In just about one week you are going to be eight months old. It’s amazing how quickly time is passing by.
You’ve been mastering the army crawl for the last couple of weeks and as each day passes you’ve started to test your boundaries more and more. We knew you’d be crawling any day now, and you did exactly that earlier this week.
Watching you have these major milestones right before our eyes is amazing. It seems like each day you’re learning something new or testing out where you can crawl in our apartment. It used to be the the living room was your safe area, but you’ve left that idea in the dust at this point and have become quite the explorer.
I love that you’re growing and all that jazz, but moments like the one below are still at the top of my list.
In the photo you and I were laying on the bed doing absolutely nothing. And what makes this moment so great is that you hardly ever like to sit still. But when you do, it’s an amazing moment.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy laying on the floor staring at a mirror with you while you kiss it and do raspberries, but the calm moments are the greatest.
As I sit here and type, I’ve started thinking about the fact that I don’t know that I have a single photo like this with my dad. That’s just so strange.
The lack of photos from my childhood is one of the reasons I’ve been taking so many of you. At the same time, there have been many moments that I’ve put my phone or camera down so that I can simply take in the moment with you. Granted, with my camera, when I put it down it seems to become one of your new favorite toys. Your drool does a number on the lens. 🙂
We’re going to have lots of fun together, but I’ll certainly be on the lookout for moments like this.
