14 months

Dear Emanuel,

You turned 14 months old on July 17! We've had so much fun this past are some of my favorite things I want to remember.
  • Hands down, my favorite thing you started doing this month is giving hugs. I will be crouched down on the floor picking something up (perhaps something you previously flung across the room) and you will come up behind me and hug on my back and rest your head on me. It is the sweetest thing ever!!

  • Along those same lines, when we are holding you or giving you a hug, you pat us on the back. Seriously precious! 

  • You are ridiculously obsessed with blueberries. You will eat a whole container in a sitting if I let you!

  • You love to swing your feet. I don't know why but I think this makes you look like such a big kid.
  • You have discovered your strength and decided you should be He-man, and hoist everything over your head. Some things are still a little too heavy, but it sure doesn't stop you from trying!
  • You are a dancing machine. When any kind of music comes on, you get your bounce on.

  • You took swimming lessons this month, and totally scared and impressed me with what you were able to accomplish! It's not that I don't have faith in you, it's just that in my head you're still a teeny tiny baby, and it blows my mind that you can "learn" stuff already.

  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is still your favorite thing to watch, and when I turn it on you walk right over to your chair and plop down. It's so cute to see you sit and watch it for a little bit.
  • All you want to do these days is CLIMB!! You are very resourceful in your efforts to climb, and have been known to stack things to help you reach. I would really appreciate if you'd chill out on the're a mess!

  • You are now regularly waving & telling people bye. It always makes people's day when you do that!
You are such a fun little guy. Seeing you explore everything and try to communicate is such an adventure! I know I'll say it next month, but I think this is my favorite age so far. :) I love you baby boy. XOXO.

Love, Mommy


  1. GIRL! Manny is just getting cuter and cuter! Isn't it funny how when they were so tiny we could write these wonderful blog posts about their aging and progression, and give an update on everything, and now it's taking everything I have to get the time to snap a few pictures and put something up (even remotely close to being on time) HA!
