I still watch videos and look at pictures of him when he is asleep and then before Kasey and I head to bed we discuss how there couldn't possibly be a cuter happier child than Ezra. Classic parents.
Says: mama, dada, dog (sounds like dah), yeah, and uh-oh ( sounds like uhhu).
Form of transportation: strictly walking, since he learned to stand where he falls. No furniture or parent support needed. (Been walking since 9 1/2 months and shortly after figured he liked it better and learned to stand by himself when he trips or falls down).
Sleeping: 11-13 hours at night and takes 2 naps a day. Usually 1 1/2-2 hours each.
Eats: Pretty much only table food now. I usually try to squeeze in one puree a day but he will tire of that soon. The only thing he consistently won't eat is bananas; which is funny because he used to love eating them, he still loves them in foods. Maybe its that they are slimy when he tries to grab them and eat them. Nurses once a day (in the morning) and then has 3 bottles.
He also still loves music but has yet to dance or clap. I am looking forward to those things in the near future.
LOVES wheels and keys. If I let him get down to walk at the zoo or grocery store, the first thing he goes for are the wheels on the stroller or cart. Yesterday at church he went and made friends with a man in a wheel chair. He was in heaven because the wheel was as big as him. You can often find him with one of his small cars spinning the wheel with his pointer finger. Usually entertains him during car trips to the store.
He clicks his tongue. Usually a solid 5 minute game for us, going back and forth.
Does fishy face kisses. If I start making a kissing sound, he will do it back to me. We are working on "blowing" the kiss.
He shares with us. While he is nursing or drinking a bottle he will try to put his binky in our mouths, sometimes it gets forceful, as in he gets offended if we don't take his gracious offering. I mean truly, it is one of his highest prized possessions.
He really is just the happiest baby, yes he is still a baby even though he looks and acts more
toddler-ish these days. Even if he has missed a nap or is really tired, he can still be so happy. People are constantly telling me how happy he is, it is the truth. He is fun! We also always get comments on his blonde hair and big blue eyes. He is cute!
We love you Ezrus. And yes, you will always have a million nicknames (thanks cousin Jetta for this one).
*This photoshoot had to be while doing one of his favorite activities, rather than on our bed, because he is far to active these days--Below Ezzy asks, "Who me?"....Don't mind the dirty window with the cutest little hand prints I ever did see.
