Jude Mark: 12 months! 1 Year Old!

We have a ONE year old! Hard to believe. This year has been one of the fastest years of my life. Jude is my joy and I love him so very dearly. I'm thankful for his sweet life!!

He weighs 19lb 3.5oz. He's just a peanut boy... Still in the 5th percentile. He's long too... :)
We can just call him a "bean" - that was my nick-name growing up.


He isn't quite walking but mostly seems interested in his fast crawl that gets him where he wants to go. Funny boy! We had family photos as well as I took CAKE SMASH pics. Here comes a photo overload...
He loved his first taste of sugary cake. It was made by an amazing lady: (www.cakesfromgrace.com) I HIGHLY recommend her!



He has two new buds on his lower gums... Thinking new teeth will be sprouting sooner than later.

This month he learned to wink & say that he is one. He's also picking up more on sign language. He LOVES to brush his teeth, watch calliou & play with balls.


His birthday party was April 7th and he had an absolute blast. Playing with friends was his favorite... And the balloons! I will do a whole post on his birthday party. I had SUCH a blast planning it. I love parties and loved celebrating his sweet little life!


I think that God knew what he was doing when he gave us Jude. He is a happy and chill baby that surely has a personality and is SO social. He waves at everyone! And if they don't pay attention to him... He waves until they acknowledge him. It's really funny!!

I praise God for him and pray truly that he would always have a smile on his face and joy in his heart from Jesus. I want him to know that Jesus is the ONLY way to have life to the fullest. I can't wait to watch my curious boy grow and learn more and more. His name means PRAISE and THANKS. We praise and thank God for him!


12 Month Prayer for Jude:
Thank you Lord for my sweet boy... he is really no longer a baby. I love his enthusasim for life and great joy. He has been an amazing blessing to my life and helped me thrive from a woman to a mama. I know that you have incredible things in store for my Juder. He absolutely LOVES people and smiling. He is determined, driven and not afraid of a challenge... I can already tell that. I love him! I pray for protection over him and that you would always watch over his little life. We bless your name and thank you for our son!!
