hi. i'm seven months old today.i'm pretty excited about things. things like Cheerios. sitting up. things like clapping. and yelling. i do a lot of yelling. not angry yelling, just loud, sometimes mildly creepy to my parents, yelling.
i'm also getting good at waving. i like to wave at whoever i see come into the room.
i really, really enjoy eating food i can put in my own mouth. but really, i'll put anything in my mouth. like toes, or pine cones, or the cat's tail. whatevs. it's all good to me. i like to use the two teeth i have. i've broken skin several times on mom. sometimes i bite my tongue. i cry a lot.
i was playing by a little girl at Ikea last week and my mom thought she was maybe a month older than me because she was crawling and a little smaller than me, but no, she was 2 weeks away from being 1. her parents exclaimed on my size. i think i'll be the tallest kid in my class someday.
i'm about 2 seconds away from crawling, which means it be at least a month. my sister was 8 months old when she crawled. she crawled and pulled herself up on stuff in the same month because my cousin Teagan came for a visit and showed her how to do all kinds of neat tricks. i would like it if Teagan's little sister Harper could come for a visit and show me how to do stuff. my mom would like it too i think.
mostly i'm the same guy i was the day i was born. pretty laid back. happy. regimented to the point of surprise on my parents' part. (really? a kid who is like clockwork? how did we land that?) curious about everything- it's just that i can get into almost everything now. not just watch it from afar. providing endless delight to my parents and sister.
i think i'm going to like month 7. there's a lot more stuff i can put into my mouth - i just know it.
