21 Weeks

This week has been a little interesting. We've been putting him down around 10-10:30pm. He's been a pretty good sleeper for a while now, so he usually wakes up around 9:00am. For some reason, we put him down at regular time, but for the past two mornings he hasn't woken up since 11:00am. Yes, I said 11:00am. And to top it off, he still goes down for his morning nap about two hours after he wakes up for 2-3 hours. I don't know if he's having a growth spurt, or all of the moving he's doing is making him exhausted, but I'm not going to complain!

I've mentioned before that Nixon is a mover! I was in the kitchen, doing the dishes and I put him in front of the laptop to watch Baby Einstein (which he actually really likes!) I look back 3 minutes later and I couldn't see him. I went around the counter and there he was. Snuggled right into our moving boxes. Yes, I said moving boxes. That will be it's own post!
I also mentioned he's starting to scoot! Here's a couple pictures from my phone (he doesn't really perform when I have my camera out). He's starting to get on all fours! I love the lunging picture on the left. It really shows the action. ;)
One afternoon, during his afternoon nap, I heard him scurrying. He wasn't crying or even whining, so I thought, "I'm just going to let him hang out until he starts getting fussy." I started hearing pounding. I cracked open and found this. He had turned himself all the way around and had his feet up on the edge just hanging out and kicking the side of his crib. I could not stop laughing. It was as if this was his office and he had his feet up on the desk. He then got his arms through and just kind of hung it out there for a while. No joke, that probably lasted a good 30 minutes. What can I say, he's a pretty content kid!

20 Weeks

Nixon is 20 weeks and the happiest boy! He has had a few weird nights where he wakes up around 11:30-12:00 at night for no reason really. But last night he was back to his old fantastic sleeping self, and woke up right on cue at 9:00am.

He's got the biggest full mouth grin and we can't get enough of it!
He rolling around, literally, all over our living room/dining room, and today his ended up rolling himself up in his blanket. He thought he was pretty funny! He so fun to watch, and I'm so grateful that I get to be home and watch it all unfold before my eyes.

September 11th

I was in sixth grade and I was sitting in Mrs. Howard's homeroom class. The news was on and they kept replaying two buildings being hit by planes. I had no idea what those buildings were, and I don't think I fully grasped what was going on. Little did I know, I was watching history unfold right before my eyes, and it is something I will never forget. 

I saw this quote, and I loved how powerful the message is.
