13 months

Dear Emanuel,

You're 13 months old Buddy! It seems like since you turned one time is going by even faster (if possible) - you're actually almost 14 months as I write this! I decided to keep writing you letters each month since I haven't kept a baby book at all for you. So I'll probably just write a little letter each month and include the new and fun things you're doing or certain milestones I want to remember. Yes, I'm going to keep making you wear monthly stickers, but don't worry...I'll let you wear pants now. And you're no longer confined to your crib with Maxx for photo shoots. I decided I want this to be as easy as possible, so who knows what our pictures will look like each month? This month you were a little sick when I took these with some kind of fever virus, so I didn't make you take that many. But I still love capturing your sweet face each month - you change so fast!
-You love to sing all of the time. Whether riding in the car, sitting and playing, or eating dinner...you often times are just humming. It's SO cute. 
-You have started to give mommy kisses! If I make a kissy face and say mmmm, sometimes you'll run over and give me a kiss. But sometimes you just ignore me. :) Either way, I love the kisses I do get!
-You are obsessed with toothbrushes. Like in a crazy crazy way obsessed. When you see daddy or I brush our teeth, you start grunting because you want a toothbrush, too.
-You have favorite places or "go to" spots in each room in our house. For example, if we go to the office/craft room, you immediately run to the closet and get in a basket where I have some suckers left over from your birthday party. You love to pick one up and carry it around with you. It's the first thing you go for every.single.time we step foot in there.
-You have a few new nicknames this month, thanks to your cousin Ellie. She always says, "Hey little Manny guy!" or "Hey little Bubbers guy!" when she sees you. Love it. :) And your Aunt Jenny and I have somehow started referencing you as a wittle bitty, teeny tiny, baby boy. Funny, I know, since you're not exactly a baby anymore...but we like to pretend! :)

It's been another fun month Manners! You love being outside all of the time, and we are having such a great summer together. I love you baby boy. XOXO.

Love, Mommy


  1. Awwww. He is sooo adorable. Great picks. Manny is growing up too fast.

  2. It seems like just yesterday I was reading your pregnancy announcement! Manny is such a handsome little man!

  3. I feel like I can't stop these updates either. I have been doing a baby book too but I just love the stories and fun details that never fit quite right into a baby book! :)

  4. He is so sweet! It is amazing how fast time flies! Our little man just turned 18 months old yesterday!

  5. He is just too cute!! Time flies by SO fast with little one's...I just want to freeze time somedays!


  6. He looks like such a sweet little man!!

  7. Love the monthly stickers I wish I would have gotten those for G. We have the truck ones. I hope Manny is feeling better!

  8. He will ALWAYS be a wittle bitty, teeny tiny, baby boy to me! As always, I LOVE the pictures and narration by his loving Mama. He is SO lucky God picked YOU and Pat to be his parents!
