1 month shy of a year!

Our baby is growing up ever so quickly... I can't believe he's almost a year! Every mother says it goes by way too fast, but I didn't realize just how fast it goes. Roman is a delight! He jabbers all the time (& still has that raspy "smokers" voice we love)! He says "Dada, Dad" almost constantly & "Momma" when he's sad or tired. He has added some new words like "Baba", "Dog", "Jesus", "Yeah", & "Car", but it's predominately babbling different forms of the word "Daddy" (He LOVES Anthon). I've started to notice all the nicknames we call him- Just to name a few: Romey, Rome, Romester, Buddy, Brother, Bro-man, Sucker, & Skinny. He is a busy boy these days- not walking independently yet, but cruises along with assistance from the furniture/cupboards, his walker or bike, & our hands. He's learned to take the lids off of almost every container he's NOT suppose to get into & still finds joy in all aspects of the bathroom! In spite of all the mischief, he is the soft spot on our hearts, the greatest joy in our life, & the thing we are MOST grateful for!
Oh, & he's not a fan of Santa. When we were in TX we took all the kids to the mall to get pictures on Santa's lap- screamed bloody murder the entire time! This picture is from our ward Christmas party. As you can see, he's still leery of the man in the big red suit!

Such a sweetie! That pic of him looking at Santa is cute, and it is the first time to me that I thought he looks like a Perkins

Kinda made me sad to read "1 month shy of a year" How is that possible, it goes by way too fast! I am impressed with all the words he is saying, that is so good! You always have him looking so handsome Ash! What are your plans for his first big birthday??

Too cute! He is getting so big. Christian was not the biggest Santa fan either!

Layne could take lids off and open doors at the age of 1, that is not normal. You are going to have a lot to clean up in the future. I suggest getting a toilet lock. You can loose some precious stuff in the crapper!

I can't believe he is almost a year either. It goes by ridiculously fast! I don't think I really know any little kids that love Santa. I know Grant hates him still!

Hilarious :) Sydney hated Santa too for the first two Christmases of her life. You saw, now she adores him. Don't worry, Broman, there's hope! :) Love you guys!
