A lot has happened!
It's been such a long time since my last post. Not having the internet at home sure puts a damper on my blogging time.
Alot has happened in the past few weeks. Nixon has learned to crawl. Well he's been doing it since about Valentines day. He is all over the house exploring! He sure keeps Mom and Dad on their toes. We are always searching for him and find him in weird places such as the laundry room chewing on lint fuzzys. Gross I know, I've learned to keep the laundry room door shut.
Then two days ago he started crawling up the stairs. I was looking for him and saw him stuck on the second step. Luckily he didn't fall down the stair! So I guess that means that I need to get a baby gate so he can't go up anymore.
He is also starting to become a couch surfer, well he pulls himself up to a standing position but he forgets to move his feet. It will happen all too soon though. He is so funny, much to Blake's dismay, I'm afraid he is going to be a ballerina when he grows up. Nixon is constanly on his tip toes. Hardly ever is he flat footed!
Nixon also had his first real haircut. I'm a horrible mother and didn't get any pictures of the before or after, but I did save all the hair. I know I'm weird. Nixon was so good for his daddy. Blake used the clippers and Nix just sat there in the sink while daddy cut his hair. I think he liked to look at himself in the mirror. He looked so handsome at the end, although we still have to just give him a mohawk. Sometimes I can kinda spike it up, but at the end of the day all the hair just migrates to center.
Here is a picture that I tried spiking his hair. THis was just a few days after the cut.
We've also hit another huge milestone. Drum roll please.... Nixon is finally finally sleeping through the night (knock on wood). Mommy and Daddy are loving the extra sleep that we've been missing for so long. He is also finally taking good naps now too. At least a few hours. Its GREAT!!
