We had so much fun with our extended family in Florida this spring. Like SO much fun! Elias loved being around his cousins so much that he still talks about it all the time. I feel so blessed to have married into such an awesome family. When the fun in the sun is this big, the pictures speak for themselves...
My sweet sweet Henry. You have the most bubbly personality and are such a social little guy. You love to be in the action and need very little sleep to run on full energy. You bring so much joy into our family and being your mommy is a huge blessing! Your straight-mouthed smile just gets me every time and melts my heart. You aren't quite walking yet, but you say a few words. My favorites are "uh-oh" and "mamama"! You love your brother so much and even though he's pretty rough with you, he loves you too. You are starting to hold your own with him though and it's fun to watch. I'm so excited to watch you as you continue to grow. I love you so much!
My sweet little Henry! You have grown so much in the last month! You walk around pushing chairs and walk your way around the ottoman. You also love to eat and will eat just about anything (when you aren't throwing your food on the floor). You have 6 teeth and the cutest smile and giggle. You love copying your big brother and playing with him when he's not pushing you around. You absolutely love when daddy gets home from work and if I say "Daddy's home," you look straight at the door. You are most definitely still a mommy's boy though and I just love hanging out with you and making you laugh. Your personality is shining through more and more and I love watching you grow. I can't believe it's been almost a year since you were born!
Looking back at the changes over each month is so crazy and fun! You are almost a toddler!!!
It's amazing the ways your grow each month Henry. You crawl around so speedily I can barely keep up. You LOVE to say "no" and it's probably one of the cutest things I've ever seen. You still barely need any sleep at all to function so joyfully. I can't even believe it. You sleep less than Elias on most days and you are always happy. Well, almost always happy, you are most unhappy at bed time. I honestly think that it's because you know you are missing out on some sort of fun. You are such a chatterbox. You babble on and on and I'm certain you think we can understand you. I think you will be talking early like your brother. I can't help but laugh every time you flee as fast as possible when I come after you for trying to put something in your mouth or touching something you know you shouldn't. When you do that you laugh SO hard I can't help but laugh along. I just couldn't enjoy time with you more if I tried. You are so fun to be around. I love watching you grow and am so blessed to be your mommy.
This picture reminds me so much of my little sister Erica's baby pictures which makes me think he must look more like our side of the family than I think. He is also feeling much better than in last month's picture!
And the lovely outtakes!
