One Year...and 13 Months...and Other Happenings

Many of you know how late I am in posting about Felix's first birthday and some of you have even yelled at me for it!  This has been a busy month, but I'm not going to make excuses...I'm just going to celebrate my now over 13 month old!  (WARNING: This is a VERY picture intensive post.)

I can't believe this was over a month ago already!

Felix's birthday celebration at daycare

And here he is at 13 months...

Felix (as well as Scott and I) had a wonderful time at his birthday party.  It was so great to see everyone who was able to make it.  Many of you were missed and we hope to see you soon!  Regardless of who was able to make it, everyone was so generous.  Felix is lucky to have you all in his life. And I promise you all that our thank yous are in the midst of being completed and will be to you all soon!  In the meantime, here are some pics from King Felix's fabulous party:

 Candy Bar!

 The Colonial Tavern did such an amazing job!




Everyone was so generous!!

The day after his party, Felix got some much needed time with his cousin, Grayson, Grandma, Pepere, Aunt Nicole, Uncle Dan, Aunt Michelle and Uncle Alan!

 Playing in the ball pit!

Recent happenings:

Felix weighed in (right after his first birthday) at 22 lbs and 29.5 inches. 
Felix has been testing his boundaries more and more over the last month.  He has taken to hitting and full on temper tantrums (i.e., kicking and screaming face down on the floor).  This week was better then last week, so he may have had more teething pain then usual during that time.  We began instituting time outs when it first began, but have since opted for a different tactic: holding both of his hands, looking him in the eye and saying "no, thank you" (consistent with what is said at daycare) and then sitting him in the middle of the room and walking away (ignoring the behavior).  We've just started this new plan of action, so we'll see how it turns out.  

Felix now knows how to high five and wave.

He now says Momma and Dadda and I'm pretty sure almost said "Book" the other day.

Felix has a new favorite face...

Felix's food exposure keeps growing.  He now eats whatever we're having for dinner (LOVED stuffed salmon for dinner tonight and YAY for no shellfish allergies!).  I've been trying to broaden the types of food I give him for breakfast, lunch and snacks as well.  As far as the breastmilk, he is on all whole cow's milk in the morning and mid morning, but still gets half breastmilk/half whole cow's milk at night (only because I still have a frozen stash and it's so good for him).  We're almost through it all, so I imagine he'll be on all cow's milk within the next couple of weeks.

Felix finally got his first haircut.  We waited as long as we could, but it was starting to look really ratty.  He looks so much older now!

And FINALLY, we have a walker people!!  Video to come soon!
