I made it – I am officially ONE!!
Mummy and Daddy both got me up this morning and were very excited and telling me “Happy Birthday!!” I don’t exactly know what that means but it sounded like fun! Before breakfast, Mummy gave me a cool frog prince pillow pouch. The tag said “PJ holder/Pillow” but it just seems like a soft frog pouch to me. We practiced putting things “in” and taking them “out.” I am getting pretty good at “in” and “out!” Then Mummy made me a special treat for breakfast – French toast! I loved it 🙂 I also had some cereal with fruit and milk. We played for a long time before I had to go to school so Mummy and Daddy could do some work.
I had a fun day a school and even took a better than usual nap. Not longer than usual (only about 40 min), but I slept solid instead of waking up every 10 min like I’ve been doing at school. When Mummy and Daddy came to pick me up I was playing with my group of friends and having a great time. I was so tired and was really hoping to go home and take a nice, long nap, but we went to see Dr. Knott. I’ve been seeing him a lot lately…I was even there last week. I’ve had some ear infections and some fluid in my ears so we get them checked a lot. This time my ears were looking better and I was 100% healthy 🙂 I had to have a little block stick (on my toe) but I did not even notice it…not a teeny flinch or anything!!
I also got me height and weight measured again and I am still growing. I am now 32.5 inches tall, which is just off the top of the growth chart. I weigh 25 lbs and 3 oz, which is the 75-90th%. I have thinned out a bit since my last visit when I was in the 90-95th%, but that is to be expected as I’ve been so much more busy lately. I am still a super eater, I just hurry up and get back to playing now. I am also napping less so I burn a whole lot more calories. I’m still a big guy!
When we got home I finally got to take a little nap – hooray!! While I napped, Mummy made me my favorite dinner – spinach risotto! She even added some carrots and mushrooms which I love too. I had some black olives, bread and cheese that I got to feed myself. All my favorites – spinach, olives and cheese – all in one meal!! I ate a LOT for dinner and Mummy and Daddy took lots and lots of photos.
After dinner I got a cupcake with a candle! Mummy and Daddy sang “Happy Birthday” and Mummy helped me blow out my candle (quickly because I wanted to touch it). Then I got the whole cupcake all for me!! I LOVED it and ate a lot of it. Nicholas was right next to me and I shared some with him too. I love when he licks my fingers – it makes me laugh.
Here is a video of me with my birthday cupcake:
After dinner, I got another present – blocks from one of Mummy’s co-workers. They were great!! I loved banging them together and throwing them. I played with them for a while until I finally pooped out and got to have a bottle (a very small one after such a big dinner) and go to sleep. What a fun day!!
Here are photos from my birthday:
