7 Months!

This little big turkey is 7 months old today!

Will is still sleeping through the night. The past two nights he decided to wake up at 4am to be rocked for an hour, but that isn't typical :) I don't feel any teeth cutting through yet, so he must be growing again. He eats bottles 4 times a day and has baby food and/or table food in between here and there. With this schedule, he has a consistent morning nap and afternoon nap which last anywhere from 1-2 hours.

Will is sitting, rolling and moving backwards while on his tummy. He can stand on his own (holding onto furniture) for minutes at a time. He's so big! He's also saying "mama mama" all the time. He's constantly smiling and giggling. He's very observant and really getting into toys. Most toys (and anything!) goes right into his mouth. Such a joy to be with :)






















He has the sweetest personality. I'm thankful for such a sweet, growing boy!

30 Weeks!

Will is 30 weeks old! I cannot believe how time is flying...almost 7 months now!

Remember the snow pictures from last week? There was one Corey took and posted to reddit. It had almost 900,000 views in 24 hours! I thought it might mean we're famous or something. Apparently not :P

Will has decided he wants to roll a bit more now. He's also getting on all fours and rocking all the time! He desperately wants to move froward, and even will launch sometimes, but really he's just a pro at moving backwards. He showed his moves for his Great Nana who was in town when he spent the night at Nana/Papa's a few days ago. He also loves looking in the mirror still. Such a ham. (I bet most babies love doing that, but it seems extra cute when you're own child does it ;))

Will had his first swim class last week. Well, he was the only one in it for now, so it was more like a private lesson. He was kicking his legs, went under water, and was so content (until the last 5 minutes when he was super tired). My friend has a lady she's taken all her kids to for summer swim lessons, so I am looking forward to when Will can do that next summer. He's made for the water!

Will has also tried and liked salsa (medium!), sour cream, refried beans and white chicken chili. He's grabbing at everything still, and he makes an "ahhh!" noise and them dives into to chomp on whatever is closest to him. He likes to hug/snuggle, and he especially likes to wiggle/"wrestle" with Daddy. He's getting so big...already in 12 month clothes!

But the best part of this week? Will keeps saying "mama" over and over! I don't think he connects me with those words quite yet, but we'll just pretend he does for now...it warms my heart :)

I had another cute bath pic, but his private parts were showing...





 A fav :)






Spent the night at Nana's and woke up to this picture :)


Nice bed head babe!

Great Nana here all the way from PA!

A freaking love this boy :)

He even kicked his legs!




Dunked!











Asleep before we even got home from MVP (a 10 minute drive!)

I went a little overboard with the swimming pictures...no shame, he's my first!
