Aspen Michael: 7 Months

Dearest Aspen,

Ah how time flies when you are having fun! And boy are you growing...not just physically but personality wise too. You are cheerful and always laughing or smiling. You are calm as a cucumber too.

You love to take a late afternoon nap snuggled up with me on the couch. It is "our" time and something that I definitely cherish. Plus the extra sleep is much appreciated :)

You had your first Thanksgiving which we celebrated in Oregon. It was a rough road getting out there, but you took it like a champ as always. While out west, you enjoyed the animals, lodge feel, and fresh air of Hood River.

Your first tooth finally popped through upon our return to New York so at the end of November/beginning of December. It is a little scraggley thing with rigid edges only partially poking through but we will take it!

You are so close to crawling. You scoot yourself around on your belly forwards and backwards. And at playgroup you were showing off and getting up on your knees. It is just a matter of time until you are on the move!

You are talking up a storm saying "bababa" and "blah blah". Sometimes you hint at saying "momma" which of course melts my heart :)

You had your first visit with Santa and you loved him! Pulling on his beard and smiling away at him. He couldn't get enough of you :)

We celebrated your Papa's 60th birthday with a surprise bday bash! You were the hit of the party especially since you are a miniature replica of him! Dressed in your car outfit just like your Papa you were too darn cute.

We are looking forward to celebrating your first Christmas in just a few days!

I love you!
