Letters to Everett: 4/22/12


Snuggling with Daddy
On Sunday you will be 11 months old! You're turning more and more into a little man every day and soon you will be running all over the place.    You haven't taken any steps on your own yet but that doesn't stop you from getting where you want to go. You like to crawl and get into everything.  I think your favorite thing in the whole house is the toilet (don't worry I don't let you play in it!)  You like to bang things together and get into the things that you know you're not supposed to get into!

You weigh somewhere around 20 pounds and are getting taller by the minute. You love to eat chicken and steak and refuse any type of puree' (even though I have spent lots of time making them for you!) You want to feed yourself which is bittersweet because you are becoming a big boy.

You say "Daa-eee" (Daddy), "Daaa" (Dog), "Mommmma", and "Bec-ha" (Becca) very clearly and about a thousand other things that I don't understand yet.  We've been working on sign language with you.  So far you know "All done" and "arms up."  We are working on plenty more! :)

Your smile lights up my world and I don't know what your daddy and I would do without you. 

I love you to the moon and all the way back.
