7 months!

During the past month, Grayson...

  • Grew to 17.5 pounds and 27 inches long
  • Helped thank our wonderful neighbors with a Dreyer's Neighborhood ice cream party!
  • Started eating rice cereal if it's mixed very thick with pureed fruits and veggies - Hallelujah!
  • Went to Lagoon (but didn't get to do any rides)
  • Started waking between 3-5am for an early-morning snack (no more sleeping through the night - so sad!)
  • Sits up on his own if I put him there, but cannot pull himself into a sitting position on his own
  • Helped Mommy 'trim' the ficus tree
  • Started chanting a mix of "Ba-bah-buh" when he talks
  • Started crawling!
My mother made it very clear that even though Grayson's been making crawling motions for weeks now, his first real-life crawl was at HER house just a few days ago. (We determined that real-life crawling involved Grayson moving his hands and knees rhythmically in order to propel himself forward.) Here's your video, Grandma:

And in other news, "Happy Anniversary" babe. I have to say that our third year of marriage has been my favorite so far. Love ya!

Congratulations to the little squirt for crawling!

I was sorry to have missed the ice cream party. Believe, I was thinking of you guys from 600 miles away.

I have a hard time feeling sorry for your sleep interruption. I WISH Lincoln only woke up once! He wakes up every two hours, at the most, and stays awake for like 45 mins during the 5am one. I'm always tired.
