Theo || 7 Months

As every month creeps by, we fall in love with Theo even more.  This month has felt more momentous than others, he's met some very exciting milestones and was a very busy boy!  He met my dad's side of the family this month, and was just the sweetest boy around them.  He also took his first trip to the lake (where he promptly fell asleep on the boat), attended his first wedding where he danced the night away, and  attended an ordination to the priesthood where he screamed so we were outside the whole time.  Somehow we got to 7 months before he had a car seat blowout that required the whole thing to be taken apart and washed, and of course Paul wasn't home, and I was covered in poop.  This month we dropped the Merlin's Magic Sleep Suit, while teething which was terrible.  I was a walking zombie, this for us was worse than when he was a newborn.  We also did some gentle sleep training, and now he falls asleep on his own for naps.  I just put him in a sleep sack, turn on the white noise and leave and he goes to bed on his own.  It is amazing.  Now for the adorable photos.

Theo || 6 Months

1/2 year has flown by, and sweet baby Theo isn't such a little baby anymore.  I'm a basket full of emotions, I can't wait to see who he becomes but also where is my 5 pound baby.  Please give him back.  He turned 6 months on May 11th. 
Theo started on purees this month, and he is a food lover.  I like to call him my baby bird because he just opens his mouth wide and waits for the spoon.  He loves sweet potato, it is without a doubt his favorite food.  But with solids come more poop, oh yay.
He's a mover, never sitting still. He gets frustrated sometimes because he wants to get somewhere and just can't get there, yet.  I'm thinking he will be crawling soon.  He's pushing up onto his hands, and trying to move his legs so I think he'll be mobile too soon.
We are solidly in the phase of life where I get nothing done.  Days go by where I don't open my computer, weeds are growing up quite tall and I have quite the pile of bibs to finish for the etsy shop.  However, my heart is full and so is the camera on my phone. 
He took his first short road trip up to Michigan to see our friends Angie, Bret, and pup Stormy.  He did pretty well, sleeping all the way up, but was a little fussy coming home.  I'm sure I am forgetting something of note, but oh well.  Now for the abundance of adorable photos.

Ocean Inspired || Molehills Quilt

A few weekends ago Theo and I went to a baby shower for one of my old co-workers.  She is due in June with a baby boy, who I have dubbed Theo's new best friend.  When I found out I was pregnant with Theo, I felt this immense responsibility in raising a boy to be a gentleman.  We reveled in the privileged to raise boys together.  I wanted to sew something special for her,  so I took inspiration from her beach nursery theme and sewed a molehills quilt. 

Theo acted as a good little model baby.  Don't worry he is paid in snuggles and kisses.  I have yet to make a molehills in girly colors, so someone have a girl please.  Also, what colors should I make the next one in?  It is just such a fun patern I want to sew another one.  Maybe I should start the one for my bed... maybe.

Theo || 5 Months

Well I'm very late to the game here, but Theo turned 5 months on the 11th.  Things have been a little very quiet on the blog because Theo went through some sleep regression, which was hell.  He went from sleeping through the night to waking up 10 times a night some nights.  To add to that, we are  going through a "all I want is mama" phase.  Not all the time, but when he's especially tired he only wants me, which brings a whole new set of challenges.  I love every moment with him, but sometimes I  need the ability to cook dinner, or shower.  This month more than ever I loved watching him learn.  He was so into the world around him, it was exciting to see him interact and play with everything. 

I feel like he turned into a chunk this month, he wasn't eating any more but he really found a way to pack on the pounds.  His double chin is impressive.  But even more important, how the hell is my baby 5 months old?    One day I also hope we will solve the mystery of what color his eyes are going to be.
