The Smiliest Guy {Seven Months Old}

Image
Our little smiley guy is seven months old today. We're on the downhill slope to his first birthday, and I'm not sure I'm ready for it.

I'm not going to lie. I couldn't wait for him to get to this age. Isaac was so paranoid about every sound and movement the baby made after his first boy was born, that he had me paranoid, too. First, we were worried that he wasn't making eye contact. Then he wasn't smiling. Then he didn't laugh out loud. I remember thinking when he was teeny tiny that I couldn't wait for him to be bigger, so I knew that he was OK. Well, guess what? He's just fine and does all of those things plus more. He also tries to talk to us in long sing-song noises, but he hasn't made any distinct mama or dada sounds just yet. 

This big boy can sit up on his own now, which is so fun. He loves to sit on the floor and play with his toys, and he lights up when you call him "big boy". When he's on his belly on the floor, he s…

Our Favorite Thing {Six Months Old}

Image
We're halfway through Brother's first year, and I'm not sure how we got here. Maybe it's because I'm mostly a mombie (that's a zombie mixed with a mom that's getting minimal sleep for those that don't know) lately, but I feel like we were just gearing up to head to the hospital to welcome a baby boy to the family. I blinked, and he's six months old. Like, what?


He's the best. Seriously. He just looks at anyone he meets and gives them the biggest grin. All of the guys at work come in to my office and talk to him and then die when he smiles at them. They say, "I can't believe he smiles at me every time! He must like me!", but he really does that with everyone. He's just the sweetest.
He's laughing a little bit more here and there, but we're still waiting on that big belly laugh. Right now it's just little giggles and super loud squeals. He's rolling back and forth with ease and will roll across the room when Mom …

Last Week...

Picture of the Week: Soccer Saturday

Brother watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse at work on Monday. He even sat himself up in his rocker like a big boy.

Charley took this cute picture of him while we were driving home from school.

Perry had dance class, and her chunky little legs looked adorable in her tights.

Bro Bro tried sweet potatoes and didn't hate them. He didn't love them either and kept making faces. I think it's the texture of pureed baby food that gets him. He just doesn't like the mush. We'll probably try more of a baby led weaning approach minus anything that I'm too afraid will choke him.



He played with his new bee toy and really likes it.


Perry played with face filters on Snap Chat and had me dying with this video. She's too much!



Bro Bro snuggled with me on the couch. 

We went to Grandpa and Grandma Espejo's house where Presley held Brother and loved on him.

We played with more face filters, and Isaac and I couldn't stop laughing.
