Crazy Boy!

Having a 7 month old is keeping me pretty busy around here! I honestly didn't expect things to be this crazy quite this early but he is one strong and (strong willed) little boy! He is pretty much running all over the place. I mean, he's not "walking" quite yet although he is trying along the furniture. But when he crawls he can crawl super fast!

Jack's latest trick is CLIMBING on things! I did not think I would have to worry about that quite yet either. He spotted something he wanted on top of our fake fireplace and proceeded to climb up two boxes that I had sitting next to it to get to it. I caught him red handed! All of this new exploring is leaded to lots of supervision, lots of "no, no's", and a lot of meltdowns from learning what happens when he exceeds his limits. (aka- bangs on the head mostly!)

I've started to blend some of my own baby food which is nice and definitely saves money.

Jacob has been super busy at work and it doesn't look like it will be slowing down anytime soon. With me only being in the office two days a week for a very small window of time I'm trying to play catch up too. I've been able to do a little work from home but it is definitely harder. Jack has a terrible time sleeping anywhere but his crib now (unless he's in the car) so that is hard for me to get a long stretch of work since he still takes 3 naps a day. I REAALLY need to start working out more often. Not having a regular workout routine since about 6 months preggo = a lot of flab, lossed muscle tone, and zero motivation. As I'm writing this I'm  thinking about how I want Taco Bell (I just did a Jillian Michael's DVD by the way)... my husband just calls and says he's at Dairy Queen.... so much for that workout!! I downloaded the Couch to 5K app on my phone- just waiting for some warmer weather so I can take Jack along with me. I dont like making him be in the cold- his little face always gets snotty and his eyes are watery after our stroller rides! Can I just say that my bladder really took a beating being pregnant? I know... TMI. But seriously- anyone else have that problem?

SOO looking forward to Spring and warmer weather so we can be outside more!!! We've had a few nice days but I want jeans and T-shirt weather!

7 Months Old!

7 Months Old! {Holy Cow!}

  • You are crawling all over the place now~ we have had to put up a gate so you dont run down the hall or into the kitchen or ANYWHERE but where you are supposed to be.
  • You pull yourself up on everything
  • You can climb up the stair in our living room
  • You touch everything
  • We try and tell you no but you dont really understand yet.
  • You do understand when we have the "mad or stern" tone and it makes you cry
  • You are seriously stubborn
  • You think you are much bigger than you are which makes you mad because you can't do what you want
  • You love Duke and he tolerates you for the most part. He likes to be near you but really isnt interested in being pet by you too much unless I'm holding you
  • My parents dog Tanner lets you crawl all over him and hug him and you love that
  • You chase the cat constantly
  • I think you are cutting a tooth- youve been on and off grumpy and had trouble sleeping last night and at the babysitters today
  • Man I hope it pops through soon so we can get this over with
  • Speaking of sleep- you have been sleeping through the night lately- about 10 hours so when you have a bad night it's torture and I have no idea what is wrong 
  • You like to wrestle with your dad
  • He can make you laugh pretty hard
  • You are clingy to me right now
  • You can throw a tantrum with the best of them~ GEEZ kid!
  • You're really starting to like your food and have started the "2nd" Foods.
  • I sort of feel like I should be making my own baby food instead of giving you the pre made stuff but we'll see. 
  • You are such a ham and you make me laugh everyday!
  • I love you to the moon and back little man
