Henry :: Two

My sweet baby is two years old! Henry is proof that just because you already raised three two year old boys does not mean you know everything about raising two year old boys. Hahaha! Henry is a stitch. You never know if you're going to get the sweetest smile or whether he's going to throw something at you just for looking at him. One thing is for sure. This kid loves music, and loves to dance. The way he can move to a beat is amazing. He loves playing outside and going on bike rides with his brothers and dad. He is the pickiest eater I have ever had - kid lives on cheese, fruit, and milk (I know. I'm jealous, too). His hair is something else. He used to hate reading books, but is coming around to it. He loves playing with blocks and legos. He doesn't say much - my kids usually don't talk until after they turn 2 - but he signs some words, fakes sneezes, and has a secret handshake with his brother.

I love my sweet and sour boy SO MUCH! Happy Birthday, Henry!

Henry Francis :: Twelve

I can't believe this is already the last 12 months of Henry post! Henry turned one last week, and he is so much fun. He is army crawling everywhere, and is finally starting to stand. He's a bit behind on the whole walking thing. We think he might have something called joint hyper-mobility in his hip joints (basically it means he's super flexible in his hips, and low muscle tone can come with it too), which can delay walking. It's also genetic and his cousin has it. I did bring it up to his doctor, but he said it's hard to really tell when they are so young. He said there is nothing we would do differently at this point anyways, but to keep encouraging him to stand.

Henry got three new top teeth all at once last week, is working on the fourth, along with two more on the bottom. Ouch! He had a few rough days, but overall has been his same smiley self. 

He LOVES to play with his big brothers, especially (big) Legos! He loves peek a boo and clapping his hands.

He has consistently been sleeping through the night for a couple of weeks now, and is an awesome, very flexible napper. You kind of have to be when you have three older and active siblings!

He weighed 19 lbs, and was 28.75 inches long at his appointment last week which puts him at 15% on the growth chart. It's the highest he's ever been, aside from his birth weight, so we are very happy about that!

Overall he is a very chill, easy going baby. Although, he can definitely be loud and crazy when he needs to be.

Here is Henry at 12 months old!


Will at 12 months
Sam at 12 months
Charlie at 12 months

Happy 1st Birthday, Henry!

My baby is ONE! You are such a sweet baby. You love hanging out with your big brothers, and army crawl everywhere. I can't believe you are one already! The first half of your life was quite challenging, but once we got things figured out you have been the most chill, smiley baby. Henry, we love you SO much! 

I will save his updates for his last 12 Months of Henry post, so for now just enjoy the adorable pictures (which is why you are even looking at this to begin with)

Happy Birthday, Henry!
