Portrait of the baby as a Young Man

The World's Cutest Baby is one year old. He is now the World's Cutest Toddler.

Mobility: He's been walking since about nine-and-a-half months, and so by now he's quite accomplished at it. He actually broke into a run the other day. So far, he's not attempting stairs. Thank God.

Picking up and carrying heavy things around the room;
holding things (toys, remote controls) up to his ear as if they are telephone;
trying new foods

Monkeys, Ducks
our cats
flashlights and other things that light up
sticks of all kinds - brooms, wrapping paper tubes.

Favorite joke:
stealing your hat; putting things (socks, books, toys, paper) on his head as if it is a hat.

Favorite music:
he favors things with a strong beat, like dance tracks. (shudder.)

Favorite Foods:
change from day to day. Consistently enamoured of cheese, plain yogurt, cottage cheese, bananas, apples and wheat toast. And butter. (Guess he's my child.) Today, he ate more than half of a gigantic red grapefruit (from which his mother carefully removed the membranes.)

duck and monkey noises, Daddy, uh oh! Hi! and NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
