14 Months

So it seems as if my birthday was just yesterday, yet 2 whole months have already gone by! Jeez! I am Mr. Independent now as I like to play and have conversations with myself and whomever is listening. I still like to play under the kitchen table, though lately it's become my hiding spot when I need to do my "duty" after I eat. I am eating lots of finger foods now and completely switched to whole milk. My favorites are colby jack cheese, bananas, grilled cheese, veggie straws, yogurt and toast. I also drink from the sippy cup at mealtime and only get a bottle before bed.
Here I am eating spaghetti rings and meatballs for dinner. If you see below, I picked all the meatballs out - didn't care too much for them!
Though what I say may sound like a lot of babble, I do understand many words now. If you say "hungry" or "food" I'll go straight for my high chair. I also understand "drink" and can almost say "Sadie". I like to give high-fives and can also blow kisses and wave/say "bye-bye". I give kisses too, but usually with a slobbery open mouth!
I learned how to make lots of noises with my mouth from Grampa when he visited!
I still take a morning nap and an afternoon nap -
anywhere from 1-2 hours each and always with my blanket.
And I always wake up in a good mood!

Last weekend we flew to Denver to see Aunt Joni & Uncle Colin and my cousins Sophia and Amelia. I sure had a good time with them!

Eating breakfast with Amelia...
Play time!
We visited the Denver Aquarium and I got to see lots of fish!!

Mommy and Aunt Joni went to a place called Canvas and Cocktails where they painted pictures and drank some wine. She had a blast!
Here is her picture - mid-completion...
And here is the finished product! WOW!
We also went to a mall where I got to play with lots of kids!
Hangin' out with Sophie and her friends
Playing with more toys!
We flew back on Monday and I was excited to see Sadie again! Mommy and Daddy scheduled the flights around my morning naptime so I slept most of the way there and back.

Cabin Fever

This was taken during the blizzard that came through KC a couple weeks ago...Beckett was still not feeling too well and we were trying our best at keeping him entertained.

PS - After this, Brian got the humidifier out and it was running 24/7 until a couple days ago.

I got your underpants!

Mommy's turn...
As time goes on, I'm finding things that Beckett does that are quite hilarious. I feel that because usually there isn't a camera nearby to capture these funny moments, I have no choice than to share them on his blog. So here goes...

A few nights ago, Beckett followed me into our bedroom. As usual, he was getting into stuff so I turned to see what it was this time. He was taking the lid off the laundry basket and pulling out the first thing he could reach - Daddy's underwear. I proceeded to play with him in a effort that he would let it go. Instead, he took off running down the hallway, waving the underwear in his hand and laughing as if he was saying, "Ha, Ha! You can't catch me!" I ran after him only to find that he was running around the kitchen, still waving the underwear. As I caught up with him and got the underwear away, I realized a few things... 1) I was surprised the underwear was actually IN the hamper to begin with and 2) I was really glad that we didn't have company over at that time. Though, I'm sure far worse embarrassing things will happen as he grows up! Good times~

13 Months

Well, it's been a while since I've written... January wasn't too fun as it's been almost a month of sickness for me, but hopefully now I'm on the mend. I was able to hang out with Mommy and Daddy as they were home for some snow days, but I wasn't able to play in the snow because it's either been too cold or I've been under the weather.
Here I am... not feeling well... and it got a little dry as you can see...
I am continuing to eat well and eating more finger foods. My most recent favorite is bites of ham and colby jack cheese!
 I am also finally getting the hang of the sippy cup and about half way switched to whole milk.
 I still play very well independently and love to read my books. 
I like to run up and down the hallway and sometimes Sadie chases me!
I have figured out how to open the gate at the top of the stairs, so Mommy and Daddy have to make sure it's completely locked so I don't get it open. I like to crawl around under the table like it's a fort.
I especially like it when Mommy and Daddy are sitting at the table...then I like to tickle their feet! It's fun times!! Daddy tries to explain to me that it doesn't work so well when they have shoes on, but I don't quite understand. I also still love the remote and cell phone...and get really mad when they get taken away from me.
I like to look at the pictures on Mommy's phone and can scroll them all by myself! I now have 5 cell phones of my own and play with each one of them!! I like the computer too...pushing the buttons is fun! I've also been talking to both Gramma's and Grampa's on skype.
Bath time!
