Growing so fast

I used to wait impatiently for milestones.
Little did I know that when crawling time came around,
I would wish you back to your stationary former self!
Now little feet are so quick to dart away,
And little hands impossible to contain.

The daring 8-month old

Isn't he the spitting image of his uncle? *(sorry, dad!)

And we have liftoff this week -- he's able to now use furniture to help him stand up supported.
Many bumps and bruises all week long.
But you wouldn't know from the look on his face 5 minutes after the deed.
His crawling style has refined somewhat -- quite like a soldier (according to babycenter.com) "bellying through the underbrush"

This is an expression we wear frequently now.

Fever, part II

Fever again.
Teething?  Lots of crying, fussing, lack of sleep.

Friday, February 4, 2011


 He was sick for 5 days.
His only symptom was a moderately high fever up to 104 degrees.
The nights were hard
Frequent crying, fussing, waking episodes
But he seems better now.
I'm very thankful.

His eczema seems to be better with the moisturing lotion that the dermatologist recommended.

You can also see his first 2 baby teeth -- adorable!
