i know i'm a bad blogger, and i don't blame you if you stop following me. i would too. i just wanted to mention that mr. tobykins is 7 months old. can you believe it? i can't. and he is such a good stinking baby. he's been eating solids better. it took him some getting used it, but i kept persisting and now he eats a steady diet of homemade butternut squash, carrots, peas, pears, bananas and applesauce. he's still sort of getting the hang of it, but he loves eating lunch and dinner (sometimes both, sometimes just one meal a day). hasn't quite got the sippy cup down yet, but were working on it.
toby is also sitting up really well and loves being in his jumpy. he hasn't shown any signs he's wanting to crawl, and that is a-ok with mama. tucker crawled at 7 months and i'm perfectly fine with toby staying in one spot just a bit longer. :) he has started mimicking us when we shake our head to say "no", toby shakes his head too. its so cute. or when he's done eating, he shakes his head "no". or when tucker has been smothering him with kisses, he shakes his head "no." not sure he actually knows what it means, but it so darn cute. still no teeth. he's been sticking his tongue out and playing with his tongue a lot. we just figured out some sleep issues and now he only wakes up once during the night, instead of every 2 hours. when i got to bed at 12, i feed him and then he wakes up again around 4 and then again at 8. or something like that. nothing ever stays the same with babies, but for now, that's our routine. he loves being in the ergo carrier and everyday when i pick up elliana and tucker from school i put him in it. he wuvs his mama. ;) he is just so sweet. and mellow. i think he'll be like his daddy. wait, i said that about tucker too. and tucker is too. well, i can't wait to see what he's like, because i already love everything about him. including his toothless grin!!
