Crawling and Climbing

Typing out my latest blog post
 Hey everybody! Well, I've had a pretty good first two weeks of being a year old. Like I said last time, I'm crawling everywhere now, and now I've added another trick- standing up! Daddy walked into my room a couple of weeks ago and saw I was standing up in my crib- and now I do it every day, all over the house. 

Anyway, last weekend Mommy and Daddy took me to my first-ever hockey game, as the Phantoms came back and played at Wells Fargo Center. It was a little loud and late at night for me, but I'm glad I got to take my first-ever trip to the Philadelphia Sports Complex- and I've got a feeling I'm going to be spending a lot of time down there in the years to come.

Cousin Daniel and Aunt Hannah joined us- it was his first hockey game too!

Also last weekend, we went to a birthday party for my friend Scott, who was born just a few days before I was. It was great to see him again, and while Scott is still bigger than me, I'm starting to catch up!

 Anyway, here are some other highlights of what I've been up to lately:
Brushing my teeth- only two of them, but gotta keep them clean!

Hangin' in the cart

I love my new Mickey Mouse couch...
Because Mickey and I can sit side by side!

I still like my old rocking chair though...
Because now I can sit in it!

Story time with Mommy

All right, time for sleep. Thanks for checking in everyone!


PS- Here's a video Aunt Amy took me of when they were in town for my birthday- where I smile, bounce and wave!

My First Birthday

Hey everybody! Well, Saturday was a special day- my first birthday! It's so hard to believe that I've come this far, from the little, little guy you see at the upper right to the crawly, noisy, much bigger boy you see today!

In addition to all my local family, Grammy, Grandpa, Aunt Amy and Jason came to town to celebrate with me. It was so great to see everyone, and be reminded of just how many people out there care about me. Thanks so much!

Here are some highlights from my birthday weekend:

Of course, I'd also like to thank Aunt Jaime for making me an awesome truck cake!

A big crowd sings "Happy birthday" with me

I think I like it!


How am I doing?

Ah, that was good.
My birthday isn't the only big thing that's been going on. I just started crawling not that long ago, but now I just can't stop! It's so much fun to see something I want across the room- usually a book, a toy, a ball, Mommy or Daddy- and just reach out and grab it.

Which book should I read?
I also had my first-ever haircut. Here's the before and after:

Anyway, I just want to once again thank everyone for following all my adventures in my first year. It means so much to Mommy, Daddy and I. Stay tuned for more fun in Year 2!

Your newest one-year-old,
