Our sweet baby….Where did the year go? It feels like you were born not long ago, but at the same time it seems like you’ve been with us forever. We can’t imagine life without you here. You make us smile everyday and we love you more than you know.
You’ve changed so much this year. It’s crazy to think this tiny baby has turned into such a big boy!
At one year old, you are a happy, independent, active, sweet, but hard headed little boy. You know what you want and definitely let us know.
You now go to daycare now for the full day and absolutely love it. You actually don’t seem to miss either your dad or I. Sometimes, it makes me sad, but I know it really is a good thing. You love the other big kids. You are the smallest in your class but you don’t care at all and have no problem hanging with the big boys.
Your favorite things are being outside and playing in the dirt or sand. You also have discovered airplanes and as soon as you hear or see one, you point up to the sky and say “Oooo Ooooo Oooo”. You still love the water too, and enjoy your nightly baths. You are going to start swim class next week, and I think you’ll love it.
You still don’t say too much, at least in adult words. You talk and babble all the time, but it doesn’t make much sense to us. The only words we have heard you say are “mama”, “papa” and “nein”. “Nein” is “no” in German. In the 3 weeks you’ve been at daycare, it looks like you’ve picked up this word. Don’t know if you know how to use it appropriately because you go around repeating “nein nein nein nein”.
For your birthday, we made a little cake and sang to you. You usually love food and smash your hands into whatever you’re eating ,but for your cake you were quite hesitant.
At daycare they made you a crown and you brought some muffins to share with your friends. That evening we celebrated at home.
Abuelo and Abuela were also here to celebrate your first birthday with you! They taught you how to blow so you could blow out your birthday candle.
Your dad and I got you a Fire Truck and a book for your birthday.
I know this post is a little late for your birthday but as of September 24th, you are offically walking! You still crawl some, but can walk from one room to another. I know pretty soon we´ll be running after you.
Happy happy birthday to you buddy! We love you so much!!!!
Love, mama and papá
