He tries to read me books sometimes and says a word or two about the page he’s on. It’s quite cute.
Has successfully broken my phone screen twice

Everyday you’re less and less a baby. You’re wildly smart and adventurous.
I sense a slight rebel, maybe because you’re closer to 2 than you are to 1 these days – but you’re a boundary pusher. You test the waters and do your own thing. We constantly need to keep our eyes on you.
Mornings now consist of you on my lap on the couch with a cow shaped plate full of yummy breakfast food and you holding the fork.
You love to dance, color, build, play ball and be outside. You have the sweetest way of saying “hi.” All coy and cute. We still debate cutting your hair, but most days I can’t seem to part with it. You’ve got this Florida boy meets West Coast thing (which is sooo cute and true) that I want to let it go.
You also have another big trip coming up! Your second time to CA, but we’re going to Santa Cruz which is special place to me and daddy, too. And you get to see your families ranch which I’m sure will blow your mind. Adventures with you kid is a total treat!
I love you, I love you, I love you.
