this kid makes me laugh

in a bit of a funk today. maybe because it is threatening to snow, and the day it starts to snow here is the day i  start my winter mourning. this san diego girl is not cut out for the winter. no snow on the ground so far, but i can feel it in the air..

moving on.
you know what's making me happy today?
this kid:

sometimes i feel bad that henry hasn't gotten the same blog-time and documentation as his older brother did. but let's be honest, my life was a heck-of-a-lot less complicated when it was just me and owen.
no allora. no school for dad. no queen bee. no siblings. just me and o.
and poor henry may have gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to journaling about his firsts, etc. but the kid is pretty dang happy anyways.
love him.
a total bulldozer, complete disregard for personal safety, and will do anything to get people to laugh at him.
when he turned 1 in march i *may* have been concerned he wasn't the smartest kid on the block (don't tell him that!) he only said one word regularly at that time: dad. (he is a total daddy's boy.)
now, at a year and a half, the kid is blowing me away. 
knows animals, animal sounds, abc's, numbers, recognizes some of his letters and numbers, and repeats just about anything.
besides that, henry's got a mean booty shake going on.
(it's to die for.)
his hugs and kisses make me melt, and his laugh is absolutely 100% contagious. 

and i'm so happy he's mine.

He's adorable. I demand video of the booty shaking dance. And hey, at a year and a half my FIRST child still isn't that much of a fan of words. Signing, yes. Words, meh.
