Can you believe it? There is no way that it's been 8 months since my water broke and we rushed to the hospital. Today, Preston is a curious and busy little man who never sits still and brings us unending joy. Even as I type this, he's crawled out into the hallway and is pulling on a drawer handle. WAIT- did I say "crawling?" Yep. In the last week, Preston has mastered the world's fastest army crawl. He's so quick, that it has been difficult to catch on camera, but I got this in his room this morning.
He's getting into everything these days, which- as I've mentioned before- is a nightmare while trying to keep our house picked up for showings. Speaking of the house, we've had more traffic this last week then every before, so our fingers are painfully crossed! Anyways, back to P getting into things. It was finally time to break down and buy outlet covers. He could be in a room full of toys and still be liable to wiggle over and prefer to stick his fingers in the sockets. He hasn't actually done this quite yet, thankfully, but let's just say it's been narrowly avoided. His favorite thing these days is swinging doors, flipping light switches, pulling the laundry chute door, grabbing open cupboard doors, and basically anything that is NOT a toy like the remote, coasters, our cell phones, etc... If it's small and colorful, forget it.
We recently stopped in to see Kevin at work and had I known Kevin wore a RED golf shirt that day, I would have dressed Preston appropriately to match. Until then, he's proud to wear pink.
He's our little prep with his little polo shirt and popped collar!
The Allen County Main Library has an AWESOME section for kids, and I've taken him before, but now that he's more interactive, Kevin and I took him this last Sunday... the weather was crap so we decided to immerse ourselves in books. What did he want in a room full of baby toys and fun accessories to play with? The metal sign. Although we were able to distract him with a block for a few minutes. Thankfully, the entire trip wasn't a wash. ;)
We've been going to the playground at Foster Park near our house a lot and just this week, tried Preston in their swings for the first time. He loved it- check it out-
These past 8 months have been the most fulfilling (and trying) of our lives. We can't wait to see what lies in store with this amazing little guy!
