My Baby's growing up!

I just love this little man!! This month Conner has really progressed a lot! Some of the new things that have gone on are:
  • Crawling - !! I think the day after I wrote my last post saying that Conner wasn't going to ever crawl he started to army crawl. While he is still not up on all fours crawling he has gotten a lot quicker.
  • Hair cut - this little guy was getting a little baby mullet and we finally bit the bullet and trimmed around the ears and top a little. It made me sad
  • Waves bye bye - Conner has started to wave bye bye to people. He's a stinker a lot of times and won't perform his tricks for people but he does it for us.
  • Sign language - I've been working on baby sign language with him and it seems that the sign for milk has now become his sign for wanting something. It's a work in progress :)
This past week I started working a lot more regularly. I work M-Th 9:00-2:00. While I know this isn't much, it has been hard for me to be away from my little pal. While I want to be home with my boy I feel like this was an answer to our prayers and everything just fell into place. My work considerably raised my pay, one of my best friends from high school who is awesome with kids and is probably one of the few people I would trust with Conner is able to tend him, and I could pick whatever hours worked best for Conner's schedule. With Mark in graduate school we are trying to save up as much money as we can to buy a house and pay for graduate tuition. My favorite thing in the world is to come home to Conner and see his huge smile and get a hug and a kiss from him.
