Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you are celebrating with those that are closest to you today. We are having a low key day at home, just the 4 of us. We celebrated Thanksgiving with my family last weekend and will be celebrating with Scott’s family on Saturday. Planning to make a breakfast feast (Scott’s favorite meal!), playing, cuddling, and going for a family run!
We have lots to be thankful for this year! #1 on our list – this little guy!
Who turned 7 months last Friday!
New things this month:
- Getting up on his knees and rocking back and forth and sometimes moving a knee –> crawling is just around the corner. Baby gate is installed!
- Blowing raspberries
- Pulling himself up on anything! The coffee table, the fireplace hearth, the bathtub, the dishwasher. . .
- Now is eating 3 meals a day. Cereal for breakfast, fruit for lunch and veggie for dinner.
- Had his 2nd ear infection. Boo.
- Sits all by himself in the bath tub and loves it!
- Loves stroller rides, “petting” Abby, eating paper, getting raspberries blown on his belly, bath time.
Looking forward to. . .
- More new foods!
- Getting baptized in December
- Continuing to see his personality develop
When Laura was here last weekend, we did some more crafts. We made a Thanksgiving Turkey craft using Luke’s hand prints and a foot print.
It was super easy. Here’s how you do it:
- To make the Turkey ‘feathers’. Dip baby’s hand in red paint and stamp 4-5 times on canvas or cardstock. Let dry.
- Repeat with orange paint and stamp 3 times, just overlapping the red hand prints. Let dry.
- Repeat with yellow paint and stamp 2 times. Let dry.
- Finally, dip baby’s foot in brown paint and stamp in the middle of hand prints to make the turkey’s body.
- After the foot print is dry, use white paint to make the eyeballs, and after dry, dot with black paint to make the eyes.
- Dot of orange paint for the nose and a swipe of red paint finishes the turkey face!
- Add ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ and ‘Baby 2012’ if you want.
- I bought some sparkly brown ribbon to hang it with. Just glued to the back with a hot glue gun.
- Easy peasy and super cute!
