9 month baby boy

Image
Age: 9 months Weight & Height: 25 lbs.  - 31 inches. 99th percentiles  Things I enjoy: Crawling and pulling myself up to a standing position.  Skills I've mastered: I am really good at eating baby food and sitting up on my own!!! Looking forward to:  Saying a word or two and walking :) Tough Times: I'm still not sleeping through the night every night.  It's tough because Emma was sucking her thumb and self soothing at this point and I just can't figure out my thumb and sometimes Mr. Binks falls out and I can't find him. I do love mommy's cuddles too so I like to ask her for some in the middle of the night.  Exciting Events: I got to spend the night at Aunt Brookie's without Emma which was so fun because I got all the attention.  I also love pulling myself up on everything! Looking forward to: The BEACH! 1 month and I'll finally see what everyone keeps yapping about!!!

But, they were my first time making those and I know the mistakes I made.  Next time - PERFECTION!

Yesterday was Day #476 #1!  If at first you don't succeed, try try again right?

So, I'm trying to take more ownership of my eating habits and trying to really focus on making small changes.

So Breakfast I ate

Two Eggs fried with just a little bit of salt and pepper and a sliced tomato.


and the obvious staple - COFFEE!!! Cream and a tsp of sugar

What to say What to say

Life is so crazy right now :) 

Work is extremely busy,  having a two year old and an eight month old makes my life extremely busy, spending time with family is busy and above all that we have weddings and baby showers and birthday parties galore.

What a horrible problem to have, a successful job and a loving family and people who want to spend time with us!

I love writing in my blog. I wish I did it more.  To be honest I wish I even did the daily vlogs.  I do think I take a lot of pictures of my children but when I look back at old videos of Emma it just makes my heart melt every time.  I don't have many videos of Matthew.  It's quite an interesting tug of war within myself because when we are having wonderful times I purposely don't get the camera so I can be present and involved and not worried about the video but more worried about being a part of the moments.

I see these other mothers and it seems like they have their lives so together.  They d…
