Ari at 7 Months

Hello there! It’s been a month since the last post (sorry!). I don’t know whether to keep blogging about baby stuff or to try to find new things to post, but here you go – how can I resist posting more cute pictures of my kid?

At 7 months, Ari has been getting better at grabbing – my hair, his water cup, the dog’s tongue, etc etc. He is also doing better at sitting up on his own. He isn’t crawling yet but he does a great impression of a swimmer stuck on dry land when he is trying to crawl. He’ll look at the dog and scream from excitement (he loves Lewis) and then from frustration that he can’t crawl towards Lewis yet. I don’t mind him not being mobile yet since I know it’s a whole new ball game once he is crawling all over the place. Russell has already baby-proofed the living room just in case the kid decides he can crawl afterall.

I’ve been doing a mommy & baby yoga class and I’m liking it. It’s normally just me and another mom in the class. While normally this small class size would make me anxious, it’s actually quite nice. Our yoga teacher will pick up the babies and hold them if need be if/when they get fussy. And yoga is kicking my butt. But it feels so good to work out after a long hiatus.

In other news, I’ve been sewing a lot again. Check out the Etsy shop! 🙂 I decided to combine both shops and see how it goes. I’ve sewn new pillow cases for the Christmas season – it’s an addiction. I just love making stuff for the house. I’ll post a more home pictures soon. It’s long overdue.

Here are more pictures of Ari since you made it through this somewhat jumbled blog post. Thanks for reading!
