Atticus: Seven Months

7 months of this little cutie pie in our lives!  I can't even imagine life before him, he brings so much happiness to us & just goes with the flow (until bedtime then he's a little monster).  He is on the go now scooting all around & loves playing with all his brothers toys, he'll just lay in there & play with him forever.  He's the giggliest, most smiley baby & is showing off his two little teeth all the time!  Love this happy little babe!

Big Moments:

- Atticus is just a little guy, in the 5% so we are working on chunking him up, he is still growing but just his weight has been a mild concern.  So give this boy a cheesecake with a side of fries!  Or.. banana baby food & some extra milk. haha
