Favorite Things: Day 9

I know you're not supposed to have favorites, and I don't. Not really. But I have to say that the stage Jasper is at is one of my favorites developmentally. He's (somewhat tragically) left that true baby stage and is well on his way to being a full-blown toddling boy. He can stand on his own, but is still more interested in crawling. He loves rumpusing at night with us and in fact, if you ask him if he wants to rumpus, his eyes light up, he stands up and catapults himself fearlessly atop the nearest prostrate person on the floor. He is adored by all in this household and the boys recently said to me "oh Mama, we wish we could make Jasper stay like this always...he's just so cute!"

When we put music on, he immediately begins to boogie-woogie in his seat or wherever he is. It's the funniest thing and I wish I knew how to post video here because it'd be a special treat to watch in a few years when this age will be a distant and somewhat hazy memory.

Jasper still is quite a chill little baby, with a dimpled smile that would melt the hardest of hearts. I know it's quite the best thing to wake up to...this darling little boy standing up in his crib, looking expectantly over the bars with a huge grin on his face, ready to start the day!


  1. that's IT. i'm coming to visit. hopefully this summer. :D

  2. jasper is so absolutely adorable. i love his huge smiles through new teeth when i catapult him into the air.

  3. I can't comment on this post. I just can't. Nothing I say would do what I'm thinking justice. I need to see him.
