Z at Seven Months - A look back
...in seven and a half months. Madness I say.
This little man is heck on wheels. The first day I met him...
...he was eyes wide open. He spent a few months on and off tummy time...
...and rolled over shortly thereafter. Crawling came four months later...
...but the shock to me was that he was sitting up one Tuesday, crawling that Thursday and now has taken to standing on things. We found him trying to climb out of his crib. Mo caught him trying to eat the toilet plunger (Full story on Mo's Blog). He really wants to walk, but just doesn't know how. So, standing will do for now.
He's a joy each day and I'm blessed beyond comprehension to know this guy.
Lessons learned at Seven Months
Anything two feet off the floor or below will be put in the mouth. This includes peas from last week found in a corner as well as bugs and dust. At least the latter two are protein.
Baby's are as surprised as I am when they poop without warning. Has there been an earthquake?
Other people's babys are cute, but they are scary, fragile, and often smell bad. YOUR baby, on the other hand, smells like roses all the time and can be thrown around like a sack of potatoes to peals of laughter and giggles.
When your baby isn't quite a crawler but definitely not a toddler, he's a wobbler.
Nothings better in this world than the look of recognition your baby gets on his face when you come home from work and he gets that look that says "Hey! It's that guy again, he's back! Woohoo! He's hilarious!"
Water and the laws of physics in general may not be consistent, so we'll need to test them over and over and over again. Will the spoon fall this time? Wow, it did. I wonder now?
There's only 365 days in this first year. Squeeze every one of them.
And now back to the technology...
