Chandler is One!

Chandler Jesson James

You are one year old today!

Be still my beating heart.

It seems like we were just welcoming you to the world yesterday....and here you are, turning one.

And what a fun one year old you are.  :)

You go to the doctor Tuesday, so I'll know your "official" one year old stats then, but based on our scale at home right now you weigh 29 pounds.  You're wearing 2T clothes and size 4 diapers.  You have 12 teeth - eight in the front, and four molars.  (The four molars are part way in - but they're definitely in.)  You aren't walking yet - but you're standing, and pushing things, and cruising along table tops and anything else that's within arm's reach.

You love to say "Dadda", and sometimes I get a "Momma".

It's so funny - we'll coach you to say "Momma", and you'll look at us with a big grin and clearly say "Dadda".

We think you can also say "Dog", and your face lights up when we say "Puppy, puppy, puppies" even though you can't say it yet.  You also know "Oh", and sometimes say "Uh oh".

You also know what "No" means - and are pretty good at throwing a little temper tantrum when you don't get your way, or something gets taken away from you.

And it's the darn cutest temper tantrum you ever did see - we're talking crying, with both hands laid out flat on the ground with your head down.  :)

You love to watch Leo and Dot play, be outside with the cows, or watch the horses.  When we walk out to the car, and you hear the bulls your head instantly turns toward them and it's clear that you're trying to figure out what's going on.

Your "stranger danger" is gone for the most part, and you go to about anyone now....but still reserve post-nap snuggles for mom and dad only usually.  And we love those.

You can eat most anything, and seem to like pretty much everything.  It takes you a bit to like really cold things (ice cream, refrigerated fruit) but once you get a taste of them, you usually take to eating it.

We celebrated your birthday with breakfast, family & friends.  You are so loved by so many - and for that, we are truly thankful.

Happy birthday buddy!

Your mom & dad love you more than you'll ever know.
