Joseph Jr. - 15 Months Old

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. ~ Psalm 127:3

Baby boy's new favorite place to be ~ inside the dryer. 
(Don't worry...his sisters have been told not to close him in there!)

Joseph is 15 months old and the bigger he gets the more clear it is that he is all boy. Wherever he goes he is consistently picking up sticks and rocks and dirt. Earlier this week I found a pile of dirt and a ziptie in the fridge because he dropped it there when his sisters were looking for a snack.

He is crazy busy and always moving and can keep up with his sisters most days. 

He loves being outside and can throw a great tantrum when it's time to come in. Today, we played out in the rain for about an hour and everyone was just happy as could be to be mucking around in the mud and puddles. 

The weather has been awesome and we spent the afternoon at the park recently. It took Joseph no time at all to get comfortable on everything and was going down the slide all by himself almost immediately. 

We have been so blessed that all our kiddos are pretty good eaters...Joseph included. He loves all the yummy things like popcorn, fruit and bacon, but also enjoys brussel sprouts, broccoli and oatmeal. 

Our growing boy gives a mean hi-five and gives loads of sloppy kisses that sometimes include a good head butt. 

He is still nursing and he and I are still limiting dairy and gluten which seems to be keeping his skin looking great. I have noticed that I can have some of those things and he seems to tolerate them, but does seem to react when he has them directly. The reactions are slight and much better and shorter lived than they use to be...so just maybe his little digestive system is maturing and he is outgrowing his intolerants.  

What a blessing he is to us!

God bless!
