Funny how much has happened in the last month.
Little D went from toothless wonder to a jack-o-lantern.
He's still just as crazy as can be, rocking on his rocking horse and humming little songs to himself.
Oh, and we got our BOB again. The 2011 this time. I'm pretty sure there is nothing else they can do to make it better, it is AWE.SOME. Can you tell we are so so excited?!?!
Funniest thing to me is that even though we have a cat of our own [and a very patient and loving one at that], little d insists on going to visit TC ["the cat"], our neighbor's cat [across the street], every time he sees her in their yard. He'll say "awww, mew??" and bend down to her level before he goes careening straight at her. And he gets VERY insulted if she ignores him. Like this pic... denied! I'm pretty sure she is the only cat on the planet that meows more than the Kevs.
Sleeping has been... interesting. We are still fluctuating between one [mostly on Sundays due to church from 9-noon] and two naps. Teething has brought with it inconsolable, ear-piercing screams from about 3 or 4 to 6am about once every 4 to 8 days. Not cool, but I know it's not his fault and try to make sure he is properly Orajeled and Tylenoled when I know he is teething. I think he is up to five and a half teeth now? Thanks to eliminating bottles, bedtime routine is much more efficient and he goes down to bed quicker at naptime and at night [8pm]. We're working our way through a cold so he wakes up caked in mucus, poor thing. TMI?
Mickey Mouse clubhouse songs [or just dancing in general], using "help" signs ALL THE TIME to the point that its making him lazy, volleyballing with balloons, screams of "ba-aaaall!" "more!" "no!" "yeah yeah", and overall hand gestures with "five little monkeys" "itsy bitsy spider" and "wheels on the bus" have made little d into quite an entertaining child to play with and really very pleasant to be around. I love that he tucks his stuffed puppy into the nook of his arm when he falls asleep snuggling in my arms, he sings when he wakes up [and before he goes to sleep... usually a song that goes "no no no baaaaaalll no no no noooo"] and MAN he is just so so stinking cute. I love this kid so much more with each passing day.
Happy 15 months, little bugaboo!!
Thanks for making my the happiest mommy there is!!
