my 1 year old

oh how time FLIES when you're having fun! i feel like this last year has been one CRAZY, busy, FUN, exhausting, BLESSING! everyone told me that having 2 so close together would be hard the first year (and i have to say i had some hard days & many fun great days as well).... so i'm now looking forward to it getting easier. now that beckham is walking, i think it will be a little easier since i won't have to carry him everywhere. :)
my 1 year old is SUCH A BLESSING. God knew what he was doing when he gave me beckham - he is a great napper and sleeper (except this week when he decided to practice walking in his crib at 1 AM!!). he is a SWEET boy that is for sure. he loves his mama and his daddy..... in fact, he's starting to turn into a daddy's boy. :) he is very easy going and will just watch everyone and everything around him - that is until you take something dangerous away from him. then, his other personality emerges and it is an all out fit! :) he is not afraid of anything - he crawls up and over everything. he can make it up the stairs all by himself and wants to go down on his tummy which we don't let him do! he wants to do everything his big brother court does and doesn't understand why he can't ( i have a feeling this is going to happen for the next 20 years!). he is our precious gift from GOD and we are so thankful for him.
here are some pics from his first year and some of my favorite things!

1) he says "dada, momma, mameeeeeeeee"

2) he can sign "all done" - that's really the only one i've worked on with him (i've got to get better at that!)

3) he can tell you how old he is - if you ask him, he'll hold up one finger

4) he loves to blow kisses
5) he loves to wave hi and goodbye

6) he loves to snuggle before and after sleeping while sucking on his 2 favorite fingers

7) he crawls REALLY FAST - especially if he hears the bathroom door open or the refrigerator door open

8) he loves to dance, shake his booty (which he'll do on command), do the twist, and clap!

9) he loves to laugh at his big brother - court is really good at making him giggle

10) he loves when court gives him "raspberries"

11) he loves when daddy comes home from work - he crawls really fast all the way to him and then i can't take him from his daddy the rest of the night - he turns straight into a daddy's boy!

12) he LOVES to play outside: in the sand, on the riding toys, in the swing.... anything and everything.... he is ALL BOY!!!

and  here are some other pics from his birthday!
 this boy loves his cake!

 court did such a great job helping beckham open his presents
very interested in all the new toys
.....AND..... we're done..... nap time anyone?!?!?

Happy Birthday Beckham! From 1 mom with 2 kids so close together to another....How do we do it!?! But it is so incredibly rewarding. Whitney is starting to recognize Wyatt and everytime she see's him her face lights up! That's the best!

He's such a cutie...I can't believe this year has already gone by. I think they get quicker every year! It won't be long before your living room becomes a wrestling favorite words, "STOP touching your brother, you on one couch, you on the other!" Five minutes later, one is on the ground, the other on top of him! OH...BOYS!!!
