tonight, noah sang while matt rocked him. a couple of days ago, he stood on top of his new chair and walked right off of it like he was superman. then he laughed. this morning, he snagged one of my markers and hid behind one of the columns to play with it. i caught him before any damage was done. recently when we get to the elevator in our loft, he points to the buttons with his index finger. speaking of his index finger, have i written about it before?
he uses that little finger for EVERYTHING. he scratches his head with it, he sucks on it, he sticks it in my mouth, he shoves his food around with it, we touch fingers like ET, he points at the ceiling with it, he points to teag with it, he hesitantly tries out new toys with it...oh my goodness, that little finger must be exhausted by the end of the day!
anyway, to continue...yesterday, he found the mouthwash bottle under our sink and he walked around with it for the longest time. last week, i was sewing and he grabbed two handfuls of batting and took off down the hallway, laughing. he drops food down to teagan from his high chair. he got his first spanking two days ago. it broke my heart. he nuzzles into my shoulder before i put him to bed. yesterday, when i got him out of his crib after a nap, he grabbed both sides of my face and smiled. he babbles ALL the time. he's so confident, like he knows exactly what he's saying. he's walking, and almost running. he says, "OK".
he makes me laugh everyday. he'll be 13 months in a couple of days. i think i'm just going to tell people he's one rather than go into the months. anyone have an opinion about that? when do you start saying years rather than months? is there a cutoff?
