Simon's 1st Birthday

Simon's first birthday was Friday, November 29th.  We had a little party for him on Saturday.
He had his first cupcake (albeit pretty healthy for a cupcake).
He liked it right away, but he wasn't sure how to consume it (as his food is always cut into bite-sized pieces).
After a little encouragement...
... he took matters into his own hands...
... and enjoyed himself very much!
Simon had his 12-month check-up yesterday.  He weighed in at a healthy 25 lbs, 1 oz and was 31.5 inches long (the 95th percentile or thereabouts for both).  He is far bigger than Kira or John was at this age.  He is also more daring and physical (perhaps a result of wanting to keep up with his siblings - it's hard to say).  We never had to worry about the other two climbing up anything.  This child, on the other hand, has been on top of something every time I've turned around lately!  He certainly keeps us busy!  He's also talking a TON!  He has more words than I can count... Mommy, Daddy, John, chicken, dog, wow, no, bottle... the list goes on!  So maybe there's something to be said for keeping up with the big kids...
Happy birthday, Simon!  We love you!
