I have said before that it is impossible to put into words the love I have for Andrew, or for any of my three boys for that matter. Since I did Joey's six month post earlier today, I wanted to do a post for Andrew. I love everything about this little boy--his laugh, his smell, his fascination with smoke detectors, the way he puts his hands together to pray before each meal, the way he blows me a kiss when I am driving if he sees me looking at him through the rear view mirror, the way he cannot control himself when Mickey's Hotdog song comes on, and the list could continue forever. He is growing up so fast and developing such a personality.
He is picking up words left and right. I know that I will forget some, but here is a list off the top of my head. I will not list animal sounds since I did that in the zoo post.
- eat eat...and then puts himself in his booster
- boo boo and ow
- Paw Paw
- bump bump...when we are driving and hit a bump
- Tootles...from Mickey Mouse
- No No (with a finger shake, too:)
- cheese...when I am taking a picture
- whoa...when Joey was still shaky on sitting up and would topple over
He can also point to almost every body part when asked.
He still absolutely LOVES books. Reading is by far his favorite thing to do. He loves to crawl up in our laps with a book. He likes to hear the same stories over, and over, and OVER again. I can basically recite them all without even looking at the pages.
