Teddy is one + one month

 Teddy turned one a whole month ago.  Yet, here we are, JUST posting an update. C'est la second child vie.
First off, can I just say that I CANNOT believe it has been over a year.  I think I may be the first person to ever say that right?? HA.  Time is moving oh so fast.
Teddy is our little troublemaker.  If mischief is to be had, Teddy is having it:)
He loves to climb stairs, up onto to the couch, or Joey's bed and scare me half to death.
He's a major grabber, so you have to be careful about what you have around him. Ripped my fave necklace right off me! My fault clearly! Should have known better!
He still puts everything in his mouth.  In fact, he even put a live bug in there the other day that I had to begrudgingly fish out because I hate even touching live bugs, let alone eating them!
He is walking like a champ, which I have to say makes life a little easier for me.
He LOVES to be outside.  All day he points to go outside. 
Really only says "Ball" and basically just points to everything else. I occasionally get a mama, but I don't have the same appeal as a ball apparently:)
He can clap if you say clap and he cheers for Joey when he does something good:)  He will also folds his hands when you say pray or when we say grace. He melts my heart!
He loves touch and feel books and actual sits there and lets me read them to him.
He hates: to be gated in the living room, getting his diaper changed, when he doesn't get his way;)
He loves to play with balls--basketball, baseball, football.  He likes to shoot hoops.  He loves to taunt his older brother--but the feeling is mutual in that respect:) But at the same time there is no one who can make the tedster laugh as hard as Joey can!
He's still a really great eater.  And just started drinking milk which he likes, thankfully. 
I don't even dare say this because of his track record but--I think we are finally on a sleeping all night routine--{big ginorm KNOCK ON WOOD!!!} Our bedtime routine consists of: I nurse him, sing him You are my Sunshine and The Guardian Angel Prayer and then I say a few more prayers before I lay him down.  I assure you although my voice is horrendous, Teddy loves it:)
Some stats: size 5 diapers, 18-24 month clothes, size 4 shoe, at least 6 teeth that I can see, was about 21 lbs and 30 inches long at his one year appointment! That puts him at about the 40% in both. 

He is just the sweetest happy little guy around and I couldn't love him more!!
