LB is 5 Months Old!

Holy camoly where has time gone?? I really need to get better about updating this. It is 2012 now, and that means LB was born last year! This makes me a little sad. I really need to soak up every minute I have with LB because time sure does fly. I find myself thinking about the future a lot, like when he starts crawling, walking, running around. I really want to stop doing that though and just enjoy NOW. I know I will miss this time where he needs me for everything and needs me to carry him around. I love it and do not want to rush a single moment.

I gotta say I am really getting better at this being a mother thing. It is hard, but I am slowly getting better and better, and I love it. This is the most rewarding job. I am also very proud of myself for how I have adapted to everything with him. Don't get me wrong, I still have my moments. I especially hate when I'm out somewhere and need hubby to practically do everything because it is harder for me in different places. I have gotten much better at everything though. I also gotta say, as a very impatient person (I'm working on that) I am never impatient with LB. It is amazing how he just puts me in slow down mode.

I guess I owe it to him to be patient, since he is so very patient with me. It may take me 20 minutes to put on his pants, but he just sits there and watches me and smiles. He was truly sent from God just for me. I am so in love.

He rolled over back to belly for the first time a couple weeks ago. I was soooo excited! At 4 months we started him on cereal. He has had avocados a couple times and rice cereal but right now he prefers the oatmeal. I am still waiting to feed him the other stuff. I'd like to try to wait until 6 months but I'm just so excited I don't know if I can wait. We bought a baby bullet and plan to make his food. Hopefully I'll have the patience for that. I know it will be good for him.

I have a few New Year's resolutions.
1. Be a great mommy.
2. Be a great wife.
3. More patience.
4. Pay off bills.
5. Slow down and take it all in.

Number 5 is so important. I have so much to look forward to this year. I need to remember to just soak it all in. Life is good. I love my life.
