ELLIOT JAMES JOSEPH WHITE (aka El Jim Joe, Chubba Bubba, Little Joe, and others I can't think of right now.)
My smiley little boy is 7 months old. Is so close to crawling, yet he gets to where he wants to go, most of the time. He has gotten to the point that if Mom walks away, he does not like it. He is also getting three more teeth. Which will make seven altogether. He is in love with food. Carrots were the only thing so far that his body didn't really like.
Whenever I put the camera up, he is full of smiles. He smiles a lot anyways. He is not happy in one place anymore. He gets all over the living room. Which means we have to keep it clean. When he gets stuck, he lets us know. He likes to pull himself up on things too.
He loves being outside on the ground (which has not been a lot). But the weather had been good the last few days and we went out. He loves to explore the leaves, dirt, and rocks with his mouth of course.
He has been doing this a lot. His push-ups. It is so fun to watch.
His smile melts my heart. It brightens my day, no matter what I am going through. It tells me, "Hey mom, life is not that bad, look I'm smilin'." We have been so blessed with him in our life. He has such a sweet dispostion. Look at that belly. He is about 20 pounds. It is about time I get out the 12 month old clothes, the 6-9 months are getting a little snug, as you can see. We put the baby swing away yesterday. He had been stopping it everytime and it didn't swing very well, because he was too heavy. It is always sad to put the baby things away, they grow up too fast. Thanks for the smiles Elliot!
