Lucky Number Seven

In terms of baby milestones, I'd say we've hit the jackpot.

At this point, I'm afraid to even blink for fear I'll miss something. Like his first word, or his college graduation.

As quick as Remy's progress was over Christmas - he went from rocking on his knees to crawling in 0.52 seconds - I really shouldn't be so surprised. But I'm a Mom who is in denial that my baby boy is growing up at lightning speed.

It all started with an innocent little kneel, as Remy is so eloquently demonstrating in the photo below.

If I'd only known what was in store, I would have scooped him up so fast and made it my life goal to make sure his precious little toes didn't touch the floor again until he was at least 16 years old. 

But Remy was one step ahead of me and, after deciding not to hold anything back I assume, pulled himself up and shimmied his way over to the corner of the crib. True story.

Please excuse me while I have a momentary Mommy freakout. #*@#&!!!

Now it's all he does. He's like "Oh hey, maybe I'll just stand up while playing. No big deal."

And if that weren't enough to send any Mom into a state of panic (I might have mumbled babyproofing in my sleep), we've also found his second tooth.

No photos of the teeth yet. But let's be honest, wouldn't you rather look at this cute face instead?
So we are doing our best to make sure he doesn't gnaw off a finger (his or ours, he doesn't seem to have a preference). 

And we are enjoying every second.

New Year's Resolutions

Hi everyone! It's me, Remy.

Now that I've had a chance to play with taste all of my new Christmas gifts, I thought it was time to put some New Year's Resolutions together.

You can see more pics of my 1st Christmas here.
I'm a little new at this, but I've been listening to Mom for some ideas. Speaking of Mom, she obviously needs to keep brainstorming since I don't think her goal of sleeping through the night is going to happen any time soon. To tell you the truth, I happen to enjoy our midnight get togethers.

So after giving it some thought - you know, like during diaper changes and such - I've come up with the following resolutions..

1. Work on my speed.

Now that I've figured out the logistics behind crawling, I need to work on my timing. My goal is to be fast enough to give Mom a good chase.

2. Take a break.

With all of that crawling, it will be super important to take breaks and rest. I wouldn't want to pull a muscle.

3. Help around the house.

Because really, it's the least I can do.

4. Use my imagination.

Who needs a fancy car when you've got this awesome one-seater?

5. Be cuter.

Some of you may be asking yourself  "Self, is this even possible?" Well I'm here to tell you that I'm not sure. But I'm going to give it everything I've got.

Well here goes...wish me luck!
