It’s been a busy month, and we can’t believe how fast time is going. Duke is 7 months!! Greg is officially on summer break meaning we’ve been traveling and spending lots of quality time together. We spent time in Reno with our family and Duke was enthralled with his cousins. They sang to him, danced for him, played with him…I’m convinced he was disappointed to come home and be stuck with only his parents 🙂 He also dipped his feet in Lake Tahoe for the first time…it was a little (ok, very) cold but he loved looking at it!
We also flew to Portland to meet his younger cousin, River, and visit with his auntie Alisha. Duke and River are 10 weeks apart and were both so interested in each other. And him and his auntie had so much fun together 🙂 He did so great on the plane!
Duke also had his first sleepover with Grammie (my mom). He did great and slept straight through the night…which is something he has stopped doing for us.
His Papa and Gigi came for a visit and he went swimming in the hotel pool. He was in for probably 25 minutes and loved every minute. My swim teacher heart had to work with him a little bit, and he didn’t mind when he went under a few times. He’s my little water baby!
He got two teeth this month and kissed his sleeping habits goodbye. He used to fall asleep at 8:30, wake at 6:00 to eat, and then sleep in until 9:30 or so. Once he started teething he’s been waking up crying every 2-3 hours. It also has to do with the fact that he’s exclusively sleeping in his crib now, which was a hard adjustment for him.
We celebrated 4th of July and had lots of friends over. The fireworks are extremely loud at our house…and he only woke up once to their sound.
He continues to be a relatively easy-going and fun baby! We praise God for his health, his demeanor and the people in his life who love him so well.
