Happy 14 Months Little Guy

Where oh where does the time go?

Darcy turned fourteen months today, boy is he growing up fast. Much to my chagrin he is becoming more independent each day and getting up to more mischief every day. I have to keep a constant eye on him...a total change from the girls...he climbs. Onto the table, onto the couch and into the window, he pulls all my pots and pans and cookbooks out, we moved the DVDs months ago, he loves to get into the bottom of the pantry if I forget to put the child lock on and pull out all the tins of food, he eats crayons if the girls leave them anywhere within reach, he pulls all the clothes out of their cupboards, he stands up on his ride on truck that Pa made him and rides it like a skateboard (heart attack material).
He screams in frustration when he can't achieve his goal.

On the encouraging side, he is beginning to sleep better. I think (fingers crossed) that we have turned a corner. He only woke at midnight and five last night...oh blessed sleep. He is consistently sleeping a two hour nap during the day also...except for today, of course with Charlotte at Kinder and Sophia at School, the best thing to do would be have a 40 minute nap and then wake up screaming inconsolably!! All my efforts to resettle him failed and I spent a miserable 30 minutes trying to console him.

He was being so silly, I just couldn't resist taking these photos.
He isn't the type to have a mild hissy fit. This boy has a "throw himself on the floor with no regard to personal injury" type of tantrum...arms and legs flailing, headbutting the floorboards, screaming the house down.
He doesn't do it very often, but when he does, look out.

He is normally such a sweet natured little guy, with plenty of kisses and cuddles for almost everyone.
He runs around the house non stop, and loves to cuddle the cats. His big sisters torment him by including him in their games, but making him sit in the dolls cot to watch.  

He certainly keeps me busy.
