My Jeffy Doodlebug

Jeffy is growing into such a handsome little boy! He no longer is my little baby, but he forever will be my firstborn, the first little one who gave me the experience of a mother's love.

My little boy loves to laugh! He loves to play--especially anything physical. He got a basketball hoop for his birthday a few weeks ago and he LOVES it. He immediately put the ball through the hoop and now is good enough to even throw a basket! He carries the ball with him everywhere, even to bed. A few days ago he caught a ball for the first time and Daddy was ecstatic. Now catch is his favorite game.

I love how he looks for my approval and praise. He gets downright giddy when I praise him for doing something well. It is so cute! When he wants my attention and I'm distracted by something else, he comes up and puts his face right next to mine and turns my head towards him.

He is the best older brother I ever could have wished for. He loves to entertain Katelyn and tries to help feed her, although I have to watch for things that shouldn't go in her mouth. He tickles her and laughs with her, and will even share his basketball with her. It seems like they've known each other for a long time. I think they're going to be close friends.

Jeffy is so sweet and I love him dearly. I love how he gives me hugs and lets me kiss his cheek. I love how he talks in his own language and acts like I understand. I love how much he adores his daddy and even tries to walk around in his combat boots. I love his sweet little spirit. I can't wait to watch as he grows into the good, kind-hearted, strong man I know he is going to be. I'm already proud of him.
