Our baby turned one year old earlier this month and we celebrated with a farm themed birthday. I planned on giving Michael a farm birthday this year but he suddenly had an opinion and wanted fire trucks, so in typical 2nd child fashion, Jack got the hand-me-down idea and decorations.
We only invited family to the party and still had 40 people to help us celebrate Jack turning one. I called in the big guns to help with food. That would be my mom. She has mastered cooking for an army.
Jack Likes: His mama. Cheese. Dogs and cats. Michael. Climbing. When Bob shakes his head and neighs like a horse.
Jack Dislikes: Having something taken away from him. Going to sleep on his own (we are working on this). There really isn’t much he dislikes. He’s a happy fella these days!
Words He Says: His first word was “book”. He also says doggy, woof woof, mama, dada, night night, no, ball, meows at the cats, and makes a raspberry sound for an elephant.
Milestones: He’s really trying to talk more now. He took 3 steps prior to his birthday but lost interest in walking after that. In the past day or two though he’s been cruising more often than crawling so I think he’s getting ready to commit to walking soon.
Growth: He’s 20lb 12oz (19%) and his height is 30″ (50%-something) He wears size 4 Pampers, and size 12 month clothes.
We love our little snuggle bug and can’t wait to see how much he learns and grows in the next year! He truly has the greatest big brother to look up to so he will be up to some shenanigans with Michael very soon.
We were so adamant that he didn’t have frosting before his 1st birthday because I wanted him to go crazy smashing cake and eating it. He mostly poked at it and squeezed it in his hand but didn’t have much interest in eating it. Maybe this kid will actually eat vegetables during toddlerhood.
