It has been our "count the months" day. Which is so much fun, as so much happens in these fast precious months of our son's first years.
Today marks 16 months.
And today he did one of my favorite things yet.
We love reading books. This farm book is one of our favorites.
As we turned to this page, we asked Ben where the kitty was on the page. And sure enough, he pointed to it. And my heart swelled with pride at this new little marker of brain development/intelligence.
Other honorable mentions in this past week or 2 include:
- spinning around in circles (probably from watching Ms. Becka)
- walking himself all the way down the street on the sidewalk. (and his general love for the outdoors. He could be outside all day long if we let him)
-playing on this new slide
I love watching his personality develop too. He is so sweet. Loves to laugh. Cuddly. Is a little mischievous. has gotten pretty good with "no" so far (with a little work). Is fearless. And is kind and gentle with animals. And plays independently pretty well. I have been so lucky with how "easy" he is.
And it has gone by so fast.
And I am loving every crazy moment.
