Chase – 7 months
This month flew by, absolutely flew. Every day you do something that just takes my breath away. You are becoming a little boy. Traces of your babyhood slip away every day, making me weepy and excited all at the same time.
The biggest thing that happened this month was the putting away of the infant carrier car seat. We boxed it up and put it in storage and moved you to your big boy seat. It’s still rear facing of course, don’t worry I’m not breaking any laws. Let me tell you, it took me a week or so to get the hang of not having that carrier to tote you around in. Luckily you really like your new fancy pants stroller with the reclining seat so you can still sleep in it.
Your first Thanksgiving came and went without a hitch. You cooed at all the right times and slept at all the right times and pretty much played the part of perfect baby. You had your first taste of whipped cream and you were not shy about letting me know that you would like to have it become a permanent part of your diet.
Your dad and I finally got our shit together and had you baptized as well. I’m not sure why it took us so long but what can I say, I lose track of time these days. You continued on with your angel routine that you started at Thanksgiving and behaved like a little gentleman. You weren’t exactly thrilled at getting water dripped on your head but you held your distaste to a slight glare at the pastor, at least thats what everyone tells me. I wouldn’t know, I can’t remember anything except for how close you came to throwing up in the baptismal font. Now THAT would have been embarrassing. As it was, you managed to aim it right down my front. I managed to hide it and no one was the wiser, except your Godparents, even your dad failed to notice (see your Godfather’s face in the picture below).
It’s hard to believe that as I’m writing this we are already into your eighth month, you’ve had your first Christmas and your first birthday is just around the corner. I love you more every day.
