My littlest boy is becoming a big boy more and more every day.
|Racing with his brothers from one end of the house to the other.|
Mac's vocabulary has been growing lately. Some of his favorite words are mama, dada, ball, car, rock, cheese-stick, o-plane (airplane), and boon (balloon). He has several others and I pick up on new ones every couple of days.
|Baby Mac in the lead! What a rascal!|
He also started saying one sentence a couple of weeks ago: It's a ball. He would say this one sentence every day, whenever he'd pick up a ball. And if he ever said any other sentence I could not understand it. Just yesterday he added a new one: It's a rock. And then this morning I am pretty sure I heard: I see a ball.

Some nights after James and Henry get tucked in, I take Mac to my room and we play on my bed before he gets his bedtime nursing. He is fascinated by the cluster of family pictures above our bed. There are pictures of Mike and me, some of all 3 boys, and one of all 5 of us.
Last night I heard him saying James' and Henry's names for the first time while he pointed at their pictures! I had been waiting for this moment for months. When he pointed at James he said "Gee" and when he pointed at Henry it sounded like "Hidy."
