12 Months Old... Just Like That!

So, we're REALLY late getting this posted, but it's been a wild ride lately.  We didn't get a 12 month picture at home because Mom was in the hospital!!!  Here are his latest "stats" just in the month before he turned ONE!

In his 12th month, Daniel:
Liked throwing balls.
Ate yogurt.
Played in the grass.
Went to the neighborhood playground.
Was blessed to NOT be in the car his parents totaled.
Figured out where the cereal cabinet was.
Made friends with some of the men at church.
Celebrated his first Easter.
Ate Chick-fil-A for the first time.
Went walking with Addy.  They actually "strolled."
Got his 5th and 6th teeth.
Learned how to clap.
Started say, "Uh-oh," "Ow (much like Ouch)," and "Oh, wow!"
Walked.  1st with his hands up and then with items in hands.
Got to forward-face in his new Britax car seat.
Special thanks to the Evenflo one getting into the wreck.
He's forward-facing because he can get out of the seat.
Oh, and he likes to attempt choking himself.
Had his first birthday party.
Got LOTS of amazing gifts.
Liked riding in his "new" jogging stroller.
Played with the hose pipe.
Went to TPAC to see his cousin Anna perform.
It was VERY difficult for him to sit still.
He LOVED the music!
Liked eating Cheerios,  gold fish, popsicles, mango, cake, and ice cream.
Went to ONLY whole milk!  WOOHOO!
Enjoyed his visits from his best pal, Pierce.
Slept well.  Would get at least 8 hours a night.
Tried to imitate everything (including animal noises) such as:
Moo, Meow, Quack, Squeak, and A-E-I-O-U.
His Mimi (and Mom) really wants him to know the vowels!
Wore 18 month clothes and size 4 1/2 shoes.
Still in size 4 diapers.
Weighed 24.4 lbs, 50th percentile.
Was 30 inches tall, 75th percentile.
Visited his Mom in the hospital.
She went into pre-term labor with his baby brother.
He stayed with family for 7 days (and then some).
Spent his actual birthday with his Aunt Jessica.
