Thanks to David Bowie for the title of today’s post.
I wrote the other day that we were kind of at a standstill, a calm before the storm. Well, that storm is coming. Not Hurricane Sandy, although not a powerful storm (category 1/tropical storm) but LARGE, very very large and hitting an area that is not equipped to handle a situation like this. As anyone in Insurance will tell you, these big, slow storms are as bad, if not worse that the fury you find in a small, more powerful storm.
I am talking about Xavier and all the wonderful changes we are seeing from him almost daily. WE HAVE TEETH! He has one that is popping through on the bottom and another one not far behind. As soon as the little guy gives us a good look at them long enough to snap a pic, I will post it.
He is becoming so mobile! He is really really getting around quite well. well, without crawling. He is getting up on all fours and rocking, but he hasn’t quite figured it out yet, but he is soooo close. even without crawling, he is scooting around pretty darned well and starting to become a little more mobile. that means mommy and daddy have to start changing everything in the home. making sure he can’t pull anything down on him, making sure all sharp objects are well out of reach. just looking out for the little guy. Accidents are a part of life, but we can try to be as preventative as possible.
I am loving watching the evolution of this little man that Anna and I have brought into this world. he is really such a blessing and reminds me everyday what true love really is. and just when I thought I have hit the max, he finds ways to open my heart even more. So not only is he changing, but I find myself changing just as much. He is the catalyst of that change, and I couldn’t be more excited for whats to come.
