Letters to my sons....

Dear Gavin,
You are 8 months old!! September is here and it is still hot! I look forward to cooler weather so that we can be out of the house more often.

You have come so far this month! Lots of new things have happened. First of all, you are crawling! No more belly-crawling for you. You are also completely sitting up on your own. You actually prefer to be sitting now. You look like such a big boy. You pull up to stand and are starting to cruise around furniture. You and Kai like to pull up on the couch together. It is sweet to see you both standing together and laughing at each other. You now have 6 teeth! You got all four top teeth at the same time. Although you aren't using your teeth for anything other than biting Mommy right now. You aren't interested in food at all yet. I hoping that you start liking food soon. Because you are now crawling you are much more interested in toys. We have a bus full of blocks that you love to play with. You and Kai like to take all the blocks out and climb all over the bus. You also spend a lot of time playing with Nathan. He can make you laugh (and cry) like nobody else can. You love to climb up on the mini-trampoline while he is jumping on it. He bounces you all around and you just laugh and laugh. It is so sweet. You seem to think that you are already a toddler, although your size would make it seem that way. You are just like your big brother, very tall and chunky!
8 months has come and gone and a year is right around the corner. You are growing and learning every day and it is a joy to watch you. I love you sweet Gavy.

Always,

Mama

Dear Kai,
It is September and you are 8 months old already! Time just flies by sometimes. It is still really hot outside, so we are all looking forward to cooler weather.

So many new things have happened this month. This has been your biggest month for leaps in development. You are now crawling! And you did it before Gavin this time! You normally like to learn things from him, but this time you taught him how to crawl. You are fast too! You can crawl the length of the house in no time. You look too tiny to be crawling. You are still my long and lean boy. If you didn't eat all the time, I would be worried because you are so little still! But you love food and love to nurse, so I think that you are getting enough. You are also pulling up to stand on furniture. It is amazing to see you standing up next to Gavin. You two like to "talk" back and forth, it is so sweet. You seem like such big boys when you do that. You also have two teeth now. And your sleep has really regressed. You are waking up all the time and we aren't sure why. Hopefully that changes soon. You have so much hair now. It is curly and thick and so cute! Because you are crawling around now, you are much more interested toys. Although you would rather eat paper. :) If there is a tiny piece of paper on the floor, you will find it! You love to play with blocks and in the dishwasher. You love cups and cables too.

You are getting so big, yet still seem so small. You will always be my little Kai-bear though. I love you so much!

Always,

Mama

I discovered your blog while I was doing research on IUIs...Your blog has inspired me and thanks for sharing your thoughts and accounts of your journey...We have been TTC for 2 years now and are currently starting our 5th IUI with Clomid. I hope that I share a similar story. Again, thanks for giving hope to those of us who are persistent.
