7 months

Well, our little man is officially on the back half of his first year of life.  Hard to believe.  He is turning into such a little person, I can't even stand it.  I want to have the flip on 24/7.  He had his 6 month (more like 6.5 month) check up a few weeks ago and he continues to be "off the charts" for height... coming in around a cool 30 inches.  Y'all, that's 2 and a half feet.  Crazy!  Mr. Chunk Thighs is also in the 75th percentile for weight, just under 20 lbs.  I see a convertible car seat in our near future.  No way he is fitting in his rear facing infant seat for two years.  Seriously pediatricians?  How is that possible?

He is as close to crawling as it gets.  He's mastered "the scoot" and usually gets some air under him while he does it.  He loves to rock back and forth on his hands and knees so it's just a matter of time before he figures out he can move faster that way. 

He still has just the two teeth, and I thought I would be super sad when his gummy smile would be gone forever, but let me tell you... his smile is cuter than ever.
I'm so glad he isn't currently cutting anymore teeth.  He is so much happier, which means momma is much happier.
(here's a close up in case you missed it...)

These days Guns has turned into a regular chatterbox.  His favorite thing to say is "ah-ba-ba".  Who knows what that means, but it's freaking adorable.  And, I swear he says "ma" when he cries...

He's still in love with his jumperoo, as you can see.  Sometimes I think he's going to jump right out of it!  last night he ripped down the canopy with the little Eeyore and Piglet toys.  He was beyond proud of himself.  And he was laughing hysterically to boot.

This month, Guns also went for his very first bike ride.  He was very excited!  Although I think we oved his Spiderman helmet more than he did...  We went from our house to the front of the island and back.  It was about 5 miles.  Yea, he passed out.

And now for your viewing pleasure, some beach bum pictures:

7 months down, and getting cuter by the minute.  Love this kid.
