I'm Late, I'm Late!

I'm late for a very important date :o) As I'm sure you already know, Junior turned five months old just over a week ago. Here is a picture of our little man -

Photobucket

I have to say that this has to be one of my favorite pictures of him so far. Look at that devilish grin and just guess what's going on in that little head of his ;o)

Sigh...I've missed all of you. But there is one thing that I'm lacking of lately. Time. I would love more time. Too bad you couldn't squeeze time like a lemon. LOL!

The past few weeks have been filled with all kinds of firsts for Junior :o) He's starting to sit up on his own, without support. We've seen the beginning of what we believe is crawling, although Junior needs to quickly realize that plowing his immobile front end with his hind legs does not really count as a true crawl. LOL!

On the weekend we started him on rice cereal. He's doing really well and takes the spoon with no problems. And we have...teeth! TWO of them! His first one (bottom left) broke through on September 7 and the other one just yesterday. I can't wait to see that toothy smile :o)

Junior has been using his Jolly Jumper and LOVES it. It's hilarious to watch him jump and spin around, all the while laughing and screeching. He's our evening entertainment ;o)

You might not believe this but I 'have' been stitching! Nia will be very pleased with me because I'm catching up on our Halloween Rules SAL. Hopefully I can post some pictures soon.

Oh my gosh he is adorable! How he has grown...and with teeth, wow!! My two kids didn't get their teeth until they were a year old...lol (that was about 50 years ago...and my mom in law said...the later they get them the longer they'll last...wrong!!) but it sounded good at the time..lol We have missed you too and so glad you are stitching again, and hopefully feeling good too.

Blessings,
Gert

I've been thinking it was about time for a monthly photo and I was rewarded!! Junior is absolutely adorable, Cathey. I think he gets more precious with every photo... The dimple, the blue eyes, the golden hair--so sweet--I sure wish I could hold him in person...

I'm glad to hear you've managed to get some stitching time in--I hope the treatments aren't wearing you out too much... Please know how often I think of you, my sweet friend. Take care now...
