He was my super easy baby and if I had had him first I would have been spoiled (though Molly was pretty great, too.) He nursed right off the bat, slept well and just went with the flow.
He is a mama’s boy. For a looooong time he only wanted to sit in my lap and be held by me. He was happiest sitting near me and still is. If I’m sitting alone he comes over to be close so “you won’t be ‘whonely’, mom.”
He just got a new watch and when you ask him what time it is he answers, “it’s time o’clock.”
He calls his tongue his “licking thing.”
He loves to help! Sweeping, vacuuming, looking for eggs at Grandma’s house (she has chicken’s), cleaning sinks, bringing the trash cans in…if you have a job for him he is happy.
He gives the best hugs and squeezes extra tight.
He learned how to walk really early and taught himself to ride a bike and a scooter before his big sister.
He calls Molly “sissy” (pronounced ‘issy’) or “mowwy.” Be still my heart.
Rainboots are his shoes of choice every day of the week. He also adores anything with skulls so he can be like Jake on “Jake and the Neverland Pirates.” He also likes his hair styled “spiky.” We use gel and really get into our hair in the morning.
He used to love having his nails painted and for a (thankfully) short amount of time he wore dresses around the house. Must have been all the constant estrogen flowing around him?
He is amazing at puzzles and can build really intricate Lego houses. One night we put him to bed and thought he was asleep. Two hours later he came out with a massive Lego house, “Just for you, mom.” He built it in his closet with the door closed and the light on.
That’s it, for now!
Now…all I have to do is remember every single detail from now on and write it down in their baby books. I’m on it. Tomorrow, er….Friday?
