one and a half

My Little B had his half birthday yesterday! I was going to make a half birthday cake and everything, but I think we'll wait and have that little belated celebration on Sunday ;)
18 months.
18 MONTHS!
Goodness our boy is growing up much too fast. I know it's cliche to say...I mean I don't want him to stay little forever, but I would love for him to stay in each of these darling little stages a bit longer... *sigh* Thank goodness for photos and videos that capture his sweetness for me to enjoy over and over again, especially as he gets older :)

Here's a few videos of Brooks that make me smile and laugh every time I watch them...enjoy :)

Background story for "Oranges":
He is such a little thinker!! He wanted to hold all of those little clementines at once...watch to see his smarty-pants method ;)

Background story for "Wall licker":
Brooks starting licking this wall (whaaaaaaa?) so of course I reacted with an "eeeewww Brooks! Don't lick the wall"...which he thought was hilarious, so he continued to do so! The more I said "eew!" the more he licked. yikes. (this video is a bit loud, so you may want to turn the volume down)

Background story for "Popcorn popping":
Little B has loved the primary song "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree" for months now! He'd smile while I sang, and clapped for more when I'd finish. And just this weekend he started doing to fun signs with me! Oh he makes me one proud Mama! And please excuse my awesome morning voice, and Brooks stellar bed head ;)

Hudson just laughed soooo hard watching Brooks lick the wall. HAHAHA. I wish you could have heard him. Then when the video ended & you said Bye Bye...Hudson said "Bye Bye Baby! See ya later!". They're young cyber friends, already.

My favorite is the pop pop pop video. He is just so precious. :)

He's getting so big! He's such a sweet little boy! I can see how he has been such an entertaining addition to your family. And all the videos just made my heart melt! Especially the one with him licking the wall--haha he's got such a wonderful sense of humor, and definitely had me laughing out loud watching him maneuver all of those oranges. Hahaha I really really hope we can see you guys soon! <3
