Oh how I miss (even though I never thought I would say this) my little baby about 8 or 9 months ago? Although he cried....A LOT...and I will never forget that time....I would love to see his first smile one more time. Or the first time he looked in my eyes and knew I was someone special in his life..not just that crazy lady who always changed his diapers. Man...now he is Mr. Independent. Walking along the edge of EVERYTHING and then crawling when he runs out of an edge to follow. Trying the meow like the cats...even though it comes out as a strange screech he seems to make the same sound every time the cats are around.
I prayed and prayed for him to gain weight but now I am starting to have back pains again (from several years ago) and wrist problems again because he is getting SO HEAVY...(so ok that is a praise and a prayer request all in one). Tonight in Cracker Barrel someone actually said that he looked big for a 10 1/2 month old. I was so proud!!!
Now I am having to make sure that I do not put ANYTHING within reach on tables and in the floor. We put the toys back in the toy basket about 50,000 times every day and 10 minutes later he crawls over and pulls E.V.E.R.Y single one out again. So I just stopped trying to clean up after him until the end of the day. I worried and wondered for 6 months when he would get teeth (cause he was droolin' and chewin' since he was about 3 months old)..Now he has 2 bottom teeth and the 2 top are coming in with the two top on either side of the 2 middle getting started right behind them.
I am so honored and I LOVE being a mom!!! I would have 19 more if we wouldn't look like those weird TLC families...OK...maybe just 1 or 2 more...lol!!!
