Aleks is almost 15 months old. FIF. TEEN. MONTHS. Whaaaaa?!?!?!?! How did this happen? Where is my little cuddly chunky baby? oh yeah. He turned into a full-blown toddler. My heart leaps as I see him growing and learning yet breaks as he slips farther away from babyhood.
Right now he LOVES Elmo, Elmo, and oh yeah, ELMO! He says a few words: mama, sigh (outside), whasahhhh (what's that), whassisssss (what's this), da (dad), baba (bottle), no (no), beep (nose), la-la (elmo)...and I'm sure I'm leaving out a few, but that's all that comes to mind right now.
He can climb on the couch by himself.
He loves to watch Elmo on the iPad and on my phone.
He loves to eat bananas and still loves to eat jarred baby food.
He is bow-legged. (still haven't gotten a great pic of that!)
His hair keeps getting lighter and lighter!
He sleeps like a champ!
He HATES to have anything on his feet - and works very hard to get them off!
He loves his big brothers.
He loves to snuggle and be tickled by daddy.
He is now giving closed-mouth kisses. :)
He has 14 teeth.
He loves music and loves to dance!
This little man is a joy to have in our family, and I am falling deeper in love with him every moment.
How did I get so lucky?
