Ben, last weekend you turned ONE, and I just cannot wrap my head around it! Seriously...how did this happen?? You have brought such joy to our lives, and we love you so very much. Every day you get a little bigger and that fun little personality starts peeking through more and more. We find ourselves laughing at you constantly...and you like to laugh at yourself too!
At your one year appointment, you weighed 22 pounds, 7 ounces, and you were 30 inches long.
You are definitely a growing boy. You are a human vacuum cleaner and will pretty much eat anything...as long as you don't see something better. If you do, you start throwing the offending food over your shoulder as fast as possible to make room for what you like.
You are wearing 12-18 month cloths and taking two naps a day.
You did really well transitioning from bottle to sippy cup...although you still really prefer for someone to hold it for you. But you will do it if you have to!
Now that you crawl, you are a machine. You have gotten really fast. You also wiggle your bottom side to side as you are crawling when you get really excited. You also think it's hilarious to crawl in circles and to crawl backwards.
You love to chase bouncy balls around. And throw the magnets on the fridge. Far.
You are pretty obsessed with your daddy. And your brother. And your brother's toys.
You have started waving bye bye and saying it, too.
You have also started saying Max...but it sounds like Mah because x is hard!

Oh Mr. Max. You are quite the character. You keep me laughing all day every day...unless you are making me pull my hair out. You have such a funny personality, and you know exactly how you want things done (aka: we are working on your bossy tendencies). You may be a little bossy, but you are also extremely sweet, polite, and hilarious. I just thought I'd write down a few conversations and things that have made me laugh in the past couple of months.
Upon pulling into the car line for Mother's Day Out
Max: Mommy, am I going to school?
Max: (sighs) Oh, dang it.
When the UPS man leaves a delivery
Max: We have a package!
(Tries to pick it up)
Max: It's heavy. I need my sweat bands.
Max: I wear my big boy underwear
Me: Ok, that means you go potty in the big boy potty
Max: Oh. I wear my diaper.
A few other things:
You love the number 35. We don't know why, but it's the answer to everything. Anything you measure is 35. What time is it? 35. What's my temperature? 35.
Speaking of measuring, you love a good tape measure. You pull out the tape and look at the numbers and say, "Hmmm...what time is it?"
Chicken "nunnets" and ranch are your favorite meal.
You have gone past the word "no" to "never!" I'm sure you got it from a cartoon, but you sound very passionate when you say it. You really emphasize the never...ha!
Ok...little dude. That's cool.
