It’s been a little while since I updated you all on Baby E.  He just keeps getting bigger and bigger.  He took a few steps right around Thanksgiving, but nothing really since then.  Then, this past weekend when his grandparents were visiting he took several steps.  Again, nothing since.  Maybe he just prefers crawling?  That’s okay, I’m not in a huge hurry for him to be so mobile and be able to quickly find trouble.

He’s been super hungry so I think that means he’s going through a growth spurt again.  He’s also been waking up again in the middle of the night.  Not so fun for me, but I think he’s hungry.

He LOVES our Christmas decorations.  He wants to be picked up and brought to each decoration.  Of course, he kisses Mama underneath the mistletoe 🙂  He calls the Christmas tree “Chris-Chris,” but he whispers it.  So cute!

We put up a small 4 foot tree on top of a table instead of our nice 7 1/2 foot one.  We just wanted to avoid the constant “no” and frustration that a large tree and a toddler would bring.  So far, so good.

Ah, the early days of toddlerhood.  It really can be so fun and yet can be so annoying.  He’s got a stubborn streak and loves to find trouble.  One of my least favorite things is this new screech he’s trying out.  It’s LOUD and it hurts your ears.  It’s so hard to not respond to it, which of course is why he does it.
