This week has been one of the longest weeks in a while. Not all in a bad way either. I have just been doing a million things, so has my hubby, and so has Jackson!

We are all looking forward to tomorrow. We head to the Pumpkin Farm with the grandparents! We have been looking forward to this weekend since last fall when we went and I was pregnant. The pumpkin farm we are going to is so neat. They even have real giraffes the kiddos can pet!

On Wednesday we had swim. The heater in the pool was broken. So the water was obviously a little cold. Jack was alright swimming for the first 10-15 minutes. Then he stuck his face in the water and choked a little. Normally he shakes that off and keeps going. But I think after that and the coldness he was done. He didn’t want to play at all. My little pumpkin kept trying to burrow into me. So we left early. Only to head into an even colder locker room! He was very upset. I tried to take a warm shower while holding him except the showers had a very rough stream and he didn’t like that either. I ran to change him quickly. While he was crying and making sounds I swear he said “momma” so clearly that I repeated the word to him saying “momma, yes momma is moving as fast as she can!” I have been trying to get him to say it again but I am not good at letting him get so upset he says it. It seems he only did it because he needed me so much at that moment. It is a step!

Yesterday at Gymboree he hit another milestone! He has begun the army crawl! Oh my!!! I was so excited and happy for him that I cried! He has gotten the concept that he needs to move his hands as well as his legs to go forward. He pulls himself with his little arms. It is the cutest thing. He is on the move. Thankfully not super quick yet. But it is just the start and I am in for an adventure. I am so happy for him. He has been working so hard at this for the past 2 months. Thursdays at Gymboree were upsetting for me and him until after the exercise part was over. He even went on to do it a home a number of times. Jason got to see it in person. We seriously have to measure for safety gates.

On a fit note. I have been trimming down my average mile time while running with the little man! I am back in the 11’s. Not my best time but I challenge you to push about 50lbs of stroller and baby and gear and see how your time changes. It has been an adjustment. You truly have to get in stroller pushing shape.

He is still asleep because of the crazy winds we had last night. They kept waking my poor baby up. He would sound terrified. He calmed down as soon as one of us went in there and comforted him. Thankfully. But I imagine he is exhausted. I am looking forward to whatever adventure with him today brings.
