i can't believe it, but brennan is 7 months old. amazing jackie came by for a visit while she was in town and brought her talents with her. what an amazing photographer she is...such a treat for us! dad and sandie, thanks for the outfit little B in is. i am in love with this little boy. my little b makes me laugh one minute and cry the next. today he whined more than he made any other noises. we've started sign language, as of two days ago, and the ones he responds to with most emotion are "milk" and "eat." when i do the "milk" sign he pumps his arms and legs and starts breathing heavily. so adorable. i think the most frustrating part about the whining (other than the actual noise of the whining) is knowing that he is trying to tell me something, but not knowing what that something is. most of the time i'm realizing that he just needs a new toy, a trip outside (or a walk around target), or play time with mom. he doesn't have the strength to crawl yet, so when he wants something out of reach he rolls onto his stomach, laying there to cry when he gets frustrated. did i teach him this trait?? haha. i LOVE that he is not mobile. let me repeat myself. i LOVE that he is not mobile. however, i am excited for him to learn a new way to discover the world. it is so fun to watch him get excited about a new toy or person. i cherish my free time during his naps, but find myself excited for him to wake up as well. sleep my little angel. sean and i get so excited before we got to bed and march into his room in a tip-toe fashion to see the little dear fast alseep, arms out, and hurley monkey (pics up soon for all of you to meet him) cuddled up in our deary's arms. i can't help but want more! being a mom is my favorite thing i've ever done. i LOVE my life!
