7 months

our sweet little guy turned 7 months this week. i'm just trying to soak in this sweet time because he'll be running around before we know it.

this month, covington started sitting up all by himself and he loves being able to see the world from this whole new perspective. while he used to like his crinkle toys best, he's moved on to anything that rattles right now. he also loves chasing balls. he still rolls around to get to things but we think he'll be scooting or crawling any day now. he also has 2 teeth that *i think* will come in any day. i never knew teething took so long! i've checked every morning for the last 3 weeks thinking they were going to pop through! he babbles a lot, unless we turn on the video camera, of course, and he thinks yelling is pretty funny. james can still get him to giggle the most and it's the best sound ever. he also loves it when james plays the guitar. he's still pretty laid back and definitely likes getting out to see other people. 

we went to the doctor this morning for a weight check and he's up to a wopping 16.5 pounds, joining the 15%! since starting food last month, he's a great little eater. even when he doesn't really like something, he'll try to smile through it -it's really sweet. so far the favorites are butternut squash, sweet potato, and avocado. 

i can't believe how much he's changed in the last couple months. this is such a fun stage!

happy grandparent's day

to say we are blessed doesn't really begin to express how we feel. thank you for all you do doesn't seem sufficient anymore. we love you guys more than you'll know and are so thankful that covington gets to have you in his life.

so to mia and poppy

and annie and granddad

 and to the sweetest great-grandmothers around - grandmother, meemaw, and mimi

we love you.
happy grandparent's day!

Proverbs 17:6 - Grandchildren are the crown of old men -hehe :)
we pray this will be said of covington one day - 2 Timothy 1:5 - For I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well.

    6 months

    i have no idea how this happened - we have a 6 month old.

     he is every bit as much fun as people told us he would be at 6 months - smiling and playing and starting to sit up. you can just see his little brain putting things together as he watches everything. he has the best little giggle that only james can get when he tickles him. he's weighing in at 15.2 pounds, which is still pretty little at the 10 percentile, but he's 56% at height, so we're holding on to that :) we started food this week too. he's quite the fan of carrots and butternut squash so far and still drinking about 7 ounces of milk 4 times a day. 

    right now he likes sticking out his tongue, playing with his sophie the giraffe and exersaucer, and reading books. he always wants to be sitting up so he can see what's going on. he sucks his fingers all. the. time. he's settled on the first two fingers on either hand and we have to hold his hands down so he won't chew on them while he's eating! he loves being around other people and being outside. he's still sleeping great and still looks just like james. 

    we're just soaking it all in and loving every minute!
