March Blog Feature - The Morris Family

I am so excited about this month's Blog Feature!  I found Betty's blog through The Marriage Confessions and have been following it since Betty was pregnant.  At that point I was still day dreaming of the day that I would get to be pregnant.  Then Levi was born and I became even more addicted to her blog than I was before.  Her insights on marriage, raising their first baby, and just getting through life are so truthful that you can't help but be hooked.  You can check out The Morris Family for yourself!



I really didn't know what I was going to write about, when Kat asked me to guest blog. See, I'm more of a jack of all trades (wife, mom, pharmacist, etc), but master/expert of none. Matt and I have been married 3 1/2 years, I've been a pharmacist for 1 1/2 years, and Levi is 6 months old. So I am still in the "new" stages of all my "trades."


All weekend long I have been thinking and brain-storming about what I could possible put here, and then yesterday, Levi gave me all the ammunition I need. He began to crawl (cue horror music). He turns 6 months old on March 6, so we really haven't been thinking much about baby-proofing or, you know, vacuuming more than once a week, or anything like that. I mean, yes, he's been getting up on all fours and rocking back and forth, but that's just for us to look at and coo over, right?


No. Apparently not. Now all of a sudden things I put out of his reach aren't out of his reach anymore. And when I lay him down, I have to *gasp* stay in the same room as him all the time!
But I'm not going to lie, Matt and I are thrilled. As much as I miss him being so small and tiny (and still) as a newborn, I have loved every stage he's gone through. And it is so exciting to see him learn and do new things! Now, when we lay him down in his bed at night, he can crane his head real high and you see his eyes peak over the railing and he watches us walk out. On one hand, it's so sad/heart-wrenching as he watches us leave him, and on the other, it's so neat that he is aware of us now.
 
 
So, the moral of the story (or so I'm learning) is to enjoy it. I am trying to enjoy every stage that Levi goes through, because the older I get, the faster time flies. And I know that 10 years from now, I'll miss this cute little wriggly ball of energy he is now and wonder where it all went!

  1. I <3 betty! I found her through MC too and started following her then too...my little girl was born 10 days after Levi and its fun to have her just ahead of me in all of the baby stuff! When I went to Birmingham I got to go to lunch with her and meet her! She is just as wonderful in real life as she is via blog land! Totally a great person and well deserving of blog land feature!!
