12 Months

I'm 12 months old already?!
Well how about that.
Height: 30 1/2 inches (72%)

Things to Remember:
-You love Mexican food! Burritos, quesadillas...pretty much anything with a cheese & tortilla and you're happy.
-You run. Daddy has trained you to take off in a sprint and it scares Mommy to death. Be careful, big boy!
-You've perfected the fake laugh. Anytime other people are laughing, you want to join in on the fun and laugh the heartiest, yet fakest, chuckle. It's so funny!
-You love bath time. You have for a few months, but this month especially it's been harder and harder to pry you out of the tub.

-You are happiest outside. Which kind of stinks because it's been really cold the last few weeks and all you want to do is play in the leaves. We can't wait to take you camping and do all kinds of outdoor activities when it warms up!
-You are in size 4 1/2 shoes, 4 diapers, & 18 month clothes.

-You desperately need a haircut, but Mommy doesn't want that to happen :(. Not yet! Daddy does, though, and his case was justified when the lady checking us out at HEB today called you a "precious baby girl". Ummmm hello Cool Cuts. We'll be seeing you soon.
-You says "ba" (ball), Mama, Dada, and bye bye.
-You had two not so fun Santa Claus experiences; here's hoping you like Mr. Claus next year!
I'm in serious shock that our baby boy is a year old. Almost 13 months, actually (this post is late!). The past year has been the most amazing adventure; being this boy's Mommy is a dream beyond what I ever could've imagined. We have our rough days of teething, and our occasional 3am wake-up calls, but all of that fades away the second those blue eyes look into mine and say "Mama". Oh sweet boy, there is no greater joy that being your Mama. We love you, Bear Clayton.
