see that shirt? it describes henry to a tee. he’s cruising with ease and walks (with one or both hands holding mine). lately he’s been brave and he lets go and stands for a few seconds by himself before plopping on the floor.
in the past few weeks i added a variety of “real” food to his meals. now that he has two bottom teeth, i feel more comfortable giving him table food or larger chunks of fruits and vegetables. he likes avocado and crispy toast (a true blogger’s child), strawberry wedges, and roasted sweet potato. he had udon noodles for the first time last week and he loved them!
each month i’ll share a letter to henry along with some keepsakes and memories. i can’t believe he’s almost a year old. we mailed his birthday party invitations and planned our lunch menu. i’m making most of the decorations; we’re doing a theme based on one of our favorite wes anderson movies. you’ll have to remind me to share pictures (this means you kelsey and indi).
even if you’re a stinker at night, we love you more and more. you’re still obsessed with mama at bedtime. this month all of papa’s remotes intrigue you. you press the buttons, throw them, and fuss when we hide them in a drawer. everything is also a car. you push books, stuffed animals, and the dining room chairs across the floor. everything must move (which is why mama bought the lightning tee for you).
we go to the library on wednesdays and see other babies. the librarian mrs. sheila blows bubbles and you clap your hands, point, and laugh and laugh. as your bathtime treat mama blows a few bubbles before i rinse you. i will miss bringing you to the library when the school year begins. i’ve treasured our first summer home together. papa always reassures me, “it’s the first of many summers!”
you figured out sophie sits under your high chair waiting for food. sometimes you tease her by holding food out and then eating it, and other times you drop it on purpose (annoying mama). you are very silly. you use the sign for “more” when you want more food. you also spit out anything you don’t like. yucky, henry!
mama bought some shorts for you from finn and jules and papa thinks they are so cool! you are our LOVE.
great big bear hugs, mama + papa
