Morning at the park with my littlest bestie.

Some pictures from the last week.
We took Wes to a museum for the first time.
Looked at lots of fountains.
Bought a baby pool.
Left him with my parents all day for the first time so we could go to a wedding we were both in.
He is now able to suck the fruit out of a squeeze baby food thing.
Went on a swing for the first time.
He is pulling himself up on EVERYTHING.

Some pictures from the last month. Everything is going by so fast, he is growing up so fast. We have been spending a lot of time with family lately. There’s nothing like having a child to make you appreciate what really matters in life.

This little monster is 8 months old today! Sometimes the days (and nights) seem to go by so slow, but somehow I blinked and 8 months just flew by. He truly is his own little person now, and he makes sure everyone knows it. He’s very expressive with letting me know when he likes or dislikes something. It can be a bit frustrating at times, especially at meal, nap, and bed time, but still really cute.

He’s cruising all the furniture, walking with his little walker, standing for up to 30 seconds unassisted, pulling himself up to standing from either sitting or laying down, babbling like a mad man, army crawling all over the place, chasing us of we try to leave the room…and yeah, basically just very mobile.

We’re in kind of a rut with the solid foods, he’s recently started refusing everything (except the boob) I try to give him. It’s really frustrating. I’m just not sure how important solid foods are to his health and nutrition at this point. I worry about it a lot actually.

I’ve been mia on here for a couple weeks now, and I have a lot more to update, but I’m just so tired. All. The. Time. I’m a bridesmaid in a wedding, so I’ve been busy with everything that entails. My husband just went back to school, so he’s pretty much gone from 6am to 10pm every weekday, because he goes straight from work. I’ve been trying little by little to lose these last 15 pounds of baby weight, mostly with just a lot of long walks with Wes. But yeah, just really tired, usually my free moments are spent trying to take a nap. I need to get back to documenting on here though, I really like going back and reading what I was going through and how I was feeling in those moments.

I got all ready this morning to go to Thursday story hour at the library when Wes wakes up from his nap. Diaper bag packed, makeup done, non yoga pant outfit on… And then I realized it was Friday. I don’t think my pregnancy brain ever went away.

Mirror mirror on the wall… It’s so cool watching him discover himself and the world around him.

We have ears saaaay cheers! Engrossed in MMC while I drink my much needed morning coffee. This teething has got to stop. We were up all night last night, and this morning he was biting his fingers so hard he drew blood. I try to give him different things to bite down on, but he only wants his fingers. My poor sweetie pie. So if cartoons can distract him for 10 or 15 minutes, then cartoons it is… I don’t give a crap if the pediatrician says no tv before two.

Just put this little burrito to bed. He is finally able to fall asleep on his own in his crib for all naps and bedtime (most of the time), and it has made life so much easier. Now if he can just work on staying asleep at night, that would be awesome.

Anyone with a baby boy (or toddler) that hates how boy pants are made so wide legged, go check out the Target toddler girl section asap. They have all their fall clothes in now, so there are a lot of darker colored girls pants. They’re 30% off too! The two pairs on the right were $3.50 each, and the two pairs on the left were $5.60 each. The middle jean-looking ones are herringbone, and so freaking cute! They also had orange, turquoise, and neon patterned ones, I got so excited. I’ll probably go back next week and get more. Just wanted to give yall a heads up.
