Reed turned 7 months old on Tuesday. I can't believe it's been 7 months since we became a family of three! It's hard to even think about what we did before Reed came along. He's hands-down the best entertainment ever. SUCH a little ham! He now enjoys sitting on the floor (unassisted!) surrounded by all his toys, chewing on anything and everything, eating anything but peas, and playing in the bath (and taking a leak on the bathroom floor afterwards...can't ever seem to get that diaper on quick enough). He hates taking naps (unless he's being held!), being on his tummy, and did I mention he hates taking naps? Holy crap, this kid hates taking naps. We're working on it.
Here's a conversation I had with him today...
"Oh come on! Say MAMA!"
Seriously. This kid is killin' me! Later in the day, he was on the floor playing with his toys, and I was
checking my facebook folding laundry and I heard him whispering "dadadada..." to his toys. Chad is thrilled even though we know he's too young to associate "dada" with his dada. Reed says "Mamamamama" too, but it seems like that slips out only when he's pissed off. Real nice.
I take lots of pictures of our handsome boy. I post a LOT of pictures on facebook. I even annoy myself with all the face-time this baby gets on my facebook. Yep, I've become one of those moms that I always rolled my eyes at before becoming a mom myself. The biggest lesson I've learned in the last 7 months? Never say never.
Speaking of pictures...
And he's cutting his top middle teeth, which I think causes us to see THIS face a lot. It cracks me up every time.
And now I only have 5 months to plan his birthday party!!!
