Typical 2

Since I last posted, just a couple days ago, I've been thinking a lot about me becoming that stereotype of a Mom.  I didn't really like it.  But, after more consideration I decided it's just because that is what consumes my life.  I wake up at 6 or 7 every day and if you ask anyone who knows me, that is not something I would EVER do before I had a child.  I spend my days wiping, changing, holding, rocking, tickling, FEEDING, and singing the few children's songs that I know.  And, some days I am a little frustrated (not gonna lie).  Mostly with the communication barrier we have between us.  Harper doesn't really cry too often but when he does I wish he could just tell me what the problem is, it would be much easier to fix.  He has been teething lately so the whining has increased some and he doesn't sleep as sound as usual.  I hope it ends soon because I am more accustomed to my happy baby.  

I've always heard of those Moms who talk to their husband in a baby voice when they get home from work.  Well, I haven't gone as far as that yet but I feel it's very close.  Johnny has been working NON-STOP the past month or so and so the few hours that he is home it is nice to have a real adult conversation (well, if he isn't too absorbed into his phone haha).  I am so happy he enjoys his work.  I don't think he's ever come home upset or unhappy.  

So, back to what I was saying.  I have changed.  There are things I wouldn't have ever done before that I am doing now.  My life has re-arranged and I am happy that it has.  My family is small but it has all of my attention.  Conversation may be a little boring with me, sorry, just a new phase of life that has frankly opened my eyes to a bigger world.  Kind of ironic.  I don't think until you are blessed with a child do you really fully understand why parents are the way they are, or why "typical" isn't so bad - at least, I didn't.

Sorry, I have become the typical Mom Blogger.... all I do is talk about my kid.  But, with a face like this, how could I not?  He's 6 months now, yes, half of a year has gone by.  Wow.  I need to baby proof our house pretty soon, he's almost to the crawling stage.  I love being a Mom.  Here are a few things we've done lately.  

Played with Dad.

Practiced sitting by ourselves.

Looked for Dad after his run at the Ogden Half Marathon.

Got a new play center that sometimes wears us out.

Tried some new real food.  I think this time was carrots.

Fed some ducks and hung out with our friend, Olivia, at the park.

Learned to swing!

And found out that we LOVE it!

OH AND Harper's first tooth decided to pop up a few days ago so he is a new member of the teeth club.    :)  He would love to gnaw on your knuckle for you.
