Crawling, Mohawks and Mother's Day

In my last post I announced that Christian is crawling with ease. It didn't take long for him to figure out how to crawl faster, turn corners and find the dog food. Yumm!! I thought Jake would protect his food a little more, but he just steps back and lets Christian try some.

Also, because of his new crawling talents and need to explore every nook and cranny, we purchased some jail bars aka a baby gate. We got the kind that screws into the wall so we don't have to worry as much about him or Jake or Merlin knocking the gate down and getting hurt or opening a pathway to the stairs. I think we need another one for the hallway. I have a feeling this will be a very good investment. It's already been helpful.

It also didn't take long for Christian to start pulling himself up. He truly likes this new talent and practices often. He isn't great at it yet and it is still a struggle for him, but he finds great joy in standing all by himself.

And because it is Mother's Day and I am the mother, I dressed Christian up for church and gave him a nice mohawk..ok..really it is a fohawk. He wasn't so sure of it at first, but I think he's warming up to the idea.

Here Christian is practicing to be a model. This is his "pensive" pose.
We are having so much fun watching him grow and learn new things. I can't believe how fast he is growing. He already has 2 teeth on bottom and has 4 teeth coming through on top. Only 1 hasn't cut through yet. And just yesterday I noticed 2 more teeth swelling up on the bottom. I can't believe he'll have 8 teeth soon. He's turning into a little person.

I am so happy to be a mother and be given the responsibility of raising one of Heavenly Father's children. We have truly been blessed with a good baby. And he's pretty cute too!

Happy Mother's Day! Christian is so cute! I can't believe how fast he is growing and how much stuff he can all ready do. I know Matthew was supposed to be slower but wow! I will send you an email soon on blog design. I just found it off someone else's blog. There are ways to design it yourself or there are other websites with pre made blog designs. It's fairly easy but Joe helps a lot too.

I do love this kid. I'm so happy that I get to see him grow up with all the pictures. It makes it easier to be away. Thanks.
