This past week was LMM’s first birthday!
At one LMM is an assertive and inquisitive character. He’s walking and he’s trying to compete with the rest of us by talking (mama, dada, nana for bannana, nonono, ya, and then some – but there is stiff competition). He watches, and learns more than I realize. The other day he picked up LLC’s hair brush and attempted to brush her hair. He can drink water out of a regular cup without a lid. He still loves a cuddle and he’s recently gotten into dancing (see video). More still, as I’ve mentioned, he loves his food. I always have a piece of toast, mango slices or some shreddies to hand for when his I need to eat now paddies rear their loud head. He’s getting better at putting away and rather than just destroying, and listens when I tell him stop. Books are becoming more of interest rather than something to throw or rip. He does not like his sister blowing loud whistles or when meals end. He’s not a big fan of being “put on the rack” by his daddy and big sis (would you be?) or having his face wiped (unless its a warm cloth). He still sucks his middle and index finger on his left hand for comfort. His hair is finally growing a bit longer and his eyes still have a strong hint of blue. And his open mouthed kisses may not make him popular with the ladies of future but I think they’re the best!
Where does the time go? Happy birthday to my beautiful, feisty and sensitive boy! You light up our life and we love you so.
