Wow, it's been a while!

I can't believe it's been so long since my last post! And I can't believe how fast the time is flying! It's SO hard to believe that I have a 7 month old! I really have no excuse for not posting in so long, oh, except maybe for the fact that my child is either attached to my hip at all times or looking at me sobbing because I put him down so I could get attempt to get something done during the day! Ah, yes, we're definitely in that clingy, "I only want mama" phase, and in one sense it's really sweet, but in another, quite exhausting! I find myself trying to sneak out of the room, or if I have to walk through the room that he's in, I try to crawl behind the couch and crazy stuff like that! And I can't ever seem to get past without him catching me! It cracks me up that I get busted by my 7 month old all the time!

It's crazy because I've been saying for like the last 2-3 months that Parker must be teething as he has many of the symptoms of teething: low-grade fever, drooling, chewing on everything, batting at his ears, very broken sleep, fussy, clingy, and on and on. At one point about a month ago, I could even see the tooth, a little sharp white speck, and then the next day, it was gone! How crazy is that?! I was so annoyed, because I thought it would break through and then we'd have some relief until the next one... but here we are, a month later, and still no tooth, but still all the symptoms of teething! Oh well, this too shall pass...

Besides the whole teething thing, Parker's doing great - he's rolling all over the place.. that's how he gets around. He can sit up for a little bit at a time, but eventually face-plants. I think he'll be crawling soon, because he's starting to try, but for now he just kinda scoots. He's definitely all-boy.. even at his young age, he seems kind of rough. Like he'll look at me and then just grab my face with his hands and just pull me to his face and "kiss", (or mouth) me. It's his way of loving on me, but sometimes it kinda hurts - either way, I'll take it! :) He's such a joy, and even on his fussy days, he lights up my day with either a smile, laugh, or some sort of funny expression. I love the boy to death, and I'm so thankful God gave me the gift of Parker-man!

Hey! Great post and glad to see you back around the bloggy world!! I remember those time periods of wondering what in the world was making them fussy... but I promise it gets better - now I get a "My foot hurts right HERE, Mommy."

You'll get there soon enough!! :)
