7 months old today!
You’ve done so many new things yet there are so many more things you want, and one day will be able, to do. You want to stand alone so badly. I catch you in the middle of the room trying to push your self up off the floor… You look like you’re doing yoga. J
Since Simone left Alysha Lykins has been watching you. At first you would NOT let Allen put you down. You have tons of fun there. Ella gets mad when I come to pick you up and Paul gets mad the days you aren’t there. I’m really glad we found someone we know and trust to take care of you while mommy’s at work.
We went to Las Vegas at the beginning of August to visit Grandma and Simone and you finally met 2 of your uncles. You did great on the car ride! The only time you really cried was when we were almost home! There was a little piano at the house we stayed at and you just loved it. While we were there you crawled on your knees for the first time!
Sometimes you do this little walking crawl thing with one foot on the ground. The house has been baby proofed all though we still need gates for the stairs. You still love your jumper, but you haven’t been in your swing for about 2 months! (Note to self take that down.) I got you a little table to stand at and even when the legs are off you try to stand at it! You stand on mom, you stand on dad, and you stand on pretty much whatever you can. You just love to stand! You think you are the biggest boy already! You crawl, you stand, you hold on to thing with one hand!
We got a doggy for daddy’s birthday. He is a German shepherd. We named him Chaos partly because he is very ‘excitable’, but mainly because it’s the only thing we could remotely agree upon. When you see him you get really excited, but we don’t let him get to close because he doesn’t know not to ‘nibble’ and we don’t want you getting bitten!
I think your teething again. L You’re drooling, you have a runny nose, and you’re BITING everything, the works. You seem to only like biting mommy. You bite my shoulder, my knee, whatever is near you, you will bite.
Every day you do something new. I can’t believe how much you’ve changed and grown in just 7 months. You’re just going to keep on changing, but only for the better.
Love you Buddha Belly.
