Well, here we are – 1 year! I sound like a broken record but, where did the time go?
Maxwell at 1 year…
These boys do not look alike…but they sure do love each other!
Spencer is joyful, giggly and just jolly. Don’t get me wrong, he can get mad when he doesn’t get what he wants, but all in all he’s a happy little thing. He’s still a great sleeper taking a morning nap around 9:00 and an afternoon nap around 2:00. However, he’s about to give up that morning nap…some days he’ll just play in there until 10:30 before finally falling asleep! We put him to bed around 7:30 and he sleeps until around 7am the next morning. This kid doesn’t want much rocking or snuggling before bed. If you try to, he’ll just try to play! So, I just lay him in the bed wide awake, give him a little pat and walk out the door. He’ll play for a bit and then go on to sleep!
Every day is a food adventure. I’m trying to give him all kinds of new things and he’s liking most of them. I gave him spaghetti for the first time last week and he gobbled it up. Pretty much all fruits are winners and he loves cheese quesadillas like his brother! He should be a good eater with the 6 teeth he already has! As of last week, I’m finally weaning him…refer to previous comment about the teeth! 🙂 I’ve cut him down to nursing only in the morning and am slowly replacing his mid-day and afternoon bottles with formula and then will transition to whole milk soon.
He still hasn’t attached to a particular lovey but he does love his pacis. I try not to let him have them all the time when he’s up because I’d rather hear his sweet babbles of dada and mama. Ok, not really mama yet but I can wish! 🙂
He’s not walking yet but he is cruising up and down the couch. I’m sure he’ll be balancing on his own in no time.
Last pics with Bear Bryant!
I just love this baby. This snuggly, perfect little baby boy.
Happy one year sweet Spencey!! We love you!
On that note, wave bye-bye to the monthly photos!
See you tomorrow!
