Henry - 14 months

Thursday, October 13, 2016

Another month has come and gone and Henry is getting older, funnier, and sassier by the day!

Henry has loved being back home in Idaho, especially because daddy is home a ton more, and he gets to see his cousins every Sunday!

He is climbing into, onto and over everything in sight and pulling every pretty object off of mama's shelves that he can.

He signs "more" and it is the cutest. He also waves and says "hiiiiii" in a high little voice whenever strangers walk by.

If you say "I love you" he will make the kissy sound and it's the best thing in the world.

As of today he is finally using his walker to walk/run around the house.

Everything new gets a whispered "woooooow" or "ooooooh." And the ceiling fan still gets his [raise every time we turn it on.

He is always trying to create a mess in the bathroom, pulling pots and pans out in the kitchen, and trying to climb over the gate to the stairs (don't worry, it'll be safe from him for a while longer).

He is our little engineer. He is always trying to figure out how things work, and is always taking things apart and putting them back together. Anything with a lid, or an opening that he can shove things into is automatically his favorite toy.

He keeps us busy, to say the least. But I can honestly say that this is the MOST fun we have ever had and we LOVE our goofy boy!

Henry - 13 months

Saturday, October 8, 2016

I know that some people frown upon referring to anything over a year in terms of months, but the truth is that one month can make such a difference. Henry is still growing, changing, and adapting right before my eyes.

This last month has been my very favorite. We have been able to share some incredible experiences, since he turned a year old, including a trip to my favorite place on the Oregon coast, and Disneyland! Henry is becoming so much fun. Since he was just a few days old people have been commenting on how expressive and full of personality he is, and that hasn't changed one bit. But, we are starting to see that with personality comes attitude. Our feisty little guy is learning to throw some pretty good fits, and we are trying to nip that habit already!

He LOVES airplanes. He can hear and spot one before most of us, and picks his airplane toy (and any other toy really) and makes it fly around making airplane noises.

He says "woof woof" when he sees a dog (or anything resembling a dog: his sloth, mickey mouse, ok really any animal is a "woof woof." But, when he says it it sounds more like "vvvfvvfvvvf" and it's the best. He puts his whole body into it too.

He is finally starting to eat more solid foods, but still will only take a bit at a time.

We can't let him anywhere near the bathroom or he is at the toilet licking anything he can, and dumping out the trash.

He is a "hoot" as some would say, and we love the heck out of him!
