All about Solomon

Can I just say I love, love, love this baby boy! He is doing so well at home. It is hard to believe that he is actually here with us.

(watching snow fall)

We recently took him to the doctor for a one year check up and here are his stats:

Height 31 3/4  (95th%)
Weight 23 - 7.0 (50-75th%)
Head 18 3/4 (75-90th%)

  • He currently is taking a few steps and LOVES to walk around with one or two hands held. He also loves to stand up on his own from the floor. Still crawls to get around.
  • His favorite toys are a baby einstein musical toy that lights up and stacking cups
  • He loves dancing to a good beat and tends to stop dancing when others start dancing with him.
  • He enjoys a good game of peek-a-boo and covers up his head instead of his eyes most times
  • He waves bye when he wants to
  • He tries to say up but it sounds more like mmmbah
  • He is starting to put things up to his ear as if it was a phone
  • He drinks from a sippy cup but loves his bottle and cries whenever he sees it.
  • He is eating more and more table foods. Loves puffs.
  • He reaches toward a light when asked where the light is, and he finds the dog when asked as well.
  • He loves his mommy and daddy.
  • He can snap his fingers.
  • He typically sleeps through the night from 7:30pm to 6:30am. He usually takes two naps during the day around 9:30am and then again around 3:00pm
  • He likes to make a squinty eye face

I promise to start blogging about Ethiopia next week...


  1. Oh, Laura! He is just adorable and I can't believe how much he has grown! Cannot wait to hear about everything and we must get the boys together after the holidays.
    Love, Ginger
    p.s. Judah is in the 90th% for height :-)

  2. He is just adorable! That's amazing that he can snap--I have kindergarteners that can't do that! Congratulations on having him home! :-)
