what i live for

 my bed this very moment holds these two

this is what i live for
moments of tender love and adornment

my entire life i have wanted what i now have
an amazing husband and "mommy" on my resume

............

i haven't written for a while about my little steeley wheeley 
he is now 14 months old and is full of life 

he is one of the most even-tempered, mellow kids i've ever known
he is extremely loving. everything he does is without a care

what steele lives for....
his blue blanky
his thumb (working on that)
bagels and cream cheese
string cheese
bananas
anything in a sippy
bath time
anything outside
rocks and dirt
tea (he loves to cuddle with her)
medicine
mickey mouse clubhouse
getting into tea's dog food and feeding her
cuddling with anyone who is willing

as for a list of things steele dislikes....
watermelon
pineapple
getting his nose picked

what steele can sign....
food
please
thank you
potty
more
bath
milk
book
all done


what steele can say....
 (not a whole lot, mostly animal noises)
uh oh
lion
cow
fish (he puckers his lips)
monkey
hot (only once but said with perfect clarity)
hat (twice)

what body parts steele knows...
nose
eyes
ears
chin
teeth
tongue
belly button
toes
feet
bum
hair
head

i've come to the conclusion that
there are maybe a hand full of people
who will even read and care about this post.
yet still i write. i want to have all of
his accomplishments written down.

this is definitely a post only
mom's will understand.

Don't worry, I read it and I care about it! It's actually fun because Devri is 4 months behind Steele so now I get to see what she might be doing or what I should try to work on with her. Steele's a cutie, as always!

I love these posts. I still do them and I totally understand why us mom's do them. We want to remember what our child has learned at what age. We miss playing with you guys and can't wait to play when we get back.

It's super cute to read about all that Steele can do. He is growing up so fast. We are excited with all that we have to look forward to with Koda!

Love this post Emily, and I TOTALLY understand :) Steely Wheely is so cute and such a handsome little guy. I can't believe he can sign that much!! I really wish I would have done that with Cohen, because it can sometimes get frustrating not knowing what they want.
I thought I'd tell you, we are coming to Orem this weekend! And I'd love to go to lunch with you, and Chloe, and whoever else. ... that's if you don't have plans already. Anyway, let me know if you want to! Here's my # 801.602.0904

Hey Emily! I don't know if you remember me. I talked to you over a year ago about invetro. Well guess what? We are headed down to LA the beginning of next month to do the procedure with Dr. Marrs. I tried calling you the other day, but I think you have a different number now. Anyway, I would love to get some advise as to what things we should be doing from your stand point. If you could email me your number, that would be great. frampj1@yahoo.com

Thanks!
