Pate! You are such a mess! A wonderful, funny, sweet, cute, mess! You are so fun and are changing so fast these days. You love your sissy....her kisses, not so much! ha! She loves to kiss you and hug you but you want nothing to do with that. You love to wrestle with her though and get on her back and play rough....too rough if you ask me! ha! You love cars and tractors and now animals. Everytime you get out of bed, you want to look at and hold the piggy bank and horse on your dresser. You make this one generic sound for all animals...we're working on specifics! ha! You have gotten your second hair cut, because, man, that hair! You still have just four teeth but there are two more on top trying to peek through and your one year molars should come through soon. You've had your share of ear infections and colds this year. :( Hopefully no more! You wear size 4 diapers, size 12 month clothes and size 4 shoes. You don't talk much but definitely know what you want! You say Mama occasionally, Da for Daddy, nu-uh (while shaking your head, it's really hilarious!) for no, amen, and bye. You say "Uh"and point all. the. time. for everything else you want us to know. You LOVE to play in the bathtub and like to fill the cups with running water and get so mad when we turn it off. You have a repertoire of tricks like giving high five, praising the Lord, dancing, winking (blinking!), blowing raspberries and even spitting! You give the best open mouth kisses!!! :) You are soo good in the nursery in church and love to play. You sleep soo soo good! At least 12 hours a night! :) Last week, you started to make a pouty face and look down or go and hide your face when you get in trouble or don't get your way. So. funny. I know I shouldn't laugh, but I just can't help it. It's seriously the funniest thing. You ride on different things all day long. You walk/ride on your tractors, your four wheeler, and the tricycle. Daddy says as soon as you can reach those petals, you'll be off on that! A few things I want to remember right now are: how you put your hands behind your back, how you run and swing one arm, your sweet voice, your full belly laughs when I tickle you, your dance when you get excited, how you put one finger in your mouth all the time, you singing in the microphones, putting your hands together to pray, and even those throw down temper tantrums you throw! I love you soooo much and I know that God has an amazing plan for your life! I am honored to be your Mama and spend every day with you!
