General Updates and Whatnots

Once again, it's been awhile since you've heard from me! So, of course, there is a lot to catch you up on. Booboo is now 6 and a half months old. It's amazing how much he seems to grow and change every day. Jon keeps plugging along at work, and being a great dad and husband. Things are getting better for me as Walter gets a MITE better at sleeping and Jon does everything he can to get me as much sleep as possible. And it really helps. Somehow everything is just so much sunnier and easier when you're getting more than 4 hours of sleep a night! I've been having fun experimenting with new recipes and making them my own as I've never really liked following recipes anyway. I've also been taking a knitting class with my mom. We are settling into parenthood and grown-up-hood by getting to bed by 10pm most nights and getting the hang of bragging constantly about every little achievement of "our son" (holy cow!).

For instance: he's got two teeth now, and has been eating some solid food. He rolls all over the floor and gets himself into some sticky situations. It's so funny to see his face when he gets annoyed at the couch for getting in his way. Then he'll either continue to try rolling into the couch (in the hopes that it'll just go away??), or try to chew on it (that's also pretty darn funny) or finally figure out that he should roll the other way. Watching him beats watching tv anyday! He can also sit up better now and is a very talkative, babbly baby. Below are two video's; the first is some footage of our first attempt to feed him solid food. You'll hear on the video that I'm frustrated because he doesn't seem to be swallowing his food. Don't worry, we figured out later that he does much better with food that tastes good, like sweet potatoes and bananas. He definitely doesn't like rice cereal! The second video is one I just took today of him babbling along and sitting up (I apologize for how dark it is in the beginning). If you look closely you can catch a glimpse of his two teeth. He is quite often this loud, especially in church! We always apologize to people and say that he's loud sad and loud happy! Enjoy!

He couldn't possibly be any cuter. And his cute little voice made me grin from ear to ear. The not swallowing thing also made me chuckle - I'd trade that over mid-bite raspberries that blow food bits in every direction within a two-foot radius (what Aislynne does with food she doesn't care for - which, coincidentally, is also rice cereal.)

I was watching these adorable videos with Natalie and then she turned to me and touched me and said "Mine!" I can't help but wonder if she was a little jealous that I was enamored with a little one besides her!
