A Thankful 14 Months


Hey Kiddo!

Today is your birthday! Since you aren't a fan of sweets, does that mean we get to have yours instead? Maybe just some ice cream.  Thank you for making us laugh every day. Thank you for being brave, curious, and silly. Thank you for just being you. 

If I had to guess... you will be a veterinarian with all that love of animals you have. And your office will always be organized. If there is a cabinet open, you want to close it. If there is a box without a top, you want to put the top on. It's a trait to be admired little boy. 

You're happiest when... you get to play on "Momma's bed." You love rolling around and singing "5 Little Monkeys" while you bounce sitting down. (I should probably halt this before you start standing and jumping....)

You taught me... that 14-month-old boys do not notice 100 degree weather. Hello walking down the sidewalk and playing with bubbles every afternoon of this record-breaking temperature summer. 

Your belly loves... Apple Jacks! 

You're still working on... "Da Da. " Your usually "Ba Ba" for him has changed a bit to "Ga Ga." We are getting there! 

The photo that represents you... 




One of your feats... signing "thank you," "read," and "swing." Granted, no one else would have any clue what was going on, but you are improving all of the time. Now when you sign "more" you look more closely like the models instead of like clapping. 

What I want you to know.. do your best to always be on time and don't consider anyone's time any less valuable than your own. (That's one's heavy; I know.) 

If all else fails... may you keep your love of vacuuming (or at least a few years into when you can actually manage to work it).  Seriously, the giddiness you show when I break it out is too funny! 

New to you... Tip-toeing! You aren't so much intentional with it, but it's super cute to watch you chase a ball this way. We are working on doing it with purpose. You are also getting really good at the ba-badah of "Love Done Gone." 

A favorite day... I didn't jot down one day as standing out this month, but one evening we went out to see the swans after dinner and were surprised with some sweet ducks. You loved them, and the look on your face was priceless. 

Your jams are... anything by Laurie Berkner Band via "Jack's Big Music Show" (Thanks Nanny for the copy of this CD).
You've also been into "Rock and Roll Freeze Dance," which Momma likes because I get my silly dancing each day. 

My heart melts when... you share your love with our family and friends by hugging (or "loving" them).
