Today my baby boy turns 7 months old and yet again I find myself wondering where the time has gone. I'm absolutely loving this age and at times wish that I could push pause and stay right in this moment for a bit longer. Raleigh is becoming his own little man with his own personality that I admire with all of my heart. He's become quite vocal and will let us know when he's hungry, when he's finished eating, when he's bored, when he's happy and when he's mad. I love the way he wakes up happy from a nap - he peaks his head over his crib and is all smiles. Balloons get my boy very excited. I love our nightly routine of dinner, bath and books. Yes, I comb his hair meticulously each night when he gets out of the bath.
Raleigh now has his two bottom teeth and has four top teeth working their way in. He is this close to crawling and is currently scooting himself around the room, but sometimes is completely content in the push-up/plank position. We're slowly working on childproofing the house, but I'm thinking this task may need to be accelerated as he is putting anything within reach (especially cords/phone chargers) immediately into his mouth. He's an eater! Loves his food. He's quite social. He loves his naps, but has yet to sleep through the night, we know we're getting close...fingers crossed I'm not writing this same line next month.
Raleigh - there is nothing in the world we wouldn't do for you. You continue to amaze us on daily basis and have made me and your daddy so incredibly happy. You are one in a million and we are so thankful that you chose us. We love you!
