Birthday Babe

I can't even believe I am saying this, but our sweet little bub is one now! EVERY parent says it, but time really does go by too fast. I wish I could hold time still and keep him my baby forever. At the same time I can't wait for him to get bigger so we can enjoy more things together. He now weighs 25 1/2 pounds (50-75th%) and is 30 1/2 inches long (75th percentile). So although he still looks like a chunk...he really is in proportion to his height! He is the sweetest little guy. He is a great sleeper and is normally quite happy and likes to laugh a lot. He likes to wave his hands in the air when he laughs and claps his hands. He army crawls all over the place but still does not stand or walk! We are in the process of looking into this to be sure his hips are ok. But it is more likely that he is just a little lazy, or I prefer layed back. A few other facts about Ty:
  • He has 6 teeth - 4 on top, 2 on bottom
  • He sucks his thumb only when he is really tired (and it is really cute)
  • When he takes a bath there is a splash zone...and the bath-giver is always in it and comes out wet too
  • He is a night-owl many nights and just sits in his bed talking and singing
  • He loves his dad and will cry if Brandon comes home briefly and then has to leave again without him
We had 2 small birthday get-togethers. First a family birthday dinner the Sunday before. I made chocolate cake with banana cream frosting. He picked the slices of banana off of the top. It took him quite a while before he finally dug in, but he was way more interested in smushing it in his hands than eating it. Fine by me if he prefers fruit to cake! :)
On his actual birthday we just had a few friends over for a bar-b-q. We have been wanting to have them over anyway so this was a good excuse. We had a fun time and Ty had his second cake, this time lemon. His favorite was still playing with it. (Note: he is allergic to egg whites so I had to modify both recipes). He got lots of fun new toys which is great because he was getting bored with his old toys. That night we watched the video of the first year of his life starting in the hospital. It was so fun to look back, but sad at the same time because it all went by in a flash! We cannot imagine life without this cutie and cannot imagine a better baby. How did we get so lucky?
