More Birthday Fun!

Mommy is slowly coming to terms with JJ turning 1 and is finally ready to accept it and post some birthday photos!  We had our family party in Austin on 2/6/11 during the Super Bowl.  On his actual birthday, JJ got to eat a tasty cupcake courtesy of Ana's mom.  JJ also had his 1-year doctor's appointment.  He got FIVE shots and took them like a real champ!  Here's how JJ measures up:

Height: 29.5 inches (50th percentile)
Weight: 20 lbs 8 oz (10-25th percentile)
Head circumference: 46.5 (50-75th percentile)

The pediatrician said he is doing great and is not worried that he's skinny (it's due to all the exercise he gets) or not walking. Now for some party pics!

More interested in trying to grab the flame than blow it out. He'll have it figured out by next year :)

 JJ was a little unsure about the cake. 
But he definitely loved the vanilla ice cream we served with it.

Happy Birthday, JJ!

JJ turned 1 today. We did most of our celebrating yesterday at a combo Birthday/Super Bowl party with JJ's aunt, uncle, and grandparents. Just in the last couple days, JJ has gotten really good at saying mama and dada on command and there's a 50/50 chance he actually understands what he's talking about. JJ opened lots of wonderful presents and experienced the joy of cake and ice cream for the first time. We are heading up to Michigan this weekend for a joint birthday celebration with JJ's cousin, Fiona.

Now let's catch up with a few videos!

JJ was about 11 months old when this one was shot. He loves a good poke in the belly.

We baby-proofed all the cabinets in the kitchen... except for one. JJ hosts a tupperware party at least once a day and everyone is invited.

One of JJ's favorite birthday gifts so far was a tunnel, courtesy of Uncle Jeff.

That's all for now. More coming soon!
