My sweet Preston.... You are 1!

You are actually 13 months now but we will pretend that mommy wrote this on your exact birthday! :)

You have turned into a big boy right before mommy and daddy's eyes. I feel like I blinked and you starting walking and running. Everything a big boy can do, you do!! No more baby here! :(

You adore your mommy and daddy but most of all you love your Parker. You will follow him everywehre. You prefer to play with Parker's toys and you rarely play with any of your "baby toys." Your favorite "toy" right now is mommy's Iphone. Mommy is not so crazy about this but I know that it's just going to get worse. 

You are such a great eater. I can put anything on your plate and you will try it. The only thing I have found so far that you just didn't like was eggs but I am going to keep trying. I am determined to make you a good eater... Unlike that big brother of yours. 

Some of your favorite foods are: 
cereal bars
ALL fruit
veggie sticks
Apple sauce tubes
mac and cheese
cheese toast

You love to drink milk and juice out of a sippy cup. We have stopped giving you bottles. 

Outside is your FAVORITE place to be so mommy is so glad that it's finally getting warm. The move was hard on your sleeping patterns but we are finally back to a good routine. Some days you take a morning nap. It really just depends on what we have going on. You will take an afternoon nap for about 1.5 hours. You go to sleep around 7:30 and wake up between 6:30-7:00 a.m. 

At your 12 month check up you weighed 21 pounds and 6 ounces. You are much smaller than parker was at this age. He weighed almost 24 pounds. 
 You like to watch Mickey Mouse on TV but you won't stay still long enough to watch very much of the episode. You love your passy and your green blanket. You have to have them both to go to sleep. 

You are in size 4 diapers and you wear 12 month and 18 month clothes. 

Your daddy and I just look at each other all the time and just smile... We can't believe we are so lucky to have you! 

Happy 1st birthday, sweet baby boy!
