Sleeeeeeep

Roman is a PRO sleeper now! I love it! He has been waking up once in the night for the last 7 months. People would tell me I should just let him cry it out at night so he will learn to just sleep through the night on his own, but I just didn't have the heart to do that. Plus I figured he would transition into sleeping through the night on his own. And I was right! He used to wake up at 1 to eat, then 2, then 3, then 4, then he skipped 5 and started waking up at 6, and now he wakes up at around 7! So last night I got 8 hours of sleep...with no interruptions! Do you know how wonderful that is??????? I have not slept all the way through the night since Roman was born! Now he may go back and forth for a little while but this is the beginning of the end!

Enjoying the sunshine






On Sunday, while Malachi was working on our car, Roman and I hung out on our front porch and enjoyed the sunshine!

Happy 8 months baby boy!


*Roman now weighs 18 pounds (he gained 13 oz. in 1 month!)
*He eats two to three meals a day (in addition to his regular mild feeds)
*Roman scoots anywhere he wants to go
*He gracefully goes from a sitting position to his stomach
*He has started to mimic things Malachi and I do
*He loves to scream for fun
*He walked from the living room to his bedroom while I held his arms ( I about died when he did this! He isn't even crawling yet!)
*I love this little boy more than you will ever know!

Baby # 2

Nope...I'm not pregnant. But Malachi and I have been talking a lot about baby # 2 lately. Right after Roman was born I told Malachi that I couldn't imagine ever having another baby. Because, how could I ever love another baby as much as I love Roman? Well I talked to a lot of moms or 2 or more and they said they all felt the same way...till they had baby # 2. They all said that your heart expands and you love baby # 2 just as much as the first one. So that made me feel better and finally gave into the idea of having another child. Which is a good thing since I want to have around 5 kids. I've always wanted a big family...and now that I have many people's words that I will love them all the same...I can actually do it. So for a while Malachi and I talked about trying to have another baby this upcoming December. So that when baby # 2 was born Roman would be about 2 years old. A good age difference I think. My sister and I were two years apart and growing up we were the best of friends. So I befriended this idea. Became very comfortable with it...I thought it was set in stone. Nope...it wasn't. Nothing is written in stone. Ever. I've learned this about everything in life. Malachi and I have had SO many plans about our future and so far none of them have come to pass. I'm learning to just let go and trust God in all this. But yea...now we are having to postpone having another baby. Which at first I was really upset about but now I'm ok. Having a 3-4 age difference between babies isn't so bad. And it will make having a second one easier since by the time baby # 2 comes around Roman will be old enough to help and stuff. So I have now come to peace with this plan...but who knows how long this one will last! Oh well. But it just means I have a few more years of it just being Roman and me and I really can't complain about that!

Baby pictures


I think he is the perfect blend of the two of us! I used to think he looked just like Malachi, but as he has gotten older he has started to look more like me! What do you think?

On the go

It is official...our lives are SO over! Roman is now on the go! He is not crawling quite yet, but he is army crawling. But being Roman and having to be different he only uses one arm to pull himself along. It is the cutest thing to watch him scoot around. And of course he is always trying to get into things he shouldn't be into. We are slowly baby proofing everything but it is hard! I can't put everything up so we are just going to have to keep an eye on him till he learns he can't touch certain things. But before you have a heart attack, everything dangerous is up where he can't reach him. He is perfecting the one arm army crawl and is getting pretty fast. I'll post a video sometime soon.
Today when I put Roman down for his nap I swear he gained a pound or so while he was sleeping! I felt thicker when I picked him up! It is crazy! Is it even possible for him to gain weight that fast? I'm going to weighing him on the 21st when he turns 8 months. When he turned 7 months Roman weighed 17 lbs. 3 oz...so we shall see how much he has gained in a month.

My big cheese!

I REALLY need to get better at updating this more! Our little family has so many fun little adventures and I need to document it so years from now I can come back and read through them. I don't want to forget anything!
Roman is growing up so fast! The other day I feeding and snuggling with him and I started to cry. Each day he gets older and each day goes by so fast. Before I know it he will be grown up and not want to be in my lap and snuggle with me! He won't fall asleep on my chest when he is too tired to wait to be in his crib! I just wish time would slow down so I can really appreciate each moment as it happens! Not cherish the moment by the time it has past. But anyways...now that I've had my little rant...Roman really is growing up! And he is soooo cute! What a cheese! He is always making Malachi and me laugh! He has a butt load of personality! I think he is going to be just like his daddy! I love him so much! And you can't deny when you look at that face that you fall in love with him too!
