Bug A are 8 months old!!!



My Bug A Lug is 8 months!  Oh my precious are the sweetest and most snuggliest Baby Brother in the world!  I get tears when I think how lucky I am that the Lord choose ME to be your Mama!   We prayed and dreamed of what our Baby Brother would be like and YOU Buggers, far exceeded all of our expectations.  You are PERFECT and LOVED!
8 month Stats
Weight: 22 pounds
Clothes Size: 12-18 months
Diaper Size: 5
Shoe Size: 4
You seriously are so much fun!  I wish I had a dollar for everytime someone told me how cute you are!  OR how much you smile!  You must be the happiest baby alive!  All smile and giggles are the time!  Oh and you like to get Mommy's camera and take pictures of yourself!!
You are a sitter upper and a CRAWLER!  You took your first three knees on December 17, 2012 but have only been doing the army crawl since!  It is only a matter of time!  You CAN NOT wait to be up in the action with Daddy and Brother!  This is you trying to crawl...I feellike we may a future lineman on our hands!
You love to EAT!  Unfortunately, your favorite thing to put in your mouth is paper!  If there is a scrap will find it!  You also like squash, carrots, mangos, peaches, gravy, clam chowder, refried beans, rice and to gnaw on bacon, noodles, and graham crackers!  THOUGH...YOU STILL LOVE TO NURSE ALL THE TIME!!
Speaking of eating...YOU GOT TWO TEETH! 
It was quite a dramatic production but you made it through and have your two bottom chompers!!!  The first one popped through on December 16th and second the following day!  I'll be honest, I miss you gumby smile but you sure are putting those teeth to good use already!
You also are WAY more involved in EVERYTHING!  You reach for everything at the dinner have even spilt my coffee a couple times, love to hold the book when we are reading at nap and bedtime, the laptop, put your hands in the air every time I walk by and you want me to pick you up and you love to wave hello and goodbye to everyone!  My favorite is when you wrap your precious little hands around my neck and give me kisses.  It makes me feel like the luckiest Mama in the word.
You are getting to be a much better sleeper. 
 You nap from 10-10:30, 12:30-2:30 and take another quick nap around 5:30 right before dinner.  Then you sleep from 8-7 at night, usually only waking up around 5:00 for a little early breakfast!  Go buggles Go!
You still are only saying Dada...but "talking' all the time!
YOU LOVE TO BE HELD!  And, Mommy and Daddy wouldn't have it any other way.  You will take your short naps in your room, and snuggle with your brother in his room during your long nap
and at night time you both sleep with Mommy and Daddy!  I love feeling you lovins all night and the minute we are out of bed, you and brother are all cuddled together!  IT IS SO CUTE!
You have had a busy month!  You like bouncing in your bouncer
We celebrated Grandpa's birthday
Rough housed with Dad
Got and gave lovins to your VERY best buddy...your big bro Way
Went on a spontanous trip to the beach just the four of us
Enjoyed some sunny weather
And spent a Friday night at John's Incredible pizza playing!
AND ready for Jesus' birthday and Christmas ALL MONTH! It is so awesome celebrating these traditions with you our precious Bug and I am so looking forward to seeing your face on Christmas day!
We went to Mr. and Ms. Kellom's house and made gingerbread houses,
In your Gingerbread shirt by Mini Man Apparel of course!
Played with your nativity set and did some chewing on Jesus
Drove Christmas tree lane and checked out all the lights
in our Jammies

My Mini Man

Mini Man, Mini Monster, Waylon Lawrence, Way Way, Sugar Booger, Cutie Patootie and Toots!

I love my Waylon!

(I got this inspiration from another Mama)
5 Things about my baby!

1.  He has a memory like an elephant.  EVERY mom thinks her child is smart...but seriously....mine is!  He can remember anything and everything!  (including those things you dont want him too).  He has always been ahead and continues to be!  He blows me away how smart he is! LITTLE BRAINIAC (now if I can just get him to understand what NO mean!  hehe)

2.  He has single handily taught me more about this world and life then all other people on this world combined!  He taught me what unconditional love is, what the scariest feeling in the world is when I have to take him to the hospital because he can't breath, how strong I can be when I have had to push myself beyond what I physically possible in order to take care of him, how to be selfless by ALWAYS putting him first, and just how much the Lord loves me by letting me be HIS Mama!!  HE IS MY EVERYTHING AND GOD IS GOOD!!!!
3.  His eczema is terrible!  He constantly has a rash!  His night routine of putting cream on him and getting him ready for bed is AT LEAST 20 minutes.  90% of the time, HE IS ITCHING!  I couldn't even imagine that!  And yet he still has fun, learns, laughs and loves! HE IS SO TOUGH!  I pray daily that his skin will one day heal!!
4.  He is SO protective.  He is totally like his Dada but this is the #1 way that he reminds me of him.  He always worries about me, wonders where I am at, what I am doing and checks on me.  "Mama, did you have a good day?  Mama, are you okay?  Mama, be careful!"  And now, he is like this with Wesson.  Yes, sometimes, he is a little too rough with Wes.  But, you better believe he will not let ANYONE else be.  "Mama, where is Brother?  I want Brother with me!  Good Morning Wesson, did you sleep good?"  He is a wonderful little BIG man!

5.  He has a FABULOUS imagination!  He talks to all his toys, pretends he is the fruits or vegetable when we cut them and yells out "NOOOOOO", can entertain himself and stuffed animals for a long time, and even has a friend named "Kevin" that I am pretty sure in imaginary!

My Mini is perfect!  He has my heart and he makes me so happy!  I am more proud of him than anything else in this whole world! 

I love you more than ANYTHING, Mini!  You are my EVERYTHING!
