Saturday random thoughts

(someone got his first bruise. Fell over on the tile while trying to crawl. He forgets he is top heavy)

We will be celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, due to my husband working in retail...

I love the smell of pumpkin and apple pie baking

Being without a car stinks.

Working on getting Christmas gifts finished-getting there slowly, but surely.

Missing my family...

Missing my hubby who is working a lot right now..

Enjoying spending time with my little man , who can now sit on his own, pull to stand, and crawl around the house like a little maniac.

Crocheting, crocheting, crocheting....Working on some new stuff for the store.

Enjoying the cooler weather we are having this week.

Realizing I am not as good of a cook as I would like to be.

Want to learn something new...

Just trying to take each day as it comes.

Remembering to be positive, happy and calm. (hard for me to do)

Being thankful for all I have in my life.

Sorry for my absense in the space this month. Things have been hectic with holiday gift making and having a husband who works in retail. I have my hands full with an 8 month old, etsy business, daily homelife, and holiday crafting.

Looking forward to celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday, which will be on Sunday for us. That's what happens when stores open on Thanksgiving day, but what can you do. My little man will just be spending his first Thanksgiving on our own day..

Be back soon with all the things I have been making

What we do after nap....

Here is another post inspired by What we do after nap. This was a nice calm activity. I took the blanket outside and we sat together and feed the ducks and birds. Darwin spent time looking at the trees, playing with his toys and trying to eat an orange, while mama worked on some crocheting for the store.

8 Months Today.....

You are  getting there. In 4 months you will be a year and I don't know where the time has gone. You are my favorite little man. I love you so much and would do anything for you. The last month has been a time of many discoveries and new learning experiences and I have enjoyed watching you learn something new everyday.

you sit so well by yourself/ you can stand holding on to furniture/ you can army crawl, but only when you want to / you have 7 teeth/ you still have not slept through the night/ you like sleeping on your mattress on the floor/ you love to bang on pots and pans/ you try to chew on wires (not safe, time to get baby proofing)/ you love splashing in the bathtub/ you are super observant of all the sounds around you/ you have been eating lots of solid food now/you tried blueberries,mango,pumpkin,plums,and much more/ you are still a skinny stringbean/ you make the cutiest sounds/ i think you have said ma/ you were an owl for halloween/ mommy took you trick or treating/ mommy ate all the candy of course/ you are always so happy and quiet/ love to chew on things even on mommy and daddy/ you like to give mommy bear hugs/ you like to pull daddys hair/ your hair is getting lighter/ yourr eyes are just like your dads/ u  try to feed yourself with the spoon/ you like making a mess like your mom/ you like to rip paper/ you laugh at all of daddys jokes/ you want mommy to carry you all the time/ you make me laugh daily/ you like to go out for walks/ you love the swings at the park/  you stil love your hats

You are such a big boy now. Can hardly remember when you were a newborn. I look forward to all the new things that we will learn and discover in the next few months.
