What a difference a day makes. Suddenly he is trying whatever we put on his tray, and even likes some of it! As much as I love our time together, I am now seeing a future with a little more freedom (and maybe singing fewer renditions of "I'm a Little Teapot" to get him to open his mouth). While it makes me happy, it also makes me a little sad. Big is getting big.
He is looking so old:
I expected Big to look a little more like this on his Birthday:
Looking at a bird outside:
Just too cute:
Big is also turning into quite the climber now that he is getting more steady on his feet. I was a huge climber as a kid and I jumped off pretty much anything I climbed. I hope Big is a little more careful than I was, he doesn't need a gray and dead front tooth like I had (my landings weren't super successful, I guess). It's kind of funny that Bud looks like me but is cautious like Rophone, and Big looks like Rophone....well, you get it.
