It’s been a while

So I’ve been off the grid for a while now thanks to my first year teaching in a private school, going back to school to finish my education certificate, keeping up with my two year old, and with the expectation of my second baby (10 weeks to go). I’ve been so busy with those things I’ve had to put my photography business on hold, and have even found I have almost no time to snap a photo of the day. The one thing I have recently started making time for again is knitting and crocheting…to keep my sanity. If you think public school kids are stressful, try dealing with private school parents. I almost quit at the end of the first quarter because I had a lot of parents angry that their kids had earned a B in Art instead of an A. And they weren’t very civil about how they approached me on the matter. Most were aggressive and some even got nastily mean. I would honestly trade a year in a public school with 85 kids in one class than deal with those parents for a single day again. So I picked my needles back up after a long hiatus and made some pretty cute baby hats, and I’ve got the two sides of a pillow complete. I just have to stitch the pillow pieces together and stuff it. Five more days until Christmas break.

Busy bee

I’ve been very busy this month with weddings, events, and portrait sessions. So there has been very little time for blogging, especially with Louie demanding so much time. He is growing like a weed by the way. He is only six months old and weighs 20 pounds and is 27 3/4 inches long (tall). He’s a rolley polley porker and I love it!

He is teething too. Toss in some separation anxiety and that makes him an extremely cranky kido when I’m not around.

On the upside, he has gotten very good at sitting up on his own. Only rarely does he topple over.

Still hates being on his tummy so no crawling yet. All in all, he’s pretty happy.

Five Months of Love

I look at my son as we lay here in bed with my husband. Both are soundly asleep. It’s hard to believe that five and a half months has gone by since this little man entered our lives.

Yes, it has been difficult at times, but we are so thankful to have him.

He’s learned quite a bit in the last two months alone. He can now lift his head when he’s on his tummy (though he hates being there).

He’s also in love with the new knowledge that he can hold his feet. On more than one occasion, we’ve watched him pull his socks off.

He’s also getting better at sitting up, though sometimes he wobbles and tilts over still. I think he’ll be able to avoid that in the next month.

Other exciting news…he’s started eating “solids.” Right now it’s things like baby cereal, baby food, and puréed fruits and veggies…well, mostly fruits. He won’t eat it if its not sweet. I think he has inherited my sweet tooth.

He’s been to his first baseball game. We went to watch daddy coach the high school team.

And my little man loves it when we read to him. He’s even started “reading” to his teddy. It was so cute! He would look at the page, then start babbling, then look at his teddy, and babble some more.

When it’s all said and done, I know I am so blessed to have this little man in my life. I can’t wait to see what the next five months will bring.
