In the next year I WILL get weekly blogs done!!!! Building a house, not trying to miss a single moment of Ford growing and with it being SUMMER IN ALASKA, I don't remember the last time I could breath....
Milestones have come and gone, from lifting his head (okay he did that right after he was born!) to first words (DA-DA) to WALKING, he's done it all. We will be marking his FIRST BIRTHDAY off the calendar in 8 days! He will have lots of teeth (the count is at 11 and I think might be at 12 by then!), he is saying when he wants to, dada, dog, Elbe, papa, look, okay, hi and although he can say ALL of those, MAMA will not come out of his cute mouth! Dives me crazy, but I know it will be worth it when he finally does say it!
He does this really weird "rrrrrrrrr" -- rolling of his tongue, mostly when he is angry, but has been doing it more when he is happy, it makes me laugh every time because I have never seen a baby do it before.
He LOVES and I do mean LOVES, to dance, he has started "singing" with the music too, which melts me heart, he has gotten SO big in the last (almost) year it is just amazing to me! I know every mother says, "my baby is SO cute, smart, amazing," pick yours word... But it's true, babies are cute, smart, amazing, etc etc. they mature and grow so much in such a short amount of time. They go from being reliant on you for EVERYTHING to being little PEOPLE, Ford is currently playing BY HIMSELF, pushing his Hot Wheels Car down his little Farris Wheel toy, learning to do that by watching Luke and I put the wheebles down it, now he thinks ANYTHING that rolls can go on it! -- boys and their toys!
I can't wait to put pictures up of his birthday present, but that will Jane to wait until next weekend :)
Until then, here is a current picture of Ford!
