Happy Birthday, Pal! You enjoyed your outdoor party as much as possible, although you didn’t actually kick that fever. Turns out it was strep. Well done, sir. The doctor says it is somewhat unusual for someone your age to get it. So. . . er. . .congrats?

Anyway, a little ibuprofren and you seemed to enjoy your cupcake and festivities. As did your siblings and all the guests. A good time was had by all.

Since this is the last post, I have to mention a few housekeeping items – fewer (if any) blog posts – everything on facebook/instagram/flickr/etc. Marked private because your a kid and we don’t just broadcast your picture to every Tom, Dick, and Harry after you turn one. Add me as a friend if you want to see Jimmy pictures. Etc. Etc. Blahblahblah.

Well, it is possible this will be the last ever Weekly Campbell Kid Picture. Or is it. . . only time will tell!

Just as I did with Lucy, I have to say: Wait what? Week 52? Already? Holy cow, that flew by. You’ve been taking steps for three or four weeks now, but this week have you really begun walking in earnest. We think that you’re going to LOVE the pool this summer (once the water warms up a bit) judging by how you splash water ALL OVER THE BATHROOM when you take a bath, and you’re pointing and looking like you might want to start communicating in ways that aren’t screaming. That’ll be novel. Hopefully you’ll kick your fever that you’ve been running this week in time for your big shindig on Sunday. One more (bonus) picture to go, and then this project is done! Guess I’ll just have to find another baby to take a weekly picture of. . . 😉

Yeah, it was a busy weekend and this was a desperation highchair picture. I’m not to proud to admit that you four are WEARING US OUT.

Jimmy, we celebrated your buddy Peter Schaad’s first birthday this weekend with a big party at their house. You celebrated by playing with all of Peter’s toys. That’s what BFFs do, buddy. Play with each other’s toys. You learned that one fast.

Jimmy, you do this sumo-style stance quite a bit now, and you keep making like you’re going to walk, but you’re not there yet. Soon.

You’re at that age where you’re leading with your head. Thus the bruise that’s evident in this picture.

We celebrated your Aunt Janna’s birthday at Grammy and Pop-Pop’s house this weekend. You actually spent some time loving on your Pop-Pop, which is kind of new for you. Maybe when Mommy and Daddy go out in a few weeks, you won’t scream the entire time like your sister (Lucy) did the first time we went out after she was born.

Finally! We’re able to get outside again! You LOVE being outside in the yard. It gives you the opportunity to eat dirt (your favorite pasttime). This picture was taken on the swing in our back yard, which you seemed to enjoy quite a bit. But not as much as the dirt-eating.
