7 Months Old!

We can hardly believe Henry is now seven months old?! Since I last wrote, Henry has hit some major milestones -

Henry is now enjoying veggies (peas, green beans, carrots, squash, sweet potatoes) and fruits (bananas, pears, applesauce, peaches). He has had his first sip of water and apple juice (no added sweetner) and has even attempted to feed himself Gerber "puffs". Once Henry masters puffs, it's on to Cheerios.

We wonder what we're going to do about that head?! At seven months, Henry is about to outgrow his 12 month cowboy hat.

Henry has grown to love bath time more and more. He gets so excited that he grunts and splashes the entire time he's in the water. This makes cleaning him a challenge.

You've seen his costume, but you haven't seen the cute tee Candice picked up for him to sport Halloween Day.

Grandma had back surgery the week before Thanksgiving and Henry and I frequented the hospital for several days.

Henry worked hard to keep Grandma's bed warm while she was out walking the halls.

Okay, so it wasn't all work...there was definitely some play.

In the last month, Henry has also experienced his first Thanksgiving and Christmas party - he was the hit of the evening.

Henry got excited about the Christas tree. He's grabbing lights and ornaments every chance he gets. It may be the motivation he needs to crawl.

Yes, that's actually hair you see. Henry is working on that too. Hair AND his first upper tooth (only one...going to be a snaggle tooth I'm afraid).

Our boy is going to be active! Unless he's tired, it is getting difficult to hold on to Henry. He LOVES to move and spends most of his days rocking back and forth either sitting on his cowboy blanket, or on his hands and knees. We suspect he'll be crawling by Christmas. Look out Grandma and Mamaw! Henry Shaw is coming to town...better move those Christmas tree ornaments up a few branches.
