Things I Don’t Want to Forget: Vol 14

You used to cry or seem frustrated when you wanted to do something, but I wouldn’t be able to understand you.  So, every time we were in this situation, I’d say “Show me” and give you my hand so you could lead me to what you want.  Well, now when you want something, you grab my hand and say “show me,” and it is too darn cute.

For about 2 months or so, I swear my scent would wake you up.  You’d go to bed around 8, but whenever I’d go to bed around 11, the second I lay my head on the pillow you would wake up crying or looking for me.  HOW!?

We went to the doctor a few months ago, and when he took out his stethoscope you said “heart!” and when he took out his othoscope you said “ear!”  I was so proud!  You gave him your ear, eyes, and let him listen to your heart like a big boy.

I think for a solid month, your favorite word was “Amokoto.”  I have no idea what it means, but you said it often and then often followed it with “A maaarket.”  I think it was your own little joke (or just something fun to say).

When you say “I love you” it comes out as “lahhhh youuuuu”

I used to always say “Hi, baby” to you.  I started switching to “Hi, sweetie” and suddenly you started to say it back!  It’s tooo cute.  Your daddy also says “Hi, son” to you.  Consequently, you started saying “Hi, son” back to him haha

We went hiking as a family on Mother’s Day, and it was the first time we let you run the trails by yourself (we put you in the Ergo when things got steep or rocky).  You refused to let go of your Lightening McQueen toy, so you held it throughout the entire hike.  At some point, you ran up to me and said “Hold it?” while holding up your toy, then you ran to your dad and said “Water, daddy?”  You chugged the water from your Paw Patrol sippy cup, said “Thank you, daddy” afterwards, and your daddy and I just stared at each other wondering how we brought about this sweet little human being.  That was the first time you’ve done something like that – so mature and so proper.

You’re at the point where you pretty much carry a toy car with you everywhere you go (and sometimes get sad when you can’t find the right one), and the #1 toy people like to get you are toy cars, so I guess it’s just destiny.  You are your father’s son.

You love babies!  You met your cousin Ava for the first time, and you gave her a kiss and wanted to hold her.  Oh, I pray we can give you a sibling one day.

The first thing you tend to say in the morning?  “Mommy?”  You also started climbing onto our bed, so I don’t know what to do about separating us anymore.

You’ve officially tried boba now, and you happily call it “bobo!”

One night you thought it would be a good idea to wake up at 3am… and sing the alphabet song.  Daddy woke up the next day wondering if he dreamt that or if it was real.  I confirmed it was definitely real.

Oh, the adventures you bring our souls these days…
