This month-iversary snuck up on me. Wesley turned 7 months old on Saturday! I feel like I was just writing his six month update and now it's his seven month birthday! It's incredibly hard to believe that we're closer to his first birthday than we are his birth. It's a good thing I'm already planning his birthday party! :-)
You are growing into such a joyful little boy! You started on solid foods this month and are such a good eater. We've tried pears, apples, avocado, green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots, and bananas. We started out just with dinner and breakfast, but now you get lunch too. You're really eating well and we're loving sharing food with you. You are also still nursing or taking a bottle of breast milk at least 5 times a day.
You also started school this month. It's really daycare, but I call it school to make it sound more fun. You love it and your teachers love you. You are the most friendly baby in your class and we hear stories about teachers taking you with them to sit at the front desk during the day. We know you brighten their lives. It makes me sad to leave you, but thankful that daddy and I both love our jobs so much. I'm also thankful that you are well taken care of when we can't be with you.
You are the life of the party everywhere we go. People love talking to you and you will go to just about anyone. You love your church friends, especially the youth girls. We love passing you around while you explore, lift your eyebrows, and laugh. You are almost always happy and we really love being able to share your joy with others.
You've gotten incredibly mobile. You can definitely crawl, although you have your own special way of doing it. You like to straighten your legs with your behind in the air and crawl on your hands and feet. You like to use your head to propel yourself forward. You're starting to get the army crawl and one-leg-straight/one-leg-bent crawl down. You do a cross between rolling and crawling to get what you want.
Your daddy and I absolutely adore being your parents. We ask each other several times a week what we did to get so lucky. We are thankful that you're healthy and happy. You bring more happiness and joy to our lives than we ever thought possible. You have incredible comedic timing and make yourself laugh a lot. You laugh when other people laugh, which makes us think you're really smart.
Time has already gone by far too quickly. We often get excited about the future, wishing you could walk, talk, or cook with us. But I don't wish away this precious time. Your daddy and I try very hard to be present in this phase of life because it will be over far too quickly. We are having so much fun with you. It's amazing how complete you've made our family.
We love you!
Mama and Daddy
