My child is starting to "share" things with me!  Today he was sooo cute.  He was on my lap and decided to share his pacifier with me.  He kept trying to shove it into my mouth and was sooo excited when I bit the plastic edge to take it from him.  What a sweetie!

He's also giving raspberries back to us now.  If we blow on his tummy or neck, he'll do it back to our arms and legs!  Ha!  Every once in awhile it goes awry though and he bites, which isn't all that pleasant with those two sharp little teeth.

Pulling Up and Walking!!

Monkey is officially BIG!  He's pulling up on everything he can and walking around the coffee table!  Oh my!

Fun story:  I put him in his crib for a nap the other day and I heard all this racket on the baby monitor. We keep the monitor on the toy shelf next to the bed. I went in to see what was up and found him standing in his crib, leaning way over the side of it. He was holding the cord to the monitor in his hand (the monitor part inside the crib already) and he was throwing toys off the shelf onto the floor.  He was sooo happy with himself and secretly, I was a little happy for him too.  I mean, that's impressive!  However, today the crib was lowered yet another notch, which happens to be as low as it goes.  If he climbs out now, then there's just nothing I can do!

Monkey is officially crawling - quickly I might add.  He's into everything.  A favorite is cords, second only to my shoe laces!  One is an 'Oh no!  You'll electrocute yourself!' and the other is 'Oh, how gross!', so I spend my time untangling objects from his vice-like grip.  Then he looks at me and starts screaming tantrum style.  Let the fun begin!

He turned seven months too!  My tiny baby is quickly growing and that makes me both happy and sad.  Here are his seven month pictures.
