his whirl wind arrival!
He's grown and changed so much this year and has been really pretty healthy aside from having pneumonia all of last April and then surgery in June. He's becoming much more social and independent. He's learned his sister's buttons and pushes them constantly and he simply adores his big brother!
As far a food goes, he started on a little dairy this fall but we're mostly back off it again due to some tummy issues. He's gluten free for time being because it's easier and while he's still soy free and the allergist wants to wait until 3 to trial it, he's had some accidental exposures with only mild reactions. I'm going to call soon to ask if we can go ahead with soy lecithin for now.
It's always a bit of a tear jerker when I make a birthday video. Adding the music is when it really gets me! I still can't believe how much he's grown this year!
We celebrated on Saturday with a John Deere Tractor party. Since riding on the tractor with Papa, he just can't get enough!
My mom helped make the cakes again. We had a chocolate sheet cake and a green velvet with yellow frosting in the middle for Konny. There was also green and yellow jelly bellies, cake batter rice krispie treats and puppy chow. All soy free and gluten free.
The favors were party horns, tractors and tractor bandanas.
Opening gifts got really exciting once he realized there were tractors in most of them.
As the party was winding down, Konny sang a little Justin Bieber for us with his new microphone from Mimi. It's hilarious that he knows most of the words!
The best surprise of my entire life
and a true gift from God!
