Busy Busy

I don't update my blog like I used to. I feel so busy! I update my savings blog twice a day, am checking my email constantly to see if my realtor has sent me more housing listings, go out looking with my realtor every other day, and then there is Weston. It's not enough that he was crawling at 5 1/2 months. That's enough to keep a mom busy, but now he pulls himself up on everything. Is that normal for a 7 month old? It's the cutest thing when he gets to his feet, he starts laughing. Like it's this big feat he has conquered. My sister commented to me on how busy my kids are, and asked why I had such busy kids. When I go to friends houses their kids seem just as busy as Autumn and Weston. So to me, my kids are normal. Busy, yes. But for me it's fun that way and if I were to have a kid who acted any different it would be strange to me.

Here are some pictures to explain Weston's busyness. They are all taken with cell phones.

Autumn was watching a movie in her room, thought it would be fun to sit in the laundry basket and Weston climbs up to get her.

My sister watched my kids for a me and she sent me this picture. Weston was sitting in the recliner and he climbed over the arm of the chair to the top of her coffee table.This was just yesterday. I was sitting on the couch and then I see these eyes peering over the coffee table. It was hilarious.He climbs on chairs, bookshelves, anything that he can get his little hands on that will support him. Just one day he started pulling him self up on the book shelf and now he does it all day long. I have to keep a watchful eye on this one!

I was doing a work out video while Weston played around me and I hear him laughing, I look behind me and here he was- in his toy bin:

My little mover. Yes, I realize his onesie is not buttoned, it's brand new, I took off the tags this morning and when I put it on him it wouldn't snap. He jumped from 3/6 month clothes to 6/9 month clothes over night. Now I have a ton of 6 month clothes (like this one) that are new and don't fit.

And he has outgrown his car seat. His head reaches top of it and his feet hang out of it. He is constantly kicking the backseat. So now when I go shopping with him he gets to ride up front!

He held on the whole time like he was on a roller coaster or something. I love this little man. Even though he is busy he is 10 times easier than Autumn ever was. I take him for a walk every morning and he just sits there looking around. Autumn would've needed snacks, toys, drinks, etc... She is my high maintanence child. Weston is a wonderful addition to our family. Busyness and all!

Well, from what I understand Parker is a relaxed baby. I think anyone's kids would be busy compared to him! Seeing Weston climbing onto the coffee table reminded me of Jackson climbing onto the check out belt at Target. Before I knew it, he was up there! But he's priceless!

I don't know if it's common, but Ryan's nephew was a supported stander by 7 months. He was almost as cute as your little Weston. What a cutie pie.

Weston is adorable...I wish Jacob was doing something other than rolling. He looks like such a big boy sitting in the cart

What a cutie! I can't wait to see ya'll at Christmas either. April - I have busy children too, so I guess we are either normal or abnormal together. Either way I love our kids - I think they are awesome. Cute, high energy & curious. My boys were early crawlers & walkers so you may have a walker on your hands in about 2 to 2 1/2 months. That is when the boys started walking. So watch out world hear comes cute Weston. Man his little grin is so contagious. It makes me smile everytime I see his picture. No wonder you love him so much, just seeing his smile lights up the room. Love & miss you guys!

I really like the picture on the top of your blog, too. I was sure someone would comment that I think you're kids are busy because Parker is so... not busy. But, April, you're kids are busy! In a good way! Love them.
