Watch Me Grow: 13 Months

Now that we've passed the one year mark I won't be doing the normal posed photos anymore, but I want to still record what Jude is up to as much as I can. Now that he's WALKING we are extra busy! Jude started walking at 12 1/2 months. One day he just decided to start taking 7 steps, then 8 steps, then 15 steps.  Last week he mastered standing up by himself from sitting, so there's no stopping him! He bonks his head pretty much every single day now that he's on the run.
He now says dada, mama, baba (for a pacifier, drink, bottle or sippy cup) ba for ball, and yeah boy.
He barks, makes monkey noises, dances to ANY song, claps his hands, plays peek a boo, chomps his teeth and wiggles his toes on demand. He throws and kicks balls, throws toys to Clementine and loves climbing stairs. He plays the piano and guitars at my parents house.
Multiple times a day he goes to the door and tries to turn the knob (he can reach it now?!) so we go for walks or to the park. We get out of the house every single day to do something, whether it's walking around Target, getting lunch or going to visit Grandma.
His 9th tooth, a molar, popped through around 13 months.
Jude is still a good eater but he's definitely slowed down with how much he eats. He drinks two small bottles or sippies a day of milk, lots of water, and sometimes juice as a special treat. He loves yogurt, applesauce, bananas, grapes, oranges, blueberries and cereal bars. He also loves pancakes. He still refuses eggs, fish, avocado, and mashed potatoes.
Now that he wears shoes he loves putting them on. He likes putting on our shoes too. He also will laugh at funny things on tv shows now and we have no idea how he knows he's supposed to laugh!
The kid is obsessed with his pacifier. I try not to think about getting rid of it...
We love every new thing he learns, every smile and giggle, wiggle and dance, and his sweet peaceful slumbering face. He's cuddly and lovey and gives kisses all the time. I love watching him grow and learn but realizing that he's leaving the baby stage behind is so bittersweet.
