You’re an entire year old, little bubba!!
I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel the night before you turned one. Was I supposed to be sad that there wasn’t a “baby” in the house anymore? I love having babies around BUT I LOVE TODDLERS EVEN MORE!! There, I said it. Babies are cute and cuddly but toddlers are FUN! And ENERGETIC! And SWEET! And SILLY! And I honestly couldn’t wait! But, I enjoyed every moment of rocking you on your “last” night of babyhood. Which is kind of silly because you’re still obviously a baby 🙂
Likes: You love all things “boy”. You love playing with your cars and trucks. You love playing outside and already enjoy getting dirty. You love balls and Lucy’s tweety bird baseball bat. You love being outside in your car and on your swing. You LOVE your daddy right now and are starting to become a major daddy’s boy
Dislikes, being told no. That’s about it. You’re happy as long as we let you do what you want. HA!
Eats: Still nursing 5-6 times a day with no end in sight. You have a yogurt and banana every morning for breakfast. Lunch is always tricky because I feel like I’m giving you the same thing all the time: mac and cheese or sandwiches. Dinner is whatever we’re eating and you are NOT picky at all.
Sleeps: NOPE! You started sleeping through the night at eleven months but the last three weeks have been TOUGH! You are getting up two to three times a night and I can’t figure out why. You refuse to put yourself back to sleep and won’t stop crying until I go in there.
You wake up super happy though, so I can’t complain too much.

Milestones: You still have six teeth and can point to them whenever I ask. You can also point out your nose and your belly. We’re still working on the other body parts 🙂 You can say the words: teeth, horse, cheese, down, dog, ball, mama, dada and baba (your grandfathers). You recognize all sorts of commands, climb the stairs, wave hello and good bye. You clap your hands when I start to sing patty cake or if you’re happy and you know it. You are cruising along the furniture and like to hide on me and then laugh when I find you. You are full of so much energy and are the happiest, silliest little boy I have ever met.
So, I’m not sad at all that the baby stage is over. I am SO excited to watch you learn and grow into the little boy you’re supposed to be. That doesn’t mean that I won’t rock you a little longer at night or hold you a little longer during the day. I love you, Beckett James. Happy Birthday!!
