Happy 14 Months, Knox!

This little guy is growing up way too fast!  14 months already?!?  I skipped the 13 month sticker pictures because at this point it's sort of an ordeal to get any decent shots of him being still and looking at me.  There's too much to get in to to stop and pose for the camera!  But, I decided to try to get the 14 month ones, so these are the best I got! 

I also forgot to post his 13 month milestones, so I'll include those here too.  :)
He loves trying to get into his drawers and pull stuff out before I catch him.  He's very mischevious...


The monthly blue bear picture

This is what most of the pictures looked like: him sliding out of the chair before I could back up enough to take the picture.  I'm telling you - these picture sessions are a work out!


The one picture I got of him smiling!

14 month old feet! 

Love this picture.  :)


Walking around with his WubbaNub.  He never used it as a pacifier like it's intended... he'd sometimes chew on the feet, but mostly he just likes playing with it.  :)
Climbing!  I'm gonna have to keep my eye on this one!

Reading...




















  • On November 17, 2012 he said his first real word!  He tried to repeat the word "brush".  It sounds like "ush", and it's really cute to hear his little voice.  One of his favorite things to do is to get into the drawer that has my brushes in it.  Every time he comes into our bedroom, he makes a bee-line for the bathroom and heads straight for that drawer!
  • On November 18, 2012, he started trying to brush his own hair when he'd get my brushes out.  :)
  • On November 25, 2012, he combined the two on his own.  He went to the brush drawer, got out a brush, said "rush", and brushed his own hair.  Smart boy!  His first molar also started poking through - it's the one on the top left.
  • On November 29, 2012 he sead his second word: "uck"!  (That's truck in Knox speak.)   :) He also learned how to open doors.  Yikes!
  • On December 2, 2012, he started saying "duck", which sounds like "truck" because it's "uck" again... but he knows the difference.  You can ask him to get the duck, and he'll grab it and say "uck".  :)
  • On December 3, 2012, he heard the garbage truck outside, looked outside at it, then back at me, and said "uck!".  I was shocked.  I didn't know he'd ever even seen a garbage truck, much less knew that was the noise it made.  I immediately realized that he's been picking up a whole lot more than I'd been giving him credit for.  That same day he also started enforcing some of his independence - he would only eat if he could put the food on the spoon himself!  (He may look like Logan, but every day I'm more convinced he's got my personality!)
  • On December 5, 2012, he started pointing for the first time.  (It was at the Christmas tree... probably at an ornament I wouldn't let him take off!) 
  • On December 13, 2012 he started walking around "talking" on his "phone" (which could be anything he deems a phone - the baby monitor, a remote control, my iPhone...)  He puts it behind his neck and just jabbers away, pacing the room "talking".  Its adorable. 
  • On December 17, 2012 his second molar started coming in.  This one is the top right one. 
  • On December 26, 2012 he learned how to walk backwards while pulling his toys.  That takes some coordination! 
  • On January 1, 2013 he started doing this funny thing when I'm rocking him to sleep.  He knows he's supposed to be falling asleep, so he'll squeeze his eyes shut real tight, then peek at me to see if I'm looking.  When he sees I'm watching him, he immediatly squeezes them shut super tight again.  It's really funny. 
  • On January 8, 2013 he learned that spinning in a circle makes him dizzy - and he loves it.  :)  He'll spin around and around, then fall over, and can't get up because he's too dizzy.  He just laughs and laughs at this!  He also learned how to blow kisses, which is adorable. 
Lots of new milestones over the last couple of months!  His personality is really coming out, and it's so fun to see, and I love watching those "light bulb" moments when he really gets something for the first time.  I've said this before, but every day I can't imagine loving him any more than I already do, but every day, I do.
