He understands request from me, such as 'please give me your binkie'. He babbles a lot. But no clear understandable words yet, besides hi. He is really into waving at people right now. If he is in the stroller he will have at people a block away. He really hates it when people ignore this. He also like to throw fits when food is not given to him fast enough.
He also took a couple of steps, toward my phone. But then got embarrassed by it and crawled to his room. He has refused to re-attempt this feat thus far.
I told him he can take his time because all this growing up is too much for me. One step at a time, literally.
But now he is one, ONE! This year has flown, but I also feel that time without him doesn't exist.
It is crazy to look back at photos a couple of months ago and see a baby face. He already looked so much older. My baby is slowly disappearing and it is crazy.
I have been ignoring this day as much as possible. I know if I think about it too much I will start crying. Thankfully I have been busy and there is very little time to dwell. But randomly this week I will get a moment of anxiousness and I think it is related to Leland turning one. Really I have no idea why I am feeling this way, but it is my best guess.
Happy Birthday Leland, looking forward to the many years to come.
p.s.this is my 400th post!
