12 Months – The Birthday Edition

So Bobby is a year old today and we had a super fun birthday party for him. Unfortunately, that means that tomorrow I drag my ass back to work. Booourns!

On to the new cute stuff he does!

  • tries to turn my head to show me something
  • puts his food in my mouth
  • takes all the paper out of Brent’s recycling bin
  • has favorite things (prefers one book to another and wants me to read it over and over for example)
  • hands things to me when he wants me to do something with it (ring a bell, blow a whistle, read a book, etc)
  • turns the pages of his board books
  • had rubella
  • started day care part time
  • we’re pretty sure he said “noodle”
  • follows simple instructions (sit down, don’t touch that, wait etc)
  • completed his first set of swimming lessons. The last class was wave pool day and he floated on his back in a life jacket as the waves came on and he was as happy as can be.
  • took one whole step all on his own
  • Official first word “No” Other words: “Yeah” “Don’t” – said as Donn
  • walks along furniture
  • goes up the stairs standing up (while holding someone’s hands)
  • Can point to the things you tell him to find (Where’s Percy? etc)
  • got his 7th tooth

Cleaning up around the house

All I do is work around here!

Oh, hello!

Hello up there!

Oh yeah, I got a hair cut

In 2007 – I wore shoes with dog poo on them
In 2006 – Registry boring stuff
In 2005 – Oh poo pills how I miss you!

    Oh wow…he’s adorable. And you can totally see what he’s going to look like as an older boy in that “peek” picture, somehow. 🙂
    Good luck back at (blah) work!

    Ok, you look SUPERSKINNY.
    ALSO – That cake? It is full of awesome. It is cute and sounds delicious and is probably way better for him than the cake my kid will get. LOL
    I bet this year really flew by :-/

      The pounds MELT off once you have to chase a kid around and keep him out of everything. That’s a definite PLUS to not baby proofing anything.
      Baby proofing is the LAZY way to parent ;P

  7. Happy Birthday Hurricane!

    The cute-o-meter is officialy broken. 🙂
    Nice hair cut.

  9. Happy Birthday Bobby!
    I was in the vilest of vile moods, but this masterpiece of adorable fun has made me feel joy.
    First- you look fucking fierce in that picture. Love the hair, love the view, love the modeling with the eyes.
    Second- he talks????? That is great. Noodle? Do you have any video of this?
    Third- Tyrone in the wagon stole my crazy dog lady heart.

    Happy Birthday!! 🙂

  11. You have one beautiful little boy- and I love the owl cake and the new haircut!

  12. Question-
    Quick question- what is the color of your wall in the photo of your new haircut? We are re-painting our living room and I really like that color. I know you haven’t recently painted it, so I realize you may not remember the name.
    Thank you!
