My baby is 1 year old today. I can't believe the time has passed so fast. What a character he's grown into this past year! He's a fun, loving, exciting, outgoing, fearless little boy who can do so much. He's walking like a pro and can even turn around and go back the direction he came from. He can bend down and pick something up and get back up without holding on to anything. He still eats like a horse. Everything is funny to him and he's almost always laughing. He's still a little rough with Oliver sometimes but he's getting better about that, too. Oliver is still his favorite person and he'll do anything Oliver asks him to.

He knows a bunch of signs including naked, bath, eat, ball, banana, more and puppy. He says Mim and Dada and banana. He understands a lot more than that. If I ask him to give me something he will. When I ask him what he wants to eat he heads for the kitchen. When I say it's bathtime he heads for the tub.

He has a lot more hair than he did when he was born, he's longer and heavier, too! I weighed him yesterday at work and he was 20 pounds! He's only a bit shorter than Oliver so hopefully he didn't inherit my height. There are still only 8 teeth in his mouth, 4 on top and 4 on bottom but he's been drooling and chewing again lately so I think those "1 year" molars are on their way. He's still reddish blond with just thin wispy hair. There's not much of it but it suits him pretty well.

Climing is one of his favorite things to do. He loves the view from up there - up anywhere really. He can get onto Oliver's bed, chairs, the sofa, the loveseat, the futon, the bed. When we're outside he'll climb up the little slide and go right down with no hesitation.

He's almost always smiling and so good-natured. I'm so proud that he is our baby!!!!!!!

I love you, Wyatt. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
