That's How I Roll

Since shortly after Brett turned 6 months his new mode of transportation is rolling. At 5 months he learned to roll from his belly to his back; then after 6 months he learned how to roll back onto his belly...then he got faster. And now he can roll continuously. He prefers to sit up and play most of the time now, but when he does play laying down it's not uncommon for him to roll up against the furniture. Then he looks surprised when he looks up and sees that he is so far away from all his toys!

How did you get over there?!

The Best 7 Months Ever

Brett turned SEVEN months old on the 6th. I can't believe this sweet baby has been with us and blessed us for seven months already. He brightens and brings so much joy to each and every one of our days. When I drop him off at daycare in the mornings I can hardly wait to see that little face again!

Here's our boy on his one month birthday...

And here he is on his 7 month birthday (same bear).

Table Manners

So we finally got the little mister a high chair a few weeks ago. We love it. A designated "this is where you eat" spot. We started off using the bumbo chair/tray and the bouncy seat, but it was high time little man starts learning to eat at the "table". He loves it too. Lately he has been patting things with his hands. He loves the noise it makes when he pats his hands on his high chair tray. He also pats his toys, my leg, my arms.... He also likes to try and reach for the bowl and spoon. The other day I turned my head for like a milisecond and he flipped the spoon, sending sweet potatoes flying through the air, landing on his forhead, in his hair, even on the carpet. It took me a little while to locate the spoon. Little man is also learning how to drink juice once in a while from a sippy cup. Sometimes we offer his formula in it because for some reason he's not alway fond of the regular bottle since he's been teething.

Somebody should teach this young man not to put his feet on the table....

One of Brett's new tricks--what a big boy! I guess we are now one step closer to mobility--yikes! Time to start thinking about baby proofing the house?

The past month or so has been full of major milestones...we've noticed that it seems like things are starting to happen very quickly now. All of a sudden he knows more, understands more, and can do more...In the past couple weeks Brett has started to be able to sit up all by himself. Not for very long, but he's getting better every day. He weebles and he wobbles sometimes, but we make sure we catch him before he falls down!

Now that he can sit up and is getting this whole new fun view of his world, he sometimes doesn't think it's near as much fun to lay down anymore. He loves to sit.

I'm having so much fun sitting on the floor and playing with my little boy!
