Cuatro’s First Year Litany ~ Chase Family Meal Plan


Seriously y’all. I blinked and he’s already a year. The litany…

4 teeth. (With one that I didn’t notice coming in, until it was all the way in. #fourthchildproblems)
3 ear infections.
4 sinus infections.
1 ticket to the ENT.
(He would catch a cold from his brothers and not be able to clear it on his own. Hence the ticket to the ENT…I suspect his adenoids are enlarged causing blockage and problems clearing the congstion, just like his older brothers!)
4 visits to Los Angeles.
2 visits to Ohio.
1 visit to Florida.
1 visit to NYC.
Lost count of our # plane rides.
10.5 inches in length from birth.
15 pounds in weight from birth.
2 months of walking/running by the age of 12 months.
1 climb onto the kitchen counter. (Brother left the stool too close and he scaled right up!)
Dozens of trips to the park.
1 furry brother born into the family.
Countless miles in the stroller.
Countless bites fed to the dog.
3 suspected food allergies.
Maybe a hundred afternoon naps in the car, while picking older brothers up from school.
A lotta messes.
16.6 hours “on the job” as my personal assistant. And sometimes assisting on a plane.

We mark up another year…and we move into toddlerhood. What a year, what a baby and what a blessing he has been!
