no baby

Ode to my baby boy...

Little climber (taking after his uncle J-RAD, rock/ice/anything climber!)

He's climbing, running, jumping... Curly is not a baby anymore!


Guy Smiley, eat your heart out!
I can't believe how fast he has grown up! I suppose it helped that he practically grew up in our wards Nursery... Time flew by for me so quickly, I almost wish it went by a second time. His personality is so cute and coming out more and more every day. This is the kid who wakes up happy, goes to bed happy, and sleeps peacefully. That is, until one older brother wakes him up by jumping on him! :)
Helping daddy clean our carpets

He currently has a crazy obsession with balls. He refuses to say easy words like 'toast' or 'more', but he pronounces very articulately "soccer ball" and "basket ball". Apparently there are priorities!
Jumping for joy!
All tuckered out...

You can count on him to bonk his head at least 5 times a day, and he has the bruises/goose eggs to show for all of them. He is a chunker at 25 lbs (can you say mom's back hurts???) He idolizes Lincoln. He still gives his mama great snuggles. He can't wait to play soccer with daddy every day. He loves being tickled. He lets you know (and the rest of the world) when he doesn't like something. He is a VERY driven and determined little fellow, and he never forgets. Translation: I can not distract this kiddo. He has an infectious laughter. He has NO FEAR. He loves water play. He's a great dancer. He is into moms shoes. And he's so cute he can almost get away with being a rascal!

So manly!

We sure love you, little man! You add so much joy to our lives.

I cannot believe how HUGE he is now! Do you remember how we used to hide him under a table during nursery so he wouldn't get trampled! And NOW he's running around, talking and playing along with the other kids. He's just as big as them. You would never know that he isn't 18 months yet! And his obsession with balls is hilarious! lol! I can't believe how fast the time has flown by! Isn't it weird how sad and exciting it is for you to see your kids grow up! lol! One thing is for sure, he is definitely not a baby anymore! Poor mommy!

He is getting so big! How old is he now? Kennedy is just like that...climber, no fear. Maybe she should have been a boy! Or better yet, they should get married one day. haha!

He's a cutie! It is hard to believe how fast they grow up. Our parents always told us that would happen but I wasn't convinced.
