We have a walker!!

Max started walking on a snow day February 9th 2011. He is 13 months old. We could not be more excited or proud. He just woke up and decided he was going to start walking. Greg happened to be working from home that day so he got to see everything. It was so awesome. He has taken off and has not looked back.

Blogging again…

I have decided that once I get caught up I am going to do a blog post a week. I really enjoy doing it. I have just been lazy and I hate when my husband (as wonderful as he is) goes back through and fixes all of my errors. If I wanted them fixed I would have done it the first time around…Right :)

Anyway I am horribly behind on the Gifford’s adventures and I figured Id better get it into gear. I hope you all enjoy!!

Max is 1 year old!!!

January 8th 2010- Max is 1

I cant believe our baby is 1. We have been anticipating this day but at the same time it doesn't feel real. I feel like I just brought this little person home from the hospital. The time and flown by and we are truly blessed with an intelligent, funny, strong willed, amazing little guy.

Milestones achieved this month have been:

He is a cruising man. He loves to walk holding on to things. He is trying to feed himself with spoons and forks. We are no longer using bottles just sippy cups and he is now drinking whole milk. He loves to climb on anything and everything that he can.

At his 1 year well baby appointment he weighed 22 pounds and is 30 3/4 inches long. That is the 30% for weight and the 80% for height. He also received a few more vaccinations, which means we are done until he is two. We also did his vision test which was perfectly fine. They also did a blood draw which was a easier than we thought.
