Holy hannah, it has been a couple of crazy months around our house! Kyler boy has been growing so much. He is now oozing with personality and it has been so much fun watching him learn new tricks and skills and see his personality develop. I never posted his 6 or 7 month pictures, so here's the pictures from the last 3 months.
He is moving like crazy which has made taking pictures with his monthly sign a little difficult because he always wants to just play with the paper.
He is one determined little army crawler. He will crawl over our legs just to get to the laptop or ipad. It is so fun watching him move, but now he is into everything!! We have some major baby proofing to do around our house. The last few days he's started getting up on his hands and knees and rocking back and forth so I can't imagine it will be long before he figures out how to crawl for real. He's also started standing by himself on the couch. I can't believe my baby is growing so fast!
He still puts EVERYTHING in his mouth and the last few days he's been chewing on the table whenever I feed him baby food.
So he usually looks like this by the end of a meal.
He has been such a good eater though. He loves everything we give him, even all his veggies! (He does not get that from me!!)
Lately he's been making the same cheerio face that he made when he was a newborn.
It melted my heart then and it melts my heart now! The other day I started laughing at something he was doing and he started laughing back at me, it was seriously adorable.
Now that Rexburg finally has decent weather again we have been busting out the stroller a lot! Kyler and I have been going on a lot of walks enjoying the sunshine! Occasionally Kyle gets to join us and I love spending that time with my boys.
I started my 10th and final semester this week!! It is my 7th semester in a row now in 2 years and I am so excited for graduation to come. I only have two classes and an internship. I got an internship working for Eastern Idaho Public Health. They have a program called Fit and Fall Proof Program which helps improve fitness for older adults in order to help prevent falls and reduce injuries that occur from falling. So I will be teaching fitness classes at senior and community centers in Rigby, Ririe, Idaho Falls, and Rexburg. I am so excited! I hated working with the elderly when I was in high school, but now I love interacting with them. I team teach the classes with two other people and we start next week.
Janae and Reggie (Kyle's sister and brother-in-law) had their baby this week!!! He is so tiny and precious. Kyle and I have been reminiscing about when Kyler was first born since they had their baby. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. I guess we just kept waking up day after day doing the same thing day after day and now I have an 8 month old! I was telling Kyle how I love how tiny and sweet newborns are, but I love this stage so much more. Seeing Janae just starting out as a new momma makes me realize how much I love where I am at. I love that Kyler sleeps through the night, I love that it doesn't feel like I'm preparing for battle just to take Kyler to the store, and I love that I get rewarded with smiles, giggles, and love from Kyler in return for playing with him, feeding him, and loving him. I feel comfortable and confident in my role as a mother and I'm grateful to be in this stage of the mommahood. This stage has its own struggles and I know that eventually I'll be back at the start with future children, but right now I am trying to enjoy where I'm at and spending as much time loving this sweet boy as possible!
How do they grow so fast!
