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

You brighten all of our days with your silly looks!  You love to swim at Mimi's and Pawpaw's and play in all the new toys they get you.  This is a pretty fun stage because you are curious and wild, but then love to give cuddles and kisses.

I love you to pieces, bug!

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

Caught in the act!  You love tearing apart your play mat now that you figured out the outside edges come off.  It's pretty much your favorite thing to do, and it's giving me a glimpse into the future about how you will be demolishing all your toys.  Yikes!

I love your wildness!  I love your sweetness!  I love everything about you so much it hurts!  (I know that is so cliché to say, but its true!)

You are just way too cute, bug!  I don't know what we are going to do with you once you really start working your charm and knowing what you are doing...we're in trouble!  

You are the sweetest, silliest, wildest and funniest baby we could have asked for, and we are grateful for you!

(And just look at your little curled toes!!!)

My little wild man!!!  You are wild, but you are also a cat napper.  We're working on consolidating those and getting you on a 2 nap a day schedule.  (Right now you have been napping for over an hour in your room!  Yippee!!!)  Even when you don't get good naps, you are just as happy and joyful as always.  I love that about you.  (You're my little dream baby!)

This week you started sticking your tongue out at us, and it cracks your papa and me up every single time.  The best is when you smile real big and then stick the tip of your tongue out just a little bit for us to see.  I think you think it's funny too because every time you do it and see us laugh you crack up too.

I can't tell you enough how much I love getting to spend every day with you.  It makes my heart completely happy!  (Even on the rough days!)

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

A day late.

The days just keep getting better and better.  You are definitely finding your voice more and more each week, and the noises are just too funny!  They range from sweet coos to crazy spits, and we love every single one of them!  You love to "sing" when we're in the car (or anywhere you hear music) and when we rock you to sleep.  It's the sweetest noise ever when I know your tired and a little fussy and then all of a sudden you start making little humming sounds.  That's a clear sign for me that you're about to fall asleep.

One of my favorite things lately is your little milk mustache after you nurse.  It only happens when you fall asleep nursing, and it has to be the cutest thing in the world!  (I know I say that about all the things you do, but this is at the top of the list.)  You just look so innocent and peaceful, and it makes my heart melt!

You make me one happy mama.  If I could have a million babies just like you I would!
