Micah is ONE!

My sweet little Micah, you are officially 1 year old! Your birthday was a few weeks ago and I am late as usual updating. You have grown and changed so much and we love you more and more each day, which just doesn't seem possible!!

You are the sweetest, cuddliest, most scrumptious, (not-so-little anymore) baby boy out there. You love your mama and it makes me feel so good when only I can make things all better. You get super excited though when you hear Daddy coming in from work. You go over to the door, clap your hands, and yell "Dada!" over and over until he comes in. You adore your brother and sister and can officially hold your own. I've seen you and Landon go for the same stuff and it's getting close to an even match! You are one tough little cookie dealing with big bro and sis.

Your vocabulary is increasing and you love to point at everything to get us to say the word for you. You stare at our mouths and can usually say the word too. You are also very polite and say thank you for everything you're given. You are very curious and into everything. Unfortunately this means you usually have a bruise or something on your forehead. As of right now, "Uh oh" is your most commonly used word. You are walking everywhere now (as of 11.5 months) since you've decided crawling is for little babies. You do a great job but still fall every once in awhile which does not make you very happy. You love to push cars around the house and say "vrrooom" and read books, too. You love being outside and playing and riding bikes, too.

Bathtime is still your favorite and you could play with water all day long. Your favorite thing to watch is Bubble Guppies as you say "bubble" over and over again. You still love to dance and bounce to Chris Tomlin's "God's Great Dance Floor." 

You were Tigger for Halloween and had a great time!
 You love playing with the nativity while your brother and sister decorated the tree.
 You had your first snow! You loved it and discovered how very cold it was!

You still don't have much hair but personally I think balder babies are cuter. Your eyes are blue and your hair is blonde, very similar to your brother, except your lashes are a bit lighter. You still only have 8 teeth which is unfortunate since you can't eat steak yet! You eat whatever we eat, as well as some baby food, applesauce, or yogurt to fill you up. You love milk and apple juice too. I officially weaned you last week at 12.5 months which was very bittersweet. You seemed like you could go on nursing for a long time but it was about time to stop. I'm very proud that you never had any formula your first year and I officially have over 3 years of breastfeeding under my belt and 3 super healthy, smart, lean children. Daddy enjoys putting you to bed now, as he has started his tradition of reading Goodnight Moon to you and then giving you milk, like he did with your brother and sister.

You are in 12-18 month clothes, size 4 diaper, and whatever shoes you will keep on. You had your 12 month check up recently and you are officially slimming down now (which is kind of sad in a way, but you are a toddler on the move!) You weighed 22 lbs. 6 oz. (44 %) and were 29 3/4 in. tall (50%). You head was 18 in. (30%). You got some rough shots which resulted in a super high fever the next week which happened to be Thanksgiving. You hit 104.6 degrees which almost made Mommy and Daddy panic! Medicine worked and you were fine. Apparently you are going to be like your sister and always run high fevers.

You also got to turn around in your carseat! This is very exciting for you and you can even see the DVD player much better.

Here are a few 1 year pictures. You had a great time with your cake smash.

Pictures from your birthday party with family. Again, you destroyed your cake and had fun opening your presents.

Here's a video of you when you first started walking.

You've come a long way since then, in such short time!

I will be posting your first year video/slideshow very soon! Happy birthday, sweet Micahbear. We love you SO MUCH!!
