I promised a review of the year thus far… so here you go! I think it’s safe to say this post will be broken up into at least 2 separate posts. I don’t want to overload you too much at once. =)
At the beginning of 2011, Johnny was 11 months old. As soon as he realized he could have an opinion & assert his will at mealtime, he pretty much stopped eating anything doesn’t taste awesome (read: vegetables). This boy is one PICKY eater!! I guess he gets that from his mama.
Days were filled with exploring & pushing around anything with wheels. I used to think the choice of whether to play with dolls or trucks was somewhat nurtured. No way! This kid gravitated towards things with wheels from day one!
AND he loves technology. Can he possibly get any more like his parents?
On 1/28/11, Johnny turned one! We made cupcakes the week after his birthday, as he was sick on his actual birthday. We didn’t make a big deal out of it, just the three of us. The cupcakes were gluten, dairy & soy free. He wasn’t really impressed.
But it WAS good enough to do a face plant.
Spring came along & we spent our days entertaining grandparents:
Watching sports with dad:
Telling Grandpa Mojica a story:
Hanging out with cousins:
In the Spring, mama got a jogging stroller so we spent lots of days like this:
Or just hiking in the woods:
One day we were shopping at Target and we passed these big blue balls. I can’t remember (sucky memory strikes again!) if we showed it to him or if he asked for it. But once he got it in his little hands, he wouldn’t let go – literally! And so began his love affair with balls. (Ooooo that just sounds funny….) This child can’t get enough of playing with any & every kind of ball – tennis ball, football, wall ball, soccer ball, you name it… he is throwing it! Future NBA player? I’m sure of it.
He is all boy for sure. Always getting into stuff. This shirt describes it best: “I tried to be good, but I got bored.” That’s my Johnny Bug in a nutshell!
And that’s what we did during Winter & Spring this year!! Pt. 2 with Summer & Fall will be posted soon!
