Primary Songs

Since Lila has started in Sunbeams, I have really wanted her to know her primary songs well. We have been practicing at home. Here is just a little delight for all of you who wonder how good she might be doing.

So... This Happened

Luckily, this look only lasted a few minutes until he could finish shaving his face. He has been going back and forth between a short beard and being clean shaven. As long as that nasty little critter doesn't hang around, I'm okay with either one. And in case you are wondering, yes, I screamed when I saw this. Out of shock. And horror. 

He Moves

So, it's not exactly crawling, but it gets him around well enough. He loves being mobile. This was taken the day before he turned 8 months, but his style is pretty much the same still.

Eight Months

8 whopping months! I can't believe it. He is so big. I feel like the last month he has completely changed. He went from being a mostly happy, mellow baby, to totally needy and demanding.  Good thing he is so cute, or I might be completely insane right now. You know, instead of mildly. It gets tiring standing around, looking at all the things I need to get done. I am not one of those amazing moms that can do everything one-armed. So, I just enjoy having such a cute baby and try not to waste this time with him by getting too frustrated. Here are some other things about him:

loves scratching faces. starting to play around with making sounds. most often the sound he chooses is "duh", pronounced like when you explain to a child what D says. has been snotty for a whole month, but no sign of teeth. wears size 3 diapers and 6-9 month clothes. goes to bed at 8:00 without problem. usually wakes up between 5 and 6 to eat, then takes another 1-2 hour nap. rolls and rolls and rolls. scooches around a lot. is happy dragging himself around this way by his hands. feels no need for using his knees. loves mommy. if mom looks at him when he's playing, he starts to cry because he wants her. looks for mom when dad is holding him. smiles big and giggles when he finds her. went swimming for the first time. loves being in water. giggles when he sees us getting his bath ready. sometimes needs his binky to be happy. likes it most right after mommy's milk. whenever he puts it in his mouth he does a weird sort of humming sound. finally eats his cereal. doesn't eat baby food. eats most dinners off mommy's plate if its something he can eat. likes to be rough and thrown around. still scared of Lila. cries even when she gives him a gentle hug. sometimes will let her make him giggle, as long as she isn't touching him. he's my cutie and I love him.

Sorry I only have a few pictures from today, but he is still such a cutie cutie.

Lila Quotes

Sometimes when when I sleep with my mouth open my bed gets wet and that's why I wake up

I don't look any cute. Wait! I forgot, I'm always cute!

I never want to have a baby. I don't want a needle in my arm. I just want to stay a kid.

(While praying) We're thankful for babies. Bless that Grayson will grow out of Kayla's mommy's tummy.

You're the first best mommy! (as in I take first place, not the first one ever.)
