Ashlyn 7 months

No trick photography here, yep, Ashlyn can stand all by herself for a few seconds, and pull herself up on things.
I love the chubber lub on her legs arms and cheeks!
Michael says "Ashy bunny" when I put her hair in pig tails like this.

Mike says bye bye to the paci

Mike is quite addicted to the pacifier but yesterday I noticed that it is messing up his bite and causing a gap between his top and bottom front teeth so I explained this to him, showed him my teeth for comparison and we went and threw a paci away together. Then the next paci that he found he came to me and said, "mommy, paci ruining my teeth, let's throw it away." He is such a smart boy with such great comprehension. Let's hope this transition isn't to painful.

Mike get's 6 stitches

Numbing up in prep for the stiches Mike ran into the corner of the wall and here's the result.

Ouch... He did so good while they stiched him up and he has healed beautifully.

With five kids, I can't believe that he is our first to get stitches.

Mike in his Crib Tent

Michael learned how to climb out of his crib, and my boy who used to love naps and night-nights wouldn't take them anymore - like a puppy who needs to be kenneled! He is now back to his old routine.
