7 months old!

On December 15, LB turned 7 months old! Getting closer and closer to many more milestones, but enjoying every single one day by day. I expected lots of changes lots of challenges, lots of learning to be done when LB was born, but some things I just didn't anticipate. I never eve really thought about some things. Trimming tiny fingernails...and even harder, trimming tiny toe nails. And constantly! It's like every day for my boy! Grocery shopping, just LB and me. He is now finally able to sit in the big boy seat in the cart which makes it a lot easier to fill up my cart, but I make sure I keep a hand on him at ALL TIMES! I promise you the washer and dryer eat baby socks too, not just adult ones. I even have the mesh bag for his socks and they still go missing! Oh how I adore being a wife, mommy and pregnant!! 

Now that LB is army crawling very fast, he gets up on his hands and knees and will rock back and forth! He has taking a few real crawls but hasn't gotten the hang of it totally! He also will come pull on my pant legs when he wants to be picked up! He can get in the sitting position and does it so well! How is all tis possible? He was just born the other day! Although I'm so proud and excited about all these things he's learning to do, it still makes me sad. Although I'm tired and grouchy at times I don't wish away his infant months...I want to enjoy every second that he's little! I hear Byron say all the time "I can't wait until he's 4 or 5 and I can take him fishing and hunting" but deep down I'm crying cuz I don't want him to grow up too fast. I appreciate being tired during this stage of his life. I find myself afraid to blink at times. 

LB is now to the stage that he reaches for me!! It's so precious! It melts my heart! Even more precious Is watching him reach for his daddy! LB does everything with a smile on his face. If he is anything, he is fearless. LB is the cutest, sweetest, funniest guy in the whole world. 

LB is eating some table food but mainly baby food! He loves all fruits and is also a fan of squash and beans.

We love you LB! To the moon and back. 

6 month post!

This is wayyyy past due but I find I spend my time giving LB my full attention and by the time I get me time after he goes to bed, I wanna spend it going to bed myself! So I'm finally getting time to post about his 1/2 birthday :) It's amazing to me the changes that can happen to someone so tiny in 6 months. To see these changes take place daily just blows my mind. At his 6 month well baby check up he weighed 18 pounds and 10.5 ounces and was 27.5 inches. His feet are about hanging out of his car seat! He's going to get his daddy's height! Or maybe his Uncle Daniel's! He is wearing size 3 diaper, 6/9 month clothes and 9 month pajamas!

LB is now sitting up on his own, can be a little wobbly at times but it's amazing how he is learning to catch his balance as well! He is Army crawling EVERYWHERE! He will disappear in a matter of seconds. Byron loves to play with LB on the floor! He says LB is tough and sometimes scares me with how rough he plays (he does that on purpose though)! LB adores Thorn and Thorn adores him; Thorn is so calm and gentle around it and they are becoming best friends!!

LB, you are mommy and daddy's pride and joy!

We love you!
