What a weekend

Sleepyhead this morning!

The weekends just seem to fly by anymore!! So much to do and Chase loves to be out and about.

Saturday, we had his one year pics, can't wait to see them. I think they are really going to be good, lots of different poses and one of him destroying his cake. Then Jace had his one year bday party that afternoon...he is one day younger than Chase. The boys had fun playing together.

Sunday was Chase's party. Thanks to everyone that could be there and celebrate with us, it really means a lot that you all were there! He liked his cake, but he didn't like getting messy, so he ate it with a spoon!! What a turkey!!

Some new things with him....still taking steps here and there...I know he will just take off one day soon. He really is playing with his shape sorter too and getting the shapes in the slots too. It's neat to see him try and when it doesn't fit, he rearranges it in his hand and tries do they learn this stuff?? He likes to feed himself too and hold the utensils and tries to pick up stuff with the fork and spoon. Granny Stokes gave him a toddler plate, fork and spoon and I swear he played with that for 20 minutes!! He likes to turn the light switches off and on too. He is constantly pointing at stuff and saying "uh" get me that...except we don't know what that is!! He loves playing with matchbox cars too, pushing them around the floor, making noises. At least once a day, it seems Famous and I look at each other and say "Did you see that" or "Watch him" cause we notice something new all the time.
Last night, he slept from 7:30 to 7:15 this sippy at would be great if that wasn't a fluke. Saturday and Sunday morning, he made it to 6 and 6:30 without a sippy too. Hope it continues!! We are pretty excited about that....he is a pretty good sleeper, but has slept like this maybe 5 times total in his first year of life!! Up until last week, he was still getting a sippy at 4 or 5. I am probably jinxing myself as we speak!!
