for two reasons...
reason #1: my baby is 8 months old. 8 MONTHS OLD?! Where the heck has the time gone. He's way too big. Mike always likes to make it known to me how big he's getting and I just want to curl up in a ball and cry because as most moms.... "want them to stay little.... forever". But I must admit, 8 months is pretty much fantastic. He's so chunky and just cuddly. I love it. He hasn't quite started the crawling thing yet but it sure is coming. He will be on his hands and knees and rock for several minutes at a time.
some new things he's doing:
-his favorite way to "talk" is a really angry sounding scream-grunt-type thing it's actually really hilarious.
-he sits up on his own. every morning in his crib we find him sitting up.
-plays peek-a-boo around corners and doors
-loves to work on his ever growing thighs (eating) that's not really new though..
-he's such a FLIRT
-knows very well how to hold and tip his bottle to get the very last drop
-his emotions show like crazy, he gets soo excited
-he has his first tooth and one that's about to break the surface any day now.
reason #2 for my panic attak:
i'm going back to work. mike and I have decided that a great opportunity has come up for me to work 8 hours a week. (not bad at all) i'll be going back to the gym to work there. where great commission opportunities are there. with trying to continue school and have a baby, there has been limited opportunites to save. when this opportunity came along, we jumped right on it as an opportunty to SAVE AWAY! This morning I got pretty sick about the whole idea of going back to work and leaving my baby behind with loving family. however, after talking with my mom I feel much better. This opportunity is such a blessing and I'm lucky that I don't have to work more hours and that this position is so flexible. I know that this is a huge blessing to our family. I'll just have to share my little ones chunky legs with my family for a couple hours a week.
That's all that's new with our family. Hope you enjoyed his 8 month pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. He's getting harder to photograph. Such a busy body!
