Our little dude is 1 year old!

Miles is officially 1-year-old, he is a toddler, a baby no more…and I just can’t wrap my head around it.  I think it is a bit harder to swallow this time around knowing there won’t be another pregnant belly or brand new bitty baby in our house.  I was hoping he would stay tiny as long as possible, but always measuring in the 98 percentile…he apparently had other plans.  We had a fun little family birthday followed by a fun little construction themed party with close friends…both were perfect.  Happy first birthday little dude, I love you more than you will ever know.
The last month:
–He is walking!!
–He purposefully shakes his head “no” and points to every single thing that he wants.
–He will tell you animal sounds for a bee, bear, lion, dog, and sheep.  He says “boo” during peek-a-boo.
–Sleeps ~12 hours at night with a ~2 hour nap.
–Has 7 teeth…4 on the top and 3 on the bottom.
–He hates his car seat and really really really hates the stroller.
–He is such a picky eater now!  It feels like he hates everything.  Likes: wheat bread, yogurt, humus, guacamole, oatmeal, chicken: pureed/shredded/nuggets, raisins, and Cheerios.
–Nicknames: little dude, chubber, destructor.
–His eye color?  We have NO idea!  Sometimes dark blue, sometimes blue-gray, sometimes dark blue w/ brown tint, sometimes hazel.  It’s crazy, they always look different!
–Was sick for the first time this month: adenovirus, then 2 weeks later: double pink-eye, and now a yucky cold.
–He LOVES peek a boo, reading books, tickles, snuggles, hugs and kisses, and wrestling with Payton.
–He loves helping clean up and putting things back into their bucket/bag.

Lots of pictures from this past month and his birthday!!

    The picture of Miles in the Orange shirt shows how much he looks like Byron. It looks like he had a wonderful but messy birthday and it looks like he really enjoyed it. All of the pictures were wonderful and thank you so much for sharing them with me. Love you guys
