On the go....

We've been SO busy the past couple weeks. So much has been going on... I've been taking lots of pictures, but haven't had time to stop and 'document' all of it! Ha...
There's lots to share from the past couple weeks, but the biggest thing going on in our house right now is that little missy is no longer immobile.

She has been pushing up on all fours for a few weeks now, so we knew it was coming soon... but I was holding it off as long as we could. I kept her strapped in her bouncy seat or on my hip most of the day everyday just soaking up her last little bit of "stillness"....and trying my hardest to delay this latest milestone as long as I could!

I knew after spending a few days with her BFF, Allie Claire (who's 2 months her senior and who is an experienced crawler), baby sister was going to want to be a 'big girl', too... She started on the Friday night that we got home from the beach. Just a few little crawls and then some big leaps forward. By Sunday night, she was up to 3 or 4 crawls... Now, 10 days later, she's a full blown crawler... and I am pretty sure I am going to have to get some sort of heart medication... she wants to go straight for our fireplace---needless to say, she's been hearing the words, "no-no" a whole lot this week! We moved our coffee table out of our living room, so she'd have a wide open space to crawl and play, and also in hopes of preventing yours truly from having a heart attack when she gets too close to it....

Here's a little video I took this morning, so yall could see it... Do yall hate hearing yourself talk as much as I do? I also feel the need to clarify that I don't really usually sound like this (I don't think), unless I am talking to persons under the age of 2)...


Happy Monday!

She's big time these days for sure! I'm so proud of her getting with some crawling! I can hardly wait to see the girls crawling one right after the other in "a pack"..I have no idea what we're going to do with them once they start walking. Gates! Gates! Gates!
And heart medications (:

By the way, you do sound like that...

She is so sweet. I have missed reading your post and your post prior to this one was so sweet and brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing about Cooper, I am sure that could not have been easy for you. You are such an inspiration and display such a courage and stong faith that I admire. Thank you for sharing your heart with us. God bless you sweet friend!

Aw, my little boy is almost 6 months old and he's already pushing up on all fours and rocking.

Becky said...

I am amazed at how fast she is growing... should she be crawling already? That is PRECIOUS!!! miss you... love you all ...

Hey, we did sleep kinda funny!! But, we were physically and emotionally exhausted! Since then we have had our air conditioning fan break and the kitchen sink back up...grrrr!! Too much for the first week!

I just want you to know that I think about you often. I have a Cooper that turns four Sept 9th and so your little Cooper is often on my mind. I am lifting you and your family up in prayer and it you ever want to chat please shoot me an email. I guess I just feel connected to you because we both had our Cooper a month apart. I apologize if I am making you uncomfortable, I just want to send you big cyber hug!

I love it too, Annie she is so adorable we could just eat her up. One a side note, I HATE hearing my own voice. If someone is playing a message from me I make them delete it, so I do not have to hear it. Worst thing.
