Today Hayden is seven months old! If you can't tell from these pictures, he wants to reach for and grab everything! We put a little Chrsitmas tree in his room, so I tried to take a picture of him sitting by it. It took several tries, because he was so into grabbing it! I gave up on trying to get him to look at the camera. . . the tree was too enticing! So far he's not as amused with our big Christmas tree. I guess this one's just the right size to get his hands on!
Below is Hayden's monthly picture in his chair. He was trying to reach for the me or the camera in this one. I am amazed how quickly these 7 months with Hayden have gone. It's so weird to think that he's closer to being one than being a newborn. No wonder people always say "They grow up so fast!" Now I understand. These past 7 months have been the happiest for our new little family and I look forward to many more to come! We go back for the 2nd half of the flu vaccine tomorrow, so hopefully we can see how much Hayden now weighs. I'm not sure that I shared his stats after his six month checkup, but he weighed 15.15 (25th%) and was 25 1/2 inches long (25%). I bet he's around 17 pounds now, but we'll see!
