Ezra is ONE!

He still enjoys the occasional snuggle

He is very mobile – enjoying walking all over the place, but he still loves to be cuddled (for short periods of time).

He loves some books. He loves climbing in baskets, eating the foods he likes, toys, pulling all the shoes out of the shoe basket, the cats, music, Duplos, dancing and clapping, and his pacifiers.

He dislikes vegetables, being hungry or tired, being trapped in the stroller, being told no, or just generally being restricted in his movement.

Showing love by squishing

To review his mobility milestones:
Crawling: 4 months
Sitting: 5-6 months
Standing: 7 months
Walking: 10 months
Climbing: 11 months

And he FINALLY got 2 teeth at 10 months.

At 7 months we ended up in the ER because he had a skull fracture...

Lulu’s 21 months: Love & Hate

The fun, tantrumming, learning, growing, picky eating, opinionated toddler-ness is in full force.

Miss Lulu is full of opinions. Mostly involving the word, “NO.” And she believes we, her parents, are psychic and know that she wants this particular sock on her hand in this particular way. Or that the frog puppet is supposed to turn the pages, not me.

She is learning learning learning! She is quite the little sponge – learning letters, sounds, counting, shapes, new books, new ways to imagine and play – most of her imaginative play involves food and her stuffed animals.

1. Bath Time- Dave or I just have to say the word bath and it will send Lulu in a frenzy of excited signing, saying, “BATH!!!!! BATH!!!!!!!” over and over and pulling us toward the stairs as fast as possible...
