Girls Wkdnd: Charleston.

This past wknd was spent in the always beautiful, never disappointing city of Charleston.

Me, mom, B, & JuJu loaded up our bags, left the boys at home, & headed south for a much needed & deserved girls trip!

We laughed until we cried.

We drank champagne & bloody mary's.

We ate oysters.

We came. We saw. We conquered.

such sweet, precious memories.

now it's back to reality!

Happy 8 months!

Yesterday Bent turned 8 months...seriously, I may cry at the thought of him being even one more day older.

No check up this month so no stats!

You are in size 9 or 12 month clothes & size 2 or 3 in shoes.

You said "momma" for the first time this month.

Your tricks of the month include clapping & the cutest little wiggle dance when music comes on.

You eat a baby food container for breakfast, lunch, & dinner + an afternoon snack of puffs.
You love to sample whatever me & Daddy are eating, which has been fun to watch your reaction to certain foods!

You go to sleep between 7:30 & 8 to 6:30.

You take an afternoon nap some days [and those days are days I am very thankful for].
*note: as a baby I never napped, as my mom as lovingly reminded me of, so Bent gets it honest.

You love your jumper, walker, & to just play with your toys on the floor.

You love to sit in high chairs, thus, you are so much fun to go out to eat with!

{in the picture below, Bent saw himself in the oven reflection & carried on a full conversation. precious + hilarious}

one night you literally bounced yourself to sleep!

You are such a trooper & go to work with me most days...we have quite the play room in my office!

You still love bath time!

Jake Jr.

Another month older, I cannot believe it.

You are the sweetest little boy on the planet.

Your cuddles make bad days good & good days greater.

We love you, we love you, we love you.

Happy 7 months!

Happy 7 months Bent!
{officially on 12/27/12}

....okay so I am almost an entire month late on this but Decemeber & January have literally zoomed by.

...and because I am almost an entire month late, I'll just do a quick run through!

No check up this month so no official measurements.

Month 7 brought the celebration of your first Christmas!
You must have been a good boy because Santa made a stop by the Baker annual PJ party!

Month 7 was all about playing and having fun.
Here's some snap shots from our December....

Every month goes by faster than the one before it.

Your giggles are heaven sent.

You continue to bring so much joy & love into mine & your Daddy's life.

We love you, we love you, we love you.
