8 months!

WHEW!  This was a busy month!  Connor is 8 months old and I am loving every minute of being a mom.  He has really changed me for the better and I am looking forward to all the adventures we will have as a family.  Connor's personality has started to emerge.  He is independent, easy going (like his daddy) and seems to have a good sense of humor.  I can always get a big, loud laugh when he is tickled and he even laughs at my horrible dancing.  I think he knows that it is horrible but he likes it anyways.
Connor plays really, really well.  Whether it is at daycare with other kids or all by himself he stays busy playing for long periods of time.  He has started playing with a few new toys that make noises or play songs and he LOVES them!  I love watching his face light up when he makes a song play.  We go to the park up the street a few times a week and he likes to swing and play on a blanket on the grass.
Our babysitter took a couple weeks off so I have been able to be at home with him more the past two weeks and have really enjoyed our time together.  My mom came to watch him for a couple days while I worked and they had a blast!  Trips to Target, HEB and the park kept them both busy!
I took Connor to Tallahasse, FL to attend my cousin Emmy's wedding.  It was a beautiful wedding and  Emmy and Ryan are two of the cutest lovebirds I have ever seen!  We got to spend time with a lot of my huge family and everyone got to love on the little guy.  He once again did great flying, even with a layover and a last minute re-routing of flights due to weather delays. In other BIG news this month, Anthony finished a IRONMAN triathlon.  He swam 2.4 miles, rode 112 miles and ran 26.2 miles.  I am so proud of him and all the hard work he put into training to properly prepare for the race.  It was a blistering 90 degrees out during the run but it didn't stop our ironman, he finished with a great time and in good spirits!  He has come quite a ways from open-heart surgery and barely being able to walk 1/2 a mile to an Ironman in 14 months.  Connor is lucky to have such a great role model as a father.  Anthony also started a new job this month which he really enjoys.  He is a landman for small oil and gas company in Houston.
