7 months and 7 years

Jack and I celebrate our 7 year anniversary today, and Leo celebrates 7 months of life! It is a happy day for all of us.

Leo is still the happiest baby on the block. He has completely charmed everyone in our new ward at church. They all have to come by our pew to catch one of his million dollar smiles, and to run their fingers through his fuzzy hair. What a cutie!

Leo is talking and babbling a lot. He's discovering new sounds that he can make every day. He can just entertain himself for hours. He's rolling all over the place, and is learning to move himself closer to the object he has his eye on. And lately he's really into faces. He'll stroke your cheek, pull your nose, touch your eyes, and grab at your hair.
Leo is a whopping 18 1/2 pounds now, and is 28 1/2 inches long. He is looking less and less like a baby, and that makes us a little sad. He's growing up too fast.

For our anniversary Jack and I went on a real date! My friend Candace watched Leo, and we drove into DC. We had dinner at the Bistro Bis on Capitol Hill (Yummy French food) and then went on the "Monuments by Moonlight" tour. It was very cool to see all the monuments at night, all lit up. (I love Washington, and am so excited to be living here.)

It was wonderful to spend the evening with Jack, and to have some one on one time. He is still my sweetheart, and I love him with all my heart. Happy Anniversary honey! Seven years of wedded bliss. We have had so many wonderful experiences together, and we look forward to many, many more.
