{7 months}

Snuggle Bug turned 7 months on Monday. I cannot believe he's practicing using a sippy cup, taking a bottle each day, and attempting finger foods. He'll be driving before we know it!

This month's photo shoot was held in the evening. A lack of natural light and a baby ready for dinner left me with only a few good shots. He is also constantly moving some part of his body and wants to touch/put in his mouth everything he sees. As frustrating as this can be while trying to capture him on camera, he is such a joy. That contagious smile and heart-warming giggle make every day better than the last.
