Jelly Bean (JB for short, on the Internet) is ONE year old. Wow! another year of wild emotions, tears of defeat and laughter, joy, complete exhaustion, and overwhelming love.
He surprises me all of the time. He laughs and smiles all day, excepting the times he is being naughty or has an “oopsy daisy.” He wants his mother first and foremost, but is finally learning to be content in the lap of another. He wants to be bigger and faster like his sister. He adores her. Anything she does astounds and fascinates him, and he wants to be involved in all of her play (even against her wishes).
Pictures describe him better than words ever could.
This is his being silly face:
And here is his “what’s that?” face:
This is his eating face:
And his “sister, push me faster!” face:
This is his after-nap-crying face:
And his chose-not-to-nap face:
This is his favorite place where he makes his most curious face of all:
He is fun and squishy, soft and lovable, hug-and-kiss-able, and all things wonderful. And I love him all of the time.
