Bubba At 15 Months

Each day you learn and grow, it mind blowing to think about how much you have changed over the last several months. It was almost as though you went from baby to toddler overnight.

You are a very busy and active little boy. Nearly everyday, you pull the DVDs off the shelf and empty out my lower kitchen cupboards and drawers. You are fascinated with spice bottles, they are your favorite! You love taking the lids off, filling the bottles with treasure (your wooden blocks) and putting the lids back on.

You love to read! If I am not reading to you, you can often be found looking at a book on your own. Your favorite books right now are I Love You Through & Through, Five Stinky Socks, Piggy Paints, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Dinosaur Dance.

I love those little curls in the back.

Each day you look forward to feeding the chickens, watching them eat and collecting the eggs. Often you grab the egg basket out of the cupboard and run to the sliding glass door in anticipation of going to see the chickens. We frequently find you looking out the sliding glass door watching the birds.

You love dogs! Every dog is a puppy in your eyes, your face lights up each time you see one. You like to bark at them and pet them. You are super gentle with dogs.

You enjoy going to the park and climbing up the base of the slide and playing with the garbage can. You still have a strong dislike for the swings, maybe someday that will change.

You like to help Mommy and Daddy with anything and everything, you just want to be a part. When I sweep the floors, you carry the dust pan around. You throw everything including my books into the garbage. You like to help rotate the laundry, you put clothes into the washer and dryer. You are such a good helper!

Foods are hit and miss right now. One day you will love something and the next day you will not even touch it. You usually enjoy: bananas, apples, oranges, strawberries, gold fish crackers, olives, pickles, pancakes, eggs, macaroni and cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches. Each morning you look forward in anticipation to helping me drink my green smoothie and or freshly juiced greens.

Your favorite songs right now are Old McDonald and Popcorn Popping.

We sure love you, Bubba and are so blessed to have you in our lives!
