My baby... my BABY... is not so much a baby. He just turned 9 months old. And as you Mama's know... turning 9 months is one of those reflective turns of the calendar as you think back to how your baby has now lived in the great big world as long as they were in your belly's... so yeah... very pleased to be the Mama to sweet and active bundle of smiles both within my belly and outside of it!
He crawls EVERYWHERE and pulls up on any surface he can find. He's my adventurous and fearless baby, so I'm a little worried what the future holds! He is determined and vocal and completely has me smitten over him!
Here we are the day of his baby dedication at church... Squinty one and squinty two... this shows why I am always in sunglasses outside and I-man has bluer eyes and squints like me too!
And his official 9 month photo...
And then there is the sweet big brother who will be 3 in just a couple months! I thank the Lord for the opportunity to be Mama to the world's best boys (not that I am biased). : )
Here he is painting his lawn mower he built at a Home Depot kids workshop day. He loves to swing a hammer and build and paint and use his hands. He is just like his daddy! Handy and a brain that turns in a very "engineering" way. Always wondering how things work, what they are made out of etc. I'm more of a right brain... so its fun to look at life and answer questions through his lenses.
And Running-- you know I am still running. But I've added cross training and love that. SO now I run 2 times a week and cross train/strength train 2+ days a week. Since I started p90x in February and kept up with the cross training-- I lost extra poundage doing this routine (as in the 10lbs I needed to lose to get back to pre-preg weight)! Yeah!
Enough rambles for the day-- I finally had an all kid-fee day thanks to my sweet sister in law watching the boys today! Off to go enjoy the last few minutes alone... and can't wait to hug my boys again! : )
