Seven Months Old

Dear Parker,
You are SEVEN months old and more fun than ever!!!! You are one big ball of energy these days. Mommy has to be sure she takes her vitamins to be able to keep up with you. You are very sociable and laugh and smile at everyone you meet. You are now rolling and "scooting" all over the place. You haven't mastered crawling yet, but you are on the verge. You get up on all fours and rock back and forth, but haven't figured out how to put one hand in front of the other yet and just take off. It won't be long though and you'll be ALL over the place. Today your first tooth has just barely popped through. It seems like you've been working on it forever. You are now a PRO at eating. You love sweet potatoes, pears, carrots, apples, bananas, peaches, prunes, green beans, and squash. You are not crazy about peas or cereal and make funny faces, gag, and sputter when we try to feed them to you.  You can drink out of a sippy cup. You absolutely love to play in your high chair and jump in your bouncy frog. You can sit up unassisted and play with your toys. You talk up a storm and can say these sounds, buh-bye, da-da, eeeeee, and an occasional mmmmm. You make "truck" noises that Uncle Justin taught you. You LOVE, LOVE, LOVE outside. Mommy can't wait until summer when we can spend more time outdoors. You enjoy watching things and trying to figure out how they work. Mommy is on spring break this week and one of my most favorite things is our early morning chats while laying in bed. You are now sleeping in your own crib and we are working on elimnating those night feedings. Surely ONE day you WILL sleep through the night.
 I absolutely LOVE being your mama, Parker. With each day that passes, I think I couldn't love you anymore, but somehow my love for you grows bigger and bigger each day. There are NO words really to say HOW much I REALLY love you. We have so much fun together and I can't imagine my world without you, because you my son ARE MY WORLD! I love you very much!!!

Love, MaMa
