He's 8 Months

Tonight as I sat and rocked Dax in the rocking chair before I laid him down for bed, I felt so sad. He is 8 months old today, and time seems to be going by just too darn fast.

I love the fact that he still lays his head on my shoulder and nuzzles his little face in my neck while I rub his back, and I wonder when he is going to stop doing that. I tell myself I will remember these little moments forever and think it will be so easy, but when I think about Kennedi as a baby, it's is so hard to remember the little things like that.

I get a lump in my throat when I think about him turning 1. I guess it is because it took me so long to get him, and who knows if we'll be blessed with anymore kids.
He is just the sweetest, cutest, little guy I know!

He loves to sit on the floor and play with his toys. If you look close you can see his little bottom teeth coming in.

He's got the army crawl down......he can cruise!

Awwww, that was a sweet post. It's hard to watch your baby get big. Mia was so sweet and cuddly and now she just wants to bite and headbutt.

Oliver is 2 weeks old and I already think time has gone by too quickly!

Your kids are super cute! I remember when you just had Daxton and I can't believe he is already 8months old. It is crazy how time flys bye. So I started looking for baby boy crib bedding online the other day and I can't really see any that I like that much... but I saw your cute bedding in your pictures So I was wondering where you got it or did you make it? I hope you don't think it is rude to ask but I just think its super cute and I just don't really know where to find cute boy things yet.

Good job on making the crib bedding... it is seriously super cute. I just might have to come look at it or maybe have you make me some. You are such a fun crafty person. I have thought about making it, but I don't even know where to start to find material that I like that will go together cute. So once again good job! I am going to be moving pretty soon, so I might call and see if I can come look at it sooner than later. Thanks so much

What a handsome little guy! It does seem like just yesterday that he was born. Your kids are beautiful!! It is hard to not wish that time would slow down while they are small but then when those trying times come you can't help but wish that time would speed up. :)
