Are you kidding me with this face??? Look at those cheeks! And those pouty little lips! Oh and don't get me started on his big doughy blue eyes. Gosh he's the cutest. How lucky am I that I get to stare at this face all the live long day?
I've just been thinking about how just next month - my cute, adorable, handsome little "baby" will be 2 years old! Eeeeeek! I can't even think about it. January 26 to be exact, my little guy will have lived 2 whole years. It feels like just yesterday that I brought him home from the hospital. How is he already almost TWO? I haven't even started to plan his Birthday yet!
An interesting tid-bit - when he turned 10 months, he started throwing tantrums like I couldn't believe. I've said before that he's "difficult", what I meant is that he's just sensitive and hard to calm down. But lately, like the last few weeks, he's been so pleasant, it's been a different change of pace. His personality literally changed before my eyes. He's a completely different kid now than he was even a couple of months ago. I'm not sure if it's the new house, or what - but he's just such a joy to be around. (he's always been a joy, but with less tantrums now.) He loves to just sit and watch movies with me, cuddle, interact... it really is so much fun. The tantrums still show their ugly faces, but he's much easier to calm down now than he used to be. Redirection definitely works now, thankfully!
I'm hoping that he's turned a leaf and he already went through his "terrible two's" before he even turned two. I guess we'll see! ;-)
Here are a few things he loves:
Curious George, hide n' go seek, hamburgers, anything electronic, hugs, kisses, cuddles (this is new!), flavored water, oatmeal, Toy Story 3, Despicable Me, Disney, climbing, running, shoulder rides, helping mommy with dinner, nap-time, vacuuming, sweeping, all the things that "grown ups" do, playing in the garage, his friend Dane, his cousins & aunts, his grandma... on & on & on.
He's still not talking much, but he's getting better at finding ways to communicate to me what he wants. We're working on it!
I LOVE MY LITTLE GUY SO MUCH!
