Everett is quite the character.
Lately, instead of smiling he will just stick his chin out and squint his eyes. It's hilarious.
Sometimes he fights his naps like a ninja.
His body is always cracking and popping.
Practically slides down the stairs now.
He’s been a much better eater and sooo much sweeter the last few weeks.
He loves to be sung to. His FAVORITE song is Happy Birthday! (I ran out of songs and started singing Happy Birthday a few months ago. He smiles every time. I have a feeling he will like birthdays as much as I do!)
New favorite food is Ramen noodles with shredded cheddar cheese.
LOVES the Kids Klub at the gym.
Still lights up like a Christmas tree when he sees a dog.
His pooper works for the most part. He still has some internal problems that we are trying to figure out.
He's in love with dirt.
Favorite sport: climbing. The stairs, the couch, us... anything he could possibly climb up.
Thinks that the tv remote is a toy. He records shows all of the time... like choo choo soul and other shows we have never even heard of. They just show up on our DVR!
For his birthday we went to the Dr. for his one year check up. He did so good. He is 30 inches long (55%), Weighs 23 pounds (50%), and his head is 19 inches (93% apparently he has a very large brain!). The doctor noticed that Everett is a sensitive little guy (which I already knew because I am super sensitive too) and he told me that I need to play hardball a little. I should make Everett a plate of food and if he doesn't eat it... then he can just go hungry. I thought that it was a little harsh for such a young age but he said that I need to start taking control. Of course we talked about other things too, but mostly that I need to toughen up a little (or a lot!).
Then our pregnant nurse went into labor. What a good day to have a baby!! Later Everett got his shots and some pretty sweet bandaids:
We came home and made some frosting for his birthday cake.
