What can I say about Holden?! Oh yeah, first of all, he’s walking EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME! It’s precious to see that wobbly walk from one end of the house to the other, but I can guarantee you he won’t be wobbly for long. He’s getting good.
Adventurous, loves to climb on anything. Lover of his stuffed bunny at nap and bedtime. Screeches when he’s frustrated, but consoled quite easily . . . most of the time. Snuggles when he’s hurt or tired. Great belly laugh that can’t help but make you smile. Initiator of silly games. Very social, but will certainly check you out (quite seriously) if he’s not absolutely sure. Warms up quickly. LOVES his bottle, this might be a problem. LOL Goes to sleep with almost no effort on our part. Gives sweet kisses and gentle pats on the back. Loves playing Pat-a-Cake. Water is his best friend . . . the pool, the water table, the bathtub, any faucet with running water – makes him squeal with delight. Favorite toys are things that open and close. Great at pretending, especially with play food and utensils. Excellent car rider. Quietly plays in his crib when he wakes up. Super smiley in the morning. Tires easily . . . probably because he’s on the move so much. Loves his big sister, but will certainly let her know when she takes something that he wants. Loving table food and if he sees us eating anything, he wants to try it too. He can bang toys, sticks and blocks louder than anyone I know. Huge smiles result in being thrown in the air, spun around and swinging. If stairs are anywhere in sight, he motors to them as fast as he can, so he can climb, climb, climb. Will look at you with those big blue eyes while saying “Owww” and proceed to pinch your arm – turkey!! LOL Saying lots of words and having long conversations of jargon that I just love. Will pull out any plug that he can get his hands on and is fascinated by every single electrical outlet in the house, as well as any cables or cords. Will spend 30 minutes crawling up and down out of a child’s chair. Throws toys recklessly over his head, one after the other, so you better watch out! Loves to be carried. Tries extremely hard to sing when anyone else is – sounds hilarious-Brad said he sounds like Frankenstein. LOL Think he might be able to yodel. When he gets hurt, he makes a perfect “O” with his lips and says in a very high pitched and exceptionally sad voice, “Ohhhhhh.” Seriously breaks your heart. Entertains himself really well. Sensitive. Caring. Silly. Sweet. Calm. Fast. Brave. One. Completed our family in a way we never thought possible. Amazing, wonderful Holden – we love you to the moon and back!!
