Seven Months

Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Shut the front door. Where did six months go?!

 Someone asked me at the library this morning how old my boy is and I replied quickly, "Six months...wait...(cue the calender popping up in my mind), he's seven months, yeah, seven months." 

Seriously, how do mama's get these beautiful pictures of their babies to put on their blogs? I got lucky with the one above, really most of my pictures look like this ("give me that camera! Omnomnom. I'm going to eat it!"): 

 Or this..."Shaeeeee, show me your me your teeth sweetheart..."

Yeah, no. I will NOT show you my teeth mother. Noooo way.

I guess I'm just not as patient and persistent as the rest. I mean, did you notice that he's only smiling in ONE of the pictures I put up last month in his month-to-month comparison? Ain't nobody got time for that.

Okay, enough of my difficult-baby-photo-smile drama.

At seven months Shae:

~Is all over the place! The kid has the army crawl DOWN. Down I tell you. He knows what he's doing. We wonder if he might just skip the knee crawl all together.

~Loves to climb/pull himself up on things. (Lay me or Darin on the floor for him to climb and the boy is happy). Here's proof:

~Eats anything and everything that we give him. Although still trying to figure out how to get things in his mouth on his own. So far he's figured out that if he sticks his entire hand in his mouth, whatever he is gripping onto has to get in somehow. 

~Has two little teeth.

~New favorite toys include: Bowls, spoons and the Clavinova that grandma and grandpa are letting us borrow.

~Total three a day napper. He can't live without em'.

~Night time sleep is the best it's been. Most nights only wakes up about twice (I say only because this really is a good thing for us).

~Is a total morning person. And by morning, I mean MOR-NING. Five o'clock. Every. Day. He'd be up and about playing if we'd let him (the fact is, WE aren't ready to wake up yet so he just has to wait an hour).

And there you have it, the Shaesternator at seven months.


  1. Oh, Brillante! These are just cute as can be! He is adorable!!! I love seeing them and thanks for posting so I can!
    Love you, Me, Jane

  2. Oh my gosh! I love him and miss him so dang much! Obviously I miss you and Darin too, but I mean, come on! He is such a doll.

  3. This reminds me of when you guys were little - climbing on daddy, playing in the laundry basket, loving the Clavinova. He is too cute!
