I’m finally getting to posting this! Because these past two months have been pretty fast paced, I figured I’d just join them into a big post. As of yesterday, Juju’s already 11 months & 2 weeks, but these little facts are only sharing news up until he turned 11 months.
So…pretty much since my last update, I’m a big boy now. I can now hold my own bottle (quite easily now), suck from a straw, climb on anything that is reachable, and am going to be a big brother. I’m not really sure what being a brother is yet, but Mama says I’ll find out in a few months.
I went on my second airplane ride to Mexico last month. The plane wasn’t the funnest experience for me or my parents. At least they had lots of snacks for me 🙂 Mexico was great though. I’ve got a ton of amigos to visit if we ever head back there. Everywhere we went, I’d make a new friend. That was great. The heat, at times, got a bit much for me but Mama & Papa would take me into the ocean and that was heavenly. I learnt that there is so much sand to eat, but Mama freaked out when I put it in my mouth(?!). All to say, I can’t wait for our next beach get-away (Mama typed that last sentence, but I agree with her!).
Chatting is my thing these days. Let me re-phrase that – chatting CONSTANTLY is my thing these days. Give me something that will fit in this hand of mine, I find a way to talk into it [like a phone]. Like in Mexico, at home, I make quite a few friends by just talking randomly to people as they walk by. If we’re at a restaurant, at church, or in our front yard, there’s people to talk to everywhere! I think my Mama enjoys meeting the new folk, but Papa isn’t always impressed.
Speaking of my front yard…we officially have our own now! Not only that, but a backyard too. We did this crazy thing called “moving”. Mama & Papa put all of our stuff in boxes only to take it all out again…it all seemed counter-productive and I tried to tell them, but they didn’t hear me I guess. But because of this “move” we did, I can say that my new bedroom is great and I love all the stairs that I can climb up and down on. We put my wagon in our backyard, and I love riding it – chariot style. Daddy always pulls me extra fast…so fast that I scream. Kind of what Mama does when I put dirt and rocks in my mouth(!!).
I’m still loving playing guitars and singing with Mama & Papa. Hopefully, they’ll let me have a mic at church soon. AND…I’ve officially taken my “first steps”, as Mama says. They get SO excited when I walk between them…who’s to blame them? I do too!
So many changes and new things … and that’s only to continue! Next month, I’ll no longer be know by how many months I am, but how many years I am 🙂
