You are one! Happy birthday, little love! We are so in awe at how quickly this year has flown by and we are so happy that you've been a part of our family for one whole year!
Your twelve month doctor visit isn't until next week, so I don't have any statistics on your weight or height, yet. You are fitting into 12 month clothes great, and seem like a giant in general, so I'm excited to know how big you actually are!
You continue to be a bit of a wild card when it comes to sleep and temperament. You love to be on the go, no walking yet, and hate being restricted from dangers. You take a great morning nap, but prefer to host raves in your crib instead of an afternoon nap. Silly little one.
Judes, you are a momma's boy to the core, which I love! But, you love any attention you can get. You also aren't shy to yell at someone who doesn't pay you the attention you deserve! You love snuggles, and dancing, and clapping! Your favorite toys are musical, or stuffed animals. You have a bunny that you sleep with and your face lights up when I give it to you at bedtime. So so precious.
Your mother has fallen off the bandwagon of transitioning you to whole milk and sippy cups, we will get there eventually. Eating is your favorite pastime, you now have 3.5 teeth to nom with and I haven't found anything you dislike yet! Favorites include: yogurt, sweet potatoes, bananas, cheerios, hash browns, and eggs! You had chocolate birthday cake last night, and loooooooved it!
Baby Jude, you are so loved and adored! Watching your eyes sparkle is one of my favorite things. We are having so much fun getting to know you and your sweet, high strung personality. I'm so very glad that God made you to be our Jude Monroe! I hope you always love to snuggle and dance!
Love you forever, and ever,
