Seven months old



No one was injured in the making of these pictures....but oh, holy cow! Our monthly picture-taking session just got a lot more challenging! Trying to take pictures of a wiggly worm little boy is not so easy. See pictures below for proof! Matt and I say he has infant-onset ADHD. He is so concerned with everything going on around him--the dogs, the rain, the monkey, toys, etc--that it is practically impossible to get him to look at the camera. The other challenge is getting him to eat. I have to use the sneak-attack method to get food in this kid's mouth!

*Speaking of food, here are foods he is eating: butternut squash, carrots, peaches, avacado, sweet potato, apple sauce, frozen grapes (his fave), french fries. Oops! Did I say french fries? Ok, I'm that mom that gave her kid a french fry to keep him quiet in a restaurant. He's still breathing....

*On his seven month birthday he decided he could talk. He's just been babbling away...."mamamama, dadadadada, babababa". He will occasionally wave and say "byebye". I'm not sure how much he understands but it's very cute...especially since he waves backwards.

*This may be our last photo session with a big gummy smile. Well, not that he smiles very often for the camera anyway, but.....he has FOUR top, front teeth coming in! His gums are SO swollen!

*He is sitting up like a champ, rolling, squirming, and bouncing in his jumper, but no crawling yet. I really think he may walk before he crawls.

*He loves pulling his "pup sisters'" ears and they are so good with him. I heard Paisley wimpering the other day. When I looked down, Zane had an ear in each hand and had her head turned upside down! Poor pup!

*He will now sit in his high chair for 10 or 15 minutes while I make coffee, load the dishwasher, etc. Ya'll.....10 or 15 minutes with this kid is an ETERNITY!

What I go through to get a good shot:




Finally!

Oh, what a little man! I know what you mean about not being able to be still. Sarah, just wait till he starts crawling. Then it becomes really fun :) Looks like ya'll are doing great!

The pictures of your little wiggle worm are the best! I am with you on how hard it is to get the kid to hold still and look at the camera these days. You would think with all the practice he has had over the last 7 months he would be used it...guess not! Love those cheeks!!!
