Little Man is 1 Year

I’m a couple of weeks late with this post. My little man turned 1 on May 26. We went and had his photo taken yesterday. We got some really good ones. He isn’t wearing shoes for two reasons. I don’t have a nice pair to go with that outfit. Second.. I love baby feet. I just can’t resist having bare feet in a picture.

As his Mom of course I think that this baby is beautiful and has an adorable smile. His personality is just as wonderful. I could hold and kiss that little face all day.

Here’s some facts about him. He is a sweet little guy. The only time he is fussy is when he is hungry or tired. He doesn’t demand attention. I guess he has figured out that is pointless. He has the cutest giggle. He loves to be tickled, to play peak a boo and to be entertained by his older siblings. He isn’t walking yet. Which is okay with me. He has started to let go when standing and can balance for a few seconds. When you go to put him on the floor he doesn’t put his feet down to stand he sticks them straight out to sit. One day he’ll be interested. Heep is a great sleeper. At night he will sleep at least 12 hours. He takes two naps a day usually totaling about 4-5 hours of sleep. I couldn’t ask for more.

He is a great eater. I haven’t found very many foods that he won’t eat. His main staples are oatmeal with applesauce, avocado, banana, peanut butter sandwich and Cherrios (what one year old doesn’t love these). The only thing I have found that he really doesn’t care for is rice. I guess it feels funny. He loves all fruits and loves beans. He doesn’t like to be out. We are working on the sign for more but he finds that screaming like a howler monkey is very effective. He just smiles at me when I put his hands together to sign more.
