a photo of Emmet every week in 2017
This kid. is. everywhere.
Up and down, climbing under things, climbing over things, stretching up high and reaching down low while standing. He can get almost anywhere he wants to around the house, which makes for a much more entertaining day at home! He currently plays pretty independently, which is super great when this momma has things to get done, but every once in awhile it will get too quiet and I will find him back in the corner of his room playing happily with his moon in my room remote (we have quadruple checked to make sure the batteries won't come out!). My absolute favorite thing is finding the clues to where he has been when I haven't been watching. I find his toys in the strangest places around the house.; in the desk drawers, behind speakers, on chairs, in laundry baskets, in the dresser drawers, and in the bottom of the shoe basket. If he can reach it, he will drop his toy in to see what will happen and if he can't get the toy back he just leaves it there like a crumb in the forest for his momma to find. This toy, though, in the photo, he decided was obtainable. He clambered under the chair to get it and shortly after this photo was taken, cried for his momma to come get him out and I, of course, scooped him up immediately and kissed his little head. My adventurous boy.
