My baby is ONE!

Kai turned one on Thursday the 8th of July! Since we planned his party for Saturday I opted for a pan-CAKE the day of his birthday. :)

^Kai has changed a lot since his 9 month update!
His stats at 12 months are:
HC- 12.5 cm (25th%)
Height- 31 in (85th%)
Weight- 22 pds (40th %)
He got his 4th HIB shot and his 3rd prevnar shot.

From 9-12 months he started (April)standing well, making bbbb noise w/ his finger at his lips, stopped his afternoon feed, (May)got his right top front tooth, started to wave, started to crawl, (June)started to show some temper, started walking while holding onto a stroller, uses sippy cup, forward facing in carseat, got a short haircut, started to say "uh-oh", and repeating many other words we say (eat, ouch, dad, mama, ball, etc), dropped his night feed, started with a sippy cup(July)had his first sucker, got his bottom right tooth next to the middle teeth, stopped nursing, started drinking whole milk bottles morning and night, sleeping 6:30pm-7am or later, got his bottom left tooth next to the middle teeth, no more morning bottle, had his first cold(eyes).

Kai eats everything we do. The only thing he hasn't liked much is tuna fish. He takes 2 naps. One around 10am for an hour or more, and one in the afternoon around 1:30 from 1.5-2.5 hours.

Now for the party:

^ I picked the theme for Kai's party by something of his that he likes or something we call him.
^The theme was inspired by this monkey blanket that he has snuggled since he was a newborn. A monkey theme was fitting as well because of how energetic Kai is! This boy is crawling and climbing everywhere. I have noticed that boys are much more active in our case. Our little monkey! :)
^Progression of the cake...

^Love you buddy!

^Opening his gifts
The loot from us and friends! Obviously Kai doesn't have many friends yet, so thanks to all our friends that came to celebrate Kai with us!

We love you Kai guy! You are such a good natured happy boy! We look forward to this next year!
