Happy twelve months (one year!) to our sweet Jacob!
Jacob is officially one year old. A toddler! He continues to be consistent with sleep. His bath is from 7:30-8:00, and he splish splashes with dad every night. He then goes his bedtime routine complete with lotion and snuggles/bottle, and is usually asleep by 8:15/8:30. His dad leads the nighttime routine, and enjoys snuggling and bonding with Jacob.
He is INCREDIBLY active. He takes swimming lessons, and the spring edition of his music/dance class begins again in a week or two. He's taken swimming lessons for six months now, and it's paying off - he LOVES the water! He crawls incredibly fast - look out, world! - and took his first step on March 13th. On March 16th, he took four steps in a row - and has continued to do that every day since.
Jacob can eat just about anything (except honey and legumes). He loves yogurt, crackers, chicken, and oranges. He had whole milk for the first time on March 5, and continues to get about two ounces of whole milk in every bottle. He eats table food for 2 meals a day, plus two snacks. He loves "pouches" (fruit/vegetable combinations served in pouch form) and much prefers to feed himself. (We primarily follow the Baby Led Weaning technique for most table food).
Jacob can clap (and say "clap"), he drinks out of a sippy cup on his own. He waves, goes "lalalala" intentionally. He LOVES peek-a-boo.
He had his first serving of SUGAR (cupcake) for his first-birthday party and LOVED it. (#sweettooth) He loves balloons, and people, and being outside.
Jacob, I've said it before and I'll say it again: you are a JOY. The best joy of my life. I am honored to be your mama. Happy, happy birthday, sweet boy.
