here is a prime example of what i'm talking about...
my conversation with joann's fabric kid...
fabric guru: Joann's fabric, this is Karl.
me: yes, i'm calling to see if you carry scrapbook paper.
fabric guru: yeah, we've got that
me: great, do you have Christmas styles?
fabric guru: um, sure
me: ok, well i'm going to have to run over there on my lunch so you're sure?
fabric guru: i should really check first
me: great, thank you.
fabric guru: we have stickers for Hanukah
me: super. i'm actually looking for Christmas paper though.
fabric guro: the stickers are on sale though.
me: great, i'll check out the jewish stickers. but I really need Christmas paper.
fabric guro: yeah, we've got that too. I'm sure it's by the stickers
me: ok, because again i'll be using my lunch to go over there...
fabric guro: ok, i'll check
The End. Well, almost. turns out I just run over on lunch, buy my christmas paper and some other junk. then when i leave, he forgets to put the paper in my bag. i get all the way back to work and realize that this stellar employee gave me everything but the ever-important paper. seriously!?! so i call back and he truly says to me, yeah, i was wondering why you left them here. grr. thank you joann's fabric guy. you topped it off for me.

Well, Connor has been making huge strides as far as development and that kinda stuff goes. He's full on crawling now, well for the past few weeks. He's fast enough to give the cats concern now so that's pretty darn fast. They used to just walk past him and smirk that he'd never be able to get to them before they'd be outta there...now, they keep an eye on him at all times. Not only is he fast, but he's sneaky:) "Get the kitty" is becoming a funny daily event. He's also standing and pulling himself up on anything he can now. We had to drop his crib mattress to the lowest point a few weeks ago because we walked in to find him standing up in his crib just watching us. It was amazing and scary all at the same time. As freaking cliche as it may sound, he's just grown up so quick.
One of my best friends Ashley had her daughter yesterday morning and I just can't believe that only 6 months ago Connor was that tiny. Claire was 8lbs 3 oz and that's more than 2lbs more than Connor weighed. He just looked at her like, yeah, i'm bigger than you.
We had his 6 month photos taken in October, so here are some of the results. We are in love with them. Shout out to Portrait Innovations for doing a stellar job. Helps that my kid smiles constantly and is a complete ham for the camera!
Connor with all his animal friends. That's Righty the Elephant, Chomps the Alligator, Morris the Cat and Pepper the Puppy...
Another cute one...I believe I mentioned that he loves having his photo taken...
