I couldn't let the day go by without doing a simple HAPPY BIRTHDAY blog post! Here is our little man at 1 YEAR OLD! Today, mommy and daddy had to work so E went to daycare. We took cupcakes for Easton and all his friends to enjoy! I made him the onesie he is wearing with just an iron-on. I felt like he needed something 'birthday-ish" to wear for the day. After daycare and work we came home and E and I took a short nap on the couch together. Kevin, E and I decided to go out to dinner. We went to O'Charleys where Easton was treated to free mashed potatoes and a free ice cream with chocolate syrup. Needless to say he loved them both. He gobbled up the ice cream (no brainer..). There are more blog posts to come but I just had to post about our baby boy turning ONE!!! We Love You more and more every day! I hope you have had The BEST first birthday Angel!
I'm a little behind on this....Ive been in a blogging slum lately and my blogger has been acting up. On 12/24/12 our little man turned 11 months old! Taking still pictures, with this little mover, is getting harder and harder. =)
-Eating a whole lot more food than he was. The other day he ate a whole ham and cheese sandwich and a whole container of mandarin oranges and 2 arrowroot cookies. I think mandarin oranges are definitely one of his favorite foods.
-When he is eating now he reaches over his highchair at the dogs. Usually its either to pet them or to throw food over the side of the chair. The dogs are loving it....me, not so much! =)
-Can find my nose and eyes when asked where they are. We are working on mouth.
-He will now offer me a bite of what he is eating or a toy that he is playing with.
-Definitely likes to snuggle more now. I love this!
-He really loves to wallow in the sheets. Especially when he is naked and getting into or out of the tub. He crawls all over the bed laughing and burying his little face into the covers. SO cute!
-We now have a stair climber! We haven't had a baby gate on the stairs until just now. I was eating lunch one day and he was playing by himself, all of a sudden I turned around and he was up 2 stairs!! I couldn't believe it. Now he likes to pull up to the baby gate and shake it. Silly boy!
-He loves all of the push and walk toys that he got for Christmas! He is constantly on the move with those toys.
-Pointing is a big thing lately too. As soon as I get him out of his crib in the morning or pick him up from daycare he is pointing at things and waiting for me to tell him what they are.
-He will stand, very briefly, by himself for a second or two. No movement yet though.
-He is still eating almost every single thing I put in front of him. So glad! If he rejects something one day then I usually just wait a day or two and offer it again and he will usually eat it up. =)
-We are getting more and more teeth too. He now has 4 teeth. Two on the top and two on the bottom.
You grow and learn so much every day! We love you so much E! I CANT BELIEVE YOU ARE 11 MONTHS OLD!!!!!!!!!!!
