Bye Bye Daddy

I got my new camera yesterday (Nikon D700!!!!) I am completely in love yet completely overwhelmed by all the features.

1. I had one of my nightmares come true on Sunday. I fell down the stairs (about halfway down a 16 step flight) while holding Connor. Thankfully my mommy instincts kicked in and I kept Connor from getting hurt at all. I'm a little worse for wear but not terrible. Just a sprained ankle (which I can thankfully still walk on) and a busted up knee. Garrett said I got a D- for taking care of myself but an A for keeping Connor safe.

2. I'm ordering a new camera today. I can't wait for it to get here.

3. My boss bought an office building. No more renting this antient office space. Our goal is to be moved by July 1st.

4. I think I need a Pepsi. update: I settled for a Coke cause McDonalds has them for just $1

5. Julia has been staying with us for a few days. It's been fun having her. Her drog (yes drog, not dog. We call her this because she lays on her tummy with her legs sprawled out behind her & looks like a frog. So, combine dog and frog & you get drog) is staying too so she and Jager keep each other entertained. We close the baby gate and let them run up and down the stairs & entryway w/ a tug rope & they thoroughly wear themselves out.

6. Garrett, Connor and I are headed up to the family cabin w/ Garrett's cousin Jessica and her husband Steven this weekend. Connor is got his first life jacket yesterday in preperation for the trip. How stinkin' cute is he????
Sorry for crummy quality. I-phone camera in use here since I'm currently camera-less.
7. Last week I said I wasn't sure which smile of Connor's was my favorite. I think the one in the picture above is my favorite. It may not be crazy happy/joyful but it is SO SO SO sweet.
8. Ugh, I have a voicemail.
9. I did a MOUNTAIN of laundry yesterday & I'm still not done. I'll do some more attacking tonight.
10. I'm so excited for a 3 day weekend.

10 Things about Connor Tuesday

In honor of Connor turning 8 months old (holy cow!!!) tomorrow I figured I'd do 10 things about him.

1. He climbed the entire flight of stairs yesterday (16 steps).

2. He's starting to crawl on his hands and knees now instead of just army crawls.

3. He has many different smiles & I don't know which one is my favorite.

4. He is still wearing 3-6 month onesies & 6 month pants. He's a little peanut.

5. He started pulling himself up to standing a few weeks ago so he graduated from sleeping in his pack n' play to sleeping in his big boy crib.

6. He goes from crawling to sitting all by himself now. He now sits up in the middle of the night and cries, half asleep. Connor, if you just laid back down, you would fall back asleep.

7. He's making "ma ma maaaam" sounds now. Looks like Mamma will be his first word.

8. Connor is still waiting for his first tooth. Mamma isn't complaining cause she can't get bitten as of now.

9. Even though Connor has been quite a fussy baby I can almost guarantee he'll be content in the car which I'm soooooooooooooo thankful for.

10. The separation anxiety has started. If I leave the room probably 7 times out of 10 he looses it.

Love you Connor. I can't believe you're already 2/3 of the way through your first year.

On a completely unrelated topic, I just watched the season finale of Gossip Girl. This season has been awesome!

I've been a bad blogger

Maybe you'll forgive me if I show you a cute picture of Connor.

Here are a few more of Brooke. It's hard to take a bad picture of her. So pretty.
