How can it be?!

My baby will be ONE on Wednesday!!! Tell me, HOW can that be possible? He's grown SO much. He's starting to talk and signs to me quite a bit. Well, when he's hungry. I'm not exactly fluent in sign language. He knows more and hungry. It's so cute though, we were at a play last night and a little boy was eating pretzels....Brennen was signing furiously....Eat, more, eat! I felt terrible, having brought no snacks for him.... He now says, Mom, Dad, Bub (Jon), UH OH!, Ampa (grandpa) Amma (grandma), HI (followed by the fluttering of the eyelashes!), No, stop, and eat. He's got a great sense of humor too and likes to joke around. He's becoming quite the climber (I found him ON my kitchen table a couple of days ago....he had wormed out of his high chair seat belt and climbed from the high chair to the table and was kneeling up to a nearby shelf and eating the acorns Tanner had put around my candle!) He's also standing a lot. No steps yet....I don't expect it to be much longer though! He's working on some molars....FUN! So he's been a bit cranky but all in all, he's still such a gem of a boy! One just doesn't sound like a baby anymore! I have a ONE year old! WAH!

What, no pic?

Seems like he was JUST born! I forgot that he shares a birthday with Isaac.
