Guess how many months I am? What you can't read the blocks? Well if my mom wasn't so slow she might actually capture the picture before all the blocks come tumbling down! Also check out the awesome drum courtesy of Auntie Kel and Uncle Jason - Scott rocks out!
Scott is a baby no more! He is definitely a little kid now! He walks more than he crawls (today at the park he practically ran to try to get to the guy on the riding lawn mower - coolest thing ever right?!) he talks non stop, I have even heard some "words". He has started to be able to recognize and find things (ask him where mickey or elmo is and he will point) and he points to things if he wants to know what they are (I'm guessing that's why sometimes) or if he wants them (usually this is the case for pointing). And the kid definitely knows what he wants and is very vocal about it. We are working on manners and obedience. Scott understand "no" (used repeatedly when he stands up in the bath tub, reaches for the outlets or hits - yeah, hitting, that's new and fun - not!) and his problem is that he thinks its a game, or wants it to be a game, so he laughs and does it more, I deserve an award for keeping a straight face when I have to tell him no again because he is so darn cute and funny.
Scott likes finger foods only now - adios baby food purees. And he likes to feed himself making meal time a looooong process - but that's usually nice for me because high chair breaks = awesome for mommies!
Scott is absolutely in love with his daddy (has been his whole life) and lately has taken to crying when Brian leaves in the morning - SADDEST.THING.EVER! He has also started to become a tiny bit more of a cuddler (which isn't saying much because he has never been much of a cuddler) now he will sit and snuggle with me for a few minutes after a nap or when I get him out of his carseat, its basically my favorite thing in the world. He has also started to hold on like a monkey when you carry him, which actually makes having 24lbs. on your hip easier!
One of the funniest new things is how much Scott's sense of humor has developed. He has always loved to laugh but now he understands when you purposely do things to make him laugh (I stick rice puffs to my lips and let him pick them off and eat them...gross?) and he totally gets that I'm being funny (by the way I know its my own fault that I'm teaching my kid to play with his food and I won't have a leg to stand on when I try to tell him not to play with his - whatever I'll cross that bridge later). He is basically just so much fun! Can't believe he'll be ONE in just two short months (less than that now!).
