A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2015.
7 months old (3 days shy of 8 months)
It has been quite the busy week for you in California and a lot of firsts checked off our list! It was the first time we drove down just the two of us and you were perfect as usual for the 11+ hours it took us to get there and only cried to have your diaper changed!
Your Auntie Jen, Uncle Tyler and cousins Anna and Evan spoiled you with lots of love and attention and they babysat you (the first time I’ve left you with anyone other than your Grandma Rachelle for an extended period) while I went to LA to photograph a Bat Mitzvah. You didn’t even miss me. 🙁
We also had a blast watching them at their swim meet/swim practice and playing in the water at the JCC in Newport. You are already a fishy, you kick around and love to splash and taste the water. We also went to Disneyland where you received your first visit pin and I got my birthday pin for the 2nd year in a row. None of the rides scared you and we had such a fun time!
You are getting so active and more mobile now. Even though you still haven’t figured out the crawling thing, you can pull your self and army crawl where you need to go. You even managed to crawl and fall out of bed for the first time (Evan’s bed is sitting on the floor, but still!). I heard a yelp and when I went in to check on you I found you in a tangled heap just playing with Evan’s piano that was in reach. Phew. What a tough guy you are. We’re in for it once you can really get around.
