It is amazing how fast my little man is growing up. He has two teeth, eats solid food, crawls, stands up on his own and the doctor thinks he will be walking any day now! (let's hope his prediction is wrong...once he starts walking it is all over!) We call him "Bam Bam" because he loves to hit things. It is absolutely adorable. And now when I put him in his Pack and Play, he stands right up, holds on the side and walks around to the light that is in the corner of the Pack and Play, he smacks the light and turns it on, then he switches the music on. It is hysterical. It really is amazing how quickly he catches on to things and how fast he is growing up. Here are some of my favorite photos of monkey when he was a few months old. Still bald and tiny!
I saw this quote and it made me SMILE!!!
"There comes a time when a woman needs to stop thinking about her looks and focus her energies on raising her children. This time comes at the moment of conception. A child needs a role model, not a supermodel. -Astrid Alauda, on the "hot mom" trend
Not only do I agree with this quote by I can totally attest to the truth behind it. Nope I have not made it to the gym since Harper arrived...and they are plenty of mornings where I wake up, get the baby bathed, dressed, and ready to go, pack his diaper bag, and by that time I don't have time to do my makeup or make myself look pretty. But it doesn't even phase me. I rather make sure the munchkin is ready to go than worry about my mascara. Now I still try to take care of myself and get dolled up for special occasions but that is NOT and will never be a priority to me anymore. My sweet Harper is my number one priority. His needs come first and if that means I go to work with no makeup on...so be it. I feel like there are so many moms out there that still try to look like they did in college even once they start having children. Sure it is great to look nice but if you take several hours to get ready you are missing out on precious moments with your baby. Plus getting compliments on your cute baby is way better than getting compliments on yourself! But hey, that is just my personal opinion. What do you think?
