Road Tripping

R.Simple Life | Road Tripping with a Baby

As I mentioned on Friday, this kid seriously was a road tripping champion. This picture was taken on our only stop on the six hour drive home. You heard me. A seven month old, a car seat, six hours, one stop. My secret? Lots of toys, and, more importantly, traveling during nap time, stopping for dinner and a little photo shoot in the parking lot, and then hitting the road about 30 minutes before bed time.

Happy Graduation Auntie Jillian!

R.Simple Life | Harry and the Graduate

Sorry for the radio silence yesterday. Harry and I spent 15.5 hours in the car the last two days so we could see his Auntie Jillian graduate from grad school. Totally worth every hour on the road to see this girl graduate. And Harry was a champion. I’m so proud of him.

And Just Like That, He’s 7 Months Old.

It’s going too fast. You know when you’re a kid and you decide you’re brave enough to ride the big, fast roller coaster… and then it starts moving, and it’s going too fast and only speeding up and you can’t imagine what you got yourself into? Just wondering.

R.Simple Life | Harry's 7 Months Old

This month went by crazy fast. Maybe it’s because this dude is mobile now. He crawls when he wants to, but more often than not, he scoots. And he’s started pulling himself up. In his crib, on the windowsill, on Mama… anywhere he can get a good grasp. Curious as ever and just as determined, Harry is getting into everything (and we love it).

Harry said his first word this month (“Mama”) and is becoming very vocal, even singing along to the radio now. He learned to chose between two books, which means we read a lot of Brown Bear and Doggies. He also learned to flip the pages in the books, which is always done a little quicker than Mama can read. He no longer takes baths, preferring showers, and still loves everything about the pool.

I know I already said it, but this month just flew by. I love seeing the changes day to day, but man, kid, stop growing so quickly. On a side note, getting a picture of Harry this month was a bit of a task. Most of the shots on the bear are of his back as he was crawling away from me. And the shots in the chair were often interrupted by the photographer (me) running to make sure he didn’t topple off the chair. Too funny.

Sleeping Harry

I don’t think I can take enough pictures of this kid sleeping. It’s just so amazing to watch. Oh, and he’s seven months old today. How did that happen?!

He’s a Swinging Machine

R.Simple Life | Harry on a Swing

I put him in the swing for the first time this week, and he is in love. Even going so far as waking me up at 5:30am so we can get some extra swing time in before Mama has to work.
