Madden- 1 year old

 And just like that....Madden turned ONE! The first months (of no sleep!) felt like they dragged but then the months took off and here he is already one. At one year old, Madden weighs 25 pounds 7 ounces (96th percentile) and is 30.5 inches long (75th percentile). He wears 18-24 month clothes and is in size 4 diapers (but will soon be out of those and onto size 5).
This month Madden mastered pulling himself up to stand. He spends most of his days playing with cars while he is standing at the couch or tv stand. He also loves to open ALL the drawers and get into everything.
We have spent a lot of time this month in the pool and at the beach. Madden isn't a fan of the beach. As long as he is playing in the sand, swinging, or sitting on a blanket eating, he tolerates it, but if he is anywhere near the ocean water, he is crying and holding on for dear life.
 He tolerates the pool too. He would rather sit out and watch. His favorite thing to do at the pool is sit on a towel and eat or wave at everyone else in the pool. 
Madden is a bottomless pit when it comes to eating. He loves carbs and all meat. He has been better this month about eating fruit, and we are trying to get him to eat more vegetables. He transitioned to milk at the end of 11 months and has done great on it. We got rid of bottles and pacifiers this month, and he has had no problem with those gone.
Mads makes our days brighter with his constant smiles, babbling, and laughing. He is very attached to his daddy and I, and he hates when he is dropped off in the nursery or with anyone else. He loves his sister and getting into whatever she is doing. He knows exactly what here favorite toys are, and he spends his days trying to take them from her and play with them himself. 
Madden is the perfect addition to our family! He can always make us laugh and he is just so sweet. We had the best time celebrating our little man turning one and are so thankful for such a fun year with him! Happy Birthday, Madden Jax!
