Man it is hard to believe that we are already in November of 2010. Didn't this year just start like yesterday?
It is hard to believe that Pierson is 13 months. Yikes.
At 13 months Pierson:
Is not shy. In church on Sundays he finds older men to fill in as his Grandpas. He brings them his toys, wiggles his way onto their laps, plays with their watches, and won't come to mom until he is done. Bribes don't work. I am just glad that we have such a great ward and that these men don't mind Pierson or entertaining him. In fact they are probably just entertained by him. He is a silly little boy.
Loves to give loves. In church last Sunday he was kissing on two different girls. He even kissed them so much he knocked them down. He gives his mom and dad and sister lots of loves too. We don't mind all the slobber that comes with it either.
Has two new teeth coming in. The ones to the right and left of his middle bottoms. Thats eight teeth total now. (Avery was getting her one year molars at this point.)
Will walk short distances on his own. He has been taking steps on his own when we would make him but now he'll let go of whatever he's holding onto and walk towards whatever he wants. He has minor balance issues but it getting pretty good. I think we'll have a full fledged walker by the end of this week.
Is very determined. He will figure out how to open whatever it is that you don't want him to open. Or go where you don't want him to go.
Wrestles. He and Michael like to wrestle and then Pierson will try to wrestle Mom and Avery too.
Sleeps through the night. Again. Hallelujah. We moved Avery out of his room and he has done much better. He even sleeps in on some rare occasions.
Goes to sleep easily.
Is a picky eater. (Until he meets Grandma Great Brimhall)
Plays with his friends and gets excited when he sees them.
Doesn't like shoes or socks. Sometimes they'll stay on for extended periods but he usually will pull them off within minutes of being on. Though he does try and put shoes on himself a lot.
Points to things and yells "daaa" and then will grunt and make noises as if he is having a conversation with you.
Tries to do big things. Like dress himself, put a diaper on himself, feed himself with silverware, put the laundry in the basket, brush his hair, and other cute things.
Makes a lot of people smile every day.
