I'm turning into quite the little person. Always up to something. It took mama TWO days to actually get ONE decent picture. What can I say, those blocks are way to cool to just sit there like bumps on a log, and did you know that when I rock back and forth the chair moves?! Yeah, I know right. It's totally awesome, why would I want to just sit in it. Duh mom!
I'm a busy man these days, always on the move! I crawl faster than the speed of lightening and have mastered the stairs. I'm way better at going up, still working on coming back down. To keep me in, mom and dad put up all these gates. Hmph. They try and suck the fun out of everything! My favorite thing to do is stand there and shake it like a caged gorilla at the zoo! I haven't tried walking on my own yet, but I'll cruise along anything that stands still, pull myself up on just about anything and love to walk if you hold my hands. Once I even stood up in the middle of the floor all on my own...but it only lasted a second before I plopped back down on to my bum. Mom and dad were both there to see it and couldn't believe their eyes! Now I'll stand alone without holding on to anything all the time, but only in the bathtub. Where it's nice and slippery. I'm just trying to give mom a heart attack!
I'm eating like a champ. Usually 2-3 full meals a day! If you give it to me, I'm gonna try it. Grandpa says I must have a hollow leg with the amount I can pack in! So far the only thing I don't seem to like very much is eggs. Scrambled. Omelet. Hard boiled. Yuck! I've also learned this fun new trick to let mama know I'm done....throwing whatever is left ALL over the place. She doesn't seem to like it too much, but it sure gets me outta my chair pretty fast! I drink anywhere from 3-4 bottles a day, usually 4-6 oz at a time. Mom's not so sure how I'm gonna like it when they disappear in a month or so. I'm pretty good with the sippy, but bottles still rank number 1.
This past month or so I've turned into quite the little stinker. Getting my diaper and clothes changed may be the most painful experience of my day! Mama compares it to alligator wrestling, but I don't think I'm THAT bad. Still on the middle setting of all my diapers. Still wearing mainly 12mos and 6-12 mos clothes, but anything one piece is 18 mos. I've had a bit of a growth spurt and mama's hope that my clothes would last through the summer is quickly fading. Thankfully all the summer stuff is on super sale!! Now if only she could predict the future and stock up for next year! Honestly I'd just assume go nakey!!
As you all know I survived my first road trip!! I had a blast hanging out with grandma. We played on the tire swing. And ate blackberries straight off the vine. Discovered the wind chimes and walked a ton in the grass! She hadn't seem me since January and was pretty amazed with all the new things I do now! I even got to meet the newest member of the family, my 2nd cousin Charlotte. She was only a few weeks old though, I wasn't so sure what to think of her! Mom couldn't believe how tiny she was! Don't be getting any ideas though mama, I don't think we need one of those anytime soon!
I also got to hang out with mama's friend and her little girl Harper. She wasn't so sure about me. All I did was come in like a tornado and throw around all her toys. She tried to play tea party with me, but I took the cup and tossed it aside. She must have thought I was pretty goofy. Seriously though, don't you know shoes are for eating....NOT for wearing?! Girls. They don't know anything!
I've become quite the chatter box, though lord only knows what I'm saying. I will have complete conversations with anyone and anything. About the only real word that comes out though is "uh-oh." Dad is convinced I say "dada" mom thinks he's crazy. Once I do start talking they're all in trouble because I may never shut up! I mean look at that face, doesn't it just look like trouble!! And the hair! Mom promises me I'll be getting it cut soon, it's always in my eyes, though it seems to bother her more than me. This picture was actually the last one taken right before me and Kasey had our little wrestling match. Mama has been slathering on the Mederma like it's her job hoping one day my lil' face looks this good again!
The birthday planning is in full swing, mama can't wait to share with you all the fun things she's been buying! Only 29 more days people!!
