Lincoln -7 Months Old

Lincoln is 7 months old and really fun. He has ALOT of energy and personality. He mostly speaks in vowels, no consonants yet, so no "mama, dada, baba" yet. He is sitting up, and rocking on his hands and knees, so its just a matter of when he'll take off and begin crawling. He sleeps from about 930pm-730am or so, but Saturday surprised us and slept until 9am!! It was amazing! He doesn't nap well at daycare, so he usually takes a 45-60 minute nap in the evening between 6 and 7. Lincoln is a blast and he is starting to be a lot of fun, but in the evenings he is pretty high maintenance. Tired, maybe teeth coming in finally, fussy and does not want to be put down. I am really hoping most of it can be blamed on teeth. Looks like a bottom one might be close. He has the best laugh, and giggles a lot when you startle him, or say BOO loud- very cute. I really wish you could hang with Lincoln! He is such a sweet baby. He likes to give kisses and will reach out and hold your face and plant a wet, open mouthed kiss on you! its adorable! He loves to jump and does constantly on your lap while holding him or in his exersaucer and 'johnny jump-up' - if he's been jumping and you pick him up, he'll continue to jump on your hip while being carried around! He is beginning to eat stage 2 foods and in the next month or so, we'll be able to let him try cherrios and other 'finger foods'.
