FAMILY: 12 Months

My baby is one!  Does that mean he's not a baby anymore?  He's still very much a baby to me although he has changed so much in the last month.  I have been quite teary eyed over the last month realizing how quickly this first year went and how truly blessed I am to have my beautiful boys.  I guess hitting the milestones makes me more reflective!  I'm very much a baby person and love every stage of it from newborn to toddler.  

The big thing this month has been walking.  He was a little slow to get moving, but once he did, he started walking really quickly.  I think he cruised for a couple of weeks non-stop and then just started taking steps a few weeks before his birthday.  My little guy continues to be not so little for his age.  He is the most easy going baby ever.  He will let you know what he wants and can get frustrated at times (especially when something doesn't go his way).  He also really really loves music and dancing.  His dancing has progressed from head nodding to moving side-to-side picking his little feet up as he does this.  It is too cute!  He's also a very cuddly baby.  He often interrupts his play to come and snuggle in my lap.  I don't mind at all. :)  The most consistent words he says are "all done" and "ota" ("take it").  Sometimes he says "ummy" for "mommy" and "dada" for "daddy".  He loves to fly airplanes with his brother and Pappa.  He does an excellent "aaaah" for the airplane sound. :)

Here are some of the photos from this month with the numbered pumpkin.  The pumpkin is tradition now (you can see the other two years here and here. :)

I had to add a couple of black and white photos since I did this with Little Pilot's 1 year photos too.

Lastly, the oh so tricky onesie picture.  I probably should have ironed the tablecloth I used for the background.
So that wraps up Co-pilot's baby photo project.  It feels like I just started it yesterday.  I am so glad I did this and am planning to make a photo book with them as well.  I'm not sure what I will do going forward, but I'm sure you'll see this guy making appearances throughout my future posts.  Up next, I have to edit and share Little Pilot's three year photos.  Thanks for joining me on this photo project journey!  

A note to my baby, if you ever decide to read this when you're older, I want you to know that your mommy and daddy love you more than you can imagine, but that God loves you even more than us which is just unfathomable!  Hold onto that truth and He will guide your path!

    1. I know! I really expected him to walk much later since he started crawling so late. You never know with babies. I get quite a few of those "o" mouth pictures. Our little open mouth baby. :)

    1. He got the cart for his birthday. His big brother likes to sit in it and be pushed by his little brother. It's quite entertaining. :)

  5. Your photo quality is amazing! Can I ask what type of camera you use. I'm thinking of buying my hubby a new one for Christmas. Our point and shoot (cannon power shot) is easy to carry around but not the best photos!

    1. Hi Katie! The camera I use is a Nikon D7000. I have a couple lenses for it and these pictures were taken with a Nikkor 50mm 1.4. My other lens is a Nikkor 18-200 mm 3.5-5.6. I hope that helps. Good luck with your camera hunt! A DSLR is totally worth the investment!

    1. Oh good! I guess I'm not the only one who wants they're little one to stay a baby as long as possible. ;)

  8. So sweet! My baby is almost seven and I still call him baby. He used to correct me, but now he just explains me to his friends. 'My mommy just calls me that even though I'm not willy a baby." --still has a little trouble with r's. :) Happy Birthday Co-Pilot!
