12 Months Old!

It happened.  My baby is now one year old.  Yesterday we had his birthday party with just his Grandparents, Gg-ma, and my brother's family.  It was a great party.  Very low key and simple with good food and lots of baby cheek pinches.


Confused by singing and cake.

Chocolate cake w/ red whipped cream core & blue whipped cream icing!

Cake goodness sinking in.

Now that we've got that party stuff out of the way, on to the main event.  Why my 12 month/1 year old is better than a meatball sandwich!

My 12 Monther
~ Crawls.  Crawl fast and with skill.  That developed fast.
~ Pulls himself up onto knees and cruises on knees solo.
~ Pulls himself up to standing while assisted and cruises while up there.
~ Crawls at top speed and rams his head into whatever part of your body is handy as a way of showing his love.  Will rub his forehead back and forth against you like a puppy while laughing.
~ Will imitate you doing something.  Especially a cough or toy manipulation.
~ Will use 2 words together.  Specifically "Hai kitty!"
~ Is getting slowly better with table food.  New favorite is beans.
~ Is an expert ring stacker and enjoys stacking his blocks as well.
~ No longer obeys "No!" even though he clearly understands it. 
~ Continues to be a champion sleeper and has started taking his afternoon nap upstairs in his crib without fuss.

12 Months Owl!

Happy 1 Year, my sweet little Pud!

Update from Dr appointment:  Weight is 22 pounds 11 ounces, 50%.  Height is 31 3/4 inches tall, 95%.  Head size is 19 1/2 inches, 98%.  So his stats are staying the same and he's growing proportionally.
