Dear Calvin // Seven Months

Dear Calvin,

Oh buddy, this has been the month of teething. Yes, MONTH!  And sadly, we don't have a whole lot to show for all the pain & tears.  However, you still manage to fill our days with smiles like the one above and all the teething trouble seem to fade away.

Along with teething, we've still been introducing solid foods here & there, but you aren't showing a whole lot of interest.  We can now add sweet potato, avocado, & banana to the list of foods you have tried, but after one or two bites, you just want to play with it.  We'll keep trying, but honestly don't feel any big rush quite yet.

Up until this month, you have just been rolling around, but you've now learned how to scoot around on your tummy & pivot in a circle.  We've caught you on all fours, rocking back & forth, a couple of times, but no crawling... yet!

I'm really looking forward to the upcoming holidays and can't wait to see it all through your sweet eyes --- your first Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Years!

  1. Such a cutie.

  2. 7 months?! I feel like you just had that sweet boy!

    Also, as far as solids go, M was a slow starter! I stressed about it (silly me), and sure enough she eats just fine now! Good for you for just following his lead. I wish I could go back and tell myself to take a chill pill. She'll eat when she's ready!
