Half birthdays don’t really count around here… unless it’s 1 1/2. There is just such a huge transformation from a 12-month-old baby to a 18-month-old toddler! Such a difference that it absolutely must be noted. Just check out my little man:
I love EVERYTHING about this picture E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. The diaper rolled over the jeans. The toddler belly busting out. The farmer tan sported. The gun held out exactly as it should be. The smile of pride knowing he is holding it exactly right. The fact that I have NO pictures like this of my girls… because it simply wasn’t innate in them to do so. Now if only it were a video so you could hear the sound effects.
Yes, he is all boy. 110%. He is still fondly nick-named “Cleaning Crew,” as he is still constantly running around with the broom. He loves to dance and sing. Every morning he wakes up saying “Mommy.” If only it meant he loves and wants his mommy… in reality he is begging for a video entitled, “Mommy and Me.” And when he sits down to watch, he gets SO excited and actually sings “Moooommmmy” It’s pretty much the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. He loves cars, balls, books and talking. (At least he has one thing in common with his sisters!)
Here you can kind of see how his mouth is making the sound effects. Precious.
And, this picture… more love. Can’t you hear it? “What, mom?” Oh, my boy. I am so thankful for you!
