Most all the pictures I have from Valentine's I snapped with my phone so I'll share those later. But for us, it's definitely all about the kiddos. We give them little goodies and shower them with love and everything heart shaped all day. And they surprised me with cards and flowers!!
But I wanted to share the valentine's the kids picked to give to their friends at their little school parties.
Collins gave rubber ducks
Miller Kate gave applesauce
Sawyer and Graham both gave dinosaur erasers.
And we gave all their teachers Hershey kisses.
I'm a sucker for any day that promotes more love!! :))
Saw chose a bowling, laser tag, arcade party this year and it was a blast!!!
It was a super easy party to plan and it was so fun! He loved every minute and was so excited to be celebrating with his family and friends. It was mostly family and just a couple of his little buddies. It's been fun to watch birthday parties evolve as he's gotten older. We are definitely entering the friend stage and I love seeing him with his buddies!
You are 7 months old. Still a teeny tiny happy little peanut.
This is my favorite baby stage. You are sitting up really good and so smiley and happy! Grabbing your feet and starting to develop your little personality!
I would guess you weigh around 17 lbs and are around 27 inches tall. You are wearing 9 month clothes and size 4 diapers. You nurse 3 times a day and take 2 bottles while at daycare (around 7oz each). Nursing/eating about every 4 hours. You eat baby food at dinner time and are starting to get the hang of it! We've worked our way through most of the stage 1 foods.
You are still a really good sleeper! Although the past week or so has been a little rough. Mostly because you just got a new tooth on bottom and you have a little cold. But you typically take 2 long naps - morning and afternoon - about 2 hours each. You usually go to bed around 7:30pm. I usually scoop you up and feed you again around 10 and put you back down. You wake right around 6am. I still rock/nurse you to sleep every night and every nap time I'm with you too! It's my favorite!
You are still liking your paci. You like playing with it now and putting it in your mouth and pulling it out. You chew on everything you can get your hands on. You have 1 tooth on bottom. You jibber jabber all the time. You have said dada and mama in the middle of your jabbering. Maybe we'll go with mama as your first word. ;) Your hair is really starting to grow in and it's adorable how it sticks up everywhere!
You love to watch your siblings and they are constantly in your face loving on you and entertaining you! If you can see me you will cry until I come pick you up, which doesn't take long. But if I'm not in the room or your can't see me then you are content to play.
We are starting to transition you from the bassinet to your crib in the room you and Miller Kate will share. So far, we haven't had much luck. You both have had colds and haven't been sleeping as great as you normally do so you keep waking each other up. But we'll keep trying. I would be fine to keep you in our room forever but you are outgrowing the bassinet.
We love you so very much! And adore you and are constantly fighting over who gets to hold you and carry you and get your toys, etc.
Collins' has been eating baby food at night for about the past 3 weeks. She's starting to like it more. So far she has had apples, sweet potatoes, carrots, bananas, and oatmeal. It's still messy but she's getting the hang of it. She's a little stinker and loves to stick her tongue out so that makes it even more messy. :)
Of course we had to document her first (and 2nd time) eating. Pictures of her first taste by her admiring big brother, Sawyer. Enjoy! :))))
