Where oh where can my baby be?

Looks up. Today is my baby's last "month birthday." If I am being honest I am kind of sad about it. I cannot believe how fast this year has flown by. Everyone tells you how quickly it goes by, but you cannot truly understand it until you are living it.

It is pretty much a fact I don't have a baby anymore. He has been walking for almost 3 weeks. When I say walking, I mean walking. As in every where. He is also running now. He did the cute little baby waddle for all of 30 minutes (and this is not much of an stretch!) He follows me around the house and plays hide and go seek in the bedrooms by opening shutting door. He doesn't use the door knobs of course but he shuts it just enough that he can get his chubby little fingers to pry it back open.

He has not had a bottle in three days. He still drinks plenty of formula in a sippy cup throughout the day. He feeds every meal to himself with the exception of his morning yogurt. He says Momma, Dada, up, done, and yeah, although not on a regular basis yet. He is much more a walker than a talker. He is wearing 12 month clothes, but the silly boy can still fit is some 6-9 month onsies. I know he is a "big" boy, but he really is long and skinny.

He loves to give hugs and kisses. He has a monkey he carries around kissing all day. He LOVES to flirt by playing shy. He tucks his head into my chest and batts his eye lashes. He will not to go people he doesn't know well. People (family) always try to force him to come to them when he doesn't know who they are. I almost punched Claytons aunt the other day. It was the first time she had seen Brock in like 9 months. She literally tried prying him out of my arms. He was clinging to me and looked at me with the most terrified look in his eyes. I am sorry but no! I am not an overly protective momma, but I will not force him to go to someone he considers a stranger. .He is a momma's boy through and through. There are times he actually gets mad when Clayton gets him in the morning and not me. I think it upset Clayton and little, but I assured him the next one will more than likely be a daddy's boy/girl.

He is just a sweet natured little guy. He was even sharing the other day! I was very impressed.

My heart has grown by 100% in this last year. I am so blessed.

Birthday invitations

I ordered Brock's first birthday invitations today! I am excited to be planning his first birthday party, but sad at the same time. He has grown up so quickly. As a side note, yes, I know Little is misspelled, this is just the proof. It will not be printed that way. :o)

Prayers for Stellan

I know many of you probably read MckMamma's blog, but if you don't, could you please visit there this morning and lift up her little Stellan? He was admitted to the hospital last night with an increased heart rate, and this sweet little 4 month boy needs our prayers. The doctors need to get his heart rate to slow from the dangerously high rate it has been at for most of the night. Please check on the updates and pray for this baby.

Not me Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Not me Monday is a great way to prove we are not all super mom! Come on, you know your not! Here are some things I would never do!

I would never stay up until 1:30 in the morning reading Harry Potter and The Half Blooded Prince. Actually having to talk myself into going to sleep, and not immediately picking up Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.
Nope, not me.

Nor would I get my sons 1 year pictures taken when he is only 10 1/2 months old, and let him dig into a big cake.

Nope, not me.

Adding to that I would never expect said baby to come home and take a nap right after devouring said cake...

Nope, not me.

That felt nice! This may be a common thing around here!

Just one.

My happy pirate!


For now...

Upgraded to Pro status!

So apparently Brock made a liar out of me. I can officially call Brock a pro walker. He has been all over our house today. He'll walk to one place, turn around and walk to another. He has even caught is balance mid walk and kept going!
It is bitter sweet for me. I cannot believe how big he is, and how fast he has grown up. At the same time I am so unbelievably proud of him. There is nothing like watching your baby grow and flourish. He is amazing, and SO proud of himself. It is pretty cute to watch him.

On another note. I think I have pink eye. :o( I got sent home from work today. I have never had pink eye before and I really hope it doesn't turn out to be it...I really need to work this weekend!

Walking!

Get ready to turn your head sideways and watch my little man walk! He walked between me and daddy for about 30 minutes, and he has walked by himself a little bit today. I wouldn't call him a pro yet, but almost!
