What a momentous weekend :-) I turned 26 and Eóin turned 7 months. We had a fun time on Friday - Jonathan worked from home and during his lunch took a walk with us. The funny thing about our walk was that we found a nukey/su-su/pacifier that Eóin had thrown out of his stroller earlier in the week! One run through the dishwasher and it was good as new! We went to a nearby Italian restaurant for dinner and I got a free brownie sundae.
It's been a big year in my life. From giving birth to moving home it's been a pretty busy time. God has been very good to me this year. I have learned a lot of things. I have learned that one of my favorite sounds is a little ba-ba-ba coming from Eóin's room in the morning (depending on how early it is:). I am learning to be content in whatever position God puts me in and no matter what I have, there is always enough to give to others. I am learning that I love my husband more and more every time I see him playing with our son. And so much more but you don't need a novel :)
Eóin has had a very busy month. He has learned to say ba-ba and ga-ga and all kinds of combinations of the two. He sits and practices them and it's so cute to listen to. He loves for us to hold him so that he can "walk" around - especially if we are kicking a ball around! He has tried lots of different foods and only turned down green beans (but they are back on the menu this week). He can play peek-a-boo and actually understand what he's doing. He loves to "hide" with mammy under blankets and burpy cloths and whatever else we can put over our head. He has had his first visit to the doctor for being sick - not a fun first. And my favourite new first is that he learned how to give kisses (or actually gum our faces and get us totally covered in slobber!)
Here are some pictures of our big 7 month old!
