Grandma and I took Nathan to see Santa today! He didn't cry at all! Although we couldn't get him to smile to save our lives. What you don't see in this picture is my mom and I jumping around behind the photographer like crazy people. Oh well!
Today you are seven months old!! This is such a bittersweet day for mama. One year ago today was Noel's due date. Although I know now that she just wasn't meant to come to us yet. I really think that you wanted to be first. And I can't imagine not having you in my life.
You have grown so much! You are still around 21 pounds but I know that you are growing taller. You can sit up for much longer periods of time before falling over. You just get distracted by something behind you and try to reach for it. Mama has learned to surround you with pillows! You have became increasingly frustrated with crawling. You are getting so close! Mama and Daddy work with you every day to try to help you. You will get it soon! This past month has been full of adventures! We took a car trip to Chicago with Daddy. You did so well in the car. Although Mama had to prop herself over the carseat to nurse you while we were driving! That was a funny sight to see. You also had your first Thanksgiving! This month will be equally busy with Christmas coming up. We have so many places to go and people to see. I am sure that you will do great! We have given you some solid foods this past month. Although you aren't really interested. You don't like anything except apple slices. You love to suck and gnaw on those. You would just much rather nurse. Which is fine by me! You are still yelling "dada" all the time. It is so cute. Daddy gets a big smile on his face everytime.
Well sweet boy. You are now closer to your 1st birthday than your birth. You are growing and changing every day. You are the center of my world and I love you so very much. Happy seven months, my darling son.
