14.5 Months (in celebration of the fact that I am ok with being no good at the monthly baby update thing) June 13, 2011

Baby bubs is not so much a baby any more!  He was walking around today in his little shorts, t-shirt, and big boy shoes, and I was hit by how much of  a little person he is (due to a nasty diaper rash, he was also walking around the deck the other day in his  t-shirt, big boy shoes, and naked little butt…he peed in the flower pot and then tried to eat the “mud” he created…boy to the core!).  His personality is showing up more and more, and he has a ton of it!  Little man is always busy, very social, independent, he loves discovering and learning (he’ll sit for ten minutes just trying to figure out the mechanics of a cup & spoon), and he’s just plain sweet (he gives the best kisses, which of late have been wide open mouth kisses right on the lips).   He’s also stubborn & very strong willed – he’s definitely not afraid to let anyone know when he’s not happy.  Here are a few of his favorite things:

-Dogs.  He can hear them barking from miles away and just gets giddy

-His stuffed wolf, Doug (that he thinks is a dog, named by his daddy, gifted by Aunt Jenna)

-Giving Doug hugs, cuddling Doug, rubbing his face in Doug’s fur, chucking Doug on the ground, using Doug as a pillow, sharing Doug with random passers-by

-Feeding himself with a spoon, feeding other people with a spoon, feeding Doug with a spoon

-Climbing things, walking off things, jumping on things, running away from things

-Copying Mommy’s fishy faces


-Sand, throwing rocks in the big lake, throwing toys off the deck , throwing Doug off the deck

-Talking on the “phone” (or the calculator, hairbrush, wooden spoon, Doug…)

-Saying “Hi!” (or “dog”, “mommy”, “no”, “daddy”, “truck”, “ball”, “eye”)

-Bending over on all fours and looking out between his legs

-Bananas, mangoes, blueberries, avocados, oatmeal

-Sitting on Corban size chairs – he’s been practicing the “no look” sit

-Putting things around his neck (necklaces, towels, long pieces of yarn, Doug) & wearing sunglasses

-Walking around with his eyes covered with something (which translates to walking into things…where is this child’s mother?)

-“Pound it”, showing off his belly button, eating pine cones, and helping me in the garden 🙂

-Showing off.  The only time he will ever do any sign language (he knows more, all done, and please and chooses NOT to use them) is when there are other people around

Bored yet?  I could go on……I’ll show you some pictures instead 🙂
