It’s been a big month. You celebrated your first Easter, finally fit in 9 month clothes, and know way more than we give you credit for.
We started asking if you want to “go upstairs” before bed and you happily pass by all distractions and beeline for the stairs. You know Carl, Kenneth, Maurice, Templeton, and Pickles (your stuffed friends) plus mommy, daddy, Grandmama, Pappy, your “aunts” and “uncles” at work, Miss Lynn, James, Lawrence, and Justice. You love eggs with cheese, tomatoes, pears, and applesauce (mixed with kale or spinach because you won’t eat veggies otherwise).
And you have teeth! Two bottom ones and maybe someday, even more! You love to chew apple cores, carrot sticks, and, really, whatever fits in your mouth.
You’re standing and cruising around with ease and can free stand as long as you don’t know you’re doing it. Everyone says you are “busy” or “a mover” because you never want to sit or be still.
I feel like I’ve talked a lot this month about goals for you. I know you will have your own life and aim at your own things, but we pray that you know Jesus and the importance of his death and resurrection and our goal is that your corner of the world is full of people you care for and that care for you.
I can’t believe you’re almost 1, little bear. Your daddy and I can’t believe how much we love you.
