You give the best kisses. Open mouth, of course. Somedays I think you’ve missed your dad because you attack him with a 30-second kiss right when he walks in the door.
You’re showing a lot more interest in books! Your sister was/is such a bookworm, so I was surprised that you preferred to throw them rather than read them. But now you’ll sit through one (maybe two) stories at night…and I catch you flipping through pages and babbling when you’re playing on your own.
You can clap! You took your time but I think you just like to master skills before you prove to us that you can do them.
I used to joke that I “couldn’t take my eye off you”…but now I’m serious…I really can’t. You never cease to amaze me with the things you can climb or the trouble you can cause in the time it takes me to go to the bathroom. And Lord knows I can’t take you with me or you try to push me off so you can get your hands in the toilet bowl. Crazy, crazy boy.
Sometimes I’ll be sitting on the ground and you just come over and lean in for a hug…or turn around and back right up into my lap. You’re a mommas boy and I’m not complaining 😉
You love peek-a-boo, the wheels on the bus, this little piggy, and of course, the “sittin’ in my high chair” song. It was a favorite of your sister’s too!
You could hear the sound of our porch doors sliding open from a mile away–and be there in 10 seconds flat to try to make your escape. You looove being outside.
You’re starting to have an opinion, and it comes in the forms of a high-pitched, ear piercing scream. It means “don’t take that toy from me“, “but I wanted to do something dangerous“, and most often “give me your food!!!!”
Oh Nash, you are one crazy boy…but I couldn’t love you more 🙂
Ashley Brickner says
He really is so, so precious, Vanessa! And walking – I can't believe it!
Desiree Macke says
Oh Nash! How are you already almost a year old?!
Almost running, big, opened-mouth, sloppy kisses, and those leg rolls. Too much cute and sweetness all around!

Jenuine Happiness says
Oh my goodness! I can't believe he is already walking! What a big dude. I know the feeling about being into everything. I'm not sure if it's a boy thing or what but our little guy is literally everywhere before I have a chance to even turn around. Such sweetness 🙂
his leg rolls are my most favorite!! and him and Arden in the sunflowers.. SO SWEET!!!!
Jessica Kessler says
Weight – heavy! Ha ha! I laughed out loud at that. He is so adorable and his personality really shines in those pictures.
Laura Marie Keenan says
Oh my goodness, he is just scrumptious! I had an early walker too and really loved it! So much adventure awaits Nash now!
Elizabeth Birenbaum says
Oh my gosh, the sweetness! That picture of him getting into the fridge is hilarious. He knows what he wants and he knows how to get it! Too cute.
So handsome and ALL BOY!
