This kid is 14 months old this week. Are ya kidding me? Sometimes I get sad and miss when Walker was really little, but then I get excited he's so fun. And then I get even more excited one day he won't just point at things or say duh duh duh a lot! He's really into airplanes now, so much that when we are inside and we hears it he starts to point to the sky. He's quite insane climbing onto everything and throwing everything as if it is a ball. He loves to talk and sometimes he even hugs us! He's very determined and gets angry when he doesn't get things his way... doesn't sound like me at all... GG and NeNe taught him things like blowing kisses, high fives, Go Rangers with his hand in the air and fake coughing. GG is in trouble for that one. He is still scared of most men and some women at times. We really want to keep him around other kids so he doesn't get so attached to us. It's only bad when he's tired. He is cool with guys after a few days, but if you pick him up, that's when he screams at you. I have no clue why because Nick is the main man in his life and he's really cool with him. I heard once you spend the first year of a child's life keeping them alive, then the next year or so making sure they don't kill themselves. Yes. Following Walkie up and down the stairs... going to the playground is a must but exhausting as I follow him around making sure he doesn't jump off of something... making sure he doesn't jump in the pool after a toy... letting him play in the cupboards just hoping he doesn't get too far back and smash glass on the ground... remembering to lock up the nail polish remover... These kids are little monsters into everything! He also loves to pull on my ears when he is tired and sometimes pulls my hair. Hate to yell at him when he is tired, but, my hair does not enjoy being ripped from my head. He also tries to bite at times... he thinks it is funny. I don't think he enjoyed being bitten back one day. I try not to take a day for granted. Sometimes it is hard when you have a million things to do, but other days it is fun to just hang out and remember you don't get these days back!
We've been traveling A LOT lately. We got to go to Dallas to a Rangers game and see lots of friends one weekend... then Nick went on a sports excursion with his boys so W and I drove to Midland to see Dad and Brenda. We got to see Stephanie in Big Spring for a bit so that was neat! Then Chandra brought her girls over on Monday! Papa Mark and NeNe spoiled Walkie with toys and lots of good food. I had such a nice time relaxing with them and sharing Walker with his cool grandparents. Then we went to Phoenix meeting our best friends the Sznajders for a Texas Tech game. It was a hote weekend, but good times with good friends! We are tired of travel, but hitting Texas for a wedding, visit to West Texas and then again for the holidays this year! Again, you don't get these days back so it's okay!
Hanging out in Texas, September...
