This past month was pretty rough--illnesses (yucky stomach bug), major tiredness (mostly due to my sweet baby girl not sleeping--Read this as Me not sleeping either--), long stretches of days when my husband had to work, etc. etc. Just a tough time. Hopefully we're past all that!
Anyway, lots of cool things happened during that time too. Our Katie got three teeth (2 on the bottom, 1 on top), she learned how to roll over both ways, she started crawling and pulling herself up, waving, clapping. It's crazy! She's growing and changing everyday and I totally feel like I'm missing it because I'm either trying to get dinner on the table or I'm trying to calm down Sterling Alexander when Kate starts getting into his toys ("Move her Mom!!!) or I'm trying to spend a minute of quality time with my husband (It's okay to hide in the closet to try and have a conversation together, right?). Thank goodness for cameras and pictures!
I keep trying to remind myself to enjoy this time. Especially when my son asks me, like he did today, to sit next to him on the couch during the dinner rush to read to him. So stinking sweet! It would have been so easy to put him off, but then I stopped and thought about what life is going to be like in a few years..... Yeah, I'll be lucky if I get a "Hi mom" let alone a chance to really spend some quality time with him. So, I figured I better take advantage of it while I've got it. Who cares if every room of the house has toys and dirty clothes and dishes in it!! RIGHT NOW I've got a little boy who loves me and wants all my attention. I better cherish this time, DARN IT!, even if it did mean that we ate dinner at 9:30 PM!
Here's some pictures of Kate in her ever changing state! Plus, you be the judge....Kate has two holiday dresses and I'm not sure which one to have her Christmas pictures taken in. Let me know which one you think is better! Thanks!
