seven months



the li'l boy who lives at my house has suddenly come into his own. benji is magically moving across my living room floor without any assistance. i pour cereal, he rolls four times in a row. i empty the dishwasher, he rolls. i open the mail, he rolls. again and again and again. i stand above him, cheering with a camcorder, he gives me a huge benji grin, kicks his legs with mischievous delight and stays right where he is.

benji has also figured out how to maneuver himself in his crib. i love finding him in all kinds of positions after his naps. i imagine him showing off his crib to mtv cribs... and over here we have the red appliqué elephant and blue zebra and above us is a dangly mobile that i just love and beyond these wooden slats are my toys.

our boy loves mashed fruit. he loves 'feeding himself'. he loves hearing dad's voice. loves board books. loves to turn the pages (we often read books backwards and forwards.) loves splashing. loves long car rides. loves to bounce. loves smiling. loves watching mama dance. loves gazing at the mirror. loves when we clap or snap along to music. loves giving hugs around the neck. loves when i sing someone's in the kitchen with benji or there was a mama who had a boy and benji was his name-oh, b. e. n. j. i. he is my sunshine. my sugar. my li'l love. this li'l babe makes me want to have ten more. all in good time.

life is so sweet with a seven month old sidekick. can't wait to see what new tricks this monkey learns next.

Oh, what a sweet, sweet boy! Six and seven months are my favorite baby time. They are coming into their own personality, they learn to sit up, smile, move around a bit. But usually they're not too mobile yet and trying to get get into all the kitchen cupboards. Ahh, I remember that lovely time with my own boys.

Mart,
He just gets cuter day by day! I love that he rolls around when you least expect it, but when you try to memorex it, they are always stubborn and won't do what you want them to! Love him! Wish I could have met him when you guys were visiting...let me know next time you are in town!
Love you!

oh I miss this stage! M was so delightful then--always mugging for the camera his cutest faces and smiles. The rolling (watch it--crawling is right around the corner) was so delightful. I'm glad you are enjoying adorable benji so much. Now I'm singing "Bingo" and probably will all day long!

Not to take away from sweet little Benji [because he is such a sweetie!], but did you forget to post this weeks writing prompt or did I somehow miss it?!
