Def: Blink

blink  (blngk)
v. blinked, blink·ing, blinks
1. To close and open one or both of the eyes rapidly.
2. To look through half-closed eyes, as in a bright glare; squint.
3. To shine with intermittent gleams; flash on and off.
a. To be startled or dismayed.
b. To waver or back down, as in a contest of wills: "This was the first genuine, direct confrontation between this administration and the Soviets. It was the U.S.A. that blinked" (Zbigniew Brzezinski).
5. To look with feigned ignorance

6. The amount of time it takes your baby to go from this

to this.

No really, she did it the same week. I thought there would be a month or two of crawling before the standing kicked in. Nope. She did it the same week, I've just been chasing her for a month before managing to snap a picture. She pulls herself up onto anything these days.


I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that this is my life. I feel like I'm babysitting instead of being the mom. Now that she is pushing 8 months, I guess I can't use the "I just had a baby" excuse anymore either. Please excuse me while I turn into a motherhood cliche and cry about how my baby is growing up so fast. *sob sob sob* Have a*sniff* happy *sniff* weekend.

I felt like motherhood wasn't real for the LONGEST time. I kept feeling like one day someone would show up, and thank me for taking care of A&L as they took them away. I'm not really sure when that went away...a year maybe?

I can't believe she's so active! Eli just learned to crawl and standing is far in our future, I think. I hope he doesn't take till 16 months to walk like his brother and sister. My back and arms are already screaming for a break from carrying him.

It is a mother cliche, but it is sad when they grow up. But it's exciting too.
