Since C has now made it to his first birthday, I've decided to cut myself some slack and take it down a notch with all of his updates. PHEW! Let me just tell you what a relief it is to make these changes as it was getting tough taking all of the daily shots of C. My goal this year is to continue to take photos of C regularly and to hopefully post shorter weekly updates with just some of my favorites from the week.
I seriously went crazy taking photos of C this past year. I often took WAY too many photos (of the same thing) as it is digital after all (yes, I'm smacking my head over the digital comment). Then when it came time to look through all of the photos, I had such a hard time deleting shots and occasionally became overwhelmed with choosing which ones to keep or throw out. So in C's first year alone, I've got about 7,000 photos! Isn't that ridiculous?!? He's so going to hate going through them all one day. This year another goal I have is to be more aware of the shots I'm taking, the reasons for the shots, variety in my shots, and to become more diligent at throwing out the bad ones. It will be hard, but hopefully I won't have another 7,000 photos come next January 1st.
January 1 - 6
Birthday shots with Grandma! When we took her to the airport, he totally started crying when she said goodbye. It was pretty adorable as the timing was perfect, but also super sad.
C, Daddy, and Grandma!
...All About C...
Oh my goodness...my baby is all grown up people! I still can't believe that I have a ONE YEAR OLD! He is such a ham and is so much fun to be around. He is super active and is constantly on the go. He continues to babble more and more and is very expressive. He will nod, shake his head, point, and even stomp his feet to get his feelings across.
Since turning one, C has now officially tried sweets (birthday cupcake) and wasn't a huge fan. Instead, he absolutely loves string cheese and yellow bell peppers. C doesn't ever stop to lay down for a rest, but he has begun to rest his head on different surfaces for just a few moments. It's pretty sweet to see. C continues to love his bath and this week tried to dunk his head in the water. He wasn't so thrilled when he swallowed some though, so hopefully he won't try that one again. C also is a super messy kisser and will come at me with his mouth wide open! It's pretty sweet and maybe just a little bit gross. HA! I love my baby boy!
