~You wear size 4 diapers, 12-18 month clothes, and just outgrew your 9-12 month shoes.
~Your favorite game continues to be catch. When you see a ball (or anything semi round!), you race over and throw it as far as possible. You also love to sort blocks and put things into/out of containers, etc. Your favorite place to 'sort' is the pantry. No worries, I love reorganizing every single day! :)
~You say da-da, ma-ma, and ee-ee (Lily).
~You race up the stairs to play in the toy room, climb onto the couch, and try to climb up onto our (tall!) bed. You love to wrestle. You are very physical and constantly on the move.
~You are still the best snuggler. You also give hugs on demand, especially to your sister.
~The happiest part of your day is when Daddy gets home. The moment you hear him, you race as fast as you can, squealing, and pulling on his leg for him to pick you up. You then give him one of your famous hugs. You definitely prefer Daddy over Mommy if given the choice.
~You suck on two fingers and love to cuddle with your blanket. You go to bed around 7pm and sleep until 6:30 or 7am. You take two naps a day, but I am in the process of transitioning to one in order to work around Lily's preschool schedule (the life of a second child).
~You have four teeth (two top, two bottom) and I keep thinking two more will pop through any day.
~You cruise furniture and are a crazy fast crawler, but have not taken any unsupported steps. Just this week, you are starting to show interest in standing up by yourself and walking while holding onto my hands.
~You continue to be a good eater. Recent favorites include ham, peas, string cheese, and mac and cheese.
~We laugh that you might not be a smart as your sister, as we are terrible about reading you books. You are so squirmy, you never sit still long enough to get through even the shortest books!
~We love you more than words and are so thankful you joined our family a year ago. Your laughs, your smiles, and your sweet personality make each one of us so very happy. Happy Birthday, William Tommy!
