Me and My Baby...




I know promised Mexico pics and I am working on that - promise...I am using a photo sharing site I have never used before so I am taking my time and making a slideshow. In the meantime though, I was sick of that Easter post/pic...so time for a change...Isn't my baby cute? He is almost 17 months old and I cannot believe how much he has changed. It seems like overnight he went from baby to toddler. I adore him; of course I adore all my kids but there is something special we "share" I don't know if is the difficult months of bedrest we shared or the fact that he is indeed our "last" one but he owns a very special part of my heart. Here is just a glipse of Christian these days...
-Walking and talking - lots of bables...
-LOVES to go /be outside - he'll bring us his shoes when he is ready!
-Giggles, giggles, giggles...
-Responds to his name, and other things like "bring the ball", go "bye-bye", "brush hair" and "bathtime"....
-Thumb sucker - just like sissy, (except he sucks his left)
-10 teeth and working on more...
-Has a little temper, fiesty like his Mama - screams and throws down his toys if he unhappy...
-Gets very jealous of Charlotte or Campbell's attention from us - will actally push them out of the way to sit on our lap or will come and sit at our feet...
-Has HATED his bath of late, screams and tries to climb out - what baby hates their bath?! UGH...but after lots of time in the water in Mexico he is liking it better!
-Loves to ride in the car or stroller
-Good eater and better sleeper - about 12 hours at night and still naps two times a day 1-2 hours each...
-LOVES balls - any and all...
-Loves the park and the swings...we could stay and he would be happy for hours...
-A little guy, my "smallest", just 20lbs. and is in the 25% for both height and weight - can still wear size 12mo. clothing...
-Loves to snuggle and cuddle...
-LOVES his bottle - wants nothing to do with a sip cup...if this was 1 or 2 I would not stand for it, but not with Christian...he's the last so I say "who cares"?! Is that bad?!...
-He is ADORED by both his brother and sister (he adores both too but definately shows a prefernce to his brother right now...shhh - don't tell Charlotte!)
-Favs: His blue silky&minky blankie, yogurt,sweet potatoes,fruit,toast,Busy Ball Hopper, the playroom, the kitchen (loves to empty the drawers!), any toy that is not a toy (cell, phone, keys, and remotes!)...
-Claps his hands when excited!
-Leans in for kisses...the cutest!

Well, I am sure you are dying to hear more (ha!) but I will wrap it up by just thanking God for the gift that is his life, things could have gone drastically wrong on Oct.18, 2007(or any day thereafter) until you were born to me on December 6, 2007, one of the best days of my life...I am proud to be your Mama and I love you Christian!

Sweetness defined... I loved reading the list. He and Lulu share a lot of similarities. Leaning in for kisses is my favorite.
