 Blowing out the candle. My niece came up to watch with mask on her face and it totally freaked Weston out, so he was really upset right at the moment.
 Checking out his cupcake!
 A little try
 a little more

 going for it
a glimpse of the number of kids at the party! That's not even all of them:)
Weston shares his birthday with our good friends the Parks youngest son Davis. So, we decided to share their parties since we would each want to invite the other family to the party. Since they were turning 1 & 2, we settled on a Thing 1 & Thing 2 party. It was really fun to put together the decorations and food. We are so grateful to have such good friends that we want to share in all of the fun with! 
 I kept some notes on my phone about the things he was doing and milestones:
July 7th (10 months) started drinking from a straw
July 27th Started signing more and all gone, then eat a couple of days later
August 16th (11 months) Started standing by himself, but won't take any steps. Pointing at things that catch his attention and babbling about them. Last month he started to LOVE caps and lids to waterbottles.  He loved to carry them around in his hands and put them on top of things.
August 22nd Can get himself down the stairs and off the bed. Cut top 2 teeth in the last couple of weeks. Now have 4 teeth--2 on top and 2 on bottom in front. Loves to play in the dirt. Making car sounds when playing with them.
September 11th started taking lots of steps. Not across a room yet, but 3-5 at a time.
Weston has been our easiest baby by far. He has been sleeping through the night since about 6-7 months. He takes 2 naps a day too! One in the morning a couple hours after he gets up and one in the afternoon. He loves to eat! And he loves to be doing whatever everyone else is doing. He definitely wants to keep up with the other kids!!
