Thirteen cute quips about my thirteen month old. Ok, well, twelve for those of you who are going to sit and count. Thirteen's an unlucky number anyway. Let's do this:
Sheep say bah, duckies say kah kah, kitties say (with a furrowed brow & pointed finger) No no no no!
When he wakes up, he points to one of his stuffed animals so he can hold it for the first few minutes he's out of his crib.
His current crazes are wallets, containers with lids and waffles.
He can walk. But he's a firm believer that crawling's more proficient.
He currently has approximately 487 teeth mutilating his gums. He reminds us with high-pitched squeals every 20 seconds.
He won't wear socks (or shoes). He plucks them off as soon as we put them on his feet. I could get away with this during the summer, but people are starting to give me whatahorriblemothernotputtinganythingonthatbaby'sfeetinthisweather looks. The ones who aren't quietly scowling straight up squat down to Carter's stroller and ask him where his shoes are.
Hats are not an option.
When he's laying in his crib, and I'm two seconds away from saying goodnight and closing the door, he blows me a kiss. He knows it will always get me right back over to that crib to hang out with him for a few more minutes.
When he's finished eating (or tired of being in his stroller, carseat or tub) he raises his hands above his head, makes eye contact with someone and declares, GAH! Translation: All done!
He always manages to take off his pajama pants and throw them in the exact same spot outside his crib.
He found my electric breast pump in a drawer last week and has been pulling it out, turning it on and bobbing his head to it's rhythm on a daily basis.
He's a self-proclaimed, baby vegetarian. He refuses all meats - pureed in potatoes, drowned in gravy, salted, baked, sauteed, covered in chocolate sauce - they land on the floor. Ok so I haven't really done the chocolate sauce, but do you think it'd work? Seriously.
What's your baby up to? Anything cute? Write in the comments below so we can share ideas (also, note your baby's age). Sometimes (like, now) I get in a slump and don't know what to teach him next or what he's capable of learning ...
