We had a small, simply party for Hugo on his birthday in our backyard. Homemade pizza cooked on the bbq and ice-cream sundae's were on the menu. Of course we had cupcakes too and Hugo had his own little smash cake, which he was a bit timid about at first but, with a little prompting, after his first taste he was right into it!

A little snapshot of Hugo at 12 months.
Sits on the floor and throws a small ball back and forth with us.
Has finally slept in his cot a few times for day sleeps and a couple of nights now too (not the whole night, but has started the night there)
Has finally started to crawl properly. He was doing the army crawl for such a long time, but the day before his birthday he had a chiro appointment and after that seemed to just free him up and that afternoon he started to crawl correctly. He hasn't stopped since! The first time he crawled properly was because he was in just a nappy on a warm day and he didn't like the feel of the carpet on his stomach as he was sliding around in his usual style. The best bit was we caught it on camera!
His seventh tooth came through on the 10th of October.
He loves pizza crusts! he shoves whole big chunks in his mouth and then struggles to chew properly.
Claps his hands
Is saying a few words: dada, mum, pup, nana, pa and tries to copy other words too. he can also say "woof" when you ask what a puppy says. He has also gotten pretty close to saying lari.
How quickly a year can go. Its hard to believe that this time last year we were bringing home a tiny bundle of joy. Now he's a big bundle of energy!
We love you Hugo. This year has been amazing, incredible and unforgettable, all because of you.

So close to the one year mark!!!
This boy loves eating now. He loves yogurt, cheese, cheerios and chicken lunch meat. He also loves to eat whatever we eat, which makes things so much easier.
He is on the go so much more now, still just the army crawl, but he is so fast now and goes from room to room in the house on his own.
He had his first wedding (Benny and Emma!!) and his first real time being baby sat (for longer than an hour) by Nana Cheryl.
His little personality is really starting to shine now. he is independent, knows what he wants, is cheeky, likes to do things that make us laugh, and he is really clever and working things out.
He has a bunch of plastic cups that stack one on top of the other, and he thinks its hilarious to wait until we have built the tower, and then he crawls over and knocks it down, laughing hysterically!
Has really gotten into peek-a-boo
He loves to scoot over to where Dave's guitar sits on the floor and tap it or strum the strings.
Loves to bang things.
We turned his car seat around on the 22/9, and he loves sitting up in the big boy position. He sits back in it and laughs to himself!
He has started the bum-up sleep position on his tummy. Its so cute and kind of feels like a baby milestone.
I'm actually only getting this post up a week before his first birthday. I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone, and that this time next week I'll have a toddler!?!?!

I'm getting more and more behind with getting these posts up. This fella is closer to 11 months than he is ten, but here goes anyway!
He lifts the flaps in picture books now.
Has two books that he know really well - 'Spot Visits the Farm' seems to be the clear favourite, and he gets excited every time we turn the page to the cranky goose and squeals with excitement.
Loves to feed himself we have discovered. Anything shaped like a chip that he can grip, he will happily much away on. So glad we finally figured this out!! He also prefers to eat what we eat so we have been giving hims spaghetti, chicken, weet-bix. Whatever we have going on, he wants in on!
He started to army crawl on the 28th using one arm. My phone has been great incentive to get him scooting along.
Up until then he had been spinning around in circles on him tummy to get to where he wanted to go and to toys he wanted.
Just a short one this time, but we cannot believe how quickly he is growing and how close to one year old he is! Slow down time!!
