the first few black & white photos are from earlier this week, but the rest are from today. he’s seven months old today! so we went outside to play when Mark finished work, then went out for dinner (and brought a banana for the little man to gnaw on). he’s giving us kisses and picking pine needles out of the grass and loving his long wooden spoon these days. he loves to screech and snuggle.

Mark has been on spring break all week, and, except for the events just an hour north of us that had us checking in with friends and family a few times, we couldn’t have asked for a better one. we took family walks, tended to the yard (the little man is already getting darker than his mama!), brewed beer, watched and listened to baseball, cooked & ate well, read, and just had an all around great time. thomas learned he loves chewing on broccoli stems, attended his first concert (folk music, down in Fall River), tasted a lot of pine needles (but never really tried to eat any), tested his parents’ patience with a few sleepless nights, and probably grew half a pound. he’s still so stinking cute we can hardly stand it.

lots of noise making lately. restlessness. if i don’t take him on a long walk with the dog in the morning, he fusses all afternoon. he wants us to play with him all of the time, walk him around, show him things, make new noises at him. and he’s grooooooowing.

cute overload

IMG_2784

No big updates lately. Little man is getting stronger and more dexterous, eating more solid foods, giggling more, making new noises. We had a couple of weeks of terrible sleep (waking to nurse every hour or so), but we turned on the humidifier Sunday night and every night since then, and whether it’s the humidity he needed or the white noise, he’s back down to waking 1-2 times a night to nurse! Oh man, Mark & I needed the sleep, too.
