Year number two is off to a fantastic start…aside from the massive poop incident that covered Casen’s face. wall. curtain. mattress. blanket. and seahorse glowworm. I refuse to share the photo…it’s too gross. Anyway everything is all cleaned up and I can’t get enough of my sweet one year old.
At his one year check up he weighed 24 lbs + measured 31 inches long. His little hair is finally starting to grow. Hoping for curls! He is going to get all the ladies with his lips…always sticking them out, giving kisses. It is the cutest. He leans his head over with his mouth open. omg! Stop growing. I mean stop walking everywhere! Case is not afraid of anything. Well maybe my sister’s dog. ‘Daw’ his new word. He loves our dog, George. Giggles and gets so tickled when he walks past and sniffs him. Definitely still ticklish, always has been.
This past month he was a first timer in the ‘car cart’ at the grocery store, enjoyed a few dips in our new kiddie pool in the backyard, went to Grant’s Farm and celebrated cousin Addie’s first birthday!
Aghhh! No. I mean what?! Still sinking in that Case is eleven months old. See a few photos here. No more baby clothes and soon he will be out of his pumpkin seat. Oh geez. On a positive note…time to plan his first birthday party!
Seriously y’all he is going to walk any day. He stood up the other day and started to take a step and just I grabbed him. Um…I’m not ready yet. I know. I know. But I didn’t have my camera and Daddy was at work. Have to capture that big milestone.
We are in the double digits now…eek! Oh it makes me so happy to see Casen growing and doing new things. My baby is not so little anymore, in a few months we will be celebrating his first birthday!
Case is quite the little mover. Getting a bit harder to keep an eye on…usually you can find him behind the couch or in the bathroom. He tried to wash the shower curtain in the toilet this week. I think he dreams of being big so he can do all the things Jax does. Like running! He loves his brother. One of these days they will be in the living room wrestling, knocking each others teeth out. (That day can take its sweet ol time). Speaking of teeth. Some newbies came in…crooked as ever, but hoping they straighten out.
This past month he has learned to clap! It is the cutest. Catch it over on vine…and follow me! (I got a new phone so my video quality isn’t so shitty anymore).
Geez. I feel like I just wrote Case’s update, but it’s that time again because he is 9 months old today! This past month has been great, despite a few visits to the doc, he is happy and healthy 19.9 lb baby.
My brave little one has been trying to let go once he pulls up next to the couch. Getting closer and closer to walking. (It’s really okay, I can wait for that to happen.) We’ve been trying to teach him to wave…almost, but not quite yet. Still ticklish as ever…his giggles are too much to handle. And when he smiles you can see his teeny tiny pearly whites. He got three new teeth this past month! Which is good because he loves food. Pretty much out of that soupy baby food and into the good stuff. He loves everything except broccoli. He is such a good little sleeper too, he slept twelve hours, two nights in a row. Any parents dream! Maybe he can teach Eating + Sleeping 101 to his big brother Jax. Ha!
They always say the first year goes by fast…it does, but even faster when you have two little ones. I’m always trying to squeeze in time for an extra kiss or snuggle because my little guy, Casen is getting so big! See his photo here.
He is crawling everywhere. We lowered his mattress in his crib again this weekend because he was hanging onto the railing, standing up! I need eyes in the back of my head to keep up, he’s quick. He will probably be the football player in the fam. I told my husband this morning he was going to be a model because he is always smiling, showing off his one teeny tiny bottom tooth. You’ll see him on tv someday or making someones day brighter for sure.
I love how you can’t fall asleep without your mobile. How you curl your toes. How you always smack your lips when eat your favorite foods. How ticklish you are. Your giggles. Everything.
I am such a proud momma.
Oh Christmas, you went by way too fast, like you always do. It was an overwhelming blast spending time with family this holiday. We played games, built a castle, shopped, went gawking at holiday lawn inflatables, ate cookies, rode in a carriage, made snow globes, and had lots of laughs. So many memories were made.
If you know me, I am bit of a procrastinator. But this year I’m kind of glad I was because late on Christmas Eve, my husband and I were wrapping presents…together, yes together. I just thought to myself, this is just the beginning. Ha! The beginning of pretending to be the guy in red! Oh what parents do. This year Jax thought the our tree in the living room was Christmas and that Santa was going to bring him a spaceship. For Case, it was just another day of not wanting his nose wiped and trying to stand up. Next year, I’m pretty sure we will need a bigger home or at least a toy room.
Hope everyone had a very merry Christmas!
Oh boy…Casen definitely hit a growth spurt this past month. Already trying to crawl…scootin’ backwards and getting up on his knees. Ahh! Too much! And of course, saying ‘dadadadada’ all day long. I keep telling myself that he only said ‘dada’ first because he just misses his dad so much during the day. (ha! okay maybe I’m just a little jealous). I really thought he was going to stay a baby forever, but I am so curious of all the new things he will do, how he will sound when he talks, what his hair will look like when it actually grows…the first year is the best!
Doctor said at his six month checkup that I was doing a great job. That pretty much made my day. Sometimes it just blows my mind that I am responsible for him, what he eats, what he learns…I don’t even know if that make sense but I just can’t explain the feeling. I feel so blessed to be a mom. And Case makes it so easy, so thankful.
We just had our family photos taken last week and he was such a good boy. Sat up by himself and smiled. Those big brown eyes were just glowing as usual. Happiest baby ever. Although, I bet he could win the world record for most spit ups in an hour. Ha!
