A little late, this is the last monthly post I will be doing for Oliver. The next one will be at two years! At 12 months, Oliver…
:: Is walking! Not for very long, as crawling gets him where he wants to go much faster, but he is venturing further and further on two feet.
:: Makes the best noises when he and Charlie get all silly and “tackle” each other on our bed.
:: Has six teeth.
:: Enjoyed celebrating his first birthday at the park.
:: Was very serious about his first birthday cake. He ate the entire thing like it was his job.
:: Wants to be outside. If our front door opens he is bolting over to it like a cat.
:: Wants to eat ALL the rocks.
:: Is a huge fan of smoothies.
:: Figured out how to play Charlie’s bongo drum.
:: Figured out how to climb up on (and sit on) Charlie’s tractor.
:: Figured out how to climb up on the rocking chair and rock back and forth.
:: Figured out how to make me paranoid that we are going to end up in the hospital before the month is out because oh my goodness this child climbs.
:: Is fascinated by dogs and cats. I think he wants to ride them.
:: May also say “dog” as his first real word (possibly already has).
:: Has a new favorite bathtime game of handing things to whoever is on the outside of the tub, grinning, and then waiting for you to drop it back in the water.
:: Has more curls. They are super cute.
