{Crew's 1st Birthday!}

It's hard to believe our little Crew guy is already a year old. His 1st year stats are 25th percentile in weight and 50th percentile in height. His growing has definitely slowed down. He is officially walking and gets braver every day at how far he will go on his own. He has been right about average with his physical development but his language development is off the charts! The doctor was shocked when I told him Crew has a vocabulary of about 17 words. At his age, it is normal to know mama, dada and one or two other words. I have been teaching him sign language since he was 6 months and I think it has made all the difference in the world. He realized very quickly that he could communicate what he wanted and it has just snowballed from there. His newest words are grandpa (bampa), all done (ASL) and apple.

We celebrated his birthday with Lance's family in St. George then had a small BBQ with my family on Monday. It was very low key, just out on our patio in the evening, but absolutely the most perfect party I could have imagined. We had everyone there, even Austin's adorable girlfriend Kitsy.

We started the evening with some bubble blowing...

Then moved on to some barbecued rosemary ranch chicken, potatoes and asparagus. 

 Next, Crew started opening presents. You know how most people say that their child
enjoyed the balloons or boxes best? Well, Crew probably enjoyed all the attention best.
He was a total ham for everyone!

Trucks from Aunt Melissa and Uncle Jake were a big hit!
He also got a beautiful quilt made by my mom.

And then it was time for some cake! It's hard to tell in the picture but Lance
gave Crew a HUGE piece of cake.

Crew had everyone rolling with laughter...

He is very loved.

To end the night, he got a good bath,  
some snuggle time with daddy

And some birthday tickles.

 Happy Birthday Crew guy! We adore you.
