Since I forgot to post Blue's 11 month update, here it is! :) Blue, you've gotten so so big this month! You took your first steps this month and now are walking all over! Wow! We knew it would't be long! You love to find things to get into (like the TRASH CAN!) and play with your brother and sister. You like to eat and will squeal when you see something you want! ha! You wave at everyone and can blow kisses, too! We love you so much and are looking forward to enjoying your first Christmas! (For this one focused picture, there are 20 more that are just a blurry baby on the go! ha!)

My dearest Baby Blue,
You are one year old! I have no idea how that happened so so fast! But, here we are a year later and you are about the sweetest thing ever! You are still such a good baby! A few things you can do are: blow kisses, sign "more", sound like a: pig, dog, and lion, WALK really fast!, CLIMB, say Mama and Bama, and give the best open mouth kisses. You like to #eatallthethings! Especially pouches, bread, yogurt melts, puffs, bananas, yogurt, and pasta.
You're so good at playing independently and love cars, trucks, and balls just like your big brother! You like to throw the ball and roll the cars and make car sounds. (You also like to destroy the train tracks...) Recently, you have found a great love for riding the golf cart with Tay-Tay. If you see it or even if she just comes over and you think it's outside, you point and say "uh, uh, uh" to ride it! ha! You never are still long. You're a boy on the run! You are still nursing for now but I think we'll be moving to a cup soon. A haircut is also on the horizon! ;) You slept through the night for the first time when you were 1 year and 1 day old! ha! Something magical about the birthday. Hallelujah. You love to play outside and sit on the toy tractor and four wheeler. We think it's hilarious when you do funny stuff like shake your head really fast, play peek a boo with any clothes you find, check the acoustics of a room, and dance as soon as any music comes on!
Here's a fun compilation of your monthly photos! :)

This basket holds our Christmas books and toys. I love reading Christmas books with my babies all month.
I love this beautiful white nativity I found last year at Goodwill!
When we returned home from school one day, an elf had left these cute Santa covers on our chairs! #myMamaisbetterthanyours
I love my new print from Jones Design Company and this little baby will not leave this Nativity alone! Maybe I will post some more pictures later...or maybe not! Merry Christmas!

You love to play outside in the dirt. That's probably your favorite thing to do. You also like to play with your train set and with your cars and trucks. You will do most of what Alabama tells to you do when y'all play together. You say, "I Daddy. You Mommy." You are very good at puzzles and like to put them together. You are even better than ever at driving your jeep and tractor. I have never seen a little boy drive so well! Everyone at your birthday party was so impressed! You also love to play football and "tackle myself!" You're very, very good at throwing and kicking and are working on catching! ;)
You have started to want to sing a few songs, too. It's so precious to hear! You sing by yourself: ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Old McDonald, Jesus Loves Me, and God our Father. You like to play with the instruments, too!
You are just so smart! You can count to about 15, know your colors, some shapes, can sing your ABC's and know that A is for "Aaa-gator" and B is for Bumblebee.
You love your teachers, Mrs. Stephanie and Mrs. Jane at school and are learning so much! Your favorite friends in your class and at church are Brooks and Bennett, (Bwooks and Ben-nett), John, Caleb, Jackson, and Jack.
I love you so much, Pate and am beyond thankful that I get to be your Mama! You're the sweetest boy I know and I am certain God has a perfect plan for your life and will use your mightily for His kingdom! Your tender heart and willingness to serve are such a blessing to us all!
