7 Months Old

Wow, another month down, more milestones met! Hunter is an amazing baby. He sleeps well, he eats well, he's easy going, and we can't help but be head over heels for him. Eden is learning to love him and learning to  have "sibling love" for him! She pushes his buttons, and she knows that she can be a little more rough with him now that he's not such a baby anymore {which makes me sad!} When Hunter sees her walk into a room his face lights up and he gives her a big smile! We have to constantly remind Eden that she's got to be on her best behavior all the time because Hunter is learning from us and we have to show him how we want him to act.

One of Hunter's favorite "games" right now {in addition to peek-a-boo} is what I call the kissing game. He likes to stand on my lap and hold on to my hands. He'll pull forward to get close to my face and "give me a kiss" with a wide open mouth. When he does this he laughs if I make the *muah* kiss sound. Oh man, his laughs are so full of pure joy! He's such a sweet little guy.

Another one of his new and fun things to do is to respond when we clap. If we clap and say "yay!" he will throw his arms up and down. It's kind of like his own way of clapping. He's too cute when he does this. He gets a huge, goofy, gummy {nope, still no teeth} smile and does it over and over again. As many times as you'll clap for him, he'll flap and smile!

He's crawling all over the place at the speed of light these days. He can get across the room in no time at all. We've had to put the dogs' water outside because Hunter wouldn't stay out of it. He liked to splash in it, so we had to put it where he can't get to it. No matter where it was, where he was, he was going to get the water! We couldn't stand it and we couldn't stop him, so it's outside now.
