He loves his toys and seems to take playing very seriously. The look on his face when he's pushing around his "corn popper" says, "this is my job and I want to do it well!" He walks around with Mr. Potato Head's hat on his head and ears in his ears. This morning he tried to use his Fisher Price keys to open the front door. While I was on the phone, he went and found his phone, held it to his ear and yelled "Hey-O!" (translation: hello). As I type this, he is twisting, flipping, pushing, sliding all of the zoo animals in his pop-up toy and then pushing them back down with his feet. He is all boy. He squeals excitedly as he bangs his toys together. He makes car noises as he pushes his lawnmower around the living room, plowing into every toy in his way until he rams into the wall. Next, I'm going to teach him how to "beep beep" as he backs it up. I wonder what it feels like to wake up every morning with only one responsibility: playing.
That is an excited face
Although he fought relentlessly to be picky for a few weeks, he lost that battle. Now, he is a champion eater and will take nearly anything we put in front of him; he even points and "asks" for broccoli. Love that! I am dreading having to wean him but with an impending necessary surgery (for me) before our departure for Africa, I figure I'll have to. For the most part, he is getting his nutrition from whole foods and raw cows milk and likely won't miss nursing as much as I will. Still, I have loved every minute of it and will continue for a couple more months before being forced to call it quits. At that point, I'll probably ball my eyes out. But, I just won't think about that.
I cannot adequately describe with words how wonderful it is to be his mama! The tears that well up in my eyes might better depict the joy I feel when I ponder that he is mine. I truly cannot believe how fast it is going and wish I could pause time. Yet every new day is exciting to watch all that he enjoys about life! I love my sixteen month baby. He makes life sweeter than I ever could've imagined it!
Yes, that is the chair on its side so Kyle doesn't climb on the table.
