12 months

How is my baby boy already a year old?!?!?!?!?!  This month he:

  • Is eating solids on his own.  He wants to eat whatever we're eating and he wants to do it himself.
  • Wants to be involved in everything we do.  And I mean everything...but who needs bathroom privacy anyway?
  • Walking a few steps unassisted and all over the place when assisted.
  • Says "Mama", "Dada", "Uh oh", and a couple other words we can't quite figure out yet.  Of these, his favorite is "Dada"
  • Can reach counter tops.
  • Loves to feed the dogs from the dinner table.
  • On a related note, he still does not seem to understand (I fear he understands and just doesn't care) the word "no".
  • Getting much better about gentle touches.
  • Displays a bit of a temper.  He comes by that honestly so no shocker there.  Sorry son.  Yikes.
  • Is drinking cow's milk.  He had breast milk exclusively for his first year but took immediately to Vitamin D cow's milk.
  • Went to Niagara Falls and Toronto.
  • Is 19 lbs and 30.5 inches.
We love this little guy so much!  Happy 1st birthday Copeland!!!

1st birthday!

Copeland turned a year old on September 10th.  For his birthday, Ryan and I both took off work and had a big breakfast, went by Ryan's office since Copeland and I had never been, went out for lunch, and went to the zoo.

I think his favorite parts of the day were getting to walk and riding on Daddy's shoulders.

It was a gorgeous day and we had a lovely time even if Copeland didn't seem terribly interested in the animals.

That night we gave him non-pureed spaghetti for the first time.  As expected, it was a huge mess and completely adorable.
We finished dinner with a cupcake!  This was the first time Copeland had ever experienced sweets.
What is this magical thing?
Maybe I should lick it.

Goodness this is delicious.  I need to stuff as much in my mouth as possible!
What does she think is so funny?  
All gone!
The very next day we (appropriately) had Copeland's first dentist appointment.  He made it through the entire cleaning and exam and the dentist said everything looks great!
