Jack is 8.5 months & Pearl is 2.5 years!

I feel so bad that I haven't updated at all about Jack. I always say I'm going to, but I never find the time. Being a working mom is challenging at times.

Dear Jack,
You are growing up way too fast. I think part of reason it is going by so fast is because I have been working since you were 2.5 months old. I can't believe you will be one in 3 months! You are the cutest, sweetest boy. I'm so grateful that God gave you to me. I'm going to try to recall some of your milestones (and I'm sorry I didn't take the time to write them down).
Crawled at 7 months
Tasted food at 5 months
Said dada first around 6 months, and said mama shortly after
Got a tooth at 6 months
We just started you on (some) table foods last week. Because you get so mad when we eat in front of you, and some times refuse baby food. I want your top teeth to come in before we move completely to table foods. You've been pulling up and standing the last couple weeks. I think you'll be walking pretty soon! You think your sister is the funniest thing in the world. You just adore her. You need lots of lovin' and attention lately. Oh you can clap and do patty cake! We will be getting you baptized soon! Things have just taken a little longer. You are definitely more of a risk taker than your sister was. You like to climb on everything, and put anything you can find into your mouth. You hate getting your diaper/clothes changed. You have the cutest laugh. I love it.

My Pearl,
You are so crazy! But you can also be the sweetest thing. You are getting so smart. You amaze me daily. Most of the time you are good with Jack, but you have your moments. You enjoy making him laugh, and giving him kisses goodnight. You can count to 20, and you talk so much. I love your hugs and kisses. You started saying "soo pretty". You are using your imagination, and love to play in your play kitchen. When you toot you laugh. I want to laugh too, but I keep a serious face and ask you "what do you say?" "S'cue me" for as many times as you tooted. You're the best! I hate that I don't always have patience with you. I love making you happy, and having fun with you. I love watching you grow. You're changing so much, so fast and I can't believe it.
