Zane - One Year Well Check

Today, we went to see Dr. O for Zane’s one year well check…

He weighs 20 pounds and is 28 inches long.
He is currently in about the 9th percentile for his age.

All was well except for some blood work that showed he is a bit anemic.
Which is not a big deal, we just have to start him on some vitamins.

But he is a happy, healthy little guy!

Zane has discovered his love for M&M’s.
Yesterday, I was trying to get some work done about 10am and Zane was fussy.
It was probably time for a snack, and he had been playing in the mud room,
where our pantry is located (and playing in some of the snack food).
So…I opened a package of M&M’s and he was one happy kiddo!  :)

A few months ago, Zane showed signs of an allergy to egg.
So we completely wiped egg out of his diet.
Dr. O gave us permission to begin to give him egg, as an ingredient, 
in small portions to see if he has any reactions.
I am happy to start this process…it is a bummer when your kid has any kind of allergy!

Other than that - he can have any other kinds of food.
Zane loves pretty much anything he can feed himself.
Except meat.
This kid does not like, and will not eat meat.
I’m actually not sure what to do with him…because Jaxen was the complete opposite!

He does like all fruits and most vegetables so far.
He he will put down some dairy…all kinds!

He mainly drinks whole milk and water,
Every now and then he will get a hold of Jaxen’s cup and enjoy himself some juice.


Zane is a pretty good sleeper now.
He typically sleeps between 11-12 hours at night.
He will still wake up once or twice and cry for a few minutes, but goes back to sleep on his own.
I have learned that if he wakes up crying in the morning - he needs to go back to sleep.
If he wakes up happy and playing, he is ready to get up.
I have pulled him out of bed a few times when he woke up crying (it’s usually very early)
and he has a terrible morning, and is grumpy.
I have learned to let him lay there and put himself to sleep and wake up happy :)

Zane still mostly takes two naps a day.
He can get by with one…but two is still optimal :)
He normally takes his first nap between 10-11am, and his second between 3-4pm.
For both naps - an hour and half is typical.

He goes to bed between 7:30-8pm.


Zane is wearing 12 month clothes.
There are a few 9 month that he can fit into…but mostly 12 month now.


Zane is walking like a champ now!
He will still crawl if he falls or if he is in a hurry - haha! 
This kid can crawl so fast.

He loves outside.
Now that we have been outside (a few days) he cannot get enough.
It’s a whole new world!
And I have to keep taking grass, rocks, mulch and dirt out of his mouth.
But he loves being outside and wants to do anything that Jaxen does.

His favorite things to do are to play with cars/trucks and balls.
It can keep him entertained for awhile.
And he loves to get into all my cabinets, and the toilet, and the pantry…
basically, he is so curious and I feel like he is way more into things than Jaxen ever was.
Keeps me on my toes.
