It won't be long now...

Ok, so I SINCERELY apologize for not writing an update sooner... Things around here have been crazy lately and I honestly just haven't had the time! Student teaching and my little man are both keeping me very, very busy...

Here are some pictures from:
I took Logan in for his 9-month check-up on September 11th and everything went really well. And I don't know if you can tell in the above picture, but Logan has two teeth now :) He's completely healthy and happy, and here are his new stats:
  • Height: 29 inches (75th percentile)
  • Weight: 20 lb 8 oz (50th percentile)
Our little man had a bit of a growth spurt since his 6-month check-up! He's already wearing 12-month clothing now. Oh, and he's mobile too! Most of what I do when he's awake is chase him around the living room and keep him out of trouble. He's a quick little crawler, and a very good cruiser (he'll walk along holding onto the coffee table or furniture or whatever's available). He's not quite walking all on his own yet, but he's very close!

I've finished my second week of student teaching now and I absolutely love it! I now know that teaching is my true calling. My mentor teacher even told me that I have a natural ability :) I'm still getting to know the students, and I've gotten to teach a couple of lessons too. The only thing that could make the whole experience better would be if I could get paid to do it - but that'll happen soon enough. If I'm lucky, maybe I'll get to start teaching full-time in the spring. At least by then I'll be fully certified :)

Logan's up from his nap, so back to mommy-ing! I can't believe September is almost over - thank goodness the time's flying by! Eric will be home before too much longer :) Take care, everyone!
