Archive for December, 2013

How has it already been a month? Yet a month it has been. Thomas is picking up words all of the time (Celery! Louie! Aunt Meme!) and pretty close to running. He is climbing and adventuring and having a blast. He loves walking through potholes and into puddles. He loves trucks and the fires and dancing to music. He’s been sleeping well still (knock on wood!) and his eighth tooth came in, plus I think the 9th is on its way. He is full of little boy mischief, and we are starting to need to teach him what is acceptable and what is not.

We road tripped down to my parents’ house for Christmas, and the little boy was a champ – he slept almost the whole way there and back. He (we) had a week of Christmases, and the favorite gifts seem to be his Thomas-sized broom, his table & chairs, his little red wagon, and anything with wheels or that can be used to build! Thanks to all of you who gave gifts. He is a very fortunate little boy.

Just made it to G-Ma’s house!

Throughout the visit, he would climb into the wagon and ‘request’ that we pull him around the house.

Best part about G-Ma and Grumpy’s house? Being able to help build the fire.

Thanksgiving and More

Thomas has been a busy boy these last few weeks. He’s developed an obsessive love of the record player and the wood stove, he visited with his Grumpy and G-Ma who came to town for Thanksgiving, and he took an epic expedition through the woods near Ellsville Harbor State Park. That particular trip was so epic, that we could not take time for photographs. However, here’s a few pictures of other recent events.

Enjoy.

Have you seen this thing? This thing is so great!
