Hello Nixon | 7 Months Old
Oh son you are starting to scare the bejeezus out of us.
You are constantly in motion. Not like a leaf-on-a-tree-swaying-in-the-breeze kinda motion, more like a frantic-bull-on-the-streets-of-Pamplona kinda motion. I can’t even believe I managed to snap pics of you this month. You are one busy beaver.
It’s been a bit of a rough month to be honest, but you are always smiling, despite waking every 2 hours in the night, but you and I had a little stay-cation this weekend and fingers crossed some serious routine-tweaking has put those difficult nights behind us.
You have really garnered some strong opinions about your food in the last 10 days. You have absolutely no time for any chunky food, and will lock you lips down so tight and refuse to eat if the is even a hint of a mushy pea in your bowl. You be a baby as long as you want, I won’t mind I promise x.
Your favourite things are doors – safe I know! You love laying on your belly, one hand on the door, the other supporting your impressive girth, just swinging the door back and forth. I watch your carefully so we don’t have any accidents as you so love trying to figure out what that big ol heavy hard thing does and why we have so many of them in our house.
Your dogs have got you pretty pegged at this point. They have seen how quickly you can chase a vacuum cleaner when you want to taste it, so they are giving you a pretty wide berth these days. Your grabby little paws are like lightening when there is a doggy tail or ear in the vicinity to yank on.
Commando crawling is fully operational. You have mastered downward dog pose and get up on all fours ready to crawl but haven’t quite figured out how to make those knees start moving. This is no handicap to you as you can propel yourself around the house just fine thank you very much.
We love you, we love you, we love you.
It has been so special introducing you to your fab Aunt Kaley and Granddaddy Jack this week. They have come all the way from Florida to kiss your cheeks while you scream DADA at them and I’m pretty sure they think you are ace.
