7 Months - A Progress Report

Hello out there! I celebrated my 7 month birthday on May 27. What an exciting time for me. Mom told me my MBOs (management by objectives) for my 7th month were teeth and mobility. I also added my own "get into stuff" objective.  Here's how I'm doing:

Teeth: Complete. After a few weeks of nubs, on May 28, Mom spotted two bottom teeth.

Mobility: In progress. I'm really good at creeping (AKA army crawling). I'm working on my speed and endurance. On May 29, I bumped my head while creeping around and got my first of what is sure to be many bruises.

Getting Into Stuff: In progress (I'll always be working on this one!). I've blown this one out of the water. I can now open drawers and cabinets. I haven't figured out how to keep them open, but that's next. I'm really interested in the plastic faces on the walls. For some reason, Mom and Dad covered them up with plastic plugs. That's no fun. I'm also interested in wires. Dad likes them so much, they have to be cool. On June 5, I pulled myself up to standing in my crib for the first time. Watch your breakables people!

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.


Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.


Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
