See How much fun he is having?
:Still refusing to eat meat most of the time:
:Loves cake, as evidenced below!:
:Eats almost everything now, although still prefers yogurt and fruit:
Opening his present from grandma and grandpa...see the 1 week old pics in the background? I still haven't done the photo shoot!
:Is working on teeth # 11 and 12:
:Has new words everyday:
:Still walking more and more each day...but prefers to crawl:
:Loves his new lift the flap book from Grandma:
:Loves the firetruck, and nesting blocks from Grandmere:
:Loves the legos, and shopping caret from mommy:-):
:Aunt Beth just got him a Melissa and Doug Sushi Set which he really seems to like...ironic since Tom and I got sushi the other night and he had some of the rice and some of the other ingredients...he seemed to like eating from my chopsticks:-):
It looks like he is blowing out the candle...I think he is actually saying "oh!"
:He says dada now as much as mommy and really loves to spend time with Tom:-):
:says hat and tries to put hats on instead of only ripping them off:
:can locate his head if you ask him...and your eye if you ask where Holden or mommy's or anyone's eye is he points to the closest person's eye...not his own...:
:hmm I am sure there is more...we have so many times where we cuddle, and where he wants to be close and just interact:-):
:Oh yeah he started kissing back:-):
: inspired by Staci's Post I started teaching him to blow kisses...he learned it in one day! But only does it if you do it to him:-):
Am I supposed to be eating this?
I had to put this in just look at how his toes are pressed against the tray! I love this! He does it all the time...in fact he likes to hook his toes on things...including in my back pocket while he is in the sling:-)
Are you done with the pictures yet?
This year has been amazing...every time I sit down to write about it I come to tears...My son, the one who Dr.'s said it looked like we were going to lose in the early pregnancy days...I can't tell you how much we prayed for God's will...of course we wanted this life to be part of the plan...and we are so grateful that he granted us the chance to raise this amazing little boy...I cherish each and every night we have been up and i have had the chance to tell you of Jesus and His love for you...I know the days where I am your all are so short and I want to remember that look that is in your eyes when I walk into the room...I want to remember how sweet it is when you touch my cheek or reach out to me when you are nursing...how you throw your leg up when you are nursing...how you crawl into my lap and give me a hug every time you walk a few steps to me...There is so much I hope I never forget...your ridiculous scrunched nose smile when you are being funny...or your big contagious dimpled smile of pure delight...You are pure joy personified...such a happy boy...it has been so fun to watch you grow, smile, sit up, crawl, stand and walk...to see you interact with your family...especially daddy...I never knew what joy having a child would bring...and even though it also brings challenges I thank God for every day we have had and all that are to come...you have taught me patience, and so much more...I love you little boy...and I hope you always have that special smile just for me:-)
