Leaps and Bounds

Avery is at a stage where things happen in leaps and bounds. The day after the fair I went in to his room and he was sitting up in his bed. Now Avery has been sitting up for a really long time. My profile picture was taken while we were still on maternity leave and he had great head control. I think the bumbo helped, but he was sitting up for a long time. This was different, no one sat him up. He sat him up.

One week later I went in to his room to find him standing up peering through the rails of his baby bed. Yep, standing! The next morning, I sat him down in his room and he took off crawling. Wowser.

Last week was his first week of crawling at school and he got 3 "accident" reports. One was for a scratch, but the other two were for head bumps. He has a nice green bruise on his forehead.

My baby is gone! By 8 months old, he is grown. It was also picture day at his school. I can't wait to see the pictures!!

Ginger made us these (below), and we love them.
Doesn't Ginger rock??

Excuse Me While I Sit Up....

Sunday morning I hear Mr. Sweetie Pants moving around, so I do what I always do.... I dash in there to grab up that beautiful boy and love on him. What? You would do something different?

When I get to his room do I get a shock! There is Avery sitting up, and not only is he sitting up, he is trying to pull up on the bed. Now he's been able to sit up on his own for a while, and he has been pulling up on everything for a couple of weeks, but he has never sat up from a lying position.

This boy does not fool around. He goes straight for the finish line. "Mommy, I am up, and if its all the same to you, I'm just gonna climb on out of this bed." I was so proud and immediately it occurred to me, we gotta lower this bed PRONTO. Two weeks shy of 8 months old and Avery's bed is now at the bottom.

I know this isn't Earth shattering stuff, but I assure you it rocked my little world. Big Time. My boy isn't a baby any more. I might as well get him a key made for the Jeep. He's practically dating!

Just this week Miss Katy told me that he had to be separated from Kathleen because they jabber too much at nap time. What a flirt!
