My little Malachi is no longer so little. My baby is 15 months old (Jan 12)….exactly how did that happen? So much about my little boy has changed, and I couldn’t be prouder of each and every tiny accomplishment he’s made. I have officially become one of those people I said I would never be….the kind of person who screams and giggles with excitement when my child learns to blow kisses, wave bye-bye, moves his stool to the bathtub, and eats all his food. Such small things, but oh how they blow me away.
In the weeks since I lasted posted, my little man has given me so many beautiful memories to hide away in my heart.
He is still my independent boy. He is super analytical and wants to figure out how everything works. When he can’t, he becomes super frustrated. It’s like his mind his much more developed than his physical ability. He is stubborn and strong-willed…I’m already asking the Lord to grant me extra doses of humility. My boy is so wonderfully made, but boy am I scared as we approach his twos and threes. I believe we are going to be on our knees a lot. :)
Malachi is our outdoorsman. He LOVES walks, riding in his wagon or on his trike, playing in the yard, playing at the playground, and feeding the ducks. On a sunny day, he wants to be ousid (outside). Smart boy…though now I am on the hunt for a backpack of some kind to carry him in for hikes and things. Any suggestions out there?
Malachi is also such a comedian. He loves to tease us, play games with us and laugh. His new favorite games are: In and Out (he takes all the toys out of his baskets and puts them all back in), Where’s ___? (He likes to hunt for us), Wipe (wipes our noses, this comes from me trying to make a game about wiping his nose since he has had a 3 week cold), Choo Choo (rides the train up and down our legs), Go Go Go (tag), and Where’s Your____? (he can find his eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, teeth and belly).
He says and understands the following words: no, yes, bath, ball, ousid (outside), eat, more, mik (mil), juz (juice, which is really water), buk (book), go, Dada, Mama, pu-e (puppy), shoe, noz (nose), mow (mouth), bewi (belly), choo (train), peas, nanas (bananas), spo (spoon)
