Trevin's First Birthday!

How did this day get here already? I seriously can't understand how he went from being this:

To being a big one year old! Every time my babies reach that one-year mark, it somehow comes as a big surprise to me! Ahh! They grow up too quickly!
Trevin has always been a very easy going personality, but I think that's all about to change! He really likes "getting in the middle" whenever the kids are running around laughing, or when Jared tickles Addie and Dallin, Trevin will often come in the middle to join in. He loves to smile and goof around, and recently we started hiding around corners and jumping out saying, "boo!" and he thinks that's the best thing ever. He makes car noises when he pushes around vehicles by saying, "ahhhhh"- it's pretty cute. He also signs "all done" and says "yuck!" which he just picked up a couple of days ago when I was saying that because he was trying to eat a leaf. He can't pronounce it super accurately (obviously!) but he goes around the house shaking his head going "ahk!". He likes to dance to music by shaking his head "no" back and forth. Trevin really really loves balls since a young age and likes it when you play catch with him. I sit across from him and toss the ball to him and he flings it back- for being one, he has a decent arm! He loves being outside- specifically putting rocks and other "outside" things in his mouth- but we haven't' gotten a chance to be out there much. Hopefully once it cools off, we can be outside enough that he'll learn what is not edible ;). He does'nt like milk yet and I'm almost done weaning him, so I'm a little worried about his weight declining, except that he REALLY loves food. He's not picky at all and pretty much will eat whatever I put on his tray. **Funny story** one night I was holding him and went to get the jar of nuts to munch on. As I put my hand in to get some out, he starts going, "num! num! num!" and as I went to put a handful in my mouth, he opened his too and was fussing until I went to go get him a snack too! Silly boy! This boy already knows how to throw tantrums and will let you know when he is unhappy or wants something- fortunately that isn't terribly often yet that he puts his foot down!

Some things about Trevin:
~Our first kid to make it to 20 lbs at one years old!
~He has 8 teeth
~Was walking at 11 months
~He loves any rare opportunity he gets to come outside 
~He says "yuck"
~He loves the dishwasher and will come running whenever he hears it open
~Balls are his absolute favorite things and he just learned how to say it (2 weeks after his birthday)
~He loves to pound on the piano
~He is always making noises and I will copy him and he and I will go around singing to each other for a large portion of the day
~He loves his siblings, despite how much they pester him (ahem! Dallin)
~Wrestling and playing with Jared is one of his favorite things!
~Bath time is his highlight of the day
~Wherever we go, he gets compliments about his big blue eyes
~He doesn't like pets and is afraid of cats and dogs
~He likes fighting with light sabers just as much as his brother
