You turned 7 months old today and what a happy little 7 month old you are. There isn't much to report on the "milestones" front this month. We're beginning to think you may skip crawling all together and go right to walking. You are more interested in trying to pull up on things than you are in figuring out how to crawl. You can almost pull yourself up from a sitting position onto furniture by yourself. But of course, since you can't crawl, someone has to put you in front of said piece of furniture. I have to admit, I'm kind of glad you aren't crawling yet. Given your brothers love tiny toys (namely, Legos!) its nice to know that when I put you down somewhere, you're not going to find your way to a choking hazard. I'm a little panicked about the day that is no longer true!
The one milestone you did hit this month was you got your first and second teeth! You gnaw on pretty much anything but generally are still a very happy baby despite teething. You wake a little more at night these days, but, other than that, we really wouldn't know you were teething.
You continue to be a very vocal little guy. You are very adept at communicating your displeasure with any situation. You have a cute little grunt that you make anytime something makes you unhappy. Such as, someone takes something from you, I try to feed you something you don't want, Ryan gets a little too generous with his hugs, etc. But more often than not, you can be found squealing, quite loudly, in delight. Sometimes it sounds like a yell, but its always very clear that it is a happy noise, mostly from the huge smile on your face.
You love your Mommy and Daddy so much. You give HUGE smiles to Daddy when he comes home from work. And the same for Mommy anytime you see her when she has been out of sight for more than 5 seconds. But, Ryan still earns your biggest smiles. You laugh at almost anything he does. He of course finds this FANTASTIC and takes your laughter as permission to do more of whatever made you laugh. He has yet to fully understand that you will laugh at most anything he does, even something he isn't supposed to do. You clearly know who Ryan is, and anytime I say, "Where's Ryan!?" You frantically look around for him, and smile broadly as soon as you find him. It is so much fun to watch your relationship developing already.
You're a happy, joyful, determined, playful, and seemingly out-going little guy. We can't wait to watch you grow more and more. I am so proud to be your Mommy!

Happy 7-month day!
