Growing Up Too Fast

James had been pretty fussy all day yesterday, and by bedtime I didn't know what to do with him! Mike discovered our problem - a new tooth! James is almost 9 month old, so I understand it's normal for him to have a tooth now; I am not prepared for my little boy to be so big :( I'm already forgetting the sweet, little, baby things that he did months ago.
I don't want to forget his baby love-handles.

I don't want to forget the way he stuffs both fists in his mouth when he's really happy.

I don't want to forget the way his eyes roll back in utter contentment when he's nursing.

I don't want to forget the sound of his soft giggle before he falls asleep.
I don't want to forget the way he gasps *surprised* when air blows in his face or water sprays on his back in the shower.

I don't want to forget the cute way he coughs when he's trying to pooh.

I think I'm going to enjoy reviewing my life after I die, so I can see and remember all of these little things that I'm going to miss.


  1. so sweet. He is such a cute boy! and a tooth!! That is exciting!! I'm kinda starting to hope AC waits until 9 month to FINALLY pop some of those out!

  2. I love that picture of his surprised face! That's awesome. Does he have a birthmark on his back?

  3. Hooray! I love your blog...so funny! I'm guessing you made your sling. I am searching for the rings to go in it...have any ideas? I am NOT paying $80 for the sling I want...highway robbery. If you made yours, where did you get the rings?
