14 months since this little guy came along and changed everything. He is in this really cool stage of rapid development, every day seems to bring a new challenge or accomplishment. He can say more words than I even know, busting them out to my surprise, like today when he picked up his hairbrush and announced 'bruck'.
Every morning I put him down and open his toy box in the living room, while he goes and gets his tiny pair of baby crocs that he demands to wear OVER his footie pajamas. Often he plays happily for a while, then points to the TV and announces 'Elmo'. The kid has seen ONE Elmo DVD, and still he loves it so much that I can only let him watch it in increments. 40 minutes of him glued to the TV may sound nice in theory, but I would rather read him a book than pop in his movie.
I know I say this a lot, but man has that kid ever taught me a lot about finding joy in daily life. For instance...did you know pretzal sticks are TONS of fun?
One year, two months. And rockin' a fabulous mullet.
