First birthday

Unfortunately, nick has been a little grumpy today. I want to just hold and squeeze and love on my brithday boy. He is sure an amazing little baby and I love him so so much! Here are some things about my son on his first birthday:

Quickly learning to turn up his nose at baby food. Still just a crawler, but he's super fast. Knows what he wants. Can play by himself and be happy. Does a sort of hum often when he's crawling around. Makes noises through his nose. I think his first word is mama, but i need to hear it a few more times to be sure. Has red knees and the tops of his feet are constantly black. Loves having a string that keeps his binky with him always. Likes to throw things. Loves bananas, pasta, and meat. Doesn't like to drink out if any sort of container. This worries mommy who is trying to wean. Loves bathtubs and pools but doesn't like splash pads or the ocean. Got daddy's skin- tans instead of burns. Wants to be involved in things going on around him.  Good sleeper most of the time. Already obsessed with the iPad, even though he doesn't actually do anything on it. Has kept his vibrant blue eyes. Completely obsessed with mommy. Doesn't like his car seat. Started objecting to diaper changes. screams when we change his clothes. Frequently tries to pick or scratch off the mole on mom's collar bone. Smiles and claps when anyone says "yay!" Likes giving high fives. Doesn't sit and cuddle but will rest his head on your shoulder for a moment and it's so sweet. Still just has two teeth. Screams like a banshee. Lets us know if he has run out of food by said scream.
