Look at me! I'm a big boy!!!

Malachi is growing and changing so much and almost on a daily basis! He is slimming down as he crawls and explores throughout the day. He doesn't sit still for any amount of time unless he hears a song he likes.

His newest skill is that he pulls himself up on EVERYTHING! The cutest thing is that he pulls himself up on his new toy and then dances to the music, it definitely cracks mommy and daddy up! Along with this new skill comes a lot of tumbling and head hitting. Mommy is trying to toughen up, but I swear my heart skips a beat every time I see him fall. This new skill has also opened up a whole new realm of possibility for Mr. Malachi and a whole new level of baby proofing for mom and dad. No more setting things on the couch as the couch level is now within Malachi's reach! He is also really close to cruising using the couches, and I am sure before we know it he will be taking those first big steps. Our baby is growing up so fast!

Another big milestone we are passing is that Malachi has now been with us just as long as he was waiting for us! It makes my heart so happy to pass this milestone! We picked him up right before he turned 4 months old and he has already been home for almost 4 months. Time sure is flying and we are so thrilled and so thankful to have him in our lives!!!

Joanna isn't pulling herself up yet, but loves to scoot across the floor- not crawl, but sit up and scoot. Too cute. Of course she is finding everything she can reach and eating it- yikes!!!

Love to see the new pic of Malachi!!! He is so handsome :) He and Joanna are within a month of each other :) Hmmmm......???
