happy happy seven months!

Where has the time gone? Our precious boy is 7 months old today. That seems so much older than 6 months.

His monkey shoes are almost too small.
I asked Silas what he would like to say to commemorate his seven month mark.

He said,

"Put me to bed, Mom." Just not in so many words.

Silas, at 7 months you are:

  • Rolling over from back to front. In fact you won't stay on your back. You roll to your tummy and babble and drool up a storm.

  • Blowing raspberries...this happened today and you were proud.

  • Laughing your head off. When you are on your tummy and I say, "da da da da da", you think it's really hilarious and you laugh and laugh. Usually we sit on the couch after your afternoon nap and bottle and just laugh with each other.

  • Putting everything in your mouth. Where are those teeth?

  • Eating lots of yummy things like green beans, sweet peas, sweet potatoes, carrots, apples/peaches and oatmeal. For a minute there we were afraid you would turn into a carrot.

  • Sleeping so much better. You usually wake yourself up about an hour into your nap, but a quick pacifier re-insert and you're back to dream land. Most nights you sleep through the night and Mommy and Daddy really appreciate it.

  • Taking your pacifier out of your mouth and putting it back in.

  • Too cute for words.

  • About to live on a third continent in your first seven months.

  • A source of joy and delight!

We love you, sweet boy!

Jill, I saw this and thought of you!

Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture had a different hair color than the other members. One of her students suggested that he was adopted.

A little girl said, "I know all about adoption, I was adopted.."

"What does it mean to be adopted?", asked another child "It means", said the girl, "that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!"
