Joaquin 1 Year Old December 13, 2008

*Wears size 12 or 18 month clothing and size 3 diapers
*Has been walking since he was 10 months old and is trying to learn how to run- he's getting pretty quick!
*Thinks he's invisible when he's walking backwards- he does this when he wants to get into something, like the toilet or dog food, that he knows he's not supposed to

*Wants to eat all the time and is always begging food from someone
*Has to have oatmeal for breakfast every morning
*Is not weaned yet but really needs to be- he's definitely a booby baby!
*Got sick for the first time in his life with a cold and the worst diaper rash I've ever seen for a couple of days (must be the whole getting 5 teeth in 2 weeks)
*Loves the dogs here at my dad's house- loves all animals
*Any time he hears music or any sort of beat he's shaking and dancing
*Sleeps in his own crib for naps and night-time and goes down without any crying (most of the time) as soon as you put him in
*He naps at 11 every day for about 1-2 hours and goes to sleep by 7 (sometimes as early as 6) every night and wakes u between 6 and 7 every morning

*When he's really tired he loves to snuggle
*He points to things with his little pointer finger all the time
*He loves his Uncle Jensen and Grandpa and Grandma Holwick

*He's a very naughty boy at church but he gets away with it because he's so stinkin' cute
*He's pretty much happy and smiling about 90% of the time
*He tries to wink but blinks both eyes- the cutest thing you'll ever see
*Has me wrapped around his chubby little finger- I LOVE my son so much it hurst sometimes!!

I just love that little boy. I want to talk to him more, but someone never answers the phone. I'll see you on the sixth! Hey, text me sometime.
