Henry is 1!!

It has been an exciting week in the Leeper house! Henry turned one this weekend and we had some special visitors from home make the trip to Baltimore to help him celebrate! Nana, Auntie, Alana and Jacob arrived last Thursday and we spent 5 days running here and there enjoying all that this new city has to offer to keep little fingers busy and little minds active! We partied on Sunday and showered our little man with love and attention to mark his first birthday!

Now that Henry is one, he has a few new tricks! He fearlessly motors around the house on two feet, with his hands high in the air and a silly grin on his face he looks more like a baby chimp than a baby boy! He yells "dada" as soon as Rob enters the house each evening and makes a beeline for the door (why is that always the first word around here??). 

Henry's "stringbean" physique continues. I haven't had his height measured recently, but he weighs about 5lbs less than his big brother did at this age, and is definitely taller. He has a total of 8 teeth, 4 up and 4 down. His appetite is fantastic, but he has become quite picky and would be happy to survive on a diet of crackers, yogurt and blueberries!

It has been a fabulous year with this sweet boy and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us next!


  1. Adorable ... we had so much fun at his first birthday party. Henry is a charmer and always has a happy grin on his face. Nana xoxo

  2. I love that you have a picture of him every month....especially the ones in the same spot with the chalkboard. My goal is to do this with Baby Ben 3. What a great way to look at him over the have inspired me!

  3. Happy birthday little dude! Love the chalkboard month by month pics. Hope you had a fantastic time with your family visiting. Ali and I fly home to ours on Monday and we just can't wait!
