Too Fast

My baby is growing up WAY TOO FAST.

Hey! Are you talking to ME?

There are aspects of my life that I wish would go much faster and yet typically, I try to just enjoy the moment that I’m in. But in all of the busyness of this season of our lives, I often feel that I’m missing out on “just enjoying” the time with my baby. I think that I know that once this time is gone, I’ll never get it back and so I’m trying to hold onto every moment that I can get. Often it feels like I just don’t have the opportunity to “just enjoy” and truth be told, sometimes I’m just way too tired to “enjoy” and we’re left with just holding on and surviving through “this moment”.

Ah well, It is what it is and I refuse to beat myself up (too badly) over it all.

I’m hiding

Judah is almost 7 months old. How is that even possible? Man!

Peek-A-Boo! I see you!

He’s right at 27 pounds….typing that out it seems so crazy! And I have no idea how long he is…long enough to look WAY older than almost 7 months old. He’s wearing 12-18 month clothes. He is such a happy baby, unless he’s upset, and then……THEN HE’S REALLY UPSET!

He knows how to let you know that he’s not happy about something. There are no worries that he might get lost in all of the day to day chaos. No Sir! That kid communicates quite loudly about his wants and needs.

And…..He is mobile! GAWK!

Up on all fours

He’s not crawling (normally) just yet, but I suspect that it’s any day now. He does get up on all fours and so I’m on the look out for when he starts to “crawl”. Right now he does this cute little army crawl and can get from one end of our dining/living room all the way to the other. We can’t just put him down on the floor and expect him to stay put. Nope! He is ALL OVER the place.

I need to get a video of him to show you. It’s SO cute!

I’m so cute, aren’t I?

He can even sit for brief periods of time now. Man! This time goes by so SO fast.

We are so thrilled to have this darling little man in our lives. He is such a blessing to us and brings such light and joy to our lives.

Shhhhh! Don’t tell anyone I can crawl or they might not pick me up as often!

I'm the ringmaster of my own circus. Just trying to stay one step ahead of the monkeys.
