What we've been up to....

The terrible blogger is just checking in with some recent pictures of my favorite little man.  Where does the time go!?  He will be 10 months old in 6 days. 

I left my full time career as an accountant in July and now only work 2-3 days per work for a small apprenticeship program.  My hours are flexible, and my priority of motherhood is encouraged, admired, and understood by my employers.  It's a big financial sacrifice, but it's amazing what you can truly live without.  I'm still detoxing from the "I see it, want it, buy it" syndrome, but the trade-off is immeasurable. 

Connor is such a joy.  He is sleeping better (with us.  Yes, we caved.)  He loves to eat and doesn't turn any foods away.  He especially loves fruit, including apples and bananas.  He's exploring and crawling everywhere and has started standing on his own.  No steps yet!  He has four teeth....two bottom and two top.  He never meets a stranger.  He loves being outside.  He babbles a lot and he says "mamamamamama."  His laughter and smile are intoxicating.  He keeps us very busy, very entertained, and very happy.  I love being his Mama, and I thank God for this beautiful blue-eyed miracle everyday.
