Being Silly

The other day we were watching a movie and Christian was playing with his toys. We look up and he's climbing in his toy box. He sat there for about 5 minutes playing with different toys, mostly his trucks. He didn't get out until he accidentally dropped his truck overboard. It was quite entertaining to watch him. I guess it's easier to reach the toys when you are right in there with them.

On a not so fun note...Christian is sprouting teeth again. His 1 year molars are emerging all at once. Yay! He's been sick because of it I think. Or he's just sick. So, on top of a really cranky teething baby, he's throwing up and won't eat. I had to stay home with him today because of it. Yeah for staying home! Boo for being cooped up with a sick baby!


I know you all have been long awaiting this here video. I am SUPER sorry about the VERY poor quality. Someone (Dave) lost the charger to the video camera and so I took this on the digital camera a week ago. It's better than nothing I guess. Oh..and apparently Christian's room wasn't very clean that day either. Oops! So here it is...the proof that he really does walk. In fact..he walks everywhere now. Such a big boy!

Editor's note: I don't know why he loves that little broom so much, but he does. He carries it all over the house and sweeps things with it. He's my little helper.

Memory Lane

I was looking through some old pictures and I realized that Christian has had a few different hair styles in his short life. And I can't believe how much he has changed as he has gotten older. I can't believe when I brought him home he weighed in at a whopping 5lbs 5oz and 18.5" long. He wore preemie diapers and preemie clothes. Now he is 22 lbs and 30.5" and wears size 3 diapers and 12 months clothes. He has 8 teeth and walks everywhere. What a growing boy! I love that he walks now and I love to hear him babble on and on like we are having an intelligent conversation. I can't wait until he talks to me. We'll have some good chats! I have a feeling he'll be one of those kids that never shuts up though. Oh well...better than being silent I guess. I hope you enjoy my trip down memory lane. Sometimes it's hard to believe he is already 13 months.

This is the original...just born 3 days ago hairdo.

This is the one month old...Daddy made me do it and I don't like it hairdo.

Here is the 2 months old..thinning hair look.

Christian's Big News!

The little monster walks now! He walks, turns corners, stops to pick up a toy or cup and keeps walking. Who knew he had it in him? Sadly, I have not been in blogging mode and have no pictures or video of this new skill. My friend got a video of it at her house so I will have to beg to get a copy I suppose. Hopefully we will have a video up soon. It's pretty exciting stuff (or maybe it's just exciting to me)!
