Two in one day?!

This morning Pumpkin spoke her first word, "Mama"! I was blown away. Then about 5 mins later she blurted out, "dada"! Two of her first words in one whole day. It has absolutely made my year. I feel honored that her first word was Mama. So honored that I could cry thinking about it!

They grow up fast, eh?

When you're pregnant, people tell you to cherish the time you have. I thought, "Sure, but I cannot wait to hold my baby!". And before I knew it I was a mom. Then they tell you to cherish every moment because they grow up fast. I thought, "Yeah, they probably do, but time won't past that fast".

A friend of mine had her baby girl 5 weeks early; 4 lbs! Today is her shower so I went through Pumpkin's old clothes to give to her. We were very unprepared for a preemie ourselves, so I know how stressful it can be to have to buy more clothes (which they will more than likely grow out of in a few weeks) and diapers. As I was going through everything I just could not believe that Pumpkin once fit into those tiny doll clothes. She is still small for her age, still wearing 3-6 clothing (although soon she'll have to upgrade!). But it made me realize how fast 8 months has FLOWN by. We are four months away from her 1 year birthday!

If I could give any new Mom one piece of advice it would be to cherish every moment, good or bad, because they fly by. Oh, and to sleep when you can!

Hello, Teething!

Saturday, August 8th, I noticed Pumpkin was sticking her tongue out oddly; I didn't think anything of it. After church on Sunday Pumpkin and I sat down to eat avocado and grilled chicken. I was checking to see if she had any left over food in her mouth and something scraped my finger. I pryed open my her mouth and there it was. A tiny little nub of a tooth coming up through her gum. I am one proud Mama!

Of course I ran to her baby book and recorded it.

I have yet to get a picture, but you better believe I'll make a blog post just for it!
