1. He waves. I've been trying for weeks to get him to do the cute little fold the fingers down wave. As if I hadn't learned by now, he does his own thing. He simply throws his hand up. Priceless nevertheless. And if you're really lucky you get two hands. I haven't caught it on camera yet, but he has done it for our family on Skype.

2. He mimics. The three of us were eating lunch the other day when Tom coughed. Brendan deliberately coughed. And then smiled. Love it.

3.  He notices. Everything. He cranes his neck to see everything. I fear he will have a penchant for fast cars because he loves to stare at them when he hears them take off down the street. His latest thing? When we read books I tap the pages with my fingernail to point out different things. He now takes my finger in his tiny hand and taps the pages to hear the sound.

4. He stands. He pulls up on everything. The coffee table, the chair, etc. And then he doesn't know how to sit back down without falling. So he yells until I come help him. And I do. Most of the time with a smile on my face.

Please excuse the shower curtain in the background. We now have curtains, as of yesterday.

5. He lights up my life. Just by being in it.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :) Your little boy is so handsome! I love "meeting" new people - and fun that you follow a lot of the same blogs I do. Lots of similar likes. :)

  2. Too cute Erin....and look, already reading big novels! Lauren and I just started Narnia together last week, reading one chapter together each night.
    Love you.

  3. That is so adorable. I remember all those special.
