For Thanksgiving we decided to go away on a small vacation instead of just staying home. We rode the gondola ride at the Venetian. You loved listening to the songs and the boat rocking put you right to sleep. You ate everything like a bagel, croissant, hummus, pickle, french fries, and green beans. You enjoyed watching all the fountains in front of every hotel. The dolphins at our hotel were fun to see up close. Two nights you went to a day care so we could go out to dinner and a show. You loved it so much that when we picked you up many hours past your bedtime and there you were jumping away in the jumperoo.

Play date

Yesterday we had a play date with the neighbor Allie and boy was it cute. You didn't learn to crawl even after watching her. But you both got in plenty of pulling on faces along with hand holding. It was a great way to see what toys you liked to ask Santa for.


RJ has a blast walking in circles with the activity table in the kitchen while I washed bottles. It's been a fav toy around here for a few months, but this was the first time not on the carpet so he could really cruise.

Better late then never, I realized I never did a Halloween post. You had your first cold and went to bed early, but didn't stay asleep very long.  You were up and happy by the time the trick or treaters came so out came the lion costume. I bought it last year before you were even born so luckily it fit. You had a blast smiling at all the trick or treaters. You even tried to grab the candy in the bowl a few times, but mommy was quicker.


The Jumperoo has been the hit toy around here for some time and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. He loves to jump up and down like crazy and spin around grabbing for the bird.

7 months

Hard to believe how much time has passed. This past month you learned to sit up and boy do you love it. You haven't quite mastered crawling, but you are trying hard. Somehow you still have no teeth, but it hasn't stopped you from eating everything that comes near you. A few recent favs Olive Garden bread stick and yogurt. You still love bananas, sweet potatoes, and graham crackers the best. You don't love peas. You are starting to eat a lot more real foods like scrambled eggs and french toast. You had your first cold this month, but it didn't slow you down and I was so happy it didn't change your awesome sleep. As for day light savings time wish I could say the same. Hopefully we will move past the 5 AM wake up soon. Music class ended this month, but don't worry because we are staying busy and will try Gymboree next.

Here you are sitting up for our holiday card shoot
