Caysen, you are 14 months old! I can't believe how much you've grown and changed since we've been home. Here is what you are up to:

You can sit up unassisted, without bracing yourself on your hands; but you still need a pillow behind you because sometimes you get so excited, you forget to balance and you fall backwards :(

Just this week, you have really figured out how to bear weight on your legs. Now that you've discovered it, you pretty much think it's the coolest thing ever to stand up straight (with mama or daddy helping you balance).

It turns out that you are lactose intolerant; no wonder you never cared for formula! We've got you on rice-milk now and we're adding soy formula to your food and packing the calories in wherever we can.

You babble and talk more every day. You have really found your voice over the past month and you think it's pretty great!

You are so close to saying da-da, but you have no idea what it means. Mama just tries to get you to say it because she knows how special it will be for daddy ;)

You wore 9 month pajamas for the first time last night. There is still plenty of room to grow into them, but it's hard to believe you are up to 9 month clothes now!!

You can hold your own bottle if you are reclined, but you haven't figured out that you have to tip it up when you're sitting ;)

You are still a good sleeper, and mama and daddy are so thankful for that!

You start physical therapy this week; no doubt, you'll continue to amaze us :)

You are also starting a toddler group this week, which was recommended by your PT coordinator.

You take baths in the big bathtub now; no more sink baths.

You weight 14 lbs!

You are still the most perfect and precious, sweet boy, and we thank God every day for letting us have you in our lives :)
