Daddy is his favorite. If I ask him does he love Daddy he shakes his head and entire shoulders yes, but if I ask him about the rest of us, he shakes his head no and says "uh-uh." Everywhere we go, when we see a truck or a tractor , he gets so excited and points and says Daddy! He says lots of words now! About 20. A few are cookie, up, Beau, milk, bye, hey, mimi, papa, daddy, mama, ball, balloon, bubble, uh-oh, book, and boat. He is still content to play by himself a lot but hates when Alabama and Pate wont let him play with them. He loves the water now, too. He likes us to sing "If you're happy and you know it" and he especially loves the stomping part. He is a climber and a jumper. Before he jumps off something, he swings his arms and "counts" to three. :) He will climb halfway out of his bed but hasn't tried to get down the otherside. Let's hope he doesn't! The funniest thing is when he rides his bouncy horse in his room and pretends to fall off the side until you say, "Oh, no! Don't fall off!" Then he slides back up and keeps riding and laughing! ha! He still plays peek-a-boo with me.
His little tickle voice is the most precious when he's tickling you. He loves to pretend he's a puppy and crawl on the floor and come to let you pet him. He doesn't love dogs in real life, though. Or cats.
Last week, he was so sick with a fever and I loved the extra cuddles and loving because he's usually too busy for all that! He has about 12 teeth now and weighs 25 pounds. He wears 18-24 month clothes and just got into a size 6 shoe. He is a pretty picky eater but does love most fruit and suddenly GUACAMOLE! :) Yay! Also, all and any dessert, of course. He's had his first boat ride and first trip to the beach this summer. He's a wild boy and tries to get away from me everywhere we go. He's so sneaky and looks back and smiles as he runs away. Alabama and Pate love him so, but he won't have anything to do with their kisses and hugs most days! Alabama gets in trouble every.single. day. for picking him up while he is steady screaming at her to stop. He is also very smart and knows so much! Alabama and I love watching him do new things and figure things out!
We love you Blue Baby and can't wait to see the amazing plans God has for your life! I pray that you will follow Him all the days of your life and walk in His ways. I'm so proud I get to be your Mama!
