Galations 2:20-21

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly." Galations 2:20-21

I woke up Friday with a hankerin' for doughnuts. Now, I'm not really a huge fan of doughnuts, but for some reason I had a craving. Byron didn't have to go into work, so he suggested go to Krispy Kream for breakfast and then go garage-saling. I'm not really a spontaneous person, but I went along with it. So, Byron found some garage sales to go to and mapped it all out. We were out of bed and out the door in 20 minutes.

Unfortunately, the closest Krispy Kreme is 35 minutes away. With our belly's grumbling it was a looong drive. When we finally got there we realized that we were at the actual Krispy Kreme factory-cool! As we were figuring out what we wanted to order we were handed two fresh baked glazed donuts (my fave!) for free! We were tempted to just order a milk chug and call it a day, but we were polite and ordered a few more. Plus, Gideon had to try his first donut! We enjoyed a nice and very sugary breakfast (maybe that's why my eye was twitching all day) and then went on to the garage sales.

He's a fast learner ;)

Needless to say the pickins were slim. Some of the ones we went to literally opened the garage door and called it a sale. We didn't even bother getting out of the car for half of them. Oh well. Better luck next time? It was still a fun morning and I got to spend it with my two favorite guys....and leftover Krispy Kreme as an added bonus!

My Kid is a Weirdo

One of the many joys in my life is watching my little man play. Today he was being such a well behaved cuddly kid. Here is one of the silly things he was doing (for several minutes before I got to film it). Boy, do I love this kid.

My 9 month Old

Have I really been a mom for 9 months already? It seems like just yesterday that I taking my little boy home from the hospital.

He's been keeping me busy these days. Always, ALWAYS moving. Can hardly keep up with him. Pulling himself up on everything. He went from slithering everywhere to doing a full out real crawl now.

Baby-Led weaning has been working out well for us. He eats a variety of foods. I was a little worried about the orange today, but he seemed to like it. His pincer grasp has developed quite well. He can pick up any small piece of food and get it to his mouth just fine.

He also is "sharing." He likes to offer up whatever he's playing or eating. I pretend to take or eat it to encourage him to share.

I used to think I kept a pretty clean house until I found him finding little things (like pieces of fuzz) and putting them into his mouth.

He has 2 teeth on the bottom now and another one on the way. The poor kid is in a lot of pain and sleeps even worse than ever now. We have found two secret weapons (for the sleep) that seem to do the trick though: The vacuum and dancing with mom to Jack Johnson. Any suggestions on ways to help with the teething would be greatly appreciated.
