Our little guy is not so little anymore. Last week, Remi celebrated his very first birthday!
Not thinking, I scheduled his 12 month check up on his Birthday and he had to get two shots. We made the best of it though and met Matt for lunch afterwards.
I remember saying this about Addy too but if feels like once Remi turned 1, he began to develop and grow at a rapid speed. I love this age where they are beginning to talk and walk and are always learning to do new things.
Remi's development might seem to be coming on even faster since he has a big sister to copy. He wants to do everything she does. He prefers cups and water bottles with straws, wants to use a fork with every meal and if Addy is eating it, he assumes he can eat it too.
Remi is walking really well now and getting faster and faster. He follows us from room to room and loves to walk circles around things. He does a funny little pivot with one foot when he needs to make a sharp turn.
He received several trucks and cars for his birthday and we are excited for him to learn how to play with him. For now, one of his favorite toys is Matt's old phone. He puts it up to his ear and pretends to talk on it.
What up Birthday Boy?
Remi has become quite useful in retrieving our shoes for us, even when we don't need them. He's not satisfied until we've put them on.
But enough rambling. Here are his One Year Old Stats. I've done this with Addy at each Birthday and I'm excited to continue the tradition with Remington.
AGE: 1 year old
WEIGHT: 17.95 pounds
HEIGHT: 29 inches
FAVORITE FOOD: Grapes and Blueberries
FAVORITE TOY: One of Dad's old phones
FAVORITE ACTIVITY: Throwing balls and "painting" in the backyard
SCARED OF: Balloons (one popped in our living room and he avoids them at all costs now)
DISLIKES: Reading books
BEST FRIEND: Addy and he LOVES his cousin Carter
WORDS: "ball," "baa!" (boo) and "dada"
SILLY TENDENCY: He likes to play peek a boo with waiters and people at restaurants. He says "baa!" as they walk by and then chuckles to himself like "ha! I got 'em!" It makes us laugh every time.
Happy Happy Birthday Remington! We love you!
