I think this photo says so much. Dmitri is quite a character, and we are enjoying watching his own personality develop and unfold! He is so curious. We call him our monkey.
This evening, as I was trying to put him to bed, he was wanting to play instead of sleep. So I "played dead" in hopes that he would get the idea that it was time to calm down and sleep. He was quiet for a few minutes, so I half-opened one of my eyes to peep at him, and he is sitting beside me, starring at me. I quickly close my eye, hoping that maybe he didn't see me open it. He proceeded to climb on top of me, grab the eyelashes of my "peeping eye" and pry open my eye.
Oh, Dmitri. You are so funny. Except when you wake me up every morning by shaking my head by my hair to the point of hemorrhaging. That's not cool.
I love the way that you view the world: everything and everywhere is an adventure to explore. I hope that you rub off on me.
I love you so much.
As I always say, but yet it's always true, time goes by so quickly. I can hardly believe his first birthday is coming up...I'm already on top of the party, so get excited. Details to come.
