This weekend marks baby’s 11 months of life and 6 months with us. So in keeping with the milestone tradition, I’ll share 11 things over the next two days that make us smile about our little guy.
1-2-3 His love of all things water. That means he’ll plunge into the ocean, tub, and, unfortunately, toilet just as fast as he can.
A little story about the pot stirring: It was Tuesday, midday and we had just finished our lunch. I put baby on the floor and took the dishes to the sink. In that time (keep in mind we have a small, small house), baby had busted a move to the bathroom. By the time I made it to the bathroom, baby had managed to throw a shoe, some mail, and his hair product in the toilet and then vigorously started stirring it with his arm. The bathroom wall lines up with my office wall where my desk is so I grabbed the camera stat to capture the grossness in all its glory. I bathed baby and myself in Purell and soon it was time for him to go down for his nap. You can imagine how my stomach turned when baby tried to stuff his fist into my mouth while drinking his bottle to go down. As my sister said, “You just don’t know if you missed a spot.” The toilet lids are now shut and we’re contemplating going the Tina Fey route in Baby Mama since we have one determined little boy.
4. His curiosity. He is just so interested in so many things. When he concentrates like this, it sorta breaks my heart.
5. His latest little quirk. I love little kids’ quirks. They just make me happy. And our little kid’s latest quirk is that he pops up from his crawl like a Meerkat, extends his hands like the Heisman trophy, makes a hissing noise and then claps. What can get better than that?
Look for items 6-11 tomorrow!
