Swim Lessons

These past few weeks Dane and I did swimming lessons. It was really fun to get in the water and spend time with him and other moms. Our friend Kelly and her son Ollie did it with us, which was great to have friends in the class with us!

Dane actually did really good. Probably because he's still young and just goes with the flow, but I think he may grow up loving the water. He was seriously so cute. He liked floating on his back and "jumping" in the water to me. I put "jumping" in quotes, because it was really just me holding him up and counting to 3 and bringing him back in the water. He can't jump to me just yet, lol.

Jumping in - if you zoom in, you can see his huge smile. He loved this.

More jumping

We'll probably do this again next year, but definitely we will be taking more trips to the pool this summer. Can't wait!

Our 7 monther

Dane hit 7 months yesterday! Hurray! What an amazing son we have. I just love him more and more everyday. He gets even more fun too and his sweet personality comes out a little bit more each day. Here are some fun little tid bits:

- He has 2 teeth (bottom two)
- Started clapping 9 (he does it on command too)
- Is "dancing" now. When we say "dance" or if music just starts to play, he dances. This consists of moving his head and upper body back and forth.
- Sits up like a champ
- Eating some finger foods now
- Says "ba ba ba ba ba ba" - hasn't mastered mama or dada yet
- He plays peekaboo! It's so cute. He'll put a blanket or towel up over his face on his own and pulls it down when we say "peekaboo" - smart little guy
- Stands really well when holding on to our hands or couch.
- Is probably around 19 pounds is my guess and has the chubbiest legs, arms, cheeks and toes around.
- Reaches for us to pick him up
- Is taking 3 decent naps per day. Usually a total of about 3 hours altogether. Much better than he used to do.
- Hasn't started crawling yet, but I think he may start moving before he's 8 months. We'll see!
- Had his first hair cut
- His hair is getting lighter and lighter. We may have a blondie on our hands!
- And we STILL don't know his eye color. It's like a dark bluish, grayish color. Take a look and tell me what you think...
- We celebrated our first Mother's Day together and I am beyond blessed to have him as my son and to have the amazing opportunity to be a mom. I couldn't be happier. (And it sure helps to have the most amazing husband in the world along side me to help raise our sweet boy. Josh is truly the best dad and helps me out so much. I am so lucky)

Durango, CO

Last weekend we made a trip down to Durango, CO to visit Josh's grandpa. Josh's dad and uncle came along too and it was so fun to be able to see them and have Dane meet his great uncle and great grandfather and see his papa again. Dane did great on the drive, which made it easier on Josh and me.

I'm so glad we were able to go. We had such a great time and we love spending time with family so much!
