You are the cream filling...

Well needless to say I've been a terrible blogger...here's to new year's resolutions...hopefully this one lasts longer than all those people who swarm the gym for two weeks then get frustrated they don't look insta fab and settle in to wait for next year's January 1st.

So many important life events have happened and really I don't know where to start but here are Brox's 14 month pictures that can finally be posted because they were long intended as surprise christmas gifts....Love them!! Thank you so much to my talented older sister Marianne!

Brox is nearly 17 months old and I really can't believe it. He is such a little hoot, he is definitely his own man. Right now he is continuing on with his waffle (whapple) kick and of course the ever trusty "TOOOOAST". He gets special waffles and toast~eggs and whole milk are snuck into the mix and his toast is literally lathered with sweet cream butter~under doctor's orders...he's a bit picky and doesn't like to eat...he is not mirroring his mother on this subject.
He loves all things fruit snackish/leather and has recently had his first Oreo...it took him about 2 oreos to realize that he could just eat the cream filling and give the cookie back to mom. I'm running out of fattening foods to give him... when I'm not trying to make him a butter ball or a diabetic for that matter he loves cream'o wheat for breakfast along with whatever we have in our cereal bowl~currently he LOVES rice chex. He loves apples, grapes, blueberries, whipped cream (by itself...the 'pshhhh' kind as we call it) and freeze dried bananas and strawberries. That's all that's coming to mind....oh and ice cream. Wow...anyone else notice the lack of beloved veggies?~anyone with any help here, please do share your secrets.
He still loves to play basketball and has taken to really trying to 'dribble' which is hilariously cute. He has loved the Christmas season and all of the "cheese" decorated with lights. I think if our tree wasn't fake that it would've burned down due to light overuse. He loves to ride his rocking horse like a jockey, complete with bringing his knees up high. He loves animals and recently we fed the ducks at a nearby pond...he was brave enough to try to personally feed the starving things...he enjoys swinging, running around with any sort of ball...or making something into a ball. He loves to read books and sing the eensy weensy spider and will try to do the finger motions...love it. He LOVES his aunts and uncles and can be convinced to get over any crocodile tears if we say they're names to him. He likes to find little spots that are perfect for his little rumpus and will slowly back up and sit so proudly...stairs, a little lawn chair he got for christmas, small boxes~you name it, he's doing a slow squat to try it out. It makes us chuckle every time.
Words he says: (he is a CHATTER BOX and will if necessary give you the what for complete with bending over slightly and pointing at you...I hope this is not him copying his mom.
Milk (still hates it)
happy (his passie)
teeth (he prefers to brush his own teeth...complete with running his toothbrush repeatedly under the facet)
ball (of course)
hoop (he'll point EVERY single one out that he sees...walking down the street is often very entertaining)
treats...loves most chocolate, peppermint, suckers and sour things.
(He'll call us from another room and vaguely add in the statement, "where are you?"
Baby...LOVES all the babies! Especially his cousins Graham and Damon ( the Damonater) ;)
