Here are some happier pictures.
Everything is a phone now. He'll pick up something and just start babbling.
~ Opens doors. He is so tall he can reach up and grab the lever and go anywhere he wants.
~ Walks and runs.
~ Drinks out of a straw and eats just about anything. He is not picky. Loves the independence of feeding himself.
~ He can point to Mommy's eye... just about pokes it out.
~ Sleeps through the night!
~ Waves hi and bye.
~ Carries around heavy objects, including a 3 pound weight he takes out of our spare room/ workout room. (He has big biceps!)
~ Cuddles. He loves to cuddle with Mom and Dad, pillows, blankets, and big stuffed monkeys for short periods of time. Such a sweet boy. Because we say, "Ohhh! :)" when he does it, now he says it.
I want him to talk!
We think he has said the following words once, but we can't be sure: up, hat, dog.
He says, "Uh, oh" at times. I really thought he would be an early talker because of how much babbling he does.
I love him so much. I love this age, but can't wait to see how his personality continues to develop.
