It was a weekend of reasons to celebrate. First, Baker turned the big 1-0 months on Saturday. I could go on and on about how time flies and it seems like yesterday, and so on, but I won't bore you with that..again. So, I will just say that we are insanely blessed with the most precious baby I could ever imagine. He is just so sweet and smart and funny. His personality comes through more everyday. With that comes more of his opinions and feelings, but I love that he is healthy and happy.
Second, we celebrated our 2 year anniversary!
Brent is the best husband ever! He is so giving and unselfish. He takes care of the house work like no man I've ever known. He is a devoted father, talented actor and singer, sports enthusiast, and sound mimicker. I wrote this in a blog long ago, but his ability to mimic sounds is amazing and very funny.
The best part is that he doenst even realize he is doing it. If he hears a tire squeak or a chair move or a loud machine of any kind he will make the same sound and its spot on.
He loves our baby boy so much and its wonderful to watch. They are BFF.
We also celebrated with Lauren & Brandon on Sunday at a baby shower to get ready for baby Alexis Rainey Rhoton. She had an awesome baby shower at the Tutwiler in Birmingham. We were excited that Glenn, Beth & Izabelle got to come stay with us last night afterwards also.
Since I love a list, lets do one in honor of Baker's 10 months!
Some of his likes and dislikes are as follows:
-Table food- I'm starting to see more of a love for table foods and less for baby foods these days
-Moving- He just doesnt want to sit still for long at all. He has to be up and moving, crawling, standing or walking! Toys are ok, but not his passion at the moment.
-Books- He is getting better at letting us read to him. Especially if he is a little sleepy. He likes to turn the pages (with great force I might add)
-His paci- I know I created this monster but I just don't know how we would have survived these 10 months without the good old Nuk pacifiers. LOVE them.
-To be "gotten"- particulary he loves for people to "come at him" this makes him laugh every time. You start from far away and then "come at him" in any kind of way and he will laugh a whole lot.
-The fireplace- Why? Why must you run straight for the jagged edge of the brick fireplace? Its wearing me out.
-Zoe- self explanatory. He just lights up when she is there. Laughs at absolutely everything she does.
-Big crowds- the more the merrier for our little socialite. He is just happier in a crowd.
-Outdoors- sadly we havent been out much in a while. Its just way too hot and Baker's Dozen is a sweater. I can't wait for fall to get back to our afternoon walks.
-Getting a diaper change- This just cuts into his busy time and he doesn't care for that
- Getting his nose wiped- I'm not a fan of the snotty-nose-kid so I'm constantly wiping and he hates it.
-Getting put into his carseat
-Going to bed before he is ready
-the transition from bath to towel. He has always hated this for some reason. Complains every time.
UPDATE: he has quickly been taking more and more steps. They said once they take a few on their own the walking happens very fast. He certainly has "stepped it up".
