Gideon is 7 Months Old!

I’m a week late getting this on my blog. Gideon is actually 7 months and 1 week old today. Every month with Gideon gets better and more fun. He is such a delightful baby, and it’s a pleasure to take care of him. He’s so big and strong, and so very intelligent. I love seeing Gideon’s personality evolve and develop more every day. He is determined, sweet, expressive, and excited to learn. Gideon is also very cuddly which makes me very happy.  September was full of fun, family, new foods, sippy cups (he’s getting better at it), and making new associations and connections with the world around him. The two signs that he seems to understand pretty consistently are the signs for “milk” or “leche” and “all done”. We are now introducing “diaper” or “pañal”, “drink”, “eat”, and “more” or “más”. Object permanence has set in pretty good, and turn taking is all the rage right now. Gideon is so much fun to play with. Did I mention he’s so smart? I noticed he was starting to get bored with his “baby toys”. One Toys R Us run later, and I can just see how interested Gideon is in learning how to make them work.

Gideon is a solid sitter now, and is serious about moving forward when he’s belly down on the floor. He can now put his knees underneath him, and does a great downward dog. He’ll be crawling in no time. I can’t wait!

Enjoy this video and these pictures of Gideon’s first September.

We had to leave early because it started to rain, but Gideon was such a good sport. Didn't complain once.
