Walking and More Walking!

Rex has just recently learned to take some steps. He is "walking" but not everywhere he goes. Silly me, I thought once they take their first step...that's it...they are off! But no. :) Rex took his first step in May and slowly but surely he is taking more and more! Randy and I love to cheer for him and have him walk to us!! He gets so excited sometimes thought that he falls down! It is so cute! He also flails his arms when he walks...not sure if it is to keep his balance or just because he is excited. :)

And check out those cute jeans. ;)

Also..if you can tell in the background--we recently got a new couch (sectional) We love it!! The night before we got it, we were couchless (just for one night) so Randy let Rex use his recliner to drink his milk. He looked like such a little man!

Speaking of Randy--I have to do a quick flashback to Father's Day. Randy is such an amazing father. I am really blown away sometimes by his love and patience with Rex. We are very lucky! We didn't do much for Father's Day, but I we wanted to make it special. We gave Randy a photo album full of pictures of Rex's first year (and all of his month photos) My favorite part was the last page, it held these pictures. :)

Then I also bought Rex this onesie for the day of Father's Day! :) He played in it all day. I also made Randy's favorite meals and treated him to breakfast that morning. I think overall it was a great day!

Rex Year 2!

Well Rex has turned one and the first year has come and gone! Wow, was it an adventure! We loved every second with our little man though! Now we are home with him for the summer and loving every second of it! For Rex's birthday in May, I got him a little pool! We have been spending some time in the pool and enjoying our time together!

We also have been learning alot this summer! We have a mastered a few skills such as using a sippy cup, feeding ourself, and even playing with puzzles!
The sippy wasn't easy for us but Rex finally took it. I believe when we switched to whole milk--he no longer wanted the bottle. He looks so cute holding his cup now though! :) We never get tired of watching him!

Rex loves to feed himself now! We have him on just about any food we are having. His favorite though is Gerber Graduate Ravioli! Obviously we do not eat that, but man he can tear it up!!

Puzzles!! We have started playing with puzzles. I say playing because he is still grasping how to actually put the pieces in the puzzle. He can do the circle and the star! :) He gets so excited when he gets it right! :)

I will be updating much more this summer with pictures of our sweet boy!! Stay Tuned!
