Our sweet baby turned one in May! He is so much fun right now! I feel like this first birthday is such a milestone for all of us. We have been so blessed to have Greyson in our family. He is constantly making us smile and laugh, even at such a young age he has an amazing personality. I sure love this age. I love watching my baby boy learn and grow. He is such a smart boy. He understands so much of what we say and has quite a few words that he says already. A few words he are Daddy, binky, bottle, ball, catch, hi, hold you, and I'm sure there are more that I'm forgetting! He is also getting(staying) so big! His 12 month stats:
Greyson loves to run around with Asher, he loves to play peek a boo, he loves Daddy and Mommy, he loves to eat, he loves balls, especially throwing and chasing them around the house. He's super social and carefree. He loves playing in the water, especially the splash pad. He'll run right into the water screaming and laughing and will stay in there longer than any of the other kids. He doesn't even mind that the water is freezing. He is totally fearless. He is fun loving and is almost always happy and smiling. He's also very independent and would rather be running around than being held. He's also very sweet though and will happily give cuddles. Everyday when Tim gets home from work Grey runs straight to the door and gives him a huge smile and hug.
We celebrated his birthday by opening gifts with our little family first thing in the morning, and then an extended family party in the afternoon. He is lucky to have so many people who love him! We were worried we would have to cancel his party because Greyson, Asher and I all had hand, foot and mouth disease just before his birthday. Luckily, his rash was gone just in time and we had such a fun day with him! He loved opening his presents and tearing the wrapping paper off. Unfortunately, he hated the cake. He ate a few bites, then wiped it all over his face and hair and then cried. It wasn't exactly we expected from a baby who loves eating!
A couple of weeks later we were able to celebrate with my Dad and Leslie and Mathis, Keaton and Ryan. Leslie made Greyson the cutest giraffe cake!
