I know it's been a while since I've posted when I have Brad asking me to post more often...but if you knew how our life has been in the past few months you may understand a little bit as to why I've been short on time...
Well to begin, we are both now very busy chasing our little crawler around. Not too long after Christmas, Mitchell began pulling up on things and standing. Brad and I were convinced that he would walk before he crawled because he still showed no interest in crawling. Well, we were wrong. Just over seven months old, Mitchell decided he wanted to crawl and he took off! Needless to say, we have seen alot of his backside since! He is all over the place now. Now that he's nine months, he's walking around holding on to things and beginning to stand on his own. It's only a matter of time before he decides he's ready to take off running!
Mitchell has also gotten in four more teeth. He now has his top two teeth and four on the bottom, for a total of six little chompers. And believe us when we say he is definitely learning how to use them! At his 9 month appointment last week, Dr. Tara also informed us that his bottom molars were starting to come in along with another top back tooth. I guess there is no rest for teething in this house!
As for Brad and myself, we have been very busy completing the duplex remodel. Brad finished up at the end of January and we were able to rent it shortly thereafter. It was such a relief to finally get that project finished and hopefully renters will be able to enjoy it for years to come.
I will try to continue to post several pictures, but I am starting to realize that in all of this chaos that is now our lives, I haven't stopped to take the time to capture these moments on camera. This was a great realization for me so I feel like I will be posting more often...starting tomorrow! :o)
