Seven Months and Easter

Finn turned seven months old last Saturday and it is so hard to believe how quickly time is flying. I know that I will be saying the same thing come this fall when he turns one. I know that any parents will tell us that it just keeps getting better and better BUT he is at such a fun age right now.

Baby boy, you smile and laugh all the time. You absolutely LOVE mommy and daddy and think we are just the best thing in the world (praying it stays this way). You are so content to just sit and play with your toys, your toes, anything you can get your hands on really. You LOVE jumping in your jumper and will do it until you're out of breath. You love to eat- right now fav foods are blueberries, peaches, sweet potatoes, broccoli, carrots and squash. I look forward to making you some real "meals" soon. You also love to sleep! This makes mommy and daddy very happy as you still take 3 naps a day and sleep 12 hours at night. You want so badly to crawl, but just can't quite figure it out just yet. You push up on your hands and knees and do a backwards scoot. Right now, your preferred method of getting around is rolling and rotating yourself on your tummy to reach your toys. You have just gotten the hang of sitting up by yourself, but will still get a little off balance every now and then. You LOVE being outside! We've been going on a lot of walks in this pretty weather. You also now have TWO teeth! Teething has been a whole new experience for you and we've had a few sleepless nights, but you've made it through like a champ. Here are some highlights from the past month.
You started sitting like a big boy in the shopping cart!
 Sort of...
 You would do this all day long if we let you.

You now sleep on your side and we think its just about the cutest thing ever.
 Have I mentioned how much you love to sleep?
We took you to the park for the first time to swing and you loved it!

 You got to experience your first Master's Sunday with Bubba Watson taking home the green jacket!
You're trying so hard to crawl.
We went to Children's Transplant night with the Braves for my work and you got to stroll around the field. While you were quite underwhelmed with it now, I'm sure you'll look back on it and think it was cool.

We went to Greenville to celebrate your first Easter with your Oma, Opa, aunts, uncles and cousins. Here is our mandatory pitstop along the way.

 All of my beautiful nieces and nephews.
We also celebrated your cousin, Sawyer's 3rd birthday and Opa's birthday.
Your oldest cousin, Haley also got baptized!
Now for the 7 month pictures...

 In your daddy's rocking chair from when he was little.

Yes, sweet boy- we love to pieces and it is quite apparent that the feeling is mutual. Your smiles just fill us with so much joy and we are so blessed that we get to be your parents.
