7 Months....

(so i put these guys on the couch to take a picture of them and Stetson jumped in front of Reddek. I'm so glad that I captured it. It was hilarious!!!)









7 months! I can't believe it. Where does the time go? I love these little guys. When they smile, they melt my heart!

Stetson:
- Stetson has a very happy disposition. He has a cute way of smiling. It starts on one side and then the other side of his mouth joins in....and it ends up being a big gummy smile!
- He is sitting up. And then he bounces as he sits.
- Loves tummy time and has started to scooch forward to reach further objects. i don't think it will be long until he his army crawling.
- He LOVES looking at his brother. He has really started to watch what Reddek is doing.
- Stetson likes to arch back? He does it at the most random times.
- He loves to look at the lights in our hallway. They make him smile.
- Stetson can be found in his crib... holding his toes and smiling.
- He is eating solids.....sweet potatoes and apples are his favorite. Loves prunes as well....does NOT like peas. I've tried and tried.
- Stetson has begun to scream. He's not mad....he just talks VERY loudly. With a smile on his face, I might add!




Reddek:

- Reddek is such a goofster. He's got such a crazy little fun personality.
- He always has his tongue out. Especially when he smiles. He curls just the little pointy end of his tongue up over his top lip. LOVE it!
- He is sitting up like champ. Still a bit wobbly, but he is doing great. Catching himself more and more.
- Lately he's been doing a LOT of cooing. Sound like a pigeon. I've nicknamed him "Pidge" for the time being.
- He loves tummy time. And it quickly turns into rolling time. I leave the room and when I come back, he's rolled to a new locations.
- He turns in circles when on his tummy.
- Reddek is a JUMPER. Oh man! Stand him up on your legs in front of you and off he goes! Jumpa Jumpa Jampa. He is now trained to jump whenever we sing the little song.....dee da lee dee da lee dee.....hilarious. I'll post a video.
- Reddek loves to give kisses.
- He's eating solids now. Sweet Potatoes and Pears are his favorite. He opens his mouth so wide...so wide!
- Has started to sleeping on his tummy with his legs curled up underneath him. So very cute.
- Reddek gets REALLY frustrated with the tail of the zebra on his playmate. He HATES that it does not come off. He grunts at it until I have to move him because he gets sooooo frustrated!
- He likes to steal his brother's toys. Doesn't matter how many toys I put in front of Reddek....he goes for Stetson's!

Together:

- They are starting to look and each other and then talk. I wonder what they are saying?
- They were troopers while we were in AZ letting daddy study for boards.
- They are sitting in high chairs....with big smiles on their faces. I think they feel like big boys!
- They are very content playing on the ground by themselves for longer periods of time.
- They went swimming of the first time this month.
- They went to their first movie.....two actually.
- They have graduated to their double stroller! We go on fun walks and they like to whats going on around them.
- Still LOVE bath time. Although I am getting drenched each night. They SPLASH and SPLASH. They both pound on the tub wall with their feet as well....like they are marching. It is really cute.
- They each have their own little personality that are really starting to become apparent. So fun to watch them grow and develop.

I lOVE these boys. I feel so blessed to be their mom. They bring me so much joy!

I can't believe they're 7 months. The other day when we went swimming I was totally honest when I asked if they're 4 or 5 months old now. Time is flying!! They are so cute! You're an awesome mama!
