This little guy is growing up waaay too fast. He has recently started walking, which I was wondering if he was ever going to get around to. He has seemed perfectly content crawling faster than I can run and occasionally walking on his knees.
I used to think that Charlie was a handful of a baby, and then I had my boy, Judah. Goodness gracious he keeps me busy. Today I had to lift the grate off the top of the heater in order to extract about a dozen crayons and color pencils that he decided to hide in there while I turned my head for five seconds.
But he is oh so sweet. There is nothing I love more than a smile on one of my kids' faces. I mean, look at him! Couldn't you just eat him? And he's still such a cuddler. I finally realized the other day that what I thought were cute sounds that he makes are actually words. He says "mook" when he wants to nurse, and "aye ya ya" means "I love you" (i think) when he's waving good-bye. He's just growing up so fast.
Here's a short clip of some of his first steps:These photos and the one above were taken by my very talented friend, John. You can find his website here.
