Happy 7 Months!

Dear Noah,

Happy Birthday! You have changed so very much over the past 7 months. I thought I would take this opportunity to tell you about some of your accomplishments this month. You do so many amazing things, I know I won't remember them all when you ask me about them. So, here are some highlights from month 6.

-Started drinking from a sippy cup.
-Still love oatmeal (You can eat two bowls each sitting and still want more!)
-Scrunch your nose like a pig and snort. It is so cute.
-Talk a lot and love to show your bottom gums while doing so.
-Tried all veggies and most fruits. You are not a fan of any of them. Each time we try to feed you, you stick your tongue way out and make silly faces for the first few bites. It makes us laugh so hard, I think you do it just for that reason.
-Love animals, any kind. If given the opportunity to pet them, you giggle uncontrollably. It is absolutely contagious.
-Still love to jump, therefore you have very strong legs.
-Have mastered rolling over both ways and either side.

-Cry if something is taken from you.
-Are trying to crawl, which looks like you are swimming on the carpet.
-Reach for things, especially people you know.
-Are very ticklish and love to be tickled. It makes you laugh, a lot.
-Are sitting up and can balance well. You can play with toys and not fall over.
-Get up at least once during the night to eat, but you are such a great sleeper. You sleep about 11 hours at night and 3 naps during the day.

As you can see, you have accomplished so much. What a joy to be along side you and watch you discover all the things that life has to offer. I think the song that I sing to you every night will always describe how I feel about you:
I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be
(This song came from my favorite book as a kid, "I'll love you forever.")
Here's to another adventurous month!
