"A portrait of my child once a week, every week, in 2014."

Your new favorite activity!  I let you play this game once while I was trying to fold your clothes, and now that's all you want to do.  You crawl over to your dresser like you're on a mission and just start pulling everything out.  I know you could be getting into worse things, so sometimes I let you just go at it and take as much out as your little heart desires.  You're only little once!

Here you are trying on your beanie for your Halloween costume and not wanting to keep it on.  (Surprisingly, you left it on most of the night.)  You were the cutest little lumberjack ever!

It's so amazing seeing you grow up and discover new things and become your own little person.  I can't wait to see the boy and man you become, but I don't want this time to go by so fast.  Selfishly, I want you to stay my baby forever!  (I guess that's something all mamas struggle with.)

How did my baby turn into a little boy overnight?!  You are getting so big and wanting to do big boy things all the time.  You love walking around the house with your push walker and climbing up on everything.  You sure do keep me on my toes, and I have a feeling that it's only going to get worse from here on out.

Even though you're my little wild child, you're the sweetest boy this mama could ever want.  You still like to play with my hair when you nurse and give lots of snuggles when you wake up from a nap.  I want to bottle those moments up!

My little reader!  If you're not wanting to read your books, you're wanting to go over to your bookshelf and pull them all off.  You keep me busy straightening up!

Just like your papa, you like your meat!  All gone.

Welp, you skipped right over the bottle and now drink from a sippy cup.  I tried so hard for you to take a bottle when you were younger, and you wanted nothing to do with it.  (And still don't!)  Now you graduated to big boy status and like to drink your water out of a cup.  So much for all those "bottle training" days!  

I'm secretly glad you never liked a bottle.  Just means more nursing time!

You are one curious little monkey as of late.  You like to crawl around and get into everything which leads to some bumps and bruises (evidenced by that one on your forehead).  Anything that you're not suppose to have, you want!
