Today is Mattix’s first birthday! It’s weird to think we have a 1 year old – time really does go by fast. He’s grown so much and made us the luckiest parents. I’ll forever be grateful knowing he chose us to be his parents.
Mattix is quite the character! Always scowling or unemotional and then he surprises you with a smile. Never wants to cuddle or be held, he’s always on the move looking for new things to discover. He’s seriously happiest when he is outside playing in dirt or at the park. Only grumpy when he is hungry or tired. Loves ALL food but allergic to nuts. Knows how to say “Dada”, “Mama”, “No”, “Ta-Da”, “Done”, “Don’t”, and “Woah” but rarely lets you hear him say it. He’s definitely stubborn and independent already which has its perks and annoyances.
He has the cutest blonde curly mullet and a cute little mole in his hair line. He also has the funniest bow legged little walk and his arms are always flailing around when he gets excited. He loves to clap and give the biggest grin when he does something new or proud of. Has the cutest laugh when Dad tickles him or when he goes down a slide. He likes to climb up on the coffee table (or really anything) and jump off. Still loves Moana and Trolls and has started to dance to the songs. But my favorite thing he does right now though is curl up in his favorite blanket – just melts my heart!
He hates getting his diaper changed, cuddling, and wearing shoes. He rubs his food into his high chair or throws it when he is done. He throws things off the upstairs balcony and throws tantrums when we tell him to stop doing something. Still not too sure about pictures unless the flash is on though.
There is so much more about him that I want to remember but this post would probably be ridiculously long, ha. I just love him so much and wish he could stay my little boy forever. But for now we will just enjoy all the little moments of our cute ONE YEAR OLD! I can’t wait to see his personality grow more in the next year.
