It is now October 16th
and I am just now posting.
Joseph will be 7 months old this Saturday. I can't BELIEVE he is more than half a year old!
Time has flown by way too quickly. Still, I am happy as ever to be his mommy. He is such a bundle of fun!
At his 6 month appointment, he was only in the 20th percentile for weight, and 22nd for height. And he did NOT like the doctor or nurses AT ALL!! Everyone keeps saying, "oh his stranger anxiety has kicked in already..." but I have news for everyone... his stranger
ALWAYS been kicked in. He's always been anti-just-about-anyone-who-is-not-mom-or-dad. Spoiled kid. :)
So, new adventure for our family... Jopes left this morning for a 4 DAY field trip to the Grand Canyon. It's the first time he and I have been away overnight, and I do not like it. Even little Joseph got irritated today and I'm sure it was because his dad had not come home to play with him and he was very bored with mom. Sad day. We both miss him a lot, but Becca was a wonderful help today. Joseph and I even survived clean checks tonight. I put him in the backpack and he was good the whole time. Jopes and I were really blessed with a wonderful baby. *sigh* 1 day down, 3 more to go. Ugh. I could never go to bed without Jopes when he was here at home. So now I find myself blogging at 12:38AM because I don't want to go to bed without him. I guess I'd better give in though, or little Joseph will find me very boring tomorrow! Much love to everyone!! Good night.
