  • He started clapping on my birthday. He claps all the time now. We can say "Yay, Camper!" and he'll clap.

  • He's starting to hand us things and "feed" us food. He thinks it's pretty funny

  • He loves to pretend he's talking on the phone. He heard a phone ringing on TV today and immediately put his hand up to his ear to act like he was on the phone.

  • He likes to walk behind his Tow Mater truck. He does not like when he runs into the wall!

  • He's doing a great job with his sippy cups. He's only getting one bottle in the morning and he's done quite well with the water/juice/milk transition.

  • He signs "all done", "milk" (we use this sign for juice too), and he has his own special sign for "please".

  • He'll hold up one finger when we ask how old he is.

  • He's still walking with assistance. We're able to hold one of his hands and have him walk around. I know he can walk without our help, but he hasn't really wanted to take the plunge yet and I'm not really rushing it!

  • Still NO TEETH! (We did see teeth when he had the chest x-rays last month....so at least we know they are there!)

  • He loves to read books. He always wants Adam to read him Sandra Boynton's Barnyard Dance before bed. He also loves his tractor and truck book and Pat the Bunny.

  • He is becoming such a little boy! It's amazing to see how much he understands.

  • He's in between size 3 and 4 diapers.

  • He's wearing size 12 months clothes....and some size 18 months.

"Yay, Camper!!"


Loving on Beary

I simply cannot believe that our precious baby boy is ONE! This year has flown by. I really do feel that I enjoyed every moment of this year and savored each stage, but it still went by so quickly.

We're off to go play at the park and get ice cream! We got a coupon for a free balloon at Publix so we'll probably head on over there too!!

(I started working on this post last night because it tends to take a while to get all of the pictures up so it says 9.25.09, but his birthday is September 26th!)
