7 months already-

Well I guess I am going to be one of those moms- and blab about how fast the past month has flown by- but FOR REAL- it has- and it's crazy, and stressful, and fun, and wild, and scary and I love it!

SIZE: Still wearing some of his 3 month stuff- but definetly fitting into more 6 month stuff. I am sure he is weighing over 15 lbs- and after I work out- I am pretty sure he's weighing in at around 100 lbs-
He's still small- and that's alright with me- I am sure he will grow up waaay too fast anyhow! We went to the park- and tried to swing- but we don't quite fit in one yet-

NEW MOVES: Lots of new moves this time around- so let me break them down for you:
Scooting- this is where he puts his arms out as far as they will go- then he inches his legs up to where his arms are, then does this all again. AKA- the inch worm crawl. (see video)
Booty scooting- this is when he sits up and scoots across the floor, reaches out his little legs, and then scoots his booty up to them.
The Plank/Downward dog- I am sure these are both steps that are on the way to the "real" crawl- but it's pretty funny to watch Kash get in yoga poses. Sometimes it looks like he is trying to do push-ups- LOL!
Pulling up- yup. He's trying to pull up on just about every and anything he can grab a hold of- look out- we have a wild one!
Belly to Butt- he can go from his belly to a sitting postion, and from a sitting position back to his belly- he will sometimes use this move to inch across the floor

YUMMY FOODS: so far we have tried and LIKED- sweet potatos, butternut squash, baked pears, baked apples. (I actually made all these myself!)
At school they did some painting with chocolate pudding and somehow some ended up in Kash's mouth- I don't think he was too upset about that....
NOT liking so much- puffs- he throws them up- gross. Bananas, well real bananas, he's not too crazy about. I think it's the texture because he did like bananas that were out of the baby food pouch. Next week we will be trying peas and green beans and baked peaches- yumm!

SLEEPING: in the pack and play- in our room. I know I know I know- enough said- but you know what??? he will be moving into his room soon. Our goal is when the kids go back to school- Kash will go upstairs. So that's already only like a week a way- yikes!

WORDS: Mama- of course I would love to tell you that everytime he sees me- he yells out Mama! but that's just not true- he does say mamamamama a lot- and just recently he has started with his "B" sounds. babababababa-

BEST MOMENTS:We went to the lake with friends and Kash discovered his tongue- too cute. He kept poking it out and trying to copy Daddy with tongue wiggles- haha! We had lots of excitement with Papa visiting- it was Ciara's 12 birthday and then Nanny, Aunt Ang and Cousin River also came for a visit- that was so fun. I can't wait for Kash to get a little bit more mobile so him and River can run around together. We had a great time. Lots of laughing-

FAVORITE THINGS: He is loving bath time- or any water time for that matter. He likes to splish and splash all over the place. He really likes playing with his soap bottle- like- really likes it- like likes it soooo much that there is a small meltdown when you take it away. (ok- I know I just said like to many times- but you got the point)

No teeth yet- although I can feel those little teeth buds just buldging in his gums. He ran a small fever today- and I am pretty sure it's from teething- so my little toothless grin won't last much longer. boooooo


  1. OMG I just adore him so!! This is such a fun, fun age!

  2. I love that picture of him in the swing - too cute!
