Blake is 13 months now. The poor little guy went through quite a bit the first year of his life. First we found out that he has some pretty major allergies, he is allergic to milk, eggs, nuts and soy. His 1 year birthday cake was pretty intersting to make. But as you can see he loved it anyway! He has also caught every little cold and flu it seems like this winter. They say kids with allergies tend to have poor immune systems. He is such a fun little guy though. He definatley has his own personality. He just took 3 steps yesterday. He seems pretty determined to be able to keep up with his big brother Tommy and can't wait till he can chase after the dog. He loves the dog. Just to prove it, his first word was not Mom, not Dad, but DOG! He also loves to play outside. He is just like his Dad and loves the outdoors. No matter what the Weather is.
