All Smiles

September 26, 2011

Holden is such a doll, with the brightest smile.  You’d never know that he’s a super destroyer by this pic. LOL  Yep, he can break almost anything by biting it, can break wood blinds in half, and chew the finish off of a 3 in 1 crib . . . . . yes, the one that starts out as a crib, then converts to a toddler bed, then turns into a full headboard.  I told him that when he’s a teenager and he asks why his bed looks like that, I’ll definitely tell him it was all his doing.  So not excited about that one. :( Well, I’m not excited about any of them, but I do think it’s cute when he points to the damage and says, “I did this. I ruined it.” LOL  I have to admit that I even laugh at that one.  But seriously, Kasen was pretty destructive, tearing up books, biting on plantation shutters (oh yeah, Holden’s done that too), but Holden definitely has her beat in the destructive category.  He’s already ruined all but one of his forks by chewing the tines off (it’s that neat children’s plastic tableware from Ikea), and that cute new placement that I ordered special with his name on it, yep, bite marks all over that as well.  He’s started biting the kitchen table too when he’s done eating, so we have to excuse him immediately after he eats.  Seriously, what’s up with the biting?!  I think he just got that huge mouthful of teeth too darn early and he doesn’t quite know how to handle them still.  We’re praying he learns fast.  I’ll tell you what they are good for, those awesome smiles.  So for now we’ll just focus on that, and hope he outgrows the other stuff . . . SOON!!! ;)

Here’s the smiley boy. :)


See ya’ later!!

Gayle Brockman: He is growing up so quickly!! What a sweet boy...I wish I could give him a big hug and squeeze in person. Sorry about all that chewing and hopefully he will grow out of it soon!!! Love to all xoxo

Mae Mae: That smile would melt the hardest heart. He really is the sweetest little man (other than the chewing...)
