We had his one year photos done with Misty a few days after his big day. She did such a great job as always, and even got some good family shots (and our big announcement!) and some nice ones of the kids together. When he got to the cake smash, he needed a little encouragement, but not much! He mad a huge mess and went straight to the bath when we were done. Crashed for a nice long nap afterward, too! I'd like to say this was his first time eating cake/sweets as it was when Audrey turned one, but this poor second child has been getting little sneaks of treats since he was 7 months old. Parenting fail?
He eats like a grown man. I swear every time I turn around he's signing "eat" or "milk", and he's been out-eating Audrey for months. I didn't expect to have to add him in to our food budget so early, but he can eat a whole pork chop by himself if I let him! Must have daddy's metabolism because at his 12 month appointment I think he was only 22 lbs. He's got such a personality now too. A fiery one. He is such a little snuggle bug most of the time, but when he's angry you better watch out. He throws things, hits, yells, and throws tantrums that I did not expect from a just-turned-one year old. He is also a crybaby and can turn on the tears at any moment. He's lucky his crying face is so cute (well, it is to me) because it usually means he gets picked up....which probably only encourages him to throw tantrums more but whatever.
Joshua's first year was so much fun and I can't wait to see him grow over this next year. He's currently in my very favorite stage...the young toddler months. I know he is going to change so much in the coming months and of course I'll be taking a million pictures to document it all. Hopefully I can find time to fill in here, too!
