On June 16th, our little baby Paxton had his first birthday. Grandma and Grandpa came down to celebrate with us (and babysit a few times while I went to a cooking class with friends and then Eric and I caught a movie for the first time in years).
We started Pax's birthday celebration with breakfast at Kerby Lane. When it was time for smash cake, he barely wanted to touch it until I cut it up. Once he took the first taste, he really dug in as you can see. He got some really fun presents, which Everett promptly attempted to claim as his own. They've been keeping them BOTH entertained, which is nice since lots of the toys are packed up. I can't wait to see what fun they have when all the toys they haven't seen in months get unpacked!
Pax had his one year well-check recently, and is doing great. He is 50th percentile in weight, and 75th percentile in height. He started walking right around his birthday, and is starting to talk a little more. His words include dada, mama, ed-ay (Everett, which coincidentally is how Ev said his name initially too), ah dah (all done), and once he said ma (more). He is just starting to make new words -- I just don't know what they are yet! And his favorite pastime? Playing the kazoo. It's hilarious and so cute. :)
