Not only was today Mother's day, but today was also the MR's thirteenth month on the outside. Strange to start counting months again, there was so much anticipation leading up to his one year birthday. This last month has been one full of transition for our poor little kiddo. I feel so bad for him because he is so obviously on the cusp of so many physical advances, but being in a new environment (and one not laid out with him in mind) is stifling. He's so curious, and fearless, he wants to explore every corner and open every door. He always wants to be standing, often because he has spied something he wants to get his little hands on. He is also always on the move, which is how we got the picture above. Diaper changes have become increasingly difficult since MR has not a single second to spare for idleness. What we see here is the result of yet another failed diaper change, someday I will make sure to share this with his significant other. Than I shall have my revenge, oh yes. But really, our kiddo continues to be such a joy for us and others. Now that we are closer to family, some more than others, it's very obvious that this little boy brings light into more lives than just our own. He's also growing two more teeth, which will bring the count to ten! So much going on in such a little life, thankfully we have such a resilient kiddo. Happy thirteen months booger bum, mama loves you.

what a funny picture! Diapering is such a hassle now. Someone recommended putting a sticker on his hand, but that didn't work. Little Elvis does like to hold Mommy's cell phone during changes now. I've found it makes both of our lives easier.
By the way, I've decided to have a contest, please come enter!
