One Year check up.

Cash had his one year check up today.  He handled those shots like a champ - again.  I still think he's going to be my "feel no pain-comes to me with his arm dangling-yet tells me it just looks funny" child.
He's still tiny - 27 inches ( < 5th percentile) and 20.5 lbs (10-25th percentile).

What he's doing:

  • sleeping through the night 
  • will go to sleep on his own - let us put him in his crib at 7:30 and just go to sleep on his own
  • loves to splash about in the bathtub (sometimes just to play and other times actually to take a bath lol)
  • still only has the 2 bottom teeth with no sign of any others
  • can stand on his own, but once he realizes it, he sits down - "like whoa - not ready for that"
  • LOVES to rough house, especially with Jill
  • pushes all of his push toys EVERYWHERE around the house (can manuever them out of spots they get stuck in), cruises the furniture without them
  • vocab: i love you, mama, dada, water (wa-wa), more (moh), done, blueberry, puppy (pup-pup), paci (nene) , bottle (baba), thank you, kitty, yeah, mumum (one of his favorite snacks), dededede is his nonsense word for whatever he wants to know
  • waves "hi" and "bye" 
  • can now sign "i love you" - but only does it occasionally
  • Daddy is definitely the favorite
I can't think of anything else to add right now, but will update more as I think of them...

He wears size 3 diapers still and 12-18 month clothes.  I'm finding that he's got my monkey arms as clothes will fit him everywhere, yet be too short in the arms.  Oh joy.

One Year - how the time has flown.

So sorry I'm slacking on my posting - life has just been hectic.  Cash turned one - yes, you read that right - he turned ONE on Saturday the 23rd and we had a party for him.  It wasn't a big party - mostly family and a couple of friends.  We didn't want him to get too overwhelmed and be a grouch.  It was "scheduled" from 2-5 and at 3:00ish he decided he needed a nap.  Normally, Cash takes ~30 minute naps, so I thought this would be no big deal; we would all be able to eat while he napped and then we could get on with the pudding finger painting I had planned for the kids and then the cake.  WRONG.  He took a TWO HOUR nap.  Party didn't end til about 7.  Of course those that needed/wanted to leave - left and those that wanted to stay - stayed.  But it just was so "prince" of him.

The theme of the party was "mustache bash" and I made all the decorations myself.  I started about 6 weeks ago.  I can't be more pleased with how everything turned out, but I'm still exhausted.  I'll have to forgot about all this hard work before I consider doing this again.  HA.  After everyone left and I had it all cleaned up I told Trey - "no more birthday's".

Thank goodness my friend Sunshine was there taking photos for us because I NEVER once had a moment to get my camera out.  Here are a few from the day:

The sweet birthday boy himself.

The "entry" table.  The basket was the party favors (a mustache t-shirt I made which was a "smock" shirt for the fingerpaint pudding that the kids could also take home with them), I also had different size photos of Cash's tractor photo shoot laid out with envelopes that the adults could pick through and take with them.

These cookies came from an Etsy shop - All Things Exquisite, and they were delicious and very reasonably priced!

Silly dad/papaw!

The fingerpaint pudding fun!  (it came out a little runny - I forgot to account for  the liquid  all natural dyes when I was pouring the exact amount of milk it called for - OOPS!  lesson learned.  

It doesn't matter because he LOVED it.  Eating it.  Playing in it.  Dumping it.  Whatever.  It was worth it.  

"nevermind the cake, I see creme brulee!"

and he ate just about all of it!

Leah used the wheels from Cash's Kozy Truck to "pimp" out his mini cooper.  

He even tried to help open his presents.  Sometimes.
