Eight Months.

At eight months Asa:
Is up! He cannot balance by himself, but he is 'pulled-up' on something most of the time. Either my legs, the cabinets, coffee table, end table, couch, dresser,.... ALL THE TIME! 
He also walks down the couch or coffee table. He can even round the corner! 

Stated really saying "dada"! Lets just say his dada is so proud. He kinda says momma but babbles lots of things. Like 'ga'. 

Favorite games are peek-a-boo and being thrown in the air. 

Wants the toilet paper. 

Smiles big and giggles after a sneeze and I say "bless you"! Not sure if it's the sneeze he likes or me blessing him!?! But either way it's cute. 

He will suck on his pacifier some. But it's more of a toy then a comfort. 

Beginning to start waving. 

Funny thing. When I build blocks with him, he knocks them over as fast as he can. And I really wanted to build a tall tower! I might enjoy his toys as much as he does! I guess now I have an excuse to play toys!! 

And he is learning things in extreme short amounts of time. He changes daily. It is so fun to see him learn. 

We are continually saying, "He is so cute!!"" Can you wear that phrase out? We're going to try. 
I'm sure we are not much different then any other first time parent, but you just don't get it until you have one of your own!! God is so good!! 

We are working on our top teeth. 

And we got our first "haircut"! (More of a trim around the ears!) 

And he loves loves loves his dad!

I'm going to use this post as kind of a "confessions" or put myself out there kinda post. 
Recently I've had this urge to write. To put my feelings and thoughts down on paper (or some sort of black and white!). Even though I have these feelings, I'm not that great of a writer. I will sit down and put words on a page, then read it and think, "that sounded so much better in my head." But here is to organizing my thoughts on paper. 

One thing I would like to write is more blog posts. Share more about my life. Not that it is that interesting, but, being a stay at home mom, it would feel more like some human interaction, even if that interaction is just me, my thoughts and a computer. 

Another thing that I would like to write is children's books. My sister and I make some baby/children things. Swings. Bedding. Clothes... She has been way more successful at it then me. I seems to have too many interests. I will make one thing then have another idea and want to make something else. (And then I'm pretty much the only one who likes my ideas!) and kinda like this blog post, my intentions get redirected. So back on track. I think that if we added some cute stories about things we name out products after would be cute. We'll see if I ever get that dream off the ground. And plus, I have no idea how to even get a book published. 

Tonight is going to be a little start to me writing more. This will probably be nothing more then a memory for me to look back on in ten years and say, "wow, I knew nothing then!" Hopefully I learn a lot in the next ten years!!

I think about sharing things that I've learned about being a new mommy or struggles about being a new mommy and how I don't know what I'm doing. I've thought about sharing Asa's outfits and do #ootd for him. (That's outfit of the day.... I had to look it up, not long ago, to figure it out!) But for today, I'm just going to share my New Years resolutions. We're only 10 days into the new year, better late then never! 

1. Pray more. 
I was watching the Glenn Beck Program before Christmas and he was visiting with his wife about them. Resolutions that is... and he said that he didn't want to make some lame resolution like, loose weight or read my bible more. Not at those things are bad, but we (as humans) tend to just think about the broad things and then don't stick to them. Anyways.... It made since to me. So, with that being said, I want to talk to God more then I talk to myself in a day. Take time away from my own thoughts to listen to him. I know it will be hard, my mind goes a million miles in circles, but I'm in need of that!!

2. Cook. 
This is kinda two parts. I want to be better about thinking about meals (that different then meal planning, right?) and getting them on the table at a decent time. Asa needs that. Part two, I'm going through all my recipes, things I've clipped or printed off and stuck in a drawer never too be tried, and organize, try and toss. Or keep. I've started. I have a new note book that I've started writing all my go to recipes or Christmas recipes in where it is prettier and organized!! 
Oh and making a Christmas cookbook with all the stuff I grew up on.... Meal and treats... That way it's all in one spot!! Good gift for the fam too! 

Well, two is about all the resolutions I can muster. I would like to have clean my house more, but I know that I will break that before the month is over. Don't get me wrong, my house isn't that messy, just un-dusted. I do keep it picked up. And then I have a crawler that scatters things all over, but I usually pick up all toys and ect. after he goes to bed. We start fresh in the morning. 

Ok, I don't think I have anything else interesting to say.
