Well, we did it little buddy. Here we are one year later. Twelve whole months under our belt...definitely some of the best months of my life. I never imagined this last year would look like it did, or for that matter go by so quickly. Truth be told, I am the latest I've ever been on your monthly posts since you're already 13 months as I'm writing this. I started this post when you were about 11 months because I wanted to have it ready on your one year birthday. Then life happened, and well, I just never got it finished. But here we are now, and I want to remember everything about you when you were 12 months old, so I'm playing catch-up. :)
-Your 12 month check-up was actually the day before you turned 13 months. You weighed 21 lbs, 3 oz, and were 29 inches tall. Your head measured a whopping 18 inches around! Full of brains, I think.
-The back of your
mullet hair has started getting a few curls, which I absolutely l-o-v-e. I know it's well past time for you to get a haircut, but I just haven't done it yet. Probably very soon though, as the "party in the back" is starting to get a little crazy.
-And how could I forget to mention this?! You started walking this last month, not too long after you turned 11 months. It really took us by surprise when you did, and it's still crazy to see you walking around like such a big shot.
-You love to look at books. Your favorite is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom that your cousin Hayden got you. You always pick that one off the bookshelf first
then start throwing the rest of the books off at a rapid fire pace.
monthly birthday gift from my friends in Waco was perfect! Swim trunks, swim diapers, and a floatie toy were the perfect way to kick off the summer and you've already gotten lots of use out of them. The monthly gifts were so fun and I'm a little sad they're over. Thank you guys again for making his first year birthdays so much fun!
Emanuel, being your mommy really is the best feeling in the world. My love for you grows every single day, and your Daddy and I have so much fun watching every little thing you do. I pray that this next year together is as blessed as the first...and I pray for lots of patience and wisdom for me as we enter the toddler years! :)
I love you baby boy. Happy Birthday! XOXO.
