Bath Time

Look at me go! 2 posts in 2 days! Is anyone else proud of me? Because I'm very proud.

I just had to share my wonderful pictures of William.

Tonight was my first night giving him a bath in the "big boy bath tub" all by myself. I was extremely nervous, and I have to admit, it was not easy. But he has so much fun in the bathtub, that I couldn't put him in the baby tub anymore!

Here are his cute pictures:
This is how he sits in the tub. Because if his legs are together, they get in the way of his splashing!
(Notice how he places his arm to make the picture modest!?!)
He lets you know when he is ready to get out. He will go from splashing and talking, so climbing out of the tub on his own!
"After bath hair". Look at how long it is getting
More "After bath hair"
Ok, there is a reason for my nasty white leg being in the picture!
Whenever William can see my painted toes, he wants to play with them.
So he always tries to roll over to his belly while I get him dressed. This is the only solution
to keep him on his back while I button up the jammies!
Dressed, clean, and ready for bed!

Isn't he the cutest thing ever? I just love bathtime and seeing how happy it makes him. Now we just need to get those cute grip/non-slip things for the tub so he can stop slipping around everywhere!

It has been way too long since my last post, but for some reason, it seems like just yesterday I did my last blog entry.

Life is crazy busy, and I have no idea where the last few months have gone. Everyday seems to fly by with little to no productivity, but lots of growth!

My baby is going to be 8 months old this week, and I have finally come to terms with letting the laundry, dishes, or cleaning pile up so that I can spend hours a day laying on the living room floor cooing and laughing with my baby!


This last week, Sean had the on call schedule for work. This is the most dreaded week of every 2 1/2 months. I swear he gets his calls and the worst times. We finally were scheduled for a Saturday off together, but he got 2 calls that day and was gone for the majority part of the day.
BUT, we did get to go out to walk the mall with friends, followed by William's very first (and definitly not the last) Baskin Robins trip. I'm hoping he takes after me with a "shelf always empty" for chocolate icecream.
Thanks Erica for explaining to me when I was
young that your stomach has shelves. The top one
is the "junk food" shelf, and it NEVER gets full!
Lately it has been so hard to get Sean out of the house, because all he wants to do is relax when he gets home. But when it is nice, and I've been in the house all day, I just want to go PLAY! Walking the mall was a good compromise. I'm just grateful that his friends talked him into getting out and about!

William got his 5th tooth on Friday, and has his 6th about to come in. It makes me sad to see him teething. I can tell that it is painful. But the kid is a tough one, and he is sure enjoying having the teeth to help him eat anything he can get into his mouth!
He has gotten so big, it is scaring me to death. I don't want him to grow up. I already look back and wonder where the last 8 months have gone, and I know in 16 years I'll be wondering the same thing. At least he'll always be my baby, no matter his age!

Here's a few recent pictures:

William can feed himself now.....when he's in the right mood!

He LOVES to play under his excersaucer! It's his favorite "hang out" spot!

Now that's a happy boy! When the tongue comes out, you know he's having a good time!

Playing on the computer with Daddy
(those shoes did not start out there. William took it upon himself
to bring them, one at a time, from the other room!)

Well, there's a short update. I hope that it doesn't take this long to update again. Maybe I'll have to set a goal for every 5 or 10 coupon blog posts I make, I have to do one on here!
