Silly 7th Month Old!

A little delayed in posting Garrett's 7 Month snapshots but better late than never!  He is growing up so fast, it seems that everyday he changes in some way.  The fist month I took his picture on the blue blanket he looked so little (and laid so still), not he's as big as the blanket and I had a hard time taking one without him grabbing the paper and rolling away.
Garrett has his two bottom teeth and one top one has broken through with another close behind.  He has been up on all fours rocking away now for a couple weeks but all he goes is backwards and mommy is fine with that.  If he crawls as quick as he rolls all over we're in trouble (and so is his sister).
He loves eating and we haven't found a food that he dislikes yet.  Jenna snuck him some Cheerios from her breakfast a couple weeks ago and he did really well with them so he's been getting them more frequently and loves them.  We love to listen to him "talk".  His favorite noise is clicking his tounge and making motorboat sounds....very loudly with TONS of drool. 
He'll give just about anybody smiles and will put his hands out to you if he wants to come to you...of course when he's by mom he just teases everyone and burries his head in my shoulder and giggles, love it!
While he still loves sitting in his bouncer and jumping like crazy, he really is so content sitting on the floor playing with toys.  His favorite is his Leap Frog drum, which can be loud when he's banging away!  Apparently Jenna isn't too fond of it either as it has gone MIA on more than one occassion.  I'll find it hidden under the bed, inside an end table cabinet and ask her if she put it there....her response "yes mom, but it's SO annoying!"  Oh dear Jenna, your little brother has only just begun to be annoying to you.  He as even shown his fiesty side and will grunt or yell in protest when she takes a toy away from him or moves him out of her way.  Watch out Jenna!
We've been spending a lot of time outside enjoying the nice weather.  He really enjoys being in the stroller and playing with toys on the deck or on a blanket in the driveway.  Sorry buddy, we'll eventually have grass for you to play in.
Can't wait to see what the next month has in store for our little Garrett!
