It’s hard to believe, but we are on the downhill to one. Our butter ball is 7 months old and full of smiles, still not sleeping through the night, becoming quite the wiggle worm and has two toofies! Dixon had an adventurous month! He…-dressed like a true Machacian (tank, jorts and crocs)
-said his first word, “MaMa” -celebrated Memorial Day weekend in Manchac -took his first swamp bath -thinks red, white and pirate is a thing -started holding his bottle because he can feed himself faster than Mom and Dad apparently -loves his rainforest jumpy so much he falls asleep in it after every workout -was happy about his 6 month appointment until shots happened -sleeps just like Dada-had his first hotel stay in Jacksonville, Florida
-went on his first vacation -roadtripped through Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina-really likes hotel stays with Mama and Dada-saw the beach for the first time -explored Charleston-had his first taste of Sweet tea-saw a 800 year old oak tree -visited Minden for 10 days -got his dedication pictures with all his favorite people -stole toys from Aunt Kelly at the Minden garage sale -sleeps in bed with Mama when Dada isn’t around -gives the stink eye pretty well -tried to sneak in Mama’s suit case to Mexico-had a blast with Bren Bren for 4 days while Mama was away -can eat baby food like a champ -got some cuz time -relaxed with Papaw Tuby -was turned into butter by Bren Bren -visited the Monkey’s in Woodworth -celebrated Aunt Lizzy’s grandmother’s 90th birthday -likes grocery shopping with no pants-can sit up like it’s his job
I feel like Dixon is changing so much this month. He no longer likes being on his back. He has to be
moving squirming constantly. He tries to talk all the time. My favorite thing is how smiley he is. Every time he makes eye contact with you, his big grin lights up the room. He is still a good cuddle bear when he’s sleepy. He eats like no other. Not only is he eating baby food twice a day, but he hasn’t slowed down his milk intake. He still longs for a bottle around 3am and I just can’t let him cry it out. I hear is tummy growl and quickly hand him a bottle. Speaking of bottle, he can hold it! This has been a huge help. Especially on road trips. I no longer have to pull over to feed him. I’m pretty sure once he starts sleeping though the night that I’ll think this whole kid thing is easy. Right? He is such a good baby and brings so much happiness into our household and lives. I am starting to forget what life was like without him.
