Carter Baby, are a rolling machine. Over and over and over again. Unstoppable, really. I can barely take my eyes off you for a second before you're rolling all over a room. Remember that time you rolled under the futon while Mama was blogging? OK, good. Me neither.
You've also started pushing up onto all fours and rocking. Be still my heart. Did I mention you're also army crawling backwards? Let's talk about catapulting towards your first birthday. I think Mama is going to have a coronary.
I don't think I've ever mentioned this, but you also love to stand up. You can pull yourself up from a sitting to standing position with just a little help from Mama or Daddy. You can also support yourself while standing, if you're holding onto the ottoman or.. Sheepie. Some days I truly forget that you're only seven months old.
Let's see, what else have you been up to?
Earlier this month, you transitioned to your convertible Britax and are absolutely fixated on staring out the window. You love to take Sophie and Pony along for car rides and have recently become enamored with red Solo cups. As a matter of fact, a red Solo cup was your best buddy on your recent trip to New Jersey. You behaved amazingly well during the 4 hour ride, sleeping for the first 3 hours and playing/eating Mum-Mum's that last hour. It's just awesome to see what a ways you've come from that meltdown on the NJ Turnpike when you were a mere 6 weeks old and Mama was in tears with you!
Speaking of New Jersey, you spent two weeks hanging out with Gammie and Poppy. You are obsessed with your Poppy. If I didn't know any better, I would say he's definitely one of your most favorite people. You know something Carter, he's my favorite, too!
Squishy, you're just so awesome. Your Daddy and I love you SO much and we're so grateful to be the parents of such a happy, healthy, smiley, sometimes-stubborn-and-snarky, little boy! Love you bunches, Lil' Bit!
