ezra {eight months}

Eight months old!!! My little peanut, ninja nu, ninja warrior, ezzy boy is eight months old! STOP the CLOCK!
He is still an active one, trying hard to sit up and can almost do it (just leans forward a lot), starting to like his exercauser more, loves his siblings and does an "excited" noise when he sees them, loves to for whatever reason watch his siblings go up the stairs as we are holding him going up the stairs and starts laughing and moving his hands in a real excited way. He doesn't stay on his stomach for long before rolling right over. He's always grabbing for things and takes great interest in all his toys. Not really even close to crawling yet. Teething and getting two little teeth in on the bottom. Drooling like crazy. Still living up to his nickname "ninja warrior" as we struggle to feed him his bottle well as he just doesn't seem to have time to take one during the day...silly boy. I do think he's our more "serious" child but he still smiles and is starting to laugh too. His laugh is just contagious and he has just the sweetest, best smile ever. I have to also say, I think he's a daddy's boy. He really loves his daddy! He also takes his bottles best for daddy because daddy is good and consistent with the headlock necessary for feeding him. He now does this little wave with his left hand where it looks like he's just waving at everyone.

{spirit week}

I need to post about spirit week at sister's school cause it was just too fun dressing her up each day according to the category of each new day. My favorite was tacky day because, of course, its always more fun to dress up someone else with all things crazy, wacky and tacky! She had a lot of fun too each day and loved to come home and tell us what everyone looked like, what they were wearing and who won that day for the best dressed category. Here is the fun week in pictures...

day 1: pajama day
 complete with her sleeping mask. she won this day and came home with at free pizza coupon and said her name was called overhead in her class and she got her picture taken

day 2: tacky day
my favorite. so fun dressing up someone else as tacky as you'd like (well, for the most part). she looked so cute! i think she was pretty excited about all the headbands she had on :)

day 3: hat and sunglass day
day three was still chapel day but with a mix of "hat and sunglass"day


day 4: favorite sports team day
day four was favorite sports team day. of course, it was Georgia! GO dawgs!

daddy was excited about this one and even bought her G stickers to put on

day 5: jeans and school colors
day five was wear jeans and school colors

fun first spirit week!!

ezra {7 months}

Little peanut is sure loved around here! At seven months old, he is getting a lot of attention from his biggest brother and his sister too. Just depends on Levi; whether he feels like loving on him or not. He's sleeping a little better at night but is still living up to his nickname, "ninja" due to his crazy ninja moves while taking his bottle. He loves to kick and roll right over to his tummy. He has been introduced to the exersaucer and seems to like it for a little bit at least. He wants to sit up but not quite ready yet.  He also had his first taste with rice cereal and did okay. We just need to keep feeding it to him (its hard to find the time sometimes). He's ticklish and is smiley and cute and we love this little peanut.

seven months old!!!

ezra {6 months}

Six months old and about to celebrate his very first Christmas! He is rolling over like a boss and moving all over the place. He loves to sleep on his stomach. He's not a big fan of the bumbo seat but tries to sit up some when we're holding him or he's sitting in the bouncy seat. He loves to kick and move his little legs like crazy- we think he's really going to like the jumpy thing like his sister did. Not close to crawling and still loves to chew on those little fingers of his. He's still inconsistent with sleeping through the night. He does some crazy, funny thing while taking most his bottles where he moves all around and looks all around and tries to hold his bottle. He'll start to make noises when he gets tried of it (we like to think of it as singing) and then fuss. He's not the best bottle drinker which worries this mama a little. Because of his craziness while eating, he has coined the nickname "ninja" so...we call him ninja a lot cause he's like a ninja warrior at times, throwing out all the ninja moves when eating.  He's a funny little one but we sure love him and have so enjoyed celebrating half a year with this little elf. Can't believe (or maybe I can) that's he's already at this point. Slow it down're killing me!

disclaimer: i got these measurements shortly after he turned six months but actually took this pic the day he turned 7 months. yep, this chalkboard was not my greatest idea to tackle...

ha! i'd think the same if something was looking at me that close too, buddy!
