Our little baby man recently turned 15 months (almost 16now, oops!) and a lot has changed since his first birthday. For memories sake I wanted to write them down since I am pretty bad about a baby book. But, I WILL do it eventually! ;)
Westin now weighs 22lbs 15oz. He is 31 and a half inches. I am horrible because I never really documented when he started walking. He had been taking steps for a while, but had never really taken off. So, it was kind of gradual. I know it was around 14 months, so I am going with that ha! He is practically running now. He is quick. The cry of indepence has never been so loud. He never wants to be held now especially if we are outside. He wants to be down to explore immediately.
He says a lot of words. And I am seriously amazed at the things he understands just can't communicate. Just yesterday I FINALLY heard the words "Momm-mmy". It was the sweetest sound ever, since this kid is a daddy's boy through and through! He was so proud of himself after he said it and started clapping. Maybe it was becasue I got sooo excited too and may have clapped and jumped. ;)
He is a ham! I am thinking he might be my funny child! When we are in the car, he will lay things on his head, then start laughing out loud! So, we will turn around to look.
OUTSIDE! If you say the word, he runs to the door! Even just when we put his shoes on, he starts saying "bye bye!" The boy love to just be outside. He will walk from thing to thing and has the best time "exploring."
Believe it or not, this kid is ALL boy already. I find myself having to entertain him with more boy friendly things, because goodness knows this boy isn't a shopper and isn't too fond of stores! He lets me know about it and goldfish only last so long! ha!
Some sweet things I want to remember.
When he wakes up from his nap, I will kneel down and stick my head to the bars of his crib and he will remove his paci give me the biggest kiss, then stick his paci back in. Love it.
He will back up to sit in my lap when he is standing.
He runs and screams with a big smile when he gets excited.
He is fascinated at books and will sit in your lap and point jibber jabber the whole time.
When I do excercises in the living room, he will try so hard to jump! It's too cute!
When I ask him to do something, sometimes he will shake his head no.
He will look and point to me and say "Mommy."
He is seriously the Joy in my heart everyday. A hard day and one look or thought about him and I am immediately reminded how blessed I am. So thankful for this boy. :)
Soon I will update pics!
