7 Months!

Wow Baby! You are 7 Months old!

You LOVE watermelon (the rind). Your Daddy made the mistake of eating a piece in front of you tonight and you couldn't take your eyes off of him. Blueberry-banana, avocado, squash from Uncle Derele's farm, sweet potatoes, all your usual favorites, don't have a chance if watermelon is near by!

You sit so well. In fact your Daddy and I marvel at how we can sit you on the carpet (with a few pillows just in case) with your toy bucket close and how you can play by yourself for so long. You may not nap but you love to pick each one of your yous out of the bucket and have a good long look/play with each one. You use both hands to pick up toys and can move a toy from one hand to the other. EVERYTHING goes in your mouth. Sorry Spiderman.

You wave. I must video the wave soon. It melts my heart. Your one little arm flapping up and down with such excitement.

You had your shots last week and were a champ. Barely a whimper and fine for the rest of the day.

You could watch your big brother for days. Your eyes follow him every where possible and when you are in a different room you perk up if you hear his voice. You laugh a full out belly laugh at his silly dances.

You still are up 2-3 times a night. Ugg. You like to eat......85th percentile you like to eat so much.

I will be leaving you twice a week for 3 hours starting soon while I help others learn about the importance of health safety and nutrition of children. It is going to be soooo hard to be away from you even though you will be in the best hands I know. (thanks Dad).

You are seven months old. I tell you each day how much I love you and how lucky I am to be your Mommy. You are so special and sweet and easy going, just like your Daddy.
