Jack is 8 Months!

Last week, Jack turned 8 months old.  I'd like to wonder where the time is going, but unfortunately I know.  I get sad when I think about how much time of Jack's infancy I have missed and how much more I will miss over the next few months.  Honestly, it's just not fair.  To either of us.  I told Erik the other day that if our fate had been different I would want another baby.  It would be very hard to make that decision now though.  The threat of Lucy's cancer will be with us for the rest of our lives.  I beg God daily that she will go into complete and total remission for the rest of her long, long life.  And while I believe that will be the case, there are no guarantees.  I could not risk having another child and dealing with the "what ifs." 

So, with that being said, we are just loving this baby to bits every single day.  His cheeks are bound to be raw from all the kissing I do!  And believe me when I say he is into everything.  I am exhausted by the day's end from just chasing him around the house.  He moves constantly.  His toes, his fingers.  Everything moves, all the time! 

I am so grateful for this time I have at home with him.  I truly cherish every minute with him.  Look at how he's grown...

I love you my sweet Jon Keller!  You are the light of my life.

  1. Wow..time flies!! My daughter is 9 months old, and I ask myself that same question everyday!! I LOVE the month-to-month stickers; we do those with Tatelyn too!!!

    By the way, my sister-in-law and I (the Memphis girls that got lost on the way to the race) did some major damage at the Freckled Frog after the 5K. Oh my; I absolutely love that store. I definitely see a trip back to Covington in my future!!

    So glad you have had an uneventful couple of days! Boring is good!!! Praying for more "boring" days in your future. Loved the pictures of Lucy playing the video game! Her smile brightens my day!!

  2. He is just precious. I met my friend's 1 month old today for the first time. I could have cuddled him for hours if she let me.

    Just wanted to pass this video on to you. I don't know if you watched the Celebrity Apprentice but Marlee Matlin and John Rich did a song for the kids of St. Jude along with a school for the deaf. It was amazing. http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=2033834721472&oid=43959439932&comments

  3. Someday another baby might feel right! Isn't life full of "what ifs" anyway??

  4. Beautiful baby boy. God has blessed you and will continue to bless you. I have been praying for Lucy.

  5. I would love to know where you get those adorable shirts with the numbers on them...I am a foster mom and keep scrapbooks for each of my little ones...it would be great for me to be able to capture each month like that! Your baby is so adorable!!

  6. He is by far one of the cutest, most adorable baby boys I have ever seen!!!
    I have a feeling his smile and cheeks are what get you through some of the tougher days...what an angel....enjoy enjoy enjoy!!
