To begin our birthday celebration, we went out for breakfast early this morning before Paul had to go to work. Charlie had his first tastes of a blueberry muffin and a cinnamon roll. And he LOVED it. :) Can't wait to see him go for a whole piece of cake at his party on Saturday.
Happy Birthday to my little man, Charlie.
- You can crawl fast.
- You point to everything and sometimes I really think you're saying "Look."
- I also think you might be saying "doggie."
- You love to dig through your toy box and pull everything out and are learning to put everything back in, too!
- You understand so much and are really good at communicating what you want with us!
- You have learned the signs for "more" "eat" and "milk" and are just starting to use them.
- You are an early bird... go to bed early, wake up early!
- You are really strong and demonstrate your strength during every diaper change. :)
- You "pretend" you are talking on the phone and "rocking" your baby.
- You love music and will dance to anything with a beat.
- You have taken your first steps and everyday you get a little bit braver with trying to walk on your own. Its a game to you and you laugh hysterically every time you try.
- You play peekaboo all the time and loving hiding behind curtains, sheets, blankets, anything!
- You can clap and wave bye-bye, but only do it when you want.
- You don't like to sleep with a blanket or a stuffed animal.
- You are a great eater and gobble down anything we give you.
- You take two naps a day (one short, one long) and sleep about 11 hours at night. Finally!
- You have the best laugh I've ever heard. When you laugh in public, every turns and laughs with you.
- I think you're going to have a bit of a sweet tooth...
Happy Birthday Charlie!
*The publishing of this post was interrupted by Charlie awaking from his long nap with a big ol' fever!! After a trip to the dr. he is now sleeping again and has a diagnosis of a double ear infection. You'd never know it from the way he is acting! Poor baby... what a way to celebrate your first birthday!*
