|Rylee really does smile! I get lucky enough to capture it on camera sometimes.|

As of yesterday, Ayden is now getting up on all fours! He has rocked back and forth a bit on his hands and knees. I'm pretty sure it won't be long before we have a crawler! And Rylee isn't very far behind! She is a funny little person and does more planking than getting on her hands and knees though. She actually gets on her hands and TOES! No knees touching, hands down with arms out as far as she can get them in front of her. Wish I could do that! I keep wanting to get a picture of it, but I am always to slow to grab my phone.
Oh! Ayden has his first tooth! It broke through on Friday and boy is it sharp! I have to be careful letting him bite down on my fingers now because that sucker hurts! Unfortunately, this whole teething process isn't treating Ayden too well. Putting him down to bed at night has become a bit of a challenge. He still goes down for naps relatively easy, but that sometimes doesn't go well either. He's been a bit of a grumpypants, but yet we can still get lots of smiles from him too.
|I just love that smile!|
Rylee has now slept a record 8 1/2 hours in her crib, although it has only happened once. It still varies anywhere from 3-8 hours before I have to go get her to finish out the night sleeping with me. There is no consistancy in how long or short it will be. I thought we'd made a break through when she went 3 days in a row sleeping 6-8 1/2 hours straight, but then it was down to only a few hours again. It varies and I just keep reminding myself that this phase will eventually pass. I do enjoy getting extra cuddle time with her, but I also look forward to the day I can sleep the whole night in my own bed.
Now, for the rest of their 7 month birthday pictures!
|I love the look on Rylee's face|
My mom was here when I took these pictures and she commented on the workout I was getting trying to get some decent pictures! It's not easy when you have two little rugrats who don't want to sit still, and even harder when you have one that is SO difficult to get a smile from for the camera! Here are some of the OUTTAKES from our little photo shoot:
|No words. Just laugh.|
|I believe I caught Rylee in the middle of a sneeze!|
|"Stay back Brother. I got this!"|
|"Mooooom! I'm so tired of that stupid flower in my face!"|
|"Mmmmm. You taste so good!"|
