One month (31 days) from today, Henry turns one....count'em ONE, ONE year old. ah, ah ah...
I just don't believe it.
I can't believe it.
I shan't believe it.
But then I look at these pictures below and realize I gots to believe it. Our boy is growing up. Fast.
He is not slowing down one bit and is trying to enter his first birthday with a bang....most likely caused by him falling off the coffee table. Again.
This child is a handful, fo sho, and while it can be frustrating at times I love seeing him develop every week and his personality start to come through.
He has taken his first steps and then some. He can walk from one end of our small living room to the other. Now granted, I think a 100 year old, drunk, blind man probably looks more graceful than Henry, but we are still super proud of him!! WAY TO GO BUBBY!!
He is also a climber, which is evident from the pictures below. If it is even an inch off the ground, he prefers to be on it. If it is round...no problem. If he falls off it....he will cry and then get right back up and fall again. And if he can't get up on it, or we don't let him get on it then look out because baby hulk comes out. I think we are going to have to work on his temper...they say he got it from me. Whatever, I don't see it. When someone says that to me I usually scream at them, throw my phone down and stomp away. I like to think I know how to keep my temper in check.
So what are my sons stats.
Clothes? Mostly PJ's, but prefers as little on as possible
Food? Can't get enough of it
Toys? Loves them (I would like to point out for my own record since I don't keep a baby book and this is basically it, that he can now put the coins in the slot of his toy piggy bank!! Huge accomplishment!)
Nicknames? Monkey, Boof, Bubby/Bubbas
What is he like? Why don't you see for yourself. I think these pictures sum up the personality emerging from Henry pretty darn well :)
Two extremes: wild and crazy....
....introverted and inquisitive.
Watch the progression. I just sat on the couch taking pictures of what he did.
This is the face he makes when he is "talking" to us. He is a chatterbox!!
(Yup, this sums up our child fairly well....Love this goofy kid!!)
He loves to carry his monkey around the living room while he does "laps"
May look like a smile, but he is turning into baby hulk because he wants on the couch.
Again, watch the progression....the boy loves to climb and problem solve :)
The hard work paid off! :)
Eating is exhausting...
I had JUST put this up and literally within 90 seconds he was IN it.
His "toy box".
He emptied ALL the toys out, flipped it over, climbed up. Fairly ingenious we think.
Clapping....I am on the coffee table!!
Standing on the coffee table, grabbing the gate. Nope, I do not foresee him falling at all : /
Lounging....yep, that's our boy.
(Please see that he is chill'n on his spiderman couch, watching TV, and drinking his
afternoon bottle with ONE hand. Yep, he is awesome.)
Let the countdown to ONE begin......
