Siesta #3 & 8 month post

WOW....February already?!?!? I know the beginning of my posts always sound so cliche...oh well. I really mean the words I say. Ha!
Yesterday was February know what that means....a new Siesta Verse!!! This week I chose a vs. from James.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. James 1:2-3

I chose this from the bible study I am currently doing. So....I now have
#1 James 1:17
#2 Proverbs 21:23
#3James 1:2-3
in my Siesta "spiral." Don't forget if you want to post a comment on this post with your name and verse feel free or you can go to Beth Moore's blog too!

I think I need to pat myself on the back a bit....ha! Not really because I am still 3 days late but better than 2 weeks right?!?! Wyatt's 8 month flies. It really seems just like yesterday he was born. I was pretty upset with myself about not taking actual 6 month and 7 month pictures but then I thought about it....lucky for me 6 months fell about Thanksgiving and month 7 was Christmas. Still not the best but it will have to do.

8 months....

Wyatt 8 months already....both of these pictures represent these days well. You are trying to move so much. You haven't quite starting crawling yet. Rocking, pushing, rolling, and getting into a "track start" position are your ways to move around. Lately you have started pulling up on things. When we get on the floor with you you always pull up and stand hanging on to us.

You made a few trips to the Dr.  this month. ;( In the beginning of the month you began refusing solids. You had only been eating them for about a week, and not even that much. You woke up and decided "NO!" For a few days you just weren't yourself. The Dr. finally said maybe it was acid reflux. A few days with Mylanta and you were good to go. The next week you began cutting your first tooth. HA! Recently you had a really runny nose and a pretty bad cough. We could tell you were really uncomfortable. It started with interfering your sleep and eating. We decided to get you checked out again.  EAR INFRECTION #1 at 8 months old. ;( You were such a good boy though. There was a terrible snow storm and we were stuck inside for a few days and you were pretty fussy but we made it.

While at the Dr. so much we were about to get your weight...17.5 lbs and about 3 weeks ago I measured you at almost 29 inches. Such a growing boy!

Like stated before you are only taking bottles of pump breast milk. It was my goal to make it a year with you...we have almost made it. We have given you some bananas the past few days and you are actually taking a few bites. Hey, something is better than nothing....I have just come to terms with you are probably going to go from breast milk to table food. I don't think I have a problem with it!?!?

Wyatt, your daddy and I love you so much. (and that's an understatement) Our lives are so full with you...we love our little family and the time we get to spend together. You are such a joy. Your smile lights up a room (your screaming will clear one out). When we are out people stop us to look and smile...then they say how cute you are. ;) We love it!!!


  1. haha! i love the slobber and torn paper! :) such a busy boy! can't wait to roll around on the floor with him on Sunday! muah!

  2. Great verses, I posted mine yesterday on the Siesta Site - From Proverbs 31 (working on the "Wife" section LOL)

    Are you doing the James study from the Good Morning Girls website? Following the SOAP outline? Just curious - I'm doing it as well. Great way to study the Bible!

  3. 8 months! Wow, time does fly. He is adorable!!!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
