So he's officially ONE YEAR OLD today. Wow. It's pretty amazing. We just got back from the doctor for his 1 yr physical. He had fun. The doctor tried to explain to him that kids aren't supposed to like the doctor's office so much. He ran in circles and squealed. The doctor gave him a clean bill of health. We're still unsure about the egg allergy, but we're just avoiding eggs for now. He can officially face forward in the car, and he can eat honey. Woohoo! The doctor said he was the friendliest one year old she has seen in a long time. Then the nurse came and gave him shots. He screamed for maybe 5 seconds, and then smiled and waved goodbye to her. I love what a sweetie he is.
So, he's one. He can run, clap, wave, kiss, follow simple commands (get a book, get a diaper, where's the dog, feed mommy, give that to me, or to daddy). He can say dog "da", cat "ta", "mama", "dada", bottle "ba" (although he did say "bottle" very clearly ONCE). He said "abby" once. He calls Grandpa Paul "pa" and Grammy Lin "na" and everything else "bird". He can feed himself and eats everything we offer him. He's eaten everything except honey, shellfish, nuts and eggs. He's smiling all the time and just loves to see people, places, animals, new things, etc. Right now he wants us to carry him a lot - mainly so he can get up higher and see what's up there. It's like he decided he has explored the ground level, and now he wants to know what's up higher. He points to whatever he wants, and takes you to it if you let him. He smiles and laughs all the time. He's a charmer, everyone loves him, he's a big flirt. He's really a pleasure as a son. We're definitely lucky. We love you, Chrisaroo!
