Twelve Months

(***First, I must apologize for my tardiness on this post.  We didn’t get his 12 Month Berger picture taken until that evening and then I spent Friday preparing for Wyatt’s party and waiting on family and friends to arrive.  The last of the family left Tuesday morning.  Get excited for a couple of days of Birthday recap!!  Now back to the Twelve Month update.***)

Twelve Months = One Year.

One Year.  My baby boy is officially a YEAR old!  Where did the year go?!?

So, What are you up to at ONE year?

–  You are still working on eating table food.  You have some really good days with it and some bad days with it.  For now we are going to continue to try to work through your gag reflexes with you, and supplement your diet with multivitamins. 

–  You still get up once a night, but quickly go back to sleep.  You normally sleep between 8:30 pm – 7:30 am. 

–  You have taken some unassisted steps but prefer to hold our hand while walking.  You do really well when you walk around barefoot and struggle with tennis shoes on.  You still cruise around the furniture and LOVE walking behind your dump truck and an empty diapers box.

– You have added a couple of “talents” this month.  You can now make an “indian” sound with your hand and mouth.  You can also click your tongue against the roof of your mouth to make funny sounds.  You have been trying REALLY hard to roll your tongue, but can’t quite master it yet.

–  You try to talk all the time!  We know that once you figure it out we are going to be in TROUBLE!

– Your One Year doctors appointment is September 4, so we will have a height/weight update then.

Wyatt,

I can hardly believe you are already a year old.  This past year has flown by!  I spent most of the first few months just trying to survive being a new parent, trying to make sure you were happy, healthy and safe.  Once I got used to that, you were growing, sitting up and playing.  I blinked and you were crawling, trying to take on the stairs, and pulling up on the couch.  Now you are turning a year old.  This past year has been the BEST year of my life.  Your smile makes my heart melt, a hug from you and the whole world seems right.  The innocence you have is something I treasure.  You are a constant reminder to your Daddy and I to soak up the simple pleasures, to remember that there is good in this world, and to love with everything we have.  You have a light in your eyes that shows me that anything is possible and that you will accomplish great things in life.  Your Daddy and I love you more than anything in this world, you are our sun and our moon.  Thank you for being OUR sweet little boy.  We can’t wait to see what the next year has to offer our family of three!!  We LOVE you Wyatt, to the moon and back.  Happy Birthday to our favorite little monster!! 

Love Always,

Mommy

    Sweet post! The first year goes by way too fast, doesn’t it? Don’t get discouraged on Wyatt’s eating. Caleb is 18 months and still only eats baby food. We know he’ll get it sometime and I know Wyatt will too!
