My baby can walk?

34

My baby can walk. My baby can walk. If I keep saying it, maybe it will sink in....My baby can walk. Nope, not working. Ok, maybe it would be slightly more accurate to say, "My baby can take a few steps before crashing to the floor. " Regardless of how you put it, steps were taken and I know that there are many more to come. He will be running circles around me by his first birthday. (sigh)
Baby in a bag!!! I love this fun jammy bag!

Aiden and his favorite dog, Joey. That dog is an angel! He puts up with some major torture!

It's funny because with your first baby, you are in such a rush for them to roll over and then crawl and then stand and then walk. You just want them to move right along and learn all of these wonderful things and to grow up. Well, been there, done that! I now know that each step forward is a step towards independence and a step away from mommy. I have witnessed it first hand. They crawl and walk and then they start talking. Pretty soon it's time to start kindergarten and then sleepovers at friends houses...eventually high school and then driving and college!!! I might not be that far along yet, but I'm no dumby! I know that it's coming.



Seriously!?! This kid is getting into everything!


Well, as this little superbaby of ours continues to grow, his personality is really starting to shine. He is such a happy baby most of the time, but has started to master the art of shrieking when he's not getting his way. He is also into EVERYTHING!!!!! He is constantly chewing on things, including me! He is turning into quite the little biter! I have been bitten on my leg, elbow, nose and toes. He is kind of like a little puppy! This has been magnified by the steroids that he has had to take because of a recent bout with pneumonia. He has been very clingy and uncharacteristically cranky. This has just been made worse from his medications. It was about 10 at night and he was really hyper. He was crawling around and seemed happy for the first time that day. I figured he could just crawl around and burn off some energy before I put him into bed. I looked over at him and saw that he was eating something. No big surprise there, since he is always shoving something into his mouth. But as I was looking at him, I couldn't figure out what it was that he was eating. As I crossed the room to take it off of him, I noticed the poopy diaper that I had just changed sitting beside him...unwrapped and now empty!!! He was eating his own POOP!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I can honestly say that, well...that was a first even for someone with as many kids as I have! I screamed and ran over and took it off of him. I scrubbed his face, mouth, hands and teeth with a baby wipe and then a washcloth and then his toothbrush. (Which I threw away!) I just looked around at everyone. They were all just looking at me with their mouths hanging open. Apparently this was a first for them too. Jake just shook his head and said, "I thought that it was a no-bake cookie?!" Ummm...eeewwww! As if that made it ok?!


But look at his sweet little face! How can you not just melt when you look at him? Poop and all! He has made it quite clear that we have quite an adventure ahead of us with him and I couldn't be happier!

Okay, a) I have a biter as well. And those teeth mean business!

And b) that is so disgusting. Poop is not okay, not even as a sometimes food.
