"A portrait of Judah once a week, every week, in 2013"



35/52 - Making funny faces with Grandad :) He was making funny faces just like this using his hands, and you grabbed his hand and put it on your face like "do it to me Grandad!"
You and Grandad are the best of buds - you cry when he leaves the room without you (you couldn't care less if I leave the room!). Today we leave to go back to the States and it's going to be rough tearing the two of you apart.

My favorite portrait from last week is adorable Eva on the beach.

34/52 - On the beach in Fish Hoek... this is the first time you've seen an ocean since you were 6 months old, and you were mesmerized by it. The wind, the waves, the sand, the sea gulls, the mussels... everything. You would run down to the water, and then turn and run away in glee when the waves came in.

I have so many pictures already from our time in South Africa... hopefully one day I'll get all caught up on the blog! You are doing so well with all the new people and places and you have become especially attached to your Grandad... it will be hard to tear the two of you apart.

My favorite portrait from last week is this little boy running through a field, clutching his rock... something Judah would do!

33/52 - Sweet boy, so jet-lagged the day after we arrived in South Africa. I'm so proud of my little world traveller - you did so well on the 16 hour flight from Atlanta to Johannesburg, you slept most of it (admittedly with a little help from Benadryl!) and then you played happily when you were awake. We were fortunate to have an empty seat next to us so we could spread out a bit. When we arrived, you jumped straight into having a grand old time with Grandad and Nana and Uncle Daniel and Uncle Matthew... you hardly even batted your eyes at the fact that it was another new place (not to mention new continent and time zone!).

32/52 - Chilling out for a moment at Uncle Timo and Aunt Darcy's rehearsal dinner, looking pretty cute in your safari outfit :) You did so well with all the new people and new places this week.

My favorite portraits from last week are these two little ones on the beach - I'm a sucker for beach shots!

31/52 - Playing with the "choo choo" trains that your Papa played with when he was little :)
You are loving the perfect weather here in Oregon - you could be outside all day long!

My favorite portrait from last week is sweet little Ivy looking out the window - Judah loved windows at that age too.

a few things I don't want to forget {17 months old}

- How you now say "tru-CAH" for "truck" because I was trying to get you to enunciate the "ck" at the end of "truck".... haha.

- How you walk around on your tippy toes, or walk backwards, just to entertain yourself. You also love to spin in circles until you are too dizzy and fall down and laugh!

- How you go pee-pee on the potty, on demand! I hold you on the potty before bath time etc and say "let's go pee-pee on the potty!" and you do it every time. And you do #2 on the potty if we are close to one at the time, too. I'm not stressing about potty training since we are travelling so much at the moment, but you will sure be ready when we get home.

- How you make funny faces all the time... your squinty-eyed, scrunchy-nosed grin... your sticky-out lips face... your frowny, pouty grumpy face... your serious, studious face.... and any number of combinations. Your little face is very expressive of how you are feeling.

- How you love anything and everything that has wheels... including wheelchairs and other babies' strollers... It seems like I'm always chasing after you to stop you from pushing some poor unsuspecting baby's stroller or a person in a wheelchair!

- How you love to sprawl out on the ground, cheek smooshed against the floor, and push your cars/trucks/trains along and watch the wheels spin.

- How you love airplanes and flying and are such a good little traveller! You get so excited about getting on the plane, taking off, saying bye-bye to the ground, seeing the clouds, and then coming down and seeing all the tiny houses and cars and saying hi to everything as we land.

- How you just love and adore your Papa... even though we've been away from him for a week now, you still talk about him everyday and get so excited when we see him on Skype. "Papa! Papa! Papa!"

- How you can be so incredibly frustrating, temper-tantrumming, melting-down-into-a-puddle-of-tears one minute (have the terrible twos arrived already?!), and then turn around and give big slobbery adoring kisses and snuggles and giggles the next minute.

- How much I love and adore your emerging little self - every little new thing you do is so wondrous to me! I can't believe how much and how quickly you are learning and growing.
