mixed bag

Antonio is 1!!! My sweet boy had his first birthday on June 1st! I think he knew it was his special day, his face would just light up when people sang to him. He was blessed to spend his first birthday with most of his abuelos, his aunts/uncles, and all his cousins. We had a wonderful time and threw him a birthday luau since we were at the beach.

Speaking of which, we got to go on a week-long beach vacation. We had a wonderful time at the Outer Banks. A nice long vacation where we weren't scurrying about was long overdue. I can't wait until the next one. (Even though there was a rampant strain of "pato-virus" going around. :)

Each day I am amazed at the things my son can do. He puts the phone to his ear and talks into it when he's playing. He makes "vrooom" sounds as he pushes around his toy cars. He dances. He claps. I could go on and on. I must comment on what I learned he can do today. Apparently he has figured out how to use a spoon. How do I know this? My sneaky little mouse found my sugar holder in the cabinet in our dining room and sure enough I find him with sugar spoon in hand, sugar crystals all around his mouth, and a huge smile on his face.

What will he figure out tomorrow...
