Grayson at 12 Months Old!!

Over the past year, amazing changes have taken place. Grayson has reached so many milestones & we are so proud of him! He has a big personality and is becoming more & more independent every day, so much so that it is hard to remember the weeks when he slept most of the day!! And the child is seriously mobile...we are doing a lot of chasing :) Bradley & I love the stage he's in...we have so much fun! We cannot imagine our lives without him!
Grayson is WALKING!! It is so cute to watch him because he gets really excited when he walks :) He finally said his first word = MAMA {5.19}...he looked up at me & said "Mama" in the sweetest voice, it brought tears to my eyes! He now says Mama when he wakes up until I get him out of bed :) His new thing is pointing...he points at everything! It is so cute! He is obsessed with pushing buttons. And he loves to look at pictures of himself...he points at them & smiles! He also loves to be outside & loves the water {tub, pool, lake}! Bradley lets him spray the water hose & Grayson thinks it is the funniest thing! His *4* pretty pearly whites give a new look to his adorable smile. We were blessed with a child that will try anything at the dinner table! While eating dinner he will walk over to us, point at our food & say "bi" aka "bite!" But, he is still having an issue with thick foods, like oatmeal. He gags with anything thick or a little chunky {even stage 3 baby food}. What's weird is that he is fine with puffs, yogurt, chunks of fruit {apples, bananas, pineapple} and he will take bites of our sandwich, pickle, & almost any table food??!!
