One Year Old (and smash cake pictures)

Semmes is one today!  Happy birthday!  He is 23 pounds and 28.5 inches.  25th-50th percentile for weight, 10th for height, and 90th percentile for head circumference. He takes one (on really good days two) nap a day and sleeps eleven-twelve hours overnight.  He still nurses 4-5 times a day and eats three full meals of solid food and usually a snack.  He LOVES to eat.

He likes baths, books (The Very Hungry Caterpillar is his new favorite), this John Deere farmer he carries around everywhere, any ball he can get his hand on, and Leffe.  He is still OBSESSED with Leffe.

He's walking everywhere.  He started walking about three weeks ago.  He can now plant one foot and pivot to turn around.  He can go from laying on his back all the way to standing and walking without pulling up on something.  No real words yet, but he "talks." A lot.  And he has found his loud, outside voice.  He knows his name, what no means, and what "dog" is.  He also likes to bring you things.  This is actually really helpful when he gets something he's not supposed to have.  He'll just toddle over and hand it to you.

He is ticklish everywhere: tummy, knees, the bottom of his feet, etc.  He gets mad if you take something away or tell him no.  And he throws epic, lay on the floor and sob, temper tantrums occasionally.  On the other hand, after he wakes up from a nap, he loves to hug and snuggle for a few minutes before he starts playing.  Cutest thing ever.

See the farmer he's holding?  Loves that thing.

Yesterday, we did smash cake pictures.  I thought he would LOVE cake.  Have you seen this kid eat?  But no.  He really wasn't into it.  But at least we got some really good pictures!!! 

First, we took some in his birthday outfit.

The cake:

I found this really cute plate that totally matched the color scheme.  And what does Semmes do?  Immediately dump the cake off of the plate. 

Yay!  No more plate!

He was more interested in the birthday hat (that he refused to wear) than in the cake.

I finally just tore a chunk off so he'd eat some.

We even had to manufacture the icing on the leg because he was just so neat!

It was a fun afternoon.  I just can't believe he's already one!

Not surprised about the plate thing...he's used to eating right off the high chair tray! Must've really been confused by the cake on the cute! Wishing Semmes a super year!
