Dear Beckham

Dear Beckham,
You are getting so big, so fast. You are determined to be a big boy, but I wish you would just stay little for a little while longer. Your favorite things to play with are anything that you shouldn't be playing with, of course. You love my iphone, the remote control, unrolling the toilet paper all the way into the kitchen, getting out all of the tupperware (the only cabinet Daddy didn't baby proof), pulling the sound machine off of the shelf, climbing on the couch, coffee table, chairs etc. Your favorite thing in the world is to be outside. Anything outside is good with you, so we play outside a lot. You have started to really hate baby food. All of it. You would much rather eat people food. In fact, you are hungry anytime you see someone eating, it doesn't matter if you've just eaten. You also sometimes wake up from a nap if you smell someone cooking in the kitchen. You are the nosiest little boy I think ever existed. You just have to figure stuff out & examine things. If something confuses you, like water running out of the faucet (and you can't grab it) you have to check it out at all angles. I can see your little mind learning and I often wish I knew what you were thinking. You still love taking baths. You sometimes get upset when it's time to get out, I guess you're not done playing or something. Sometimes, if I'm lucky you want to cuddle after your bath. I loooooove those times. You are the best snuggler in the world (other than your Daddy). The other night actually, you were in the best mood ever and you wanted to snuggle so we did. We rocked and sang songs and while I was singing you were giving me the best kisses. It was so sweet and I savored every moment. You've somewhat outgrown your hatred for the diaper. Every now and then you still fight to get a new one put on but normally all you're worried about is playing with yourself. Speaking of that- as soon as your butt hits the water in the tub, your hands are down there. It's both funny and awkward at the same time. It's funny because you're so into playing with it you're not even worried about me. And it's awkward because it's one of those things I really don't need to see. I know you're just a baby and don't really know what you're doing, but still....and I know you'll never grow out of that. Your favorite show is still Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! But, you're starting to like other shows too, like Jake and The Neverland Pirates, The Octonauts, and Handy Manny. But, really you're not crazy about the TV- you'd much rather be playing with toys or outside. You are still taking two naps a day and probably will until you start Kindergarten (kidding!). But seriously, you're so active during the day you love your naps. Sometimes, too much is going on and you don't want to lay down, but typically you love nap time, and always have. You usually go to bed around 9:30, but when Daddy is home you stay up later and you wake up anywhere from 7:00a to 10:00a. You are the happiest baby ever. Seriously, it scares me you are so good. I'm sure if you have a little brother or sister they will be the opposite. I thank God every day for choosing me to be your Mommy. You light up my world, little boy. I don't know what I would do without you. I love you tootie!
