Well, Wyatt had his first birthday about a week ago. Isaac's parents came in town for the birthday weekend. Lucky for us, they brought our adorable niece, and Wyatt's cousin, Leila! She is such a happy baby and is such a joy to be around. Just look at how cute she is in these next few photos.
Leila loves to clap, especially when she sees that the adults around her are getting excited about something.
I made a Texas Sheet Cake for my Texan baby!
Wyatt and his parents. You can see that Wyatt already dug his little fingers into the cake.
"Um, I think I like cake."
Wyatt pretty much ate his whole piece of cake. He was a little energetic afterward.
Our messy Wyatt then got to take a bath. Wyatt loves the bath so he was on cloud nine; cake and a bath!
Wyatt is such a joy! He is walking along furniture and is trying to stand on his own. We think he will start to walk in the next few months. Wyatt loves to crawl throughout the house and open all the cupboards. He loves to open and close doors. I call him a gentleman because he always gets the door for me when we are walking out of a room. Wyatt also takes a lot of pride in his ability to turn out the lights and fan in the bathroom. He smiles at himself in the mirror as he watches himself turn off the lights when we leave the bathroom after he has had a bath. Wyatt can wave hi and bye, say "Dada" and "Mama" (though it isn't directed at us yet), and clap his hands. Wyatt is also working on blowing kisses. Wyatt finally loves to cuddle. For the longest time, Wyatt never wanted to cuddle with us but now he can sit still and snuggle up. Nothing is better than having your baby cuddle up next to you. Wyatt can also give kisses when we ask him for one, but he sticks out his tongue so it can be kind of shocking. Wyatt is such a good tempered child and I feel so lucky to be his mom and see him grow.
Happy Birthday to my sweet Wyatt!
