Rhett at Seven Months

My baby is seven months old! I've always thought of six months as a line. Once you hit it, you're no longer a little baby. You're a big baby! In stature, Rhett is still a pretty little boy. But his mind is growing every day and we can really see the changes in him all the time! He's developing such a little personality. He loves to laugh with us, and really enjoys being the center of attention. He's not pleased when play time is cut short for silly things like naps and bottles.
"MY new toy! Not for you!"
"This is my bread"
He's gotten the hang of purees--he's tried avocado  banana, carrots, sweet potato, squash, green beans, peas, apples and probably a few that I'm forgetting. His favorite so far is bananas and he's never thrilled when carrots are on the menu. He's not enthusiastic about feeding himself yet. It's funny because he's at the stage where toys (and pretty much everything) goes directly in his mouth. But put a cracker in front of that kid and he will just crush it up and throw it around the room.

He is THIS CLOSE to crawling. He can get up on all fours and scoot around pretty well. I'm sure he's just going to take off one of these days. I'm still enjoying his immobility. It's nice to be able to set him down on  the carpet and go to the bathroom without having to worry about him too much.

"Daddies are fun!"
Rhett loves his daddy so much. I don't know what it is about those two, but they just have so much fun together. When I come home from work, Josh always has a new 'trick' to show me that they learned from each other that day (today it was that if you kid Rhett's belly over and over, he laughs like a madman). It's sweet to see what a special bond they have.
Rhett can sit up on his own really well now. He can even get into sitting position by himself sometimes. He likes to sit and watch everything. He usually gets pretty upset if he tips over though. He's frustrated that he doesn't have more control over his body. Soon, buddy.

Rhett thinks the world is hilarious. He laughs when we laugh and also loves airplane, peek-a-boo, being upside down, being tickled and of course, his belly getting kissed. It is such a joy to see him so happy all the time. We feel truly blessed by our little boy.
