Micah's First Birthday

Our little man is already one year old. It's crazy how fast his first little year went by. Micah is doing phenomenal. He is so close to walking and took his first official step last Friday (3/16/12). He's quite the talker; his absolute favorite word is "ball" (anything that is remotely round is a ball) closely followed by Dada, Mama, Jada (he's only said it a couple times so far & it sounds like "Day-duh") and baby. As of just a couple days ago, he loves pointing at babies or photos of babies (including himself and Jada as a baby) and saying "baby, baby, baby". I'm currently trying to teach him to give kisses to babies. :-)

He's fully mastered the art of signing "please" and "thank you", which I'm very proud of; my boy has learned some manners! Whoo hoo! Now to just keep it up... :-)

He adores his big sister and just lights up whenever she enters the room.

His favorite activity is probably taking a bath; his splashes are quite impressive and although he can barely breathe when he really gets going (as water is pouring into his eyes and shooting up his nose), it's quite obvious that he's very proud of himself. He also enjoys throwing balls, rolling balls, and just identifying any balls in the vicinity. :-)

He hasn't had any seizures since June and we are just praising the Lord for His incredible healing. We are so blessed by our little guy.

Today, we visited Pigtails & Crewcuts for Jada's first haircut. She did fabulous. Here are a few pictures of the big event. :-)

Jada's Gymnastics Class

Here's Jada standing at the top of the stairs outside of her new gymnastics class. Her first class was this morning. She is in love with it. After class, she told me all about how her "teacher taught her how to do gymnastics" and she "met lots of new friends".

Once we arrived home, she promptly started dancing in the kitchen and informed me that she was doing "gymnastics". After about 5 minutes of intense dancing, she said, "Mommy, I'm exhausted" (yes, she used the word exhausted), then walked over to the couch, laid down, placed her head on the throw pillow, placed the blanket on top of her, then asked asked to watch "Lord of the Beans" (a Veggie Tale movie). ha ha. I think it's safe to say that gymnastics class actually wore her out! :-)

And here are a couple of videos... can you tell that she loves structured activity? And doesn't she just look so adorable in that little outfit?

Micah has Two Teeth!

His first tooth (bottom, front, right tooth) broke through on Gabe's 30th birthday (12/24/11). His second one (bottom, front, left tooth) came in two days ago. :-) What a big boy!
