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!
