Happy Birthday Joseph Jr.

Our baby boy turned 1 two weeks ago. The adjustment to 3 little ones has been interesting and this past year has flown by. 

He has been walking for about 6-7 weeks and pretty much runs everywhere now. He keeps up with his sisters pretty well. 

He got his 5th tooth just before his birthday. We have been so blessed that none of the children have had too many issues with getting teeth. We also finally moved him out of our bedroom and the pack-n-play and into the crib in his own room. He is still waking up once or twice a night, but it's not a big deal for me. I'm usually up a couple of time no matter what, between him and his sisters getting up to go potty. 

He loves being outside and managed to get around pretty well on his own in the snow. He was a little annoyed that I had put thumb-less mittens on him. He was having a hard time picking up the snow.

Today, he went running after Joe and the girls when he heard them talking about going outside and going for a Gator ride. He knew he didn't want to be left out. 

Yes, we all went for a Gator ride in January.

We intended to have a birthday party for him last Sunday. But ended up canceling it that day because of some not wanting to or not being able to come. So, it was just our little family. We sang Happy Birthday, blew out candles and eat some yummy gluten-free carrot cake. We liked the cake better that the regular carrot cake I normally make. 

Joseph got his own plain gluten-free carrot cake cupcake because he can't have cream cheese frosting.

Coconut oil does a body good! He was just out of the tub and eating coconut oil right out of the jar. (We use it on our skin, so I had opened it for that.)

Happy birthday Joseph Arthur!
We love you!
