Boo Boo Adventures

Boo Boo is finally walking!! He'll be 14 months next week and is transitioning between the preference to crawl and the preference to walk. He's my first baby to not walk at their 1st birthday party. He is also my first laid back baby, EVER! My first three are go-getters, did everything early and are strong-willed. Boo Boo didn't do everything late, but he was never at the top of his age group with physical abilities like my others were. It's been nice, though, in some ways.
Here he is with his ballerina sisters. They love to walk him around the house. He laughs the whole time!

Here he is drawing on the magna-doodle. The boy is insistent he holds the pen correctly! If the string gets in the way or he starts out with a fist he'll get annoyed, throw it down and pick it up again "properly." Halarious!

Go Cardinals! Mr. Prince was NOT happy about this outfit I snuck on him Memorial Day!

Here is a video from a few months ago with him doing sign language. He really does communicate well with us for his age. He signs a few more words than this now.

This is me testing out my wrap with Boo Boo on my back. He's getting too heavy to put on my belly and sometimes hip slinging him can be tiring, too. Believe it or not, I put him on there with only my 6-year-olds help. And got him out, too! Can you tell who took the picture?

Boo Boo has already been claimed as our baseball player. (Sid the Science Kid is our soccer player.) Boo Boo loves balls and would tossed a ball with you since he could sit up. He also loves spatulas, bats and maracas and hits balls around the house with them. (He is right this moment throwing and chasing a ball over and over in the kitchen!)

The girls in their ballet dresses remind me of you when you use to dance. :)

I just found your blog from a comment you left on Almost Frugal. I noticed immediately how much we have in common when I read your profile info on your sidebar. I'm a homebirthing, cloth diapering, breastfeeding, non-vaccinating, non-circumcising, baby wearing mama too. But I'm also an atheist, pro-choice, and a hard core liberal. With as polarized as politics have become lately, it's easy to fall into the mindset of "us and them", with little common ground. Your blog serves as a great reminder that there is plenty of common ground, and that we can share lots of beliefs while differing on others. Great reminder, and great blog! Best wishes for the rest of your pregnancy!
