7 and 8 Months

 7 Months Old
 Happy Independence Day!
 On the way to the 4th of July Parade
 Watching his sister drum
 Swinging in the backyard
 He has found a hiding place

 First time in the red car...

 ... And he likes it!

Sissy feeding him 

 First time at the fair

I just love our little Viking to pieces


It is definitely getting harder to take pictures with the blocks

This mama is not ready to have such a mobile child this young.  Time just needs to stop, so I can catch my breath and re-baby proof the house.  Nikolaus is 8 months and can crawl, sit back up from lying down/ or crawl position, he is pulling himself up on everything, and he can climb the stairs!  I guess he is trying to catch up to his big sister, who didn't crawl until she was 10 months old.  Natasha was more the talker (and still is). Nikolaus started to crawl and pull himself up at 7 months (obviously, I missed the 7 month post) and hasn't slowed down since... up goes the baby gate and down goes the crib mattress.  Besides being mobile, Nikolaus has discovered his voice.  He likes to be loud and has started saying da-da and ma-ma.  He is a great eater and a good sleeper and overall a happy, smiley, giggly baby!  We will see how much he has grown when we go to his 9 month well check at the end of the month.
