On this date one year ago, Billy weighed only 9.5 pounds and was 22in long.
At this point he still had black hair from when he was born, but it was falling out. He was just learning to hold his head up and push up with his arms when on his belly. He could not sit up or roll over.
On this day one year ago he smiled for the very first time.
He was still getting breast milk, but moving on to formula (due to complications on my end). He had a clear taste preference for Mommy's milk, but since there wasn't enough to go around and he was hungry, he'd take the formula with some coaxing. He was drinking 5oz of milk every 2-4 hours.
At this point he would be awake for 2-4 hours and then asleep for 2-4 hours. The longest he had slept was 5 hours during the night. Usually, he would wake us up for 2 night feedings. He had only had milk at this point, no other food or drink.
He liked to stare at the ceiling fan and enjoyed Pat-a-cake and Peek-a-boo with Mommy. He couldn't sit up, so all games and activities had to involve "assisted sitting"
Finally, I leave you with a picture from Halloween 2010.
What a difference a year makes!
