Focusing on the littlest one here for a minute, look at how big he is already!
He is such a happy and quiet little soul. I love him so much I could just eat him up. Although time is passing quickly, it doesn't make me sad. I know that each stage gets a little bit easier, lots of learning and discovering is happening, and I'm getting a little more sleep!
He's doing all kinds of crazy cute things, like slugging along everywhere. We've also seen lots of pulling up to his knees (sometimes even to his feet!), rocking on his hands and knees, and popping new teeth left and right (he has 4 to count!)
This little man is named after my grandfather. And although Otto never got to meet him, I catch little glimpses of my Grandpa Joe in him all the time. Grandpa was a quiet man, he didn't say much. But he was always there, dependable and a hard worker. He had blue eyes and dimples to die for. And sometimes I wonder how things like that work out. How we passed on this name for two other kids, like all along it was being saved just for him. But mostly, it makes me grateful to see reminders of loved ones through the eyes of our little ones.
Kids are waking up from naptime, so that's all I can say for today Hope to be back soon(er) than later!
