7 Month Itch

I know its Tasty Thursday and I should do a recipe post today. However, since today is Sterling's 7 month birthday, I had to do a shout out to my baby boy. Don't worry the recipe will be featured tomorrow instead!

Today my baby boy is 7 months old, I can't believe how fast this first year is flying by! People were indeed serious when they said the first year goes by in the blink of an eye! Funny because pregnancy seems to linger on forever and then this time period flies by! This is such a good age that I am starting to get the itch to want another baby. I am starting to forget how hard the beginning was with no sleep and a crying baby all the time. This is the perfect age because he now recognizes us and interacts with us, yet he can't walk and get into everything. He still loves to be held and cuddled. I want to freeze this time period because it is the best. His smiles and laughs melt my heart like nothing else!

Now don't go freaking out we are not ready to have another baby quite yet. I want to continue to give Sterling my undivided attention for a little bit longer. Not to mention I am enjoying the fact that I can finally fit back in all my old jeans and drink all the wine I want. Also my younger brother just got engaged and I really don't want to be a pregnant bridesmaid, so we are gonna hold off for awhile. But I do think about baby number 2 often! Its hard not to when you have such a precious baby! I will say I am scared of how hard it will be with two kids. One is manageable to run errands and do things. I am not quite sure how I will stay as active as I am with two little ones, but people manage this feat all the time:)

Happy 7 month Birthday to the sweetest baby ever! Sterling, I love you more than you will ever know and you make my life so much better. I can't even imagine my life before you were born! You are the greatest gift I could ever ask for! I thank God everyday for blessing Matt and I with such a wonderful baby boy!

Aw so sweet Nat! Even though I had to speed read and briefly close my eyes during the parts about it being scary hard with two and no sleep, yadda yadda yadda. haha. But I totally think you should forget about the bridesmaids dress and get pregs :)

PS. Katie or Logan, if you are reading this, I am totally kidding. I just want someone to share in my sober pregnantness. :)
