One of the best parts about being a parent is getting to watch this little person you’ve created, as they turn into the perfect weirdos they are. I want to make sure I keep a record of all the silly things Charlie does, now at 15 months.
He puts his shoulder up against his cheek and extends his arm out, palm up, while wrinkling his forehead and looking at something with his little doe-like eyes. This means he wants something. Also for want, the sign for “milk” applies to everything.
He isn’t walking yet but is tired of crawling on hands and knees, so getting around the house/yard sometimes involves “walking” around on his knees/legs, or crawling around like Mowgli, butt in air
It’s getting warmer out, so he enjoys being totally naked best of all
He freaks out a little when he goes potty in the yard without a diaper on. Then it’s cuddle time for a few minutes
He says “DOH?!?!?” at everything, seemingly wanting to strike up a conversation about it
He has started making a gutteral “guhg” sound lately. I think he likes the feeling it makes in his throat
Says pa-pa, da da, ma ma (rarely), and I swear he clearly said “daddy” and garbled “i love you” when I kissed him goodnight the other day
Gives kisses when you ask him for one
Is SO cuddly since recovering from icky Hand, Foot, and Mouth. He’ll just come up and lay his head down on mine or Matt’s shoulders. He actually stays put for a good 30 seconds, which is new
Puts the phone and TV remote on his shoulder, leans his head over and says “ah?”
Knows where his belly button is. We are working on nose, ear and eye too
When he throws a tantrum about something (he can’t put his finger in the cat’s bottom, he can’t put the rocks in his mouth, etc.) he kicks and cries for a minute before calmly laying down on the floor and curling up into a ball with his hands underneath him.
It’s so fun watching his little personality unfold, my sweetest, funny kid!
