7 months old!

My little man is 7 months old already. Wow. I know I say this every month, how time has just flown by, but it never ceases to amaze me how quickly time flies as you get older and have kids.

My favorite little man is doing well. He is such a happy and smily baby-just like his big sister was. Let me tell you how thrilled this makes me because I just assumed we wouldn't luck out in this area twice. It's so nice to be able to take him to Sydney's gymnastics, put down a blanket and a few toys and watch him play independently for 45 minutes. But when he starts crawling...oh boy.

He is rolling all over, scooting and it looks like he'll be crawling within the next month. He is my active little guy and I am just amazed at how quickly he gets into things. He has been sleeping really well. He is sleeping through his 5am feeding now and sleeps from about 7-8pm until about 7-8am. That makes me very happy. I took him for haircut number three yesterday since I have been calling his hair a "bouffant." The little guy has some big hair going on, I am amazed at how thick it is on top. He looks so cute with his "little man" cut. He also loves bath time. We now bathe Sydney and Alex together and they both love it. Alex just splashes, kicks and goes after toys the whole time. Sydney just thinks it's the coolest to have little bro in the bathtub with her.

He has been eating finger foods the past couple of weeks-Cheerios, Gerber Puffs and yogurt melts. I also tried some noodles on him and he definitely enjoyed those. He is also a big fan of the fruit-peaches, pears, apples, mangoes, plums, nectarines-you name it, he loves it. Although I have a feeling there aren't many foods he won't eat. So far peas are not a fave. And he does already eat more than his nearly four year old sister-I give it six months until he outweighs her.

I just love this little guy so much. His little belly laugh when you tickle his neck and belly, the way he lights up when he sees Anthony, Sydney or I. The way he just looks up to Sydney, watching her and smiling-you can tell he just can't wait to be running around with her. He just adores her. And his little flirtations with the ladies-smiling, then burying his face into my shoulder, and then smiling again. So cute. I am the luckiest to have such amazing kids.

Adorableness beyond comparison! Well, except with maybe my little bundle of adorableness. Annika started crawling this week. It's a whole new world. You're so blessed with such two great kids! We're scared about the next one that may come down the line for us...the first one has been such a joy.
