I've decided to start my thankful month with my sweet baby. Archie is turning into such a character! He makes me laugh -- and grind my teeth in frustration, but for the most part he is really a joy. He is very good when I take him places and people are always commenting on how well behaved he is. And he talks very well. Of course, I can't remember anything clearly, but I am pretty sure that he talks better than the other boys at his same age. For a while he was saying, "yeah" to everything, but then he shifted to saying, "yesssssss" strong emphasis on the s, and now he says, "uh-HUH" all day long. Should we go eat breakfast? Uh huh! And the not so cute is me saying, "Stop hitting me," and him yelling back, "I want hitting me!" He asks me to "Hold you" whenever I walk down the stairs and his favorite show is Daniel Tiger's neighborhood. He'll walk over to me, touch my shoulder, put his little head to the side and say, "Tiger, pwease?" How can I resist?
He is still nursing once or twice a day so I'm enjoying our snuggles, without it being too much and resenting him. He also still likes to climb on my back and relax back there while I do things around the house.
He insists on saying pretty much every family prayer and we all have to use steely control to not completely erupt in irreverent laughter. He loves everyone in our family so much and likes to yell goodbye to the whole list every time we drive away from the house. They all think he's pretty great, too.
