Where to start with our little man and him hitting 7 months. He's now got two teeth and uses them with full force. His bottom two teeth have come fully in, and for now that seems to be about it. He's also figured out that he can really get you with those two little teeth of his.

Cole's food array has expended a considerable amount in the last month. Some of the foods that I know hes had include apples, bananas, peaches, pears, sweet potato, zucchini, acorn squash, yellow squash, butternut squash, carrots, and peas. And that's just the stuff that I can remember. He's done well with most of them, personally I think he disliked the peas the most. Jenn, like a true champ, has been making all of his food. So I'm definitely proud of her, and I'm sure the food tastes that much better to Cole know his mom made it for him.

Cole's personality is continuing to evolve, month by month. This month he seems smile and laugh even more. He really seems to enjoy spending time on his own, something Abbi NEVER enjoying doing. Cole is content to sit in his pack and play with toys and play for a while, or often times he's playing in his exa-saucer, which he loves.

Personally, now that Cole has stopped spitting up every 5 minutes, and he doesn't wail every time Jenn walks away, I'm finding it more and more enjoyable to spend time with him. I can sit with him and play, he's even fallen asleep with me a few times this past month. It really is awesome to wake up in the morning, and see Cole and when he hears my voice he always turns his head to find me. Definitely an awesome feeling. And when he finds me, he always get this big grin on his face, just like the one in this picture.

Lastly, I love that my kids love each other. Abbi is the best big sister Cole could have ever hoped for. She loves him to death, and for that we love her that much more. Its an awesome feeling knowing your family is complete.

Saturday we went to a birthday party for Ange and Jakes little girl, Ellie who turned 1 last week. That of course meant that Abbi and Audrey got to have some fun playing together. The party was at Ange's dad's house, with a pool, and while the girls didn't really swim all that much (I think Abbi was in the pool about 3 minutes), they did play and hang out in their bathing suits. I managed to coral them over long enough to get this picture, that pretty much sums the two of them up.

In a trait he clearly inherited from his mother, here you can really see Cole's big blue eyes. This picture is from the other night after taking his "7 month" pictures.

This is from Monday night. I was getting dinner ready and so Abbi was keeping Cole occupied by feeding him puffs. He loves them. I mean LOVES them. He seems like he can't get enough. If only he could figure out how to put them in his mouth on his own, then he'd be all set.

Last night was Abbi's first night at Rainbows. Rainbows is a church sponsored activity for kids aged 3-4. Its the first step in a program that at age 5 separates into boys and girls and is a Christian based girl-scouts type of activity. Point behind all this, Jenn was super excited for Abbi to start Rainbows last night.
