I think I'm in complete denial that my baby is one. I really can't believe it. This little buddy has brought us so much joy over the past year. He is the sweetest thing! He has me, Adam, and Camp wrapped around his finger! WE LOVE OUR COLLINSY BEAR SO MUCH!!

twelve months of Collins...I did this same collage for Camper too! :)

  • He's starting to take a few steps on his own. He will only do it if he has someone to walk to. He's very cautious when it comes to walking...he loves to walk when we hold his hands, but he doesn't attempt to walk on his own yet. He loves to let go of furniture while standing and he expects us to make a big deal about it! :)
  • He loves dogs and growls when he sees one or says "oooh oooh oooh". 
  • The moment we walk into Camp's class, he practically jumps out of my arms. He loves to get down and play with the fun toys!! 
  • He doesn't have any teeth yet! 
  • He's 21 pounds, 6 ounces and 29.5" tall 50% for both.
  • We've just started to transition to whole milk. He's getting three bottles a day, but I'm so ready for sippy cups and no more formula!
  • He takes two 2.5 hour naps a day. He sleeps 8pm-7:30-8am at night. He's the best sleeper! 
  • He's wearing 12-18 month clothes and he's in a size 4 diaper.
  • He's becoming very affectionate and loves to give hugs. 
  • His favorite foods are yogurt, applesauce, cheese, & turkey.

April 9, 2012 was one of the happiest days of my life. My heart grew the moment Collins was born and all fear of "will I be able to love another baby as much as I love Camp" was thrown out the window. I fell in love with Collins immediately. I still remember the feeling I felt once Camp came into the delivery room to meet Collins. It was a feeling of pure joy and pride...these sweet boys continue to make me proud and I'm so lucky I get to be their Mama!

Happy Birthday Collins!
