Another month in your tiny little life has flown by...but this time BIG things have been happening! You've really embraced the big boy lifestyle :) While you've grown so much in some ways, we're always reminded that still, you're just a little guy. We get so used to you being our little tag-along and mostly behaving well that when you pull a typical baby/toddler move, like say waking up in the middle of the night screaming and joining us in bed, it throws us for a loop. We're like "oh. yeah. this is still happening, isn't it?" It's not fun to half-sleep on the very edge of the bed with about 6 inches of blanket but if it will help you get back to sleep then hey, I guess we'll deal :) But enough about that (can you tell it's way too fresh in my mind???) let's get on to what you've been up to.
- You started potty training! We are letting you lead the way and you've been doing a fantastic job. It's had it's moments of frustration and vommy smells but you're doing it bud, and we are super proud of you.
- You are embracing the whole being a boy thing. No longer timid or especially gentle, you love wrestling, climbing on Daddy, roughhousing (did I really just say that?) with your cousins and using your mom as a playground. Face squeezing and smushing is totally normal, although not encouraged AT ALL. I can't count how many times a day I have to remind you to be gentle!
- You've found a big appreciation for the Pigeon books, as seen above. You love being read to and whenever you're not supposed to let the pigeon do something (like drive the bus) you always let him. Pigeon says "Hey, can I drive the bus?" and you say "Yeah!" and crack up laughing. You think it's the funniest thing.
- Your new favorite phrase is "oh goodness!" Cue me dying of adorableness.
We've got so much love for you kiddo!
Mom (yes, you call me Mom now. Oy.)
