He hasn't really slowed down since. We have loved watching him grow physically and explore his world. And explore he does. He enjoys being outside most of all and watching cars, trucks, planes, lawnmowers, you name it. If it's loud and moving, he is mesmerized.
He is still prefers Mommy over anyone else if I am in his sight. I hear "mama, mama, mama" all day! Otherwise, he has a happy time with anyone. He copies us all whether is barking with Oscar or yelling with Grey. He nods his little head and says "mmm hmm" when you ask him a question. He is walking everywhere and would prefer if I leave him barefoot. He has eaten so much dirt and chewed on so many rocks I can't keep count. I am thankful he does eat a wide array of regularly ingested foods as well.
I got an email today (one of those that keeps you up on their development) titled "Your Toddler at One Year." He is a toddler. No more baby. THAT made me sad. Grey even mentioned today what a big boy he is. "No more baby Tucker Mama" were his words exactly.
As I mentioned above, it has been a pleasure watching him grow in his first year of life. I took lots of pictures today. (anyone surprised? anyone?) We celebrated from the moment he woke up to the moment he fell asleep both times singing "happy birthday to you" which he thought was just great!
playing at Plaza Fiesta
we had a little ice cream for dessert after dinner. tucker started out with trying to use a spoon on his own and well, you'll see where it went from there!
then he saw a plane
and ended the evening watching mr. chris mow his yard. what better way to end your first birthday!
