I really should be working and getting caught back up, but I really just want to be blogging. I haven’t written anything in over a week and it is about to drive me nuts. I didn’t realize just how much I missed it until today when I actually sat down in front of a computer again. So, I figured I could just write something short and sweet and get it out of my system for a little bit. Plus, I really wanted to share some exciting new developments.
Zachary turned 6 months old yesterday. Can you believe it? Half a year has already raced by. I just cannot believe how quickly the time goes when you have children. Three days before he hit that 6-month mark (Friday) he said his first word, which of course was "dada". His daddy was awfully proud but I had to bring him down a little when I told him that most babies do say that first and that Zach most likely has no idea what it actually means. It is still pretty exciting anyway. Then, on Christmas Eve as we were sitting in church I discovered that he has two little teeth just about ready to pop through the gums. My boobs are definitely not looking forward to the teeth, but I am looking forward to him being able to eat some real food (that baby food is expensive!) once he gets a couple more teeth in. Also, he is really close to being able to sit up by himself. As long as he has a toy or something he is interested in he will sit up. If he doesn’t have a distraction, he flops right over. It is kind of funny to watch.
Anyway, there is my baby update. I was just dying to get that out. Now that you all have been informed, I will go back to work. Hopefully tomorrow I will have pictures.
