I enjoyed my last Sunday Sweetness post so much that I think I may just make it a weekly thing, or at the very least a bi-weekly thing. I hope you don’t mind. I love recapping the week and starting the next week on a happy, positive note. Not to mention that these sweet moments are the ones I want burned into my brain, never to leave. But since I suffer from the: I’ve-had-three-babies-so-therefore-I-have-perpetual-mommy-brain disease, I need to write them down, have them be permanent somewhere or risk the chance of them being lost into the abyss of the mommy brain.
My Buggy! Well, full name is Love Bug Babalicious thank you very much! He is 14 months old this month. He has been growing so much, and way too fast in this mommy’s opinion. In a short few days he has learned to climb the stairs <insert panicked mommy face here>, cruise around the coffee table in the family room, wave bye-bye, and say “Thank You” in his ever so cute as a button way of “Daaa-Dooo, Daaa-Dooo” and some version of his brother’s names that I can’t even begin to type.
He has been pointing at things and telling me all about them in his adorable baby babble. He has been able to climb up into his brother’s stuffed chairs and act like he is literally the king of the house giving what sounds like order and direction to his faithful subjects. He loves to open and close, and open and close, and open and close my kitchen drawers. Just recently he loves to empty all the contents of said drawers but is smart enough to put it back after he’s done (mama taught him well). He already enjoys multitasking (do I finally have a child who represents part of me?) and will carry a block in each hand and one in his mouth while crawling/cruising/climbing stairs.
He has an amazing gift of love, when he gives you kisses when you ask him, you end up with an entirely soaked face and a strange awareness of where each and every one of his taste buds are (I know, that’s only a thing that a mommy could love…and I do, I SOOOO do). He will lay his head down on my shoulder and let out an adorable “awwwww” as he gives me a hug.
But he’s still a baby, he’s still MY baby. He doesn’t like to be left alone if there is the slightest hint that we are leaving a room. He still loves to snuggle with me in the same formed-to-my-body-position that he took as an infant while I’m rocking him to sleep. He loves to have his palm kissed and his face, cheek, and head caressed while trying to drift off to sleep. He loves when I sing Edelweiss to him and it immediately calms him down.
So while he is growing by Leaps and Bounds each and every day. I hang on to every piece of baby that is left. I soak it up, breathe it in, and bask in all that is Buggy for he will be taking the world by storm in just a few short blinks of an eye.
How have you recorded your children’s milestones when they were babies?
