Being Mobile


Merry Christmas Everyone!

Bo had a great 1st Christmas! We saw lots of family over the last few days and it was nice to stay at home and watch Bo have fun with his new toys and spend time with both Grandmas and Grandpas.

Bo has been "scooting" for the past week and half to two weeks, but yesterday he almost figured out how to crawl. He saw his new toys, and that was all the motivation he needed. He just needs a little more coordination with the legs and he's there.

I really am excited for this new milestone but its also bittersweet. Our baby is growing up too fast! Where has the last 8 months gone?? It was nice to leave him on the floor and know that he would be there just happy playing, not going anywhere. But not anymore!

Babyproofing the house shouldn't be too bad, I just hope I don't forget something.

Sleep

Sleep...it's overrated right? Ha, I try and tell myself that. For the past week and half, Bo has been waking himself up anywhere from 3:30 am to 5 am, just talking and babbling to himself. I am such a light sleeper that I wake up to it right away....and it's hard for me to fall back asleep to it. Kyle, on the other hand, is always sleeping as hard as a rock. So I go get him and feed him and we both fall back asleep until its time to get up (usually by 6). I know this needs to stop, because he's at the age where he can (and needs to) fall back asleep on his own. And its not like he's hungry. If he was hungry, he would cry. I just don't know what to do. I've been reading a couple of different methods of getting them to fall back asleep on their own so we'll give it shot. He's been such a good sleeper up until now, I'd hate for it to end....and I'd like my sleep back. Hope that doesn't sound selfish...

Continued Post

Sorry, I am having issues with the video uploading. Here is a video of Bo from Sunday, just babbling away. He's discovering how loud he can make his voice be, which I think is hilarious.

Now and Then

It is just amazing how fast they grow in such little time. Granted, I still consider Bo a peanut because he is a little small for his age (although he is growing good). As I am sitting here trying to decide what I want on my Christmas card, I ran across some videos of him. I thought it would be fun to post an older one, plus his newest one. Here is Bo at 1 month old. I just love the little noises he used to make while sucking on his paci.

What a ham

We took Bo to get his pictures done last Wednesday. The place was starting to get busy, but we managed to only have to wait a few minutes. He did wonderfully. The photographer kept commenting on how good he was, and how she wished every baby was as happy as him. What can I say, the Lord blessed us with a great baby and Kyle and I feel very fortunate to be his parents. We had a hard time deciding what pictures to get because they were all so stinkin cute!

Halloween Fun

Bo was soo adorable in his Nemo costume. I brought him into work and everyone got a kick out of him. He was all smiles and laughing with my co-workers. It was way past nap time but he didn't seem to mind. He did take a quick cat nap at my desk. It amazes me how quickly he can fall asleep for me. I just have to pop in a paci, cradle him in my arms and swing or sway and he's out.






Thank you Droddys for the cute mummy shirt!

6 months old already?!

So Bo had his 6 month appt last Thursday. He now weighs 15lbs 4oz and is 26 inches long. He's getting big but he's still my little peanut ;). It seems like yesterday that he was just this tiny little newborn that surprised us all by coming into the world a month early.

We couldn't have asked for a better baby. He smiles and laughs all the time. People always comment how good he is in church and how he doesn't even make a peep. Which surprises us sometimes too because he does love to babble and talk to us.

I really am enjoying breastfeeding. Before I was pregnant, I thought I would do it until he was 6 months or got teeth. Now that he is 6 months, I can't see myself giving it up anytime soon. We'll probably go a year...maybe longer...depends on those teeth and when they get here..lol

We finally have a blog!

I don't really know what took me so long to get one started...but I guess its better late that never! Welcome to our blog.
