Mars is 1 year, 3 months, 2 weeks, and 1 day old!
Now that he's walking, he is exploring every possible nook and cranny. As you can see from these pictures, he's at a different spot and doing different things all the time! The pictures are from last week, when we went to celebrate Ivan's first birthday up in Gold River. The drive was two hours each way, and Mars did really well. He slept 30 minutes each way, and just played the rest of the time. I was really surprised! Well, actually, on the way back, he got really restless so I had to put on some Netflix for him, but it ended up being a good thing because he learned how to do deep breathing in frustrating situations! We got home, and he was super antsy for milk, then I sang the song from the episode of Daniel Tiger he was watching, and he started to take deep breaths and calmed down! Thanks, Daniel Tiger! Anyway, the party was so much fun! Baby Ivan is so cute and his parents are super sweet. His dad even went out and bought an inflatable pool for the babies since they were so drawn to the real pool, which was freaking out all the parents! The weather was hot, and it was the perfect day for outdoor water play :)
