Baby Owen ~7 months old~

Owen turned 7 months old yesterday. Here are some not-so-great 7-month pictures, but they'll do. He loves to sit up, although he's so wiggly he ends up toppling over fairly quickly if there are no barriers around him. He also loves to kick (lying down) and jump (standing up with help) a lot. He rolls all over the place now. If he wants to get something or go somewhere, he rolls. This results in many bonks on the head, getting stuck mid-roll (he hates that), and getting wedged under and in between things. He doesn't get the army-crawling/scooting thing at all yet. (I'm not disappointed--I have a feeling he's going to be a busy one.) He always has to be playing with something. His current favorite toys are paper (seen here), clean diapers (a good, safe alternative to paper), and plastic-y/foil-y packages that crinkle really well (like Kirkland baby wipes and Yogos, which, incidentally, we discovered the latter makes a very good church toy when desperate). And when he's not getting as much supervision, he LOVES rattles. He immediately shakes everything he picks up to see if it makes noise. His favorite new tricks are gurgling, spitting (not just slobbering; I mean actual spitting with his tongue out between his lips), and most recently "da-da-da-da-da-da." And, as you can see, I cannot get out the camera to take his picture without Evan jumping in: "Take a picture of Evan?"

So I completely forgot about your blog until tonight! I'm retarded! And I hope you get informed when you get new comments, because otherwise you might not see this since it is so far down the list. But anyways, this Evan wanting to be in the picture thing reminds me a little of someone else we know in this family....a certain Auntie Em....

Kate, you are so right!!! I think he's spending a little too much time around her! :)
