13 Months Old

Dear Tyson:

You're 13 months old today! I know we say it all the time, but it's hard to believe you could possibly be this old already. You are an absolute joy in our lives. Mama and Daddy love you so much that we can hardly wait to see you when you wake up in the morning. We almost always go in together to see you after you wake up because it's just so cute! Even if you wake up crying, you smile as soon as you see us peeking in through the doorway.

You are so busy right now that it is hard to keep you in any one place. You have to touch everything and you are constantly moving--walking, running, crawling, climbing--however you can move you do. The past few nights have been challenging to get you to even calm down long enough for a wagon or stroller ride. We can hardly get you to sit still long enough to eat a meal. Speaking of eating, you love to eat! You are still a pretty picky eater, but as long as we give you some of your favorites, you're happy. Right now, you love waffles, yogurt, cheese and bananas. You are not a fan of veggies, but sometimes Mama finds ways to trick you into eating them. You've only been drinking whole milk for about a month, but you get so excited everytime you see a cup of milk!

You like to play with your toys, especially the soccer and basketballs that Great Aunt Susan and Great Uncle John gave you for your birthday. Containing you has been quite challenging for Mama and Daddy. We're rethinking the babyproofing plans on a daily basis because everyday you get into something new. We know we can take you outside to our new patio to run around and you'll stay on the concrete. You still don't like playing or walking in the grass.

Finally you're growing into all of your cute 12-18 month summer clothes. You look so handsome in your polo shirts and plaid shorts. :) Speaking of summer, we're having fun so far with much more in store! You went swimming for the first time and you really liked it. You also took a day roadtrip to Chicago. We had a good time playing on Sean and Amber's rooftop deck. It was like a giant play area just for little boys! The only part of the trip that you did not appreciate was the amount of time you had to spend in your carseat. Even having Mama accompany you in the backseat for a while did not make you happy. But, as soon as we gave you your milk, all was right again your world.

We can't wait to see what adventures the next month will bring, but we know it will be fun. Happy 13 monthday little man!

Love, Mama and Daddy
