This is such a bittersweet Tucker update! On one hand, it's packed with so many fun "firsts" — first time playing in the snow, first (and second and third) park experience, first spoonful of ice cream and his first wagon ride. On the other, it's the last update on life with my infant — because in two short weeks, we'll have a toddler! This year has flown.
In January, he started standing by himself and climbing the stairs like a pro. By the end of February, he had taken his first steps in the kitchen floor. He also got his first two teeth in February, and now he has a total of four.
Another major milestone is that he's started napping in his crib — which means mom and dad get so much more done during the day! He mostly sleeps through the night, only waking up once or twice.
We also had another big first this year, but no photos: his first ambulance ride. At the end of January, our suspicions were confirmed that he has a peanut allergy. He did so great with the whole scary experience (I think he actually enjoyed the ambulance and gurney ride), and we've loved trying almond butter and Nutella.
Each month really does get more fun than the last, but I'm hanging on tight to these last few days before toddlerhood.
