We celebrated Matt's first birthday on Monday. I can't believe that he has grown so fast. This past year has been full of new experiences and we've learned a lot as new parents. Matt is such a blessing in our lives. He has a lot of energy and fun to be around. He is drinking from sippy cups now or steals sips from our cups...he loves drinking from real cups. He is eating real food mostly, getting baby food fruits still. He can pull up to anything that has any kind of hand hold- stereos, drawers, fireplace ahhhh, sofa, toys, and his crib. He likes for you to hold his hands and let him walk around. He is still army crawling even though he gets up onto all fours and looks like he is considering to really crawl. He takes two naps a day, which is a huge blessing for me! Matt likes to hide things, or put them into drawers, shut the drawer and then open to find his toy still there. He loves books. When we are putting him to sleep, we sit in the glider and he pulls books off of the side table to read. If I pick one he is not interested in, he will push it away without hesitation. I guess he knows what he wants at such a young age. His new favorite thing to do is to point to things. He points to his humidifier a lot because it glows. He points to our drinks. He is always pointing to outside, he loves being outside. Anyways! Here are some more pictures of his party. Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated with us!
