  4. he’s growing so well! :) He’s beautiful…

  5. He is absolutely precious Joanna!

    This makes me a little sad though because it doesn’t feel like that long ago that we were celebrating milestones like this as well.

  38. Yay Toby! How brilliant! :) I have to just say he has the sweetest face! Those eyes… ahhh!

  39. boy is he CUTE!

    Loved seeing your place by the way and I was excited to see a bottle of Pimm’s. I love Pimm’s and Ginger in the summer!

  40. Aww long at home strong he’s getting!! Such a cutie

  41. Haha I love this! He should have his own show full of his amazing adventures =)

  42. such a sweet little baby burrito! xo

  43. Toby, you are quite a talented young man! I can barely do the head raise myself some mornings.

  44. Strong boy! Such a cutie!

  46. Such cuteness! Yay Toby!


  47. G. says...

    Well done Toby!

  48. yay Toby! And you look great doing it! What gorgeous eyes.

  49. Congrats Toby! Your momma is so proud.

    Joanna, isn’t it amazing how much they change and grow each day? My mom still wonders at all the things I learn/do everyday, so I don’t think that feeling ever goes away.

  50. he looks like he’s working hard! how adorable. aren’t the smallest developments so exciting to celebrate?!

  51. He looks sooo like you in these pics! :)

  52. so, so adorable

    i think he’s totally a mix of you too by now…
    from the photos you show us, I think he has daddy’s smile but the eyes area are YOU! haha

    my daughter was the same: 50-50
    then she was all dad… now she’s changing and looks like me more…

    the important thing: they’re the cutest thing!!!!!

  53. I love that children help remind you of life’s small triumphs and joys- perhaps Toby’s greatest trick of all!

  54. What a wonderful new trick, I know he has more tricks up his sleeve – looking forward to them all!!

  55. I love that you are so tummy time conscientious! It makes such a difference! Toby will have a 6 pack at 15 mths.

  56. Joanna, he is soooo precious! I know that you are having the time of your life.

    Wow, I can’t believe how much his face has changed! Such a cutie.

  58. Toby, keep up the good work, kiddo!

    Joanna, he *totally* looks like his mama. xo.

  59. such cutie-cuteness!
    but i have to say, i’m glad it’s not a video. my 18-month-old has not gone a day without asking for “baby” since you posted the giggle clip. i believe he has now watched it as many times as you!

  60. Look at him! that’s adorable!
    I love how babies try and try until they achieve their goals. We, the grown ups, should learn from them, not the other way around!
