Congrats on making it through the first year.... It is an awesome experience.
Big milestones in my parenting experience.....
when the kid learned to blow their nose, i hated that suction thing, how do you ever clean it out?
when the kid could communicate to tell us what ailed them....i hated the guessing game to figure out what is causing this latest batch of fussing...is it teeth, gas, hunger, dirty diaper, general annoyance, wanted the channel changed, etc.
By the way....you need to work on your parenting skills....that kid is not messy enough with a cake sitting that close by.... i thought you were supposed to take the kids hand and press it into the icing and then wipe it on their forehead....repeating until they learned to do this on their own!?
