Thought you might like to see just what goes on in our house when Ben is getting ready for bed and on his way into the tubby. It has become he and daddies nightly routine for him to go "running through the house naked" while Adam is yelling WooooHooooo!!!!!! naked baby running through the house!!!! over and over again. I'm sure our duplex neighbors are wondering what the nightly yelling is all about :)
Enjoy my crazy crazy men!!

I can't believe my baby is 9 months old today! Seriously where has the time gone? It seems like just last week he was only a few weeks old. I watch him everyday and notice that he is not much of a baby anymore :( he has turned into such a funny little dude! At any moment he will look at you smile real big and then laugh as if you just said the funniest joke. Sometimes all I want to do is just squeeze him and make him laugh.
I bought a new book today call "Bringing up boys" It had a poem in it that I fell in love with and so I leave it with you.
That Little Boy of Mine:
Two eyes that shine so bright,
Two lips that kiss goodnite,
Two arms that hold me tight,
That little boy of mine.
No one could ever know how much your coming has
Because I love you so, you're something heaven
You're all the world to me.
You climb upon my knee.
To me you'll always be,
That little boy of mine.

On the subject of Ben moving we had official crawling movements this afternoon. Adam and I tried our hardest to get decent motion on video but it seemed like every time we would pull out the camera he would just stop and look at us. At least he's figured it out and is now on his way :) Go Ben Go!!!

My morning went great! I was super nervous for no reason at all and Beth was a huge help, Thank You. It looks like this is going to be a good year for the EOSC. we saw a lot of new faces and welcomed back a lot of current members. hopefully things will continue to go smoothly. We still have a lot of work to do but once we get everyone processed in the system it will all be downhill.

OK! I'm done now :)
Ben is napping so I am going to use this time to get the house picked up and things in order. Maybe i'll get to shower today? Oh yea! I have to be somewhere tonight so I guess I better shower before I go :)

We took our tour of the CDC today and met the ladies who will be watching Ben. they were very sweet and super nice. Ben wanted to get down and play with the two other kids there so I think he will do just fine. I think I have decided to take him there once a week(maybe Wednesdays) so he gets used to going and has that interaction with other kids his age.
I have decided to make the switch to cloth diapers. We have finally started to run out of all the diapers from my shower that Carrie gave me and well I have quickly realized how expensive they are. I have chosen to do the Bum Genius brand since they are AIO(look at me I'm already learning the lingo). I am very excited about the whole thing and think Ben will like them also. I have also heard it makes potty training boys much easier so we will see. I'm sure with the CDC I will have to use disposables but I think I can handle a few days a month of that.

I am amazed each and every day with how fast he is changing. It seems like he is constantly doing new tricks. He's starting to find his groove with music and attempting to dance(this is hysterical to watch) I think he has his daddies rhythm :) He says Dada, Mama, and sometimes will come up with a Nana. he does this after we hang up from talking to his G.G. or my mom. It just melts my heart to hear him say it. He is now waving bye bye and does the sign for all done when he's finished eating. I am so proud of him! We have a very smart kiddo on our hands.
Ben will be starting at the CDC for the first time ever this Thursday. I am absolutely terrified!! In all my craziness I decided to join the board of the OSC(Officers Spouse's Club) and our first coffee of the year is Thursday morning and I have to be there kid free. Ben and I are taking a tour of the facility Monday afternoon to make sure we have everything in order. I am going to be a total wreck and probably not enjoy the coffee much. I know it will be good for Ben and he will do just fine, he's such a happy kid. Please keep us in your prayers as I jump this big hurdle in the mommy world :)

After our little shopping trip Ben had his normal nightly tubby. He has always been a big fan of the bath but it seems the older he gets the more vocal he is and the more he splashes like a crazy man. I think there is nothing sweeter than a baby in the tub having a blast!
