Where has the time gone? We are looking at the quickly approaching date of his first birthday and can't believe it's possible! He is such a little man! He says "Dad" and "Mom" with this tone that demands attention. What happened to Momma and Daddy? Erin at 15 still calls us by those names! His vocabulary is growing as he parrots quite a bit. He says all of our names including Brutus. "Uh-oh" is said quite a bit. "Ball" was added yesterday and that is his favorite toy. Any ball he can toss around and follow is a great source of entertainment especially if he can get someone to pass it back and forth with him. Trucks are quickly becoming favorites as well. He likes the ones he can push as he crawls. On the mobility front, Ty is walking around the house. He's rather wobbly but making progress. He does a better job if he's holding a small toy or one of his little burp clothes that serve as his security blanket. I suppose all those weeks of practicing while holding onto the hem of my shorts made him think he needs to hold something for balance. He is still a very happy boy. He's smiling most of the time and only fussy if he's sleepy or hungry. He sleeps from 8:30pm to 8:30am and naps twice a day for about an hour and a half each. He eats EVERYTHING! The other night we had steak for dinner. I put him in the high chair while I worked on dinner and allowed him some fruit pieces while he waited. As soon as the steak hit his tray, the fruit pieces were immediately tossed to the floor! He had no use for that with steak as an option! He still refuses his sippy cups. I honestly don't know what to do about it. I've tried several versions and allowing him to play with them. I've tried different drinks and even a smoothie at one point. He is not interested. I had all the girls off the bottle by this point but can't eliminate it until he's drinking something else. He doesn't seem to want bottles either but will accept them eventually.....just feed him solid food and life is good.
