14 Months! The two-handed noodle monster.

Desmond Facts:
Big D says the following:
  • Yeah!
  • Nooooo.
  • Kitty! 
  • Meow
  • Wooooo
  • Daddy
  • Nisha! (Short for Tanisha, D's caregiver)
  • WhoIsThat?
  • YumYumYumYumYum
  • Peep-a-pooh 
You will take note that 'Mama' is not on the list. Sigh.

Big D is sleeping through the night, steadily gaining more beautiful blonde curls, running, climbing and almost blowing kisses. There is constant yammering, singing and even dancing.  Joy, all day long. I cannot get enough of his toothy smile and though the child can't yet find his own nose, he can find everyone's belly button, and pokes me in the armpit to tickle me.

Also, one day we will move out of our house, and only after all the furniture and rugs and stuff is removed will we find all the cheerios hidden by tiny toddler hands.

Beach Baby

Baby D took his first vacation spending some time in the Outer Banks of North Carolina this week. It is hard work being the baby, and everyone needs a break now and then.

I just hope to get all that sand out of the baby business before he starts kindergarten.
