I can’t believe that you are ONE. Your birthday was on Sunday so I made you this little dress shirt for the party out of my snail fabric, and I can’t believe how grown up you look!!
You are the sweetest, snuggliest little baby with a silly sense of humor and great conversational skills. I hear you upstairs when you wake up from your nap, heatedly debating foreign policy (or is it your preference for bananas over apples perhaps?) with Curious George in your crib. We can’t understand any of the words, but the way you use inflection and tone is quite dramatic. When Daddy reminded Clementine on Sunday morning that it was your birthday, she said, “Can he talk now?” As if it could happen, just like that, overnight. You’re making progress though, with your noises and your baby signs.
We discovered a first tooth early last week. Check that one off the milestone list. But crawling…welll. That Butt Scoot is probably going to have to do it, because the two times you tried to get into a crawl position, you landed flat on your face on the hardwood floor and you haven’t tried it since.
I love you my little Hugo! Happy Birthday!!!
please don’t post or reuse photos of Hugo. Thanks!
Pattern: I drew this pattern myself, though after I put it all together I realized it’s almost exactly the same pattern as the Sketchbook Shirt by Oliver+S, so buy that one if you want something similar!
