Longer out than in


This was me 41 weeks and 2 days ago, when Silas was still in the Womb. 

This is Silas, 41 weeks and 2 days ago; just minutes old!

Silas has officially been outside of the womb longer than he was in!

I can hardly believe what a difference 41 weeks makes.

When Silas was born he was 8lbs 7oz and 20.5 inch long.

Now he 9 months, 1 week and 5 days old. He is 20lbs 8oz and 29.25 inches long.

Before I know it he is going to be a year old and walking. Already he is cruising around the house on his hands and knees like he's been doing it forever.

And he is finally cutting a tooth! It's small, sharp, and not quite fully out, but it's there!

He is becoming such a big boy.

This is Silas' newest toy. He loves it!

Mommy found him this swing at Wal-Mart and Daddy helped us install it. Silas spent nearly an hour enjoying his swing. He was giggling and laughing and enjoying the wind in his hair.

Daddy is sure that he has a buddy for roller coaster rides when he gets older!

Valentine's Day = Silas is 9 months old!

Silas is 9 months old today! It's hard to believe that he is 3/4 of a year old, or that in 3 months he will no longer be our baby, but our toddler!

Silas is such a happy child. He is always smiling and giggling!

Or blowing raspberries! This is his new game while at church! He'll blow raspberries at the people around them, clap, and do it again. He loves it when people laugh and smile at him and it makes me want to do it more!

When he isn't blowing raspberries or smiling (or putting his fingers in his mouth!) he seems to be sucking on his upper lip. That little bit of his tongue seems to always be out.

He is my favorite Valentine, after his daddy!

For Valentine's Day Gammie watched Silas while Josh took me out to dinner. We went to the Rokerji and had a yummy dinner. We exchanged gifts and Josh surprised me with the beautiful necklace above. It's hand stamped with Silas' name and is paired with his birthstone. When we got home we snuggled Silas and put him to bed and watched a movie together. It was the perfect Valentine's date!
