To my little peanut,
You’ve been with us for half a year. HALF A YEAR! How is that even possible? It feels like just yesterday we found out we were pregnant with you! I am so happy to have you in my life, I really can’t express how much I love being your mommy. You are amazing. I am so happy I get to watch you grow up.
You can CRAWL! You’ve been army crawling for a while now, but the first week of January you decided army crawling wasn’t good enough and took off crawling everywhere. On top of learning to crawl, you have decided it’s a great time to also start to pull yourself up. When I took you to the pediatrician, she was literally amazed that you could do all of that. I, of course, was proud of you. At your appointment, you weighed 17.4 pounds and were 26″ long. According to the average, you are small. 50th in weight and 25th percentile in height. I love you, anyways!
You have two teeth on the bottom. They are adorable. I love seeing you smile and showing your two teeth off. It’s amazing! Right now you love watching these cute little YouTube shows, reading books, and playing with anything you can get into. Including, of course, things you aren’t supposed to get into, such as cables, wires, cords, and plugs! I have to watch you like a hawk and hide them the best that I can! Please, for me, play with just your toys?
You are also starting to not only pull yourself up, but walk along the furniture as well. Now, I am so proud of you, but please slow down! I don’t want a 7 month old who can walk!
Another cute thing you are doing this month is giving us kisses. We ask, “Can I have a kiss?” and you will open your mouth and attempt to kiss us. Oh my. A-dor-able! You are also smiling a lot more, which is really cute with your two teeth. You laugh at a lot of things. One of your favorites is funny faces. If someone makes a funny face, you giggle! You also laugh at being tickled and when someone else smiles or laughs at you. You will put on a show for anyone who wants to watch.
You are also started to notice stranger=danger. One time your uncle, who you haven’t seen in a while, came over and you did not want him to hold you! You are also becoming a mommy’s boy. Which is cute and all, but sometimes it’d be nice to let other people hold you. I cherish the time I get holding you, though. Because I know it won’t last forever and I know one day you won’t want mommy to hold you.
I am blessed to be your mommy.
I love you so much!
