Last week

was life changing. I've learned I hate the site of one thing on Javen. Boogers. He got sick last week and had LOTS of them. I was going CRAZY wiping this kids nose all week. (I even suctioned it so much that it bled! Only a tiny tiny bit I promise, but I still felt really really really bad and vowed to never do that again.) This picture is the only one I got of the bubble and doesn't do him justice on the massive ones he was producing. We did manage to make it through however and he is getting better. No more booger bubbles.


And then, another thing happened. He started to army crawl! My times of laying him down and knowing he will stay there are about to be over. Okay, for now he really can't go that far but I know I don't have too long before the messess and injuries begin!

His idea of actually crawling right now is this, and he pushes himself backwards. It's so fun to watch. Probably because he's my child, but he really does amaze me and I'm in awe of how it's possible to love such a little person so much. On a side note: he'll be six months on the 30th. WOW.

That is crazy! Hudson was barely sitting at 6 months - he will be walking before you know it too!

Amazing pictures! You really are talented. Thanks for stopping by my blog. It makes it a little less scary to go public knowing you didn't laugh hysterically when you saw it :).

Just so you know, I was eating when I read the beginning of this post, and when I saw the picture, I did feel a little sick. :) Let's hope I don't throw up when my own kid does stuff like that. It might be traumatizing (for me and him :))
