7 months old!

These photo shoots are hit or miss these days, because Nico is the wiggliest little bub, but he was acting like a ham during his seven month shoot, so we got some decent pics. 

Month seven was the best yet! He kicked off the month on "vacation" in Georgia. We spent a long weekend on an adult vacay to Mexico and my mom and aunt scooped him up and flew him to Georgia for a week (they're saints!). He spent the week playing with new toys, swimming every day, and celebrating July 4th with his entire Georgia fan club. I think he was a little bummed he had to come back to California. 

The biggest update in our house is that Nico officially started crawling. He refuses to stay on his back (even when we're changing his diapers or changing his outfit, which makes life fun), so he's been flipping over for a while, but now there is no stopping him. His favorite past time is crawling to and chewing on electrical cords, so the days of having a chill baby are over. He tries to pull himself up on everything, and although he hasn't succeeded yet, we lowered his crib just in case. 

He's also started eating more and more foods - pureed meats (yum...), avocado, banana, almond butter (his new fave), and veggies. He's still teeny (2nd percentile for weight) but long. He also had a double ear infection this month, but he remained cheery, chill, and sweet. 

Life keeps getting better and better with this little dude. We love you so much, Nico.

6 months old!

Okay...I waited another month and I'm clearly slacking on keeping the updates alive, but thus is life of a working mom, I guess. Here are Nico's 6 month photos, and month 7 coming up this weekend. In month 6, Nico:

Traveled to Wilmington, NC (where Lucas is from) to surprise his Nana. We had a travel day from hell (thanks to United mechanical issues), but even with 6 (!) hours of delays, he was a patient and sweet little traveler. What a trooper. He loved his first trip to Wilmington, where he got to spend time with Nana's pups, go to the beach 3 times with his Abuelo, and splash in Nana's pool. He's already excited about visiting again soon.

I went back to work right after that trip, and I immediately flew off to London for a team offsite. I was a nervous wreck about leaving Nico for a week, but he couldn't have cared less. Nico and Lucas had a boys week, where they swam, had drinks with the guys, and he continued his daycare routine like a champ.

In month 6, he continued to sleep 12 hours straight through the night and woke up giggly and happy every single day. He ended the month wanting to crawl so, so bad, but just turned in circles and scooted backwards. We love you so much, Nico.
