Beep, beep, beep…we have a toddler

DSC_0216

Our baby is 1! And thus a toddler, or so I hear.

Sometimes I look at him, remember his tiny little sleepy body, and think wow he is huge! When did he get so huge?!?! Yesterday, every time I looked at him I thought he looked tiny. Maybe he is losing weight. 😉 He still has giant cheeks, that sometimes look like puppy jowls. Otherwise, he is getting slimmer and slimmer all the time. We have to snap his diapers tighter than we did a couple months ago. When we went on vacation and used disposable diapers, I thought his pants were going to fall right off his nonexistent bum.

He is always on the go, only stopping to snuggle or read books. He says news words more and more often. The most recent are tongue and owl. I call him my backwards baby. He didn’t crawl and still has trouble sitting and standing on his own, but he runs all over the place once he’s up. He doesn’t say mama, or milk, or no; instead his first words were twinkle, moon, and sun. The same with signs; he does sun, tree, diaper and more, but doesn’t do milk, eat or all done (ones we have used the most frequently). I love seeing him grow and change, it’s the most fun I’ve ever had.

His birthday party was great! Everyone had so much fun and he got sooooo many presents (naively unexpected). It was overwhelming. There sure are a lot of people who love this little guy. We did a Little Blue Truck theme, which ended up mostly just being farm animals. We threw in some suns and stars because he is OBSESSED! The bakery messed up on the cake 😦 but oh well, next year I’ll make the cake myself.

He loved his new little blue truck and riding around with his cousins

We gave him his water table present on his birthday, the night before the party. Then ate vegan cupcakes, which were a much bigger hit than the cake at the party.

  1. Oh my goodness. He’s adorable, and definitely lengthening rapidly! Happy birthday!

    Those CHEEEEEKS!! I can’t even! Is his hair reddish, or is it the light in the photos? He is absolutely adorable. You two getting ready for number 2??

    • theartist says:

      It is reddish, or more like orangeish. I was shocked and in denial about it for a while haha. I was sure he’d have a head full of dark hair. Yes #2 is just around the corner, hopefully anyway.

      • Caitlin says:

        He looks like he might be one of those really handsome people who has reddish hair, but can also tan. I think it’s great!
