First Tooth!


Since I had such a cranky post yesterday, I figured today I would share some of the cuteness.  So here's what's going on with my two loveys:

Cat's getting his first tooth!

It's finally busted through the gumline.  He is soooooo much happier.  He'd been really fussy and crabby and angry and there were moments where I was waiting for him to start shaking his fist at me and start screaming, "NEIN NEIN NEIN!" a la his brother, but thankfully, that hasn't happened.

He's so cute though, isn't he?  I have to admit, I love the six month old stage.  He's still little and snuggly, but so many new things are happening.  He's starting to try to figure out how to crawl--he hasn't quite gotten in yet, but he sometimes manages to get his rear end in the air, and other times he can get himself up on his arms, God help me.  I guess I'm going to have to start thinking about the repercussions of that--but maybe I'll just allow myself a little more denial first:)

Speaking of loveys, Cat has one--unlike Bug, who preferred to use me as his comfort object.  He has gotten very attached to a stuffed lion that his great-aunt Cindy got for him, and it's so cute to see the way his face lights up when I hand it to him.

In Bug news, the boy never ceases to amaze.  First off, he's figured out how to open the front door.  He's figured out how to get the doorknob cover off, unlock the door, and walk outside.  The first time he did that I nearly had a heart attack.  As a result, we've had to get chain locks for the front and back doors.

Oh, and he won't drink milk anymore ::eyeroll::  He will eat cheese, and yogurt, and cottage cheese, so as long as he consumes a few servings of those during the day I am okay with it, but it's so frustrating!  This is the kid who used to adore milk!  And now, all I get is, "NO WANT!"

He is totally into bubbles, as you can see from the picture.  We've been spending a lot of time outdoors this summer:  going for walks, going to the park, painting outdoors, blowing bubbles...you name it!  I am a firm believer that children should be outside as much as possible, and Bug is loving every minute of it.

We have a busy week this week--lots of playdates and catching up with old friends, and I'm going to go out with my girlfriends a couple of times.  I'm so grateful that we have found such a great group of families up here to hang out with!  I love knowing that Bug and Cat will have all these wonderful friends, and I am so grateful for all of my mom friends.  You ladies rock!
