7 Months...

Dear Jacoby Cade Rogers,

You are 7 months old today! I can't believe how quickly time passes. You weighed 18.0 lbs. this morning, and you were too busy moving around to get measured accurately. Most of your clothes are in the 9-12 month range except for your GAP outfits which are 6-12 months in size.

In the past few weeks, you have started doing some pretty cool stuff...
1. You are sitting up on your own and playing with toys while you sit. You no longer deflate or fall to the sides. You do get tired of the sitting position though - since you are a "mover and a shaker".
2. You cut 2 bottom teeth last week - in one day! You drooled like crazy and were awful fussy, but the joy of seeing your first 2 teeth was priceless.
3. YOU STARTED CRAWLING! I was so happy to be able to see you take your first 2
"crawling" steps. You are not by any means going at a good pace yet, but you are definitely moving. You had been getting up on all fours for a while now, and you would do headstands and move your feet, but not your hands. You finally decided to "go for it" and move your hands...and it worked! Nice job, little man!

4. You are reaching your arms up when you want us...okay, so you are only doing this for Daddy. I have witnessed it one too many times! It's okay, I can't get upset at that. I am happy to see that you love your Daddy as much as your brother and I do.
5. You have become completely attached to your big brother, Jaydon. You smile at him like you've never smiled at us, and it's such a good feeling to see that you are already looking up to him. I hope that you and your big brother love each other forever!
6. You have developed quite a strong personality. I can tell you that you definitely did NOT get that from your Daddy. It took 2 people to make you so if your Daddy didn't give you that trait, then I'll let you guess who did. :)
You will push your bottle away when you don't want anymore, you will shut your mouth TIGHT when you are done eating, you will SCREAM at the top of your lungs to get my attention, you will look at me from the corner of your eye when you've dropped a toy and then smile. Hmmm...

Your Daddy and I never thought that it was possible to love more than one child. You have shown us these past few months that you absolutely can love more than one child. You have shown us that our hearts still melt whenever milestones are achieved. You have shown us that children come in all shapes, sizes, and personalities...and even though you are more needy than your brother was, that just makes you special - it makes you Jacoby, and I love you for being you.

Your Mommy has fallen off the blogging wagon, so please take note that she hadn't blogged in over 2 weeks, but didn't forget to update everyone about your 7-month birthday.

I will attach pictures tomorrow. The camera needs to be charged before I can do that.

Jacoby, thank you for being so special. I love you with all of my heart, and we can't wait to see what this next months brings us...

Love,
Mom
