Eight…teen…months. (don’t cry. don’t cry) My big brown-eyed baby is growing into a little boy. I think this age is a turning point. I feel like Casen can really understand what we are all saying. I just smile inside every time he recognizes and remembers things, like his blankie. The other day the sitter said he went to the door and saw a lady with blonde hair walking her dog and he freaked thinking it was me, saying ‘Momma’ ‘Ma!’…son, I wish it would have been me.
I feel like I can see how much he is growing because I’m not at home with him every day. Saying more and more words. Not quite as talkative as his little girl cousins, Hazel and Addie, who were all born super close together. He can say ‘bayybee’ and ‘ball’ all day long though. He loved his visit to see baby Avery this month. And I think Halloween is going to be his fave holiday…pro trick-or-treater.
Oh Casen Blake I love your squishy cheeks and the way you get excited when I walk in the door. I love the way you give your daddy knuckles and high fives. I could live without the toy throwing and you climbing on the kitchen island, but I will not deter your independence and need for adventure. I love you so.
Not quite a year and a half but soon my baby will have his second half birthday. I’m treasuring every moment with him. His squishy little cheeks, his chubby little legs that I just can’t resist to put leggings on, his puffy little lips that make loads of smacks, tons of kisses and say ‘bye-bye’. His voice is the sweetest!
Casen is growing right on track…making his way in a size six shoe. Likes to dance. Lover of hats. His head is almost the size of his brothers! Solid for sure. This past month he has given it a test run. Doing tumbles on concrete, head banging the front door and hitting it himself in the midst of a tantrum. Needless to stay he is most likely to become a starting linebacker. He’s pretty fast too. I certainly can’t keep up…he’s in one room and sprints to the other. He has no fear. None. Especially when it comes to stairs.
This past month he visited his new baby cousin Avery, went apple picking with his Aunt Jessi, went to a few fun birthday parties and went thrifting with his momma.
