Pics from one year ago...

Well, the big day is here! Our little boy is one whole year old!!! It's funny, it seems like it's been such a long time that we've had him in our little family...and he's learned to do so much, so it seems so long in that sense. But at the same time, I can't believe it's only been a seems like just yesterday that I was in the hospital having him!

So, speaking of all that he's learned in the past year: he rolled over (front to back) at three weeks, rolled over back to front at two months, laughed consistently at two months, started blowing bubbles and sitting while propped at three months, started growling and eating "solids" at four months, started drinking from a cup and got his first cold at five months, scooted (EVERYWHERE!) at six months, could sit up and get into sitting position on his own at seven months, learned to pull himself into standing position and cut his first tooth at eight months, learned to clap and mimic "uh-oh" at nine months, learned to crawl at ten months, and started walking behind a push toy or by holding onto mommy or daddy's fingers at eleven months.

And then just in the past month, he has learned to: clap when asked, point, wave bye-bye, climb stairs (up, not down yet!), play peek-a-boo, throw a ball back and forth, open mommy's cell phone and call people, open cupboards in the kitchen, sucker daddy into giving him gummy bears, walk holding onto peoples' pants, open the dvd player, "honk" mommy and daddy's noses, go to sleep without a fight, mimic "thank you," and a ton of other things that continue to amaze us on a daily basis.

So since Logan's best friend James is in Seattle until Monday, we are postponing the birthday party until Monday evening. Which leaves his birthday free for some quality time with his mommy and daddy. YAY! We're planning on going up to Thanksgiving Point to see the farm and go to the petting zoo. After that, we have a trip to Toys-R-Us planned. He's part of the "birthday club," which means he got a gift card and gets a balloon or something when we go to the store. So we'll go check that out and get him his present...not sure what that is yet, though. Then after that, we'll go out to dinner (after all, it's a special day for me, too. I gave birth to a 9 lb 10 oz baby a year ago!!!) and then call it a day. It should be a good one!!!

I was reading your blog while I was feeding Lawson. Everytime I scrolled down to a picture of Logan, he would say, "Hi! Hi! Hi!" It was quite funny.
