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!


  1. Love it all!! Kathleen is a lucky girl :) Yes, they look so little at the bottom setting on the crib!!! I felt guilty until she figured out how to stand using the bumper and look out the slats, now it's a party for all!!

  2. I somehow missed this last week! Congrats, Avery! Woohoo! And what a cute picture!
