Lately, you've been over the top
and I thought I'd show you a few pictures and share some stories to show you just how.
You've been over the top cute when we go shopping. At the grocery store you pick random people to say "Hi" to...and you'll tell them "Hi! Hi! Hiiiiii!" until they look at you :)Or the other day when we were shopping at the thrift store...you were getting tired...luckily there were suckers at the cashier's desk. You became one happy boy once you got one of those in your mouth! Sucking on your candy and playing with your reflection in the mirror while I tried on clothes :) Too adorable!
You've also been rather sneaky lately...and you've definitely taught me to I need to put any open bags of chips (or any opened food packages for that matter) up high in the pantry ;)Oh, and a couple weeks ago I let you run around in the nude...and you decided to let loose. Well, while I was cleaning up, you leaked again! HA! Another lesson you taught me...next time I'll put a clean diaper on you first, then clean up the mess ;)
Thanks to the splash pad, you've become so much more brave around water! :) I absolutely love watching you tromp through the water and run through the gurgling fountains. Last time we went with your Aunt Becca and cousin Samson, they brought watermelon & strawberries and you couldn't get enough in those chubby cheeks of yours :) And we were there for so long that you got the cutest flip-flop tan line I think I've EVER seen.
You're also brave when it comes to climbing...you are scaling everything in site, or at least trying :) Couches, chairs, ottomans, the kitchen bench, and yesterday your rocking chair (which is pretty tricky). And once you made it, you were pretty darn proud. As was I :)
You and your daddy are quite the jokesters ;) The other day when he was putting your PJ's on he pulled up your pants so high you looked like a mini grandpa! HA! And you thought you were pretty hilarious...which you were...I couldn't stop laughing :)And yesterday while we were waiting at the doctors (no one's sick, just a check up:) I pulled up a chair for you to check out the fish...you LOVED it and made sure everyone in the office knew. "Oooohh! OOOH!!" you'd exclaim. Then you'd look back at me to make sure I was seeing the fishes too :) You couldn't have been any sweeter.
And another story, that I don't quite have a picture for... Yesterday we were having a tickle fight. Both of us having a grand ol' time ;) When you randomly pointed behind me and said, "baaw!!" (which means ball, or really any toy that you want). I looked and there was nothing behind me...I then look back to you, ready for some more tickles, and you're running off totally snickering! You are one sneaky, smart little man. haha!!
Thank you for always making your Daddy and me laugh, and making my heart more happy than I ever thought it could be. I love you forever Brooks!!
