Beckham's antics

Bex was up on the bottom step this morning. He was so proud of his newfound climbing abilities, he stopped to kick his little chubby legs in delight and propelled himself down on his head. After a moment of reprieve, he was at it again. With Mom and his earthly guardian angel (Seneca) following behind, he got to number four before taking a break and tipping over. Seriously, is he old enough for this? I kind of liked the days when I could leave him in a particular spot and be fairly certain he would still be there when I returned. Those days are long gone, my friends. He is doing his darnest to keep up with his fellow mischief makers. He has turned into a super fast crawler and loves to be where the action is. He's pulling up on everything and keeping up in conversation.. it may not be conversation I fully understand, but these three seem to know exactly what is going on.

I love that my children are close in age and relationship. I love that they have strong healthy bodies that enable them to constantly explore and enjoy each other. I'm grateful that they are so darn busy every day that they melt into their beds each night in a hurry to renew the energy for a new day. I'm grateful for Coop who is currently dancing around on the trampoline singing about alligators who speak spanish and have spanish spirits. I'm grateful for Senny who has been carrying around a box of granola bars for two days trying her hardest to fit anything and everything into her box. I'm grateful for Beckham who loves to laugh at his reflection in the piano. This house is a fun place.

Well, at least you know you'll get your workout in everyday for the next while chasing him up and down the stairs!

When did he get so chubby?! I love the baby chub! Londyn is starting to crawl too, not really fast at it yet but she's getting there. I can' believe how quickly they change into little people....

Oh, yes...I remember the days. Only cherished memories now, but I am having so much fun watching Ely waddle back and forth everywhere. It gives me a good chuckle. Enjoy the simple chaos for now!

Hey, cut picture. I loved having my children all in the same interest groups at the same time, it sure made life easier until I had 2 get married 2 weeks apart.

Ambers, I tuned in to your blog and there was little 'Bex'. I thought I was seeing BJ for a minute there, years and years ago....
