Clearly, I have been in denial about you turning a year...it was just a few days before your 1st birthday when I took this picture! And my how you have grown!
Just a few days before you turned 11 months you started WALKING. It was a subtle few steps at a time for a few weeks and then one day you were off! I don't think you've crawled hardly at all since. You love your newly mastered skill & I think are quite keen with the idea of being on (almost) the same level as your big brother.
You also love to wave & say "bye bye"...even when you mean "Hi". You love to clap & dance to music. You play cars & ball like it's your job. You even manage to gurgle out a little "vrrrmmm" when you are playing with your cars.
You love to "catch" and throw the ball with anyone who is willing!
Your all time favorite song is a classical rendition of "humpty-dumpty". When you decide you are fed up with being in the car, or are just sad, all mommy & daddy have to do is turn on that song and you quiet down immediately:)
You weigh (according to my postage scale) 24 lbs and are about 29" long.
You have 7 teeth and more on the way.
Words can't even begin to describe how much we love you, little Mark Asher!
