Cody is 12 Months - Wow!

Yay! We made it to one year! Hard to believe that Cody is one! He is such a toddler now and we are having so much fun with him! We love to take him on adventures and show/teach him things! He is hilarious and definately keeps us laughing. He loves to say "mmmm" while he's eating. My mom taught him to do that and he now does it all the time. Yesterday he did it in the grocery store when I was on the baby isle buying some things. It was as if to say "mmmm, buy that mommy". He eats well and we are always trying new things with him. He loves fruit...grapes, blueberries, watermelon, bananas, peaches, strawberries and pears are his favorite. He continues to like the same foods as before but now we can add peanut butter and eggs to that list. It takes him a couple times to decide if he really likes something but once he figures out its good he'll eat it up. He's also getting used to textures. I still give him a few things in the jarred food for variety while he's still getting used to meats. He loves vegetables from the jars as well but is still getting used to the textures of the "real thing". He has 3 meals a day and 2 snack times. He likes to sit in his high chair for both meals and snacks. Cody mastered the stairs on his birthday! He still likes to play on them from time to time but not too interested in them. We haven't put up a gate on the stairs, we just block it when necessary but for the most part he doesn't beg to play on them. Cody pulls up on everything and can stand holding onto something with one hand. He knows how to sit on his bottom to get down and doesn't lose his balance very much anymore. He plays with his toys and still loves anything that is loud and makes noise (like bouncing a small plastic ball on the tile). He pushes his cars/trucks around and likes to watch the wheels turn. He makes all sorts of noises with his mouth while he's playing. He absolutely LOVE cups and anything he can stack inside each other. This entertains him for long periods of time. When we go out to eat we have to bring him his own cup or ask for a cup because he begs for ours the whole time. As long as he has a cup he'll sit and let us eat. Cody will put his arm out and reach for anything he thinks he wants...whether it's possible to get or not (like a ceiling fan or car). He knows how to point when he sees something. He knows how to give a "high 5" but doesn't always do it when asked. He can wave hi/bye. He says momma, dada, ba (for bye we think). He copies any noise we make...coughs, sneezes, clicks with our tongue or lips or noises with our voice. He listens and then tries to copy us. Cody is wearing 12 month clothes and size 4 diaper. He weighs 20 pounds (20%) He is 29 1/2 inches tall (50%) His head is 18.7 inches (90%)
He sleeps all night and takes 2 naps during the day.
Cody is a very sweet boy with a definate opinion of what he wants/needs. He will cuddle for very short periods but otherwise he is busy busy busy!
This first year flew by so quickly! We love being Cody's mommy and daddy and can't wait to see what memories his 2nd year holds.
