It's Blake's Birthday

Happy Birthday to our baby Blake! You have been such a joy and a blessing in our lives. After a long, hard pregnancy I was blessed with a great baby! You have made my transition from 1 to 2 so easy and I'm sure that will catch up with us on number 3! You are so easy going and happy. More about Blake:
-You are taking 5-6 steps at a time. You get the biggest smile on your face when you start walking. You are so proud of yourself.
-You babble and talk to yourself constantly. You say Mama and Dada.
-You have 8 teeth and your molars are on their way. You are chewing on your fingers a lot and I can see that your gums are inflammed. Unfortunately, you chipped your front tooth sometime over the last month. I have no idea when it happened. It is hardly noticeable and just a small chip.
-You are a great eater. You will eat almost anything we give you.
-You sleep from around 7pm-7pm for the most part. Sometimes you like to get up early or cry in the night, but thankfully you sleep through most nights. You usually take 2 naps a day. They usually total about 3-3 1/2 hours per day. You are a good car traveller but you don't sleep as well in the car as James did at your age. If you fall asleep in the car you usually wake up as soon as we turn the car off.
-You are a cuddle bug and so cute at night when you suck your left thumb and stroke your hair with your right hand.
-You are very photogenic and crinkle your nose at the camera.
-You HATE getting your diaper/clothes changed and usually cry during the whole ordeal. It is getting nearly impossible to change you without help.
-You have been swimming a few times and you love the water. Bath time is also your favorite time of day.
-You and James play very well together. You are starting to get very upset when he takes a toy from you. We have even caught the two of you in a tug of war over things. I can tell you are not going to back down easily to your big brother, but that you will be great friends.
- You are very tough. Most of the time when you fall down or bump your head you don't cry.
-You are becoming very daring! Today you decided you could climb up the slide all by yourself.

Happy GOLDEN Birthday Blake!! We love you!
