It's been the most fascinating thing to watch him grow and discover the world around him. Always our little chatterbox, he's full of things to say and has been since he was but a few weeks old. Perhaps one day he'll be a great orator, but for now his cute little voice jabbering away is simply music to our ears.
One Day Old
One Day Old
First word: Gobbum-- noun-- usually used in reference to good food, or food in general since he's never really been picky. Fine, so it's not an actual word, but one of his own vocabulary, but still...he uses it with specificity. Other words: Da-da; ma-ma; gog (dog and most other animals); hruh (truck)
Number of States Visited in 1 year: 4 (Nevada, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia) including 4 trips on an airplane. Pretty well traveled for a year old, thank you Delta Air Lines.
Number of teeth by 1st birthday: 3 and a half (the latest one is being fairly pokey about coming in.)
Disposition: Generally happy unless you're wiping his nose, which thanks to another cold is happening a lot this week.
He's strong-- every diaper change is a wrestling match. He's smart-- quickly figures out how his toys work. He's our little super-Talan. This has definitely been our best year so far and we're all the more excited for those yet ahead.
I'll try to post a couple videos of his birthday today. Together, they're a little long, so it will take some time to upload...and at this point it's late and I'm tired, so more to come.
Happy Birthday buddy. We love you!
