Don't You Ever Grow Up...

Oh Taylor Swift. You so get me! First love, heartache, mean girls, and now first born??

To you, everything's funny
You got nothing to regret
I'd give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
It could stay this simple

These lyrics have ran through my head so much these past few weeks. It seems like our little guy is growing faster than we can keep up! It is both exciting and heartbreaking at the same time. So many firsts, so many changes. 

Rylan is now 8 months! He now:
-crawls everywhere...literally. 
-pulls up on everything; but his favorite is Mom's leg while she is cooking
-"walks" behind one of his toys for a few feet
-says "dada," "baba," "hey," and "mama" (usually while upset or crawling after me), and apparently "hey grandaddy" (according to my parents.....)
-wears 12 month clothes (we seemed to have skipped 9 mos...)
-continues to flirt and smile at everyone
-plays peek-a-boo with Ellie using our curtains
-sleeps in his own room
-eats mostly any solids you give him- we still give him yogurt and a pureed mix during the day, but he likes to eat what we have at night...including chicken, bread, broccoli florets, cheeseburger, pasta, and the occasional ice cream. He doesn't eat much, just little tastes. He is definitely chewing now, he likes to take french fries and bite pieces off with his two front teeth. He also chows down on the Gerber finger puffs. He loves to feed himself!

He has grown so much in so little time. Where has my baby gone??

Yeah, T. still get me. 

Luke 24:6 "He is not here, but has risen..."
What hope and promise we are given! Those words never cease to fill me with joy and excitement!
We hope you have a blessed Easter.
