Let me tell you about being 7 months old.
When you’re 7 months old you can sit up on your own and grab things like coffee cups, phones, computers, and other people’s food and put it in your mouth. When your 7 months old you get to shout things like “BUUUHH BUUUUUUHHHHH BUUUUUUUUUUH” and “RAH RAH RAAAAH RAAAAAAHB”, (Rob is convinced Max is saying his name) everyone thinks it’s cute. And when you’re 7 months old you you’ve had your first ear infection, and reaction to an antibiotic (Seriously, this poor kid has all my horrible allergies). When you’re 7 months old you start to feed yourself those little yogurt drops, and if you’re lucky mom and dad might give you a taste of their vanilla ice cream (GASP!). When you’re 7 months old staying still long enough to have your picture taken is reeeeally hard. And when you’re 7 months old you start sleeping for more than 2 hours at a time (OK, not really. But I thought that if I wrote it, maybe it would become true?).
