rub a dub dub

bathtime with scotty just gets more fun all the time. we just got him this big floating duck contraption and he loves it even more than i could have hoped! this little boy loves to splash his hand and feet and lounge about in his mini hot tub. it's pure entertainment!
but it just wouldn't be right to let you think that scott is all giggles and smiles these days. he's been going through a bit of a rough patch with teething and some possible seperation anxiety and we tend to see this sad little face more often than we'd like to.
i finally took him to the doctor yesterday to make sure he doesn't have an ear infection or something but we got a clean bill of health. i guess he's just diagnosed as grumpy. :)

three's company

our little boy just keeps getting so much more fun ... and exciting!
his rolling has gone from a new talent to a serious means of transportation. and it's throwing james and i for a loop! (he only rolled off the couch twice though, and we didn't find any serious side effects) he's also gotten two more teeth (his upper front teeth) so he can bite our fingers that much harder. his pediatrician suggested that we don't let him bite us. thanks doc.
scott is also learning to help with the chores around the house. he's learning to work that thumb and index finger and is picking all sorts of stuff off the floor. and he LoVeS going for rides in the laundry basket!
he's also getting so smart! on tuesday i was playing with a xylophone and showing him how to pound on it. the next thing i know, he's making music of his own! i swear that's gotta be advanced for a 7 month old! and check it out - just the other day i caught him reading! or maybe he was just eating the pages, but either way, he's a smart cookie!
my favorite thing when i was little was to build forts out of blankets. i have always planned on someday building blanket forts with my kids. well scott was having a bad day of teething a little while ago so i decided that blanket fort building was going to start a little earlier than i had anticipated. and it worked like a charm! scott was in seventh heaven rolling around in the fort.
here's a shot of all three of us wedged in the blanket fort. everything is more fun when daddy's around.
here is a cute video of scott in the fort. though i have to warn you that i - for some unknown reason - was using my ridiculously high pitched mickey mouse voice when i was filming this. so you may want to turn the volume down!
