7 months



Blake is seven months old today. It's so crazy to think my little precious baby boy is 7 months old! I went shopping for winter clothes for him and bought 6-9 months. I went home and played doll with him and tried on all his new clothes. Sad to say, I had to return them and get 12 months for him. Blake has been said by many who know him and strangers who see him for the first time what a laid back baby he is. He LOVES people...always smiling at them and making them think they are his favorite! He went with me twice to get my hair done which took over an hour and he just sat there in the stroller and played with his toys and looked around. He did fantastic. He is now noticing details, like buttons in my shirts, or designs on my sweater. When he plays, he transfers the object from hand to hand. He loves to laugh and babbles a whole lot more saying bahhh bahh maaa maa and his little cheeks move up and down like an old man with no teeth. Honestly the cutest things ever! Blake is having a bit trouble with napping, but goes to bed at 8:00 every night and doesn't even fuss!

This picture I posted reminded me of one my little brother took in a Chicago Bears jogging suit he wore when he was little. Never did I think Richie's tiny chubby hands would be able to grasp the whole football. As I look at this picture of Blake, it's hard to imagine his tiny precious innocent hands will grasp that of a football someday!

I try to enjoy each moment Blake lets me hold and snuggle him . He is much more aware of his surroundings, so those moments are getting to be much less.

As he is developing, more and more people are saying he looks like me. Not sure myself yet. I think features are me, but body build for sure Jason!

tear tear. This made me cry. He is growing up sooo fast. He has these smiling eyes that say "I know I'm cute. You know you want to hug me".

SO sweet! Happy 7-month-day, Blake! You are SO cute! And it sounds like you are truly enjoying him, Sharon. Love you all! (And where were you going at 5am?!)

Yay baby Blake! He sounds like he is right on track with his milestones. We have to have another play date with the boys soon. I think they will like each other more now that they are aware of their surroundings. He is looking more like you!

What a blessing to have him be such a charm. Grateful that God has used him even already to bring such joy to you and the family and I look forward to hearing all that God has for him in the future.

Blake sounds like such a good baby! That's wonderful that he's so friendly and easy going. Eventhough you had to get the bigger clothes he looks so little by the football. (Baby posts like this make me really want a little one of my own!)

I think he is beginning to look like you too. He is so precious. I wish Bella and he could have play dates, it makes me so sad that I can't drive those couple miles to your house and hang out..
