seven months

hello! aren't i a cute baby? so innocent and adorable...
oh! you thought i was a baby laying there all cute and cuddly. just kidding! i get up on all fours and rock and i can do plank pose better than any yoga instructor. my baby days are over...i'm about to be on the move!
you o.k. with that?

no, judah. i am actually very NOT o.k. with that. but, you are leaving me little choice. although you still eat (no solids) and sleep (up every few hours) like a newborn, you move and interact like a toddler. though your mouth still flashes a toothless grin, you want to be a part of the action like someone years ahead of you. you are a whopping 22 pounds, so i guess you're technically big enough to be in preschool, but i just want you to be a baby a little bit longer.
so if i don't cheer and coo every time you attempt a crawl or grasp things with razor-like precision, don't think i'm not proud of you...i just want to hold onto these days a bit more. you see, i've had two other babies, and i know where this is going...

He is so adorable! And definitely growing up way too quickly. We need to do something about this.
