Seven Months Old!

 My baby boy is seven months old and seeming bigger and bigger by the day. He's totally on the move with a dead-man drag crawl that enables him to scoot all around the house. He rocks on all fours and is started to get the hang of the actual crawling motion.  His sitting is very sturdy and he's figured out how to get himself in and out of the sitting position.
The boy loves food and tries to eat everything in sight. When I was at the pediatrician last week, I popped Graham on the scale and it said he weighed 18 pounds 12 ounces-- which would mean he's gained two pounds in the last month.
His belly laugh is the absolute best sound and makes my day. His gummy grin is adorable and he really is a happy, easy-going baby.  He is a wonderful napper and sweet snuggler too. Now if he would just start sleeping through the night...
Happy 7th months of life sweet baby G!

A Visit From "My Guys"

We've been lucky enough to have our friends Rachel, Jon and little Jordan Krisbergh visit from New York for a few days.  We've had so much fun and Olivia has taken to referring to them as "my guys."

Back to Ballet

Liv started a new session of ballet today and picked up right where she left off last spring.  She joyfully pranced around the room with her (slightly ridiculous) new headband that she picked out special for class. She even ended the class with a hug and kiss to her teacher Miss Megan.

Photo of the Week

Observation #1: Sam as a baby does resemble Graham.
Observation #2: Why is baby Sam's head floating and looking over baby Sam? Odd.

Gettin' Around

Graham has mastered the dead-man crawl in the past few days and now literally can drag himself all the way across a room when he sees something he wants.  Very impressive (and now let the re-baby proofing begin!).

Michigan Vacation: Best of the Rest

We've had a fantastic family vacation and I've loved every minute of the time with my littles and hubby.  This is the first time Sam has taken five consecutive days off work since he started his current job, so it was a well earned trip.  Hopefully we will be able to make a tradition of spending a full week at the lake each summer!
