"a portrait of my son, once a week, every week in 2014"

Jimmy: The Toddler.

Another beautiful photo taken by Michael. And yes, it was actually warm enough to be outside without a jumper, coat, hat, and gloves.

Jimmy's vocabulary in the last week or so has grown so much, the words are coming thick and fast, although still yet to be fully formed: cheese, bath, banana, and weewee. This is in addition to Mum, Dad, tree, there, that, no, and done. Sounds like phrases are emerging too: he's saying "nonee" when we would say "there's no need for that". He is direct in his requests (unless he's trying to stay awake), his language comprehension is amazing, he's testing boundaries while playing along, and developing good table manners. Running is happening too.

Jimmy is a toddler. And he is so much fun.

P.S. This is my 100th post! Thanks for reading!!
