One Year

Our little Turkey is 1!!  Crazy!

He is full on walking now.  He started side-stepping on 11/27, he wouldn't walk forward but would kind of shuffle a little then fall down.  Over Christmas break he really kicked it into gear!  He wasn't really crawling anymore by the time we came back from Wichita.

He said his first words (bye bye) about a week after his first birthday and a day later said "go".  The word "go" is his current favorite.  At first I wondered why he started saying it, did I really say it that much?  But now I can see why, I say "go" all the time!  I had no idea.  I'm starting to think that "go" is going to fit his personality.  When he's able to get behind something with wheels he goes flying!  Like, straight up sprinting.  He got ahold of my Grandma's walker when we were in KC and his little legs were moving so fast!  Go, go, go!!

 His sleeping has gotten better.  He had a bit of a cold there for a little while so he spent a few nights in our bed, but other than that he's pretty much been in the crib.  He sleeps through the night, most nights waking up a little bit but he's able to put himself back to sleep.  He takes a short nap in the morning and a longer one in the afternoon.

He eats e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.  He's a bottomless pit too.  He'll eat until you stop feeding him.  I love the way he eats.  He'll eat from his hands, fingers, wrists,'s pretty cute.  I've been buying those baby food pouches and he can drain one of those in no time.  He's drinking milk and nursing a bit in the morning and night.

He's so sweet and smiley.  Nola's been taking him in his room lately so they can play together.  We can watch on the camera and it's pretty funny to watch them together when they don't know we can see.  Nola loves him so much, she gives him lots of hugs, and he just smiles and laughs at her. 

Happy Birthday sweet baby!  We love you very much!

First Haircut!

Turk's first haircut was a long time coming!  We did it just before his first birthday party.  He wasn't a big fan, but looks so so cute with his new hair!

He's already ready for another one :)

Turk's family birthday party

I feel a little bad, for Nola's first birthday we did a whole thing.  Family, friends, decorations, outfits.  That wasn't the case with Turk's first, but we did get to spend it with family and that's what's really important, right?

My parents, brother, and his fiancĂ© came up to Lincoln to celebrate!   We rented a room at Valentino's (the same one we used for Robert's 30th birthday party) and had a nice dinner with them and Robert's family and opened gifts.  Nola opened all of Turks gifts, she's very "helpful" :).  We bought some cupcakes, Turk played with his a little but didn't really eat a lot of it.

Look how excited the birthday girl is!  Oh wait...

That night my parents watched the kids so Robert and I could go out with Kyle and Hannah.  I had a good time showing them Sandy's, an establishment I frequented during my college days.  Funny how it looked the same buy felt so different.  We laughed a lot, it was fun!

I can't believe my sweet little guys is one!  Happy Birthday Turk!
