Happy November and birthday week to me! What a treat this week has been for me- 70's and sunny! Ahh... We've made sure to soak up all of the beautiful weather, especially with it getting dark at 5 now. This daylight savings has thrown me for a big loop this year. I know it happens every year and maybe it has something to do with me having a baby, but come 5pm, I am e x h a u s t e d. But, it may have something to do with us chasing our little crawler around. Yup, you read correctly. Grayson is crawling!!

He has been wanting to be on the move for a while now, and last the week, he connected the dots and started to move. He started off slowly, but within a day or two, quickly picked up speed. My friend, Sarah always talks about how she is chasing after her little boy, but I never thought much about it! Now I get it. They are fast, are in to everything and are quick to pick up on things. It's been so, so fun, but there has been some frustration to come with it too.

I've been trying to find the words to type this to not make it seem like I am complaining or whining. I do realize how blessed we are with a beautiful healthy baby, but that doesn't mean I (&we) don't have some tough days or weeks. Although you see a lot of smiles above, these past two weeks have about done me in. On top of his crawling, he is now voicing more of his opinion, especially when I leave the room for a second. There has been a lot more crying, like a lot. Naptimes have not been fun.

I've heard of this period (attachment period) with babies and I'm trying to remind myself that it's just a phase and to enjoy it, but at times, I find myself getting frustrated and then feeling guilty that I became frustrated. Ha- such a Mom. I quickly remind myself (& pray) that it's ok if I am frustrated, it doesn't mean I don't love Grayson or love that he is learning, but that I am learning too! This is new to me. God sees that and knows. He gives me so much grace, which I need. This has been a big growing & learning month for all of us.

So, I guess what I'm trying to say with all this rambling, is that it's ok if you're having a bad day, week, month. Don't feel guilty about it. You will get through it.

 I'll leave you with some crawling videos! xoxo
