7 Months Old

Well, this month has brought about big changes for you Alex.
You can crawl...well, a really good army crawl. You are now even more intrigued with the world and you must go and touch it! ALL of it! You don't stay still for long. You love to look upside down (especially when in my lap), roll around, kick, turn, climb over (yikes) and reeeeeach for everything! Still not sitting up on your own for long- cause you wont stop moving! :)

Your first tooth has FINALLY busted through!! Yea!! I will try to get a picture of it soon, but right now its just a white sliver. Here's to hoping that your horrible sleeping habits were due to teething (although, more teeth are on the way- does it ever end??!).

You love to laugh and especially when you get the tired sillies before bed. You will make yourself laugh now- on your own. I love it because I never know what little thing is gonna make you crack! And how could we not melt at that big sweet smile!

You know how to drink from a sippy cup. You love it! Its best if there is plenty of water in there so that you don't have to tip it very far back- but you are doing it! :) You like it way better than eating. That is still not a fave, but we are working on it.
You are riding in the umbrella stroller now and its soo great! You seem to like it and its great for shopping! I guess I should say Mom loves it too.
You are starting to be a little clingy...I can barely leave the room to use the restroom. You want me right next to you while you play. And if I am not there, you will scoot over to be near me! Who can complain? It feels great to be wanted! :)

On the mom front:
I had my first "obsessive crazy worried Mom" dream. Who knows why??? I dreamt that I was meeting with Alex's teacher (I don't know!) and she was telling me that Alex was the only one in his class that wasn't writing words- He only stamped all over his book. Are you kidding me?!! You just have to laugh!! :)

here's a shot for ya! yeah. :)
Let's try again, silly boy!
