I'm SEVEN months old now!

I know some of you are really bummed that you haven't heard from me in two whole months, so I'm going to have to rewind a little to tell you all that I've been up to lately... I spend a lot of my time with my Mommy and Daddy. I think they really appreciate it when I laugh at their jokes, voices and crazy dances. Here's one of us giggling! Did I tell you that I REALLY loved Christmas?
I got tons of presents and got to hang out with my cousins, Claire and Chase...
Aunties and Uncles, Gramma and Papa, and even my Great-Grandma Gladys! Here we all are...
Chase and I couldn't believe they wanted us to wear these Santa hats after being at the photo studio for TWO hours, so we let them know we were done!
I learned how to roll over when my family was altogether for Christmas-
here I am showing Chase my new moves! My Gramma Kaye comes down every Wednesday from her new home in the woods (about 30 minutes away) to help my Mommy get stuff done cause I like to keep her real busy the rest of the week! Gramma holds me during naptime which is a real treat!
Another new thing I do is read books. How I LOVE reading- here I am with Papa!
I have this NEW toy that I think is the coolest ever and my Mommy sure likes how occupied I can be in it, too. Basically, I have my own spaceship!
Here's me at 5 months old- can't quite sit up yet.
I'm sporting Dad's home team once again- West Virginia University!
But, look at me now! Just in the past couple weeks, I've mastered it! Mom just threw this one in to show off my gorgeous smile! Another new thing about me is that I have a tooth on the bottom. Boy, did it hurt coming in.
I won't let Mommy take a picture of it quite yet- next time!
Oh yeah, and I had my first haircut on January 1st! Papa was my barber :)
I guess my comb-over was kinda going out of style!
My Great Grandma Gladys gave me this cute bear- just my size!
We practice sitting up together.Something else new that I'm doing is eating big people food.
And I LOVE IT... now I eat bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes, squash, peas, carrots, green beans, and pears. Haven't come across anything I haven't liked! (Kinda like my Daddy!)
Here's me and Dad, just this morning, checking out our newly fallen snow.
Just yesterday it was 70 degrees- man, I live in a crazy place.
Oh yeah, and here's a sideways video of me in my new jumping toy- SUCH FUN!
(Mom couldn't figure out how to turn it right side up- sorry about that!)

PS~ I think LIFE is the best gift around.
Mom says I'm the happiest person that she's ever met!
Until next time, friends.
