First birthday. He was not one of those kids that dove into the cake and got it everywhere. Nope, he freaked out and wanted nothing to do with it. I even tried to put some icing in his mouth so he would know how sweet it was. Nope. Not gonna happen.
In the last year especially, I have learned more about boys than I ever thought I could. At least for mine, they will make a road or track out of anything for their cars or trains to ride on. Sand being poured over their head and into their mouth is fun! Hands in the pants is a must. Jumping from everything and onto everything is not a big deal anymore. Tools are cool! You MUST imitate the sound of a plane, train, race car, etc several times a day. Boys DO want to be just like their daddy's. Claiming that the toot we just heard was theirs. They like to be tough and never sit still, but love to snuggle with their mommy when they are tired. Only having a sister, I have found myself telling Jason about something that Joshua did with a sound of shock in my voice. 99% of the time Jason's response is "It's ok, that's just what boys do". I am getting more and more used to that and just love being the mommy to my precious son.
