asher: 7 months

3 weeks ago this sweet man turned 7 months old!
He's growing so quickly & I feel like this month I have had to let go of the snuggly infant phase for real. I mean, it's probably been at least two months of me denying it, but it's getting harder & harder to overlook how quickly he is growing.

Some notable things from this past month:

You are FINALLY (sometimes) sleeping through the night. Hallelujah, praise Jesus, Amen.
It's been life changing & much appreciated.
You are also in massive teething mode, working on your top two front teeth now, so of course that occasionally throws a wrench in your sleep.
Just today, you sat yourself up on your own for the first time.  I went to get you out of your crib, and there you were, sitting up so pretty & proud of your sweet self.
You also had another huge milestone today & pulled up on the coffee table. You can go ahead and stop all this growing up now.  I think you've accomplished enough today to last you at least a few months ;)
You've stopped showing your lungs off as much, which mama appreciates and stick to the quieter "babas" & "mama's and "aghoos"

Love you so much sweet mister!

this post...

is pretty much just a handful (ok, a really big handful) of my favorite photos from our impromptu photo session yesterday.  We took advantage of the long weekend to get outside and snap a few photos of the kids. They are growing too fast (7 and 27 months!) and I have been neglecting my camera for far too long. It's only taken me 6 months since our move to dust off the camera and take a few good pictures of my kiddos. Late afternoon mood swings were kicking in and naptime was beckoning for the littler one so I was actually surprised to find a few good photos on my card (you know, I only took 100)!
Here are my favorites...mostly for the grandparents & my own enjoyment, but feel free to browse!

I love these two.
