Adler // Twelve Months Old

Adler is officially a big ONE YEAR OLD!! (Well, he's technically almost 13 months old now... but hey, that's still one!)

He's turning out to be a pretty busy baby toddler! He still doesn't say very many words, but he loves to play and is getting a lot better with his walking. He likes to crawl up the stairs, and he's actually getting pretty good at crawling back down (thank goodness). He has six teeth now, and I think he's getting at least one more. He weighs a whopping 20 pounds and is constantly hungry... and therefore, constantly eating.
