Duncan is 1!!

I cannot believe how quickly this year has flown by, but it has and my wee mannie is one year old.
He was so small...
But he's gotten so big and learned to do so many things!!
Like his brother before him, he is a very physical child. He climbed before he learned to crawl. He is saying a few words - Mama, Dada and No being the most often used although we occasionally hear yeah and fishie. He loves to eat and insists on drinking from a sippy cup - forget the bottle!
His favorite sippy cups have straws, so we got him a couple for his birthday. Logan thought he would like this pink one, and he does!
He loves books, particularly interactive ones with flaps to turn or buttons to push.
He also is enamored of anything with wheels, particularly tractors and trains. If it has wheels and buttons to push, well that is just a bonus!
He's a very musical fellow and his favorite "toy" is the piano downstairs.
He has decidedly un-toddlerlike taste in movies. His all time favorite is Despicable Me, but he also really enjoys The Incredibles and Toy Story. He won't watch "baby" movies like Baby Einstein or Elmo. He despises Hello Kitty and cries whenever Myra asks to watch it. We're on the same wavelength with that one...
For his birthday, I made Minion cupcakes, which were a hit with all the kids (and the adults, too if we're being forthright).
They were yummy.

Duncan took his first steps on Thanksgiving. He's been slowly working up to real walking with a few steps here and there, but crawling is definitely faster! Today we caught his progress on video!
How cute is that kid???
