7 Month Stats

 At seven months old, Aaron is 27 inches long (50th percentile) and weighs 18lbs 8oz (45th percentile).  And the pediatrician said that he was the definitely the cutest, sweetest, smartest baby she had ever seen!  I'm pretty sure that's what I heard!  ;-)

7 Months

Baby Boy is 7 months old!  At 7 months, Aaron is SO much fun!  He's happy just about all of the time.  He loves baths, music, and chasing after his sisters in his walker.  He can pretty much sit up, but never chooses to do so.  If you put him in a sitting position, he almost always arches his back and tries to stand up.  He's also close to crawling.  He gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth.  I'm just waiting for him to take off one day!  He has three teeth and is working on the fourth.  He eats just about all fruits and vegetables and loves crackers. He is a decent sleeper.  He almost never sleeps through the night, but he goes to bed easily and takes 2-3 good naps a day.

He is sweet as pie and we love him to pieces!

Rayna Update

I just feel blessed beyond belief to be able to type this, but Rayna is doing AWESOME with preschool!  She's been getting good reports everyday in her agenda.  And the best part is....she loves it!!  She really does!  She's so excited to go to school every morning.  I think the hardest part is going to be breaking the news that there's no school on Saturday.  Who knew?!
 Mrs. Mao totally spoils the parents in her class by posting pictures on her classroom website on a regular basis.  Thank you for the pictures, Mrs. Mao!

Rayna--the big (pre)school girl!

 Today Rayna started preschool and she did GREAT!  We were fortunate that she has the same preschool teacher that Molly had last year.  We all love Mrs. Mao and Rayna has been so excited about starting school.  We talked about it all throughout the Christmas break, but I was still afraid she was going to have a really hard time with the transition.  But Mrs. Mao emailed me this morning and said she was doing well, and then I talked to her after school and she said she had a great day!  Molly has been very helpful preparing Rayna and even went in with her this morning to show her around her new class.  She's such a good big sister!
A little nervous....
This place is fun!
Molly was excited to go back to school today, too!

Rayna's Haircut

Rayna starts preschool on Monday so we decided to give her a "big girl" haircut.  I really love her long hair and long bangs, but the truth is she doesn't really keep bows and clips in for very long so she ends up spending the majority of her life with her hair in her face.  So we asked Mrs. Newman to give Rayna a haircut and I just LOVE it.  I think she looks just adorable!

 Today was Will and Shawna's last day in NC.  They left tonight to head back to Tennessee--sad!!  But we had a great last day together.  We wrote the Light Rail to ImaginOn but this time we had two new babies!  The kids had a great time riding the train and exploring at ImaginOn.  Fun times!
