Getting Closer to 1 year old....

OMG I am freaking little baby is going to be one year old soon, I am not ready for it, I am just not ready. He is crawling really well, and cruising along the furniture. He walks well holding on to our hands. I just cannot believe how the time has flown. I know, I know it just goes faster too. It is fun watching his little mind at work (play). He is learning new things every day, and when he wants to know how to do something he watches and watches others do it until he is ready to give it a go. Monk's favorite pasttime is ripping apart magazines that I have yet to read...RIP last months Cosmo...and playing with little plastic dixie cups (read: jello shot cups...thanks cousins). I have had some opportunity to take some pictures of him, but havent had the chance to get them off the card, but soon, new pictures will be coming. There is also a video of Monk on Youtube. A few months ago I started singing Old McDonald to him and one day he started repeating the E I E I O thankfully the next time he was doing it I grabbed the vido and shot a video.....

This is the video posted on YouTube.....I was not going for visuals here, but more for the audio capture of him singing with me. If you want to see it on YouTube just look for Monk Sings...or Thedreamofmusic768 (thats me). Take a look and leave a comment if you want!!!

Ok so I cant do this right.

Life is hectic and my dear dear husband dropped our I have no pictures for my blog. Oh well, I guess I will just have to periodically try to drop a line or two on here...not that anyone is probaby reading this, but I digress.

Joshua is growing so fast, he is crawling and moving like crazy, pulling up on anything and everything he can find. He even cruised a little bit when we were visiting my mom this weekend. She was soo excited to see him creeping along holding on to the table and couch. Lately all he wants me to do is sing Old MacDonald. He loves to E-I with me when it comes to that part, and he will do it unless something shiny catches his eye.

I have been battling my PPD, I was just getting too much of the seasonal affective I think and it was making me feel down. I am working on keeping a positive outlook and being vigilant about keeping my body and mind feeling fresh.

Up to date! January 18, 2010

Here is a macro close up of one of my favorite decorations I have in my home. A wedding gift, it is glittery and beautiful. I thought I would change it up and post a picture that does not have my child in it, but for the record, most of them will be Josh. So those of you who have followed me through my pregnancy, you will get to see lots of that little baby.

Sr. and Jr. playing on a lazy sunday afternoon. We decided to spend a good chunk of the weekend in, and this is the perfect picture reflecting how our weekend went. Both Daddy and Son were in their PJ's just hanging out with the Sit to Stand play table.

January 16. 2010

Ok so I missed this day for pictures, but I will post a blog for this day just to keep myself honest. I am not going to post a picture just to fill a day, I am going to do this by the book, so please forgive my missing picture, but look forward to seeing the cool pictures to come!

This posting is in honor of my father and grandfather, Josh's Grandpa and Great Grandpa. Even though he never got to meet you in this world, he is channeling you both. I have memories of both my Grandpa and my Dad just hanging around in their white undershirts and wearing dark colored socks. The one day I woke up and without thinking put him in this onesie and grabbed the first pair of socks I could find that fit him. When I took these pictures it sparked the memories.
We love you Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. and we always will!

Ok so I hope that not every picture is of my son during this project, but he is just so darn cute that I cannot help but want to take lots and lots of pictures of him....By the way I will be using a combination of two cameras for this project. My primary camera is a Nikon D40 with an 18-55 mm lens, the other is my small P&S of which I do not have the specifics on it right now but if I post a picture from there I will be sure to let you all know. I love my DSLR camera, I am just a beginner at photos...but this camera makes me feel like I can do anything photographically....with a little practice. I am pretty awesome with Macro shots so I will work on those and perhaps post one in a few days.

Going to be doing some backing up here....bear with me

So I have decided to jump on this Project 365 thing...even though its a little late. So I have to back post a few pictures. This picture was taken on January 13, 2010. We were getting ready to leave for a dinner date with some friends and Joshua was being way too cute. So I snapped a few pictures. This started my interest in the 365 project. I am going to try and do this, if only to keep my blog up to date.

So you thought I forgot about you?

Well I didn't I just have been so crazy busy with my 6 month old (ZOMG) that the time has just slipped by way way too fast. Undoubtedly there has been a lot going on in my life, and it would take me a very long time to go through it all. I am still on meds for PPD, I tried to wean off of them but that did not work so well. I am going to try it again now that the holidays are over. My incision healed up nicely after about 8 weeks, and I spoke to a doctor about the infection and he said that I will not have to worry about it showing up again.
My little guy is getting big, bigger every day. We started feeding him cereal and purees after his 4 month appointment and he is now eating stage 2 foods, as he is a very proficient sitter, and is getting up on all fours and rocking like crazy. He is one of the most laid back happy babies I have ever known, which makes for relatively easy days for me. I do not know what I would have done if I had had a cranky baby, and as my mom says...he is nothing like you were when you were a baby. We had some issues with eczema and it took a while but he seems to have grown out of it now...that was a stressful thing....keeping an infant from scratching is not an easy job.
I know that you just want to see pictures, so I will post a few, and it is my intention (sorry that is the closest thing you will get to a resolution from me) to post blogs more often. I hope that you all are doing well.
To make it easier on me I am going to post pictures in a separate blog.
