Turning 1

It was a big day for our littlest love. His 1st birthday! I still can't believe my baby is already 1. My boy is so in love with his mama that I decided the best gift I could give him was an entire day alone with me. (Our Valentine photo together).At 9:50 am, the exact moment he was born a year ago he was fast asleep, bottom up in the air, 1.5 hours in to his nap. Once he woke up & after he was finished climbing in & out of his swing that he has definitely grown out of we headed out to his doctor's appointment to find out that he is indeed light like his brothers at 19 pounds 10 ounces (10%) but taller than them at 30.5 inches (65%). Lunch & another nap & then it was time for his one year photo shoot. Can't you tell he enjoys it? Averting his eyes & then playing peek-a-boo behind the tree. We did get some cute photos to finish his one year frame so I was happy. More playing, dinner with my family & then it was time to see if he would eat cake (well actually cupcakes) on his actual birthday. We all sang Happy Birthday, watched Johnnie blow out the candle again, gave Jimmy his cupcake & then waited, hoping that he would at least take one bite & not spit it out. NOPE! He picked it up, smooshed it in his hands & threw it on the floor. Looked over his tray to check out his mess. And then happily clapped for himself! Okay so maybe next year. So then we moved on to unwrapping gifts. Thanks for your help Johnnie. I thought for sure this would at least be successful. NOPE! He went off to play with grandpa instead. At least his older brothers enjoyed it. We love you baby boy & look forward to watching you grow even more this year, but please slow down. There's no rush.

What a cutie -- and such a little personality already at age one!
