Happy Birthday Baby!

January 2nd, 2014

Mr. Hunter! You are one year old!

The last few weeks have been a time of enormous change, really our absolute favorite time to be your parents so far. At about 11 1/2 months you stood without holding on to anything for a moment, when you picked something up with your supporting hand. Now a few weeks later you love to pull yourself up into standing and are still crawling as primary mode of locomotion but have been surfing the wall in the bathroom to get to the toilet paper dispenser. You love to unroll the toilet paper.

Around that same time, 11 1/2 months, your primary baby talk word became cat.

Cat…does not mean cat. You wake up in the at us, and say, Cat! You say cat to mom’s nipple and cat when you look at Max sometimes which is funny…but does not mean cat. Often you say cat cat cat cat hat. During this time you repeated pho and lion and, right before your birthday, said “‘gain!” You put a diaper insert on Mom’s head a said, Hat! I wish we had a clear answer as to what your first real word was. You have learned to (usually) say cat at the end of your cat song. There are 4 verses and the first goes:

There once was a baby named Hunter He was a Hunter Bunter And when he saw Grandma’s pet Penny He said CAT

The one thing that clearly always means the same thing– at least mostly–is hot. Dad holds you while he makes the coffee, and when the steam comes out, you both say “hot.”

You just started doing the excited head shake.

OK, I am posting this one day before you are 13 months old, because I was busy making your baby book. I hope you like it!
