You are officially closer to a year old than your BIRTHday. Guess I can start planning your first birthday – MONSTERS maybe? I cannot wait! You did a lot this month. It FLEW by. I’m now officially your care taker and couldn’t be happier! It has been fabulous and I’m loving every minute. I am so thankful to get this time with you and that your dad not only supports it, but encourages it. Speaking of dad! We celebrated Father’s Day last Saturday. You have the BEST daddy for you. I hope you end up just like him. We worked really hard on his Father’s Day gifts. Your Uncle Bubba took some photos of you holding letters that spelled D-A-D. We framed them and it was super cute. You also painted a picture for him. It was beautiful. I thought you were going to eat the paint, but you just smeared it around. I made a photo book of some great pictures of you and your dad. He LOVED it and it’s cool to look at how much you have grown since last November. I got him a heart rate monitor to thank him for all his hard work and partnership in raising you. I’m glad he’s my teammate in parenting. Oh and we tried to put your hand print on a baseball for him, but it turned out terrible…looked like a black smudge on a baseball. Definitely something to try when you’re an infant and can’t refuse.
No doctor’s appointment this month, but weigh about 18 pounds. You’re short and squaty. You wear 6-9 month clothing for the most part, but are nearing more 9 month clothing.
My favorite thing: You are starting to reach up to me! Oh my gosh it’s the greatest thing. And I enjoy your laughing SO much! One thing I wish you did do was cuddle. I try to cuddle you after your feedings or when you’re tired and you don’t want any part of it. You’re very independent 🙂
