  *A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014.* 

Matteo: You are a big 22 month old boy as of yesterday!  You've started singing along (sort of) to two songs this week: "Row, row, row your boat (you say "row row boat") and the "Na na na na na" song from the Lorax.  I think you appreciate the simplicity of the lyrics.  I moved the guest mattress into your room, hoping you'd be happier sleeping in there if you had more room.  No luck.  You definitely enjoy jumping all over it, though.  You also now use it as a springboard, knocking down books from the shelf and then stacking them up again (and knocking them down again...)  The extra foot and a half of height off the floor clearly makes you feel very tall and confident.


  1. Love the tail! Did you make it?

    1. Thanks! No, it was an Etsy purchase for his Halloween costume last year. You definitely could make it, though, pretty easily with orange and white felt and some elastic!!
