Chase your dad and I are holding you back. You want to crawl so bad but every time you lay on your belly we pick you up and sit you back down on your butt. Or I will yell at Bryson and Carter to pick you up. I will admit it....I don't want you to crawl. Once you start crawling its over, you will be a mover and into everything. You won't be out little bitty baby, you will be on your way to a toddler.
Because we are always picking you up you have found other ways to move around the living room. You hop on your butt! Its the cutest thing to see, and it works. We will set you in the middle of the living room then you hop on your butt all the way to the coffee table and then pull yourself up. There really is no stopping you, you are one little determined child to get where you want to go.
This month you also said your first word. Mama. This was a shock to me as Bryson's first word was ball and Joe remembers Carter's first word as being Dada but I will have to double check that.
You love all your fruits, sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes. I think you have eaten your weight in sweet potatoes.
You weigh 20lbs.
You love to talk now, you babble at the boys and they just laugh.
You still love to be held and you get mad when nobody pays attention to you.
You were left for the first time while the rest of the family went to a movie without you. We went to see A Christmas Carol. You stayed with our neighbors Andrea and Chris. They love to watch you.
Chase you are one special little boy and we are so thankful for you.
