Is that inappropriate? But seriously, I'm having a drink. My baby is a big ol' 16 month old (in mom speak), a little over a year in normal people speak. He's cute. He's funny. He has recently (this week maybe?) learned to throw a FIT (less cute. but makes me laugh.) He also has learned to say "gaga" or cracker, which I desperately want to teach him means white people. I won't, but that's a joy of motherhood, right? no, I think that's a joy of Aunt-hood--because then it isn't YOUR kid that's weird. Am I right, Court?
The kids says a lot of words--most of which sound the same, but I know what he's talking about--which is clearly what matters (that and at the doctor's office. we don't want to fail a test.) He says toes, nose, eyes, mama, dada, gaga, something weird for sucker, plane, truck, dinosaur (or just sor, lets be real), hi, bye, the more (now pronounced moyyyyy), up, down, blows kisses, doesn't do anything on command, and would like to eat dog food. And a quarter if I had let him today. (I didn't, for the record.) He's started repeating. Mama needs to start remembering that part.
I can't imagine loving someone more. He cracks me up. He pretend falls all of the time. Still loves for us to feed him. Doesn't really love meat. Is obsessed with the dogs. I worry has OCD (wants to turn on the lights after nap and closes doors), still has all of his teeth and is getting more (yay....), told me he was "stuck" last night when he couldn't get out of his stroller, anddddddddd is having his second Thanksgiving this week. How is that possible??
2 years ago we announced we were having a baby at T-giving (except for to my sister who I had to tell early so she could cover for me for not having any vino.) We've come a long way.
Here's a video.
