The Seventh Month

Stats: no doctor's appointment this month but you are getting big! You wear mostly 9 month clothes, with a few 6 and 12 months thrown in.
Likes: milk, being outside, putting things in your mouth, biting people, eating lots of food, having your teeth brushed, drooling, sleeping on your tummy

Dislikes: not getting to have milk in the middle of the night, using a sippy cup, being away from your Mama

Special Memories:

I promised on the last post that I would devote more time to my friend Sara's visit since it was mostly during JT's "seventh" month of life. I have known Sara literally my entire life, and we were all excited that she was coming to visit us. Unfortunately she was sick and not feeling her best but we made the most of the visit. Something exciting that has happened since the last time Sara visited is that she has started her own photography business, and it is awesome! She has been incredibly generous to take wonderful pictures of our family from the time I was pregnant until now. Ryan and I were talking about how thankful we are that she has done this for us so that we can remember all these precious moments years from now. Here are just a few of my favorite pictures that Sara has taken for us.

We love you Sara! Thanks for coming to see us!!!

I decided that it would be a good time to make the trip to NC when Sara left so that I would have some company on the flights there. I feel like everytime I turn around we are back on the plane which is pretty funny since I HATE flying! But...we have to take advantage of JT not needing a ticket while we can. :) It was another wonderful trip to NC, but it was nice to get back to LA and return to our normal routine. I promised myself and Ryan that I was not going to travel for at least a month or two.

James loves his granddaddy
Hanging out at the Holland household
Who needs toys when you have bowls?
Some of the extra "Grandmas" :)
Getting so big!

In hopes of helping James sleep better we have had a consistent bedtime routine since he was around 8 weeks old. For the record, I do not think that it made a difference with his sleep but it is a special time for the three of us.

We begin it with bath time, normally done by Daddy.

Followed by milk

Followed by bible story (obviously this picture was a few months ago)

Ending with prayers and cuddles.
About the age that we started our "routine". He loves his bears!

Typical Saturday at our house

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
