Tucker had his one year checkup and is progressing well. He weighed in at 20 lbs. 10 oz. and measured 29" tall. He's staying in the 25th percentile for height and weight, which is where he always measures. He took his first steps a few days after his birthday, but he knows that he can get where he wants to go faster by crawling. He's practicing walking when he's not too busy, and loves to climb up and down the stairs (under close supervision of course). He's been saying "Mom" and "Dada" for a while, but recently he started saying "Ares", but the s sound is still missing. He's sleeping really well lately; he goes to bed at 8:00-8:30PM and wakes at 8:30-9:00AM. He's starting to get a little pickier about what he'll eat. He used to love sweet potatoes, now he refuses them. He loves almost any fruit, and he especially likes blueberries and clementine oranges. He's not a big fan of plain vegetables, but every once in a while we can sneak some in. We tried introducing whole milk, but he quickly decided he despised it. He pushes away any container that he thinks has milk in it.
