At one year!

Reese is a year old!
At one year he loves to take baths, desperately wants to be outside at all times, and babbles non stop. He loves to eat, and if one of us tries to eat anything without Reese getting some he gets very upset, he also loves to drink whatever we are drinking and wants to drink from a glass like a big boy. He usually fills his mouth with water and then spits it all out. He is super cute though and loudly goes MMMMMM! whenever we have food or water.
He is in 18 month clothes and size 5 diapers, he is a big boy! He still goes around bare foot as his foot his too chubby for baby shoes. Lengthwise he can wear a 3 or four but chub wise he needs a 5.
His vocabulary includes: Mama, dada, dad, daddy, look there, bath, hi, bye, hellllllooo, ball, bath, and no. His first sentence was "no no dada, no no dada" when David tries to get him to go to sleep at night.
His favorite book is Dr Seuss' "Mr Brown Can Moo," he is obsessed with balls, and will play with anything round including apples, oranges and potatoes.
His favorite meal is spaghetti bolognaise, and he loves Greek yoghurt.
 He is just a funny, happy, sociable little guy. He loves to talk with his hands, giggles a lot, and has learned how to pour water on David during bath time.
He stands up and takes a few steps every now and then, but he prefers to monkey crawl. This is when he moves his butt forward by leaning on one hand and bending one leg then scooting. He looks just like a gorilla.
Reese is till nursing, and spends most of the night in our bed, we are starting to wean him.

He is an absolute joy, and we are beyond blessed to have this little ball of energy in our lives. The last year has been filled with so much laughter but it has gone much faster than I ever imagined it would.

Now forgive me as I dump a  hundred pictures of Reese!
