6 Months Old...Here Comes the Chaos!

Want to see something amazing....

video

Yep, that is Stryder crawling!! He is only 6 months old, and it is crazy to see my little guy just doing his thing and crawling all around my apartment! So though it is awesome to watch him grow and learn, the process of baby-proofing my house has now begun!! Everything out of the floor, all wires and whatnot hanging from higher up objects have to go, baby gates up, coffee table removed from living, and on, and on, and on. This can be a little tiring. But, when I sit in the floor and my adorable son crawls to me with his huge grin on his face and reaches his sweet little hands out to me, it makes it all completely worth it. 

I have also found out that Stryder Grey has an ENORMOUS temper! Though most pictures of him, you can see him smiling or laughing....upon occasion, my boy can get mad! When something does not go his way, like say...I take a toy away from him...BAM-He throws a monster fit! He grunts and says "Arrrrr" and yells at me in his baby talk! It's hilarious now, but hopefully he won't keep this up. Talk about a lot of time-out time! ;) 

OH, and I had forgot to mention, Stryder has been sick. :( I took him to the doctor a week ago from today, and his doctor diagnosed him with bronchitis. It's been breaking my heart! But with his antibiotics and the breathing treatments he has had to have, things are looking up. My boy is feeling much better, and now that he can crawl, he's back to his wild child ways! :)

Even through all the snot and slobber,
he is still the prettiest thing in the world.

Jenna Blue Photography.

I am one lucky lady. My awesome sister Jenna is a professional photographer, and not being biased or anything, she is definitely the most amazing one around! So, I figured I would share some of the photos she has taken of myself and my family! :) Check out her facebook page here









See, she is truly brilliant at taking photos! Plus, I get them for free! Told you I was a lucky lady! :D

Double Trouble!

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of babysitting for my wonderful friend Sonya, who also happens to be my ex-sister-in-law and the mother to my niece Ciana. Her little baby boy Neal just turned 2 years old, and he came over bright and early to start a full day of fun with Ashlee, Stryder, and I. 


                                                           










Neal was crazy about Stryder!
I have never seen a little boy as maternal
 and loving to a baby as Neal was to Stryder. 
And Stry absolutely loved Neal!
It was truly a joy getting to watch
 the both of them play and laugh.



But, watching two young children was no walk in the park! Definitely made me realize that I am quite comfortable being a Mommy to only one baby! Changing two diapers, breastfeeding one baby, and making food for the other, keeping them both happy, and making sure they didn't get into anything was definitely tough! How my Momma ever raised 7 children, I will never know! It was a blast though, Stryder loved getting to play with a little kid instead of just his Mom and Dad all the time, which I don't blame him...Neal is a crazy fun little boy! :) It also made Ashlee and I so excited for Stryder to get older! I cannot even begin to explain how anxious I am to hear, "I love you Mommy." from my adorable baby boy. :)
