Best Friends

 Drew absolutely loves Sutton.  When Sutton is in the mood or distracted he let's Drew play with him.  Here are some pictures from the past two nights.  I have a feeling these two are going to be "Best Friends" one day. 

Tonight Drew found Sutton's tail and couldn't stop playing with it.  It was hitting him in the face and he was just laughing.  Of course we gave Drew a good washing after this!

7 months!


Drew is 7 months old!  Yes, this is four days late and this is the first time that I didn't take his picture on the actual date.  I kept telling myself that it didn't really matter but deep down it bugs me.  Anyways, we have been busy chasing Drew around and keeping our eye on him at all times.  I have to say the end of 6 months and moving into 7 months has been fun. 

What's New: Drew is crawling and pulling up.  He just started this a few days before he turned 7 months old.  He has been moving his knee three times and then sitting but now he keeps moving.  He is also sitting up very well.  I love how I can just put him in the floor and quickly run to another room for something and come back and he's content, playing, and hasn't fallen over.  He's also twisting.  He has always been a twister but now when I go to change his diaper, he twists.  He would rather look at the picture on his wall, which he has taken off a few times, so he twists.  I have told him a few times "when you are ready to have your diaper back on just let me know".  :)  He has no clue what I am saying but I can't put it on when he's in a crawling motion just smiling at me. He also has two bottom teeth!  I decided to check his gums  (I do that every now and then to see if anything is there) on New Year's day and sure enough there were two bottom teeth coming in. Thankfully he hadn't been giving off any signs that he was teething that I have heard about.  He has just been his happy self.

Interests:  I could just say EVERYTHING and that would cover it!  He is curious as any little one.  He loves cords.  I know, not good.  We have hid all the ones we know about but he seems to find more.  He also loves my cell phone.  I gave him an old cell phone of mine but that wasn't the same thing and he knew it.  Jason said he has been staring at yours for 6 months and now he wants it.  He gets excited about a remote control too.  He has changed a channel or two with his mouth.  He also loves our dog's paws.  Of course they don't love this but at times tolerates it.  He just smiles real big and puts his hand on it.  He goes for anything that looks interesting and tries to get it.  His favorite activity is his wagon.  Sometimes I just put him in it to sit.  We go for walks when the weather is nice.  When the wagon stops, he bounces to keep going!

Food: He has tried many new foods and has his opinion on some.  He currently eats rice cereal, oatmeal, bananas, prunes, carrots, pears, apples, sweet potatoes, peas, green beans, avocado, and  snacks.  His favorite I think are sweet potatoes only because every time he eats them he makes a "YUM" sound. 

Sleep: He is currently taking two naps ranging from 1 hr to 2.5 hrs a day and sleeping through the night!  He usually wakes up between 7:30 - 8:30am daily.  He did sleep until 9am last Friday.  Now, that would be nice to have daily.  :)

Sizes:  He is slowly moving into 6-9 months clothes.  He still can wear 3-6 month tops but everything else is 6-9 months.  He is also wearing size 3 diapers. 

He saw me taking a picture and went for the camera.  After I took his picture I showed him what it looked like and he looked at it.  It was funny.  He already knows what to do after a picture!

What I love:  I love how he is so happy.  I just told him this the other day.  I love how he makes loud noises for us to just look at him and then smiles really big.  I love how he flaps his arms when you are carrying him.  I feel like he wants to fly away and go somewhere.  I love how he plays with his feet.  He will start getting grumpy and then once he finds his feet he turns into a happy baby again.  His new thing is to go from crying to a grunting.  It cracks me up.  I have asked him "how can you go from upset to happy within a second"?  I'm still waiting for his answer!  I love how he gives big kisses.  He grabs both sides of my hair and pulls my face in to kiss me.  I love how he reaches for me sometimes for me to hold him and love on him.  I love how he loves on me.  He is such a sweet boy and I love it!

Happy 7 Months Drew Boy!
