Seriously, this kid is happy just standing. How did we get so lucky?
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.
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.
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.
