definitely teething out of order!


Eating:  3 meals a day plus snacks, drinking from a straw cup, and nursing twice a day. 


Favorite Foods:  Yogurt melts, mandarin oranges, yogurt, macaroni and cheese, pasta with marinara sauce, bananas, tapioca pudding, and Gerber Graduates Lil' Crunchies.


Sleeping:  Liam sleeps 12-13 hours a night, takes one long nap every day, and takes one short nap every day.  He tends to fall asleep in the Ergo or in the car.  He's a great sleeper!  I lay him down, say good night, and see him 12-13 hours later!


Sounds/Words:  Mama, Dada, Baba, NumNum, Ooo, Ahhh, and lots of growling and babbling. This little dude talks constantly!


Likes:  Eating, nursing, being carried in the Ergo, playing with his toys, ripping apart his foam play mat, standing, going for walks, playing in the grass, swinging, taking baths, reading books, and playing with family and friends.


Dislikes:  Poopy diapers (must change IMMEDIATELY!), getting his faced wiped, and running out of food on his highchair tray!


Favorite Toys:  Books, foam letter mat, play kitchen with pretend food, Fisher Price Learning Birdbath,  Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Crawl Around Car, and Leapfrog Cook and Play Potsy (a pot filled with vegetables that has a spoon and a lid). 


Nicknames:  Miam and Little Dude.


Health: Liam is perfectly healthy!  He had roseola for a few days at the beginning of September, but no other health issues to worry about!


Early Intervention: Liam  receives Occupational Therapy once a week, Physical Therapy once a week, and speech therapy once a week.  All therapies are in our home.  We love his therapists!  He just had his yearly IFSP meeting on Monday, and set new goals for him!


Wearing:  3-6 month clothing, although 0-3 month onesies and a few 0-3 months sleepers still fit!  He has tiny feet and is still wearing size 1 shoes.  Size 2 diapers. 


Personality:  Liam has quite a personality!  He is sweet, cuddly, charming, and FULL of joy!
