Aksel seems to look so much older when I put his new hat on him. He looks like such a big boy!

Aksel is a very good little boy, but we are working on his sleep habits. He likes to sleep in our king size bed over sleeping in his nice little crib. Since he was between 3 and 4 months old we have been trying to get him to at least start out the night in his crib, some nights much more successful than others. A few colds interfered in this process (no chance he was sleeping in his crib and he would let everyone know this). Lately he seems to be improving (knock on wood) with his sleeping. We always try to start him off in his crib or pack and play for his naps or nighttime, just to get him used to going down by himself. The other day I was doing something in our room before his nap and put him in his pack and play to play. I was so busy that when I turned to pick him up for his nap he was one step ahead of me. There is nothing sweeter.

Natural Eating

Aksel has never been a big fan of wearing a bib while he eats, so one night for dinner we made a compromise. He kept pulling his bib and wearing a new shirt I did not want him to get it messy, so he got to eat with his clothes off, in just his diaper. He LOVED it!

Mother's Day

Thanks to my little buddy I got to enjoy my very first Mother's Day as a mother. It was great! Lukas, Aksel and my parents made the day very special.

7 Months!!!!!

Time flies when you are having fun!!! Aksel is 7 months old today, can you believe it? He celebrated by going to the doctor to get his cough checked out, which turned out fine, but does have a little ear infection. He loves going there because everyone (I mean everyone) tells him how cute he is and usually one of the office ladies takes him and goes around the whole office to show him off. Dr. Burke gave him a book and that was the best present ever for this little guy (or maybe little is not the word for him anymore, he tipped the scales weighing just over 21 lbs!) Wiped out from his visit he is now snoring in his car seat on the living room floor. Mormor and Papa are coming over for dinner and to visit. Boy it must be tough being 7 months.

Aksel wore his Powell's Books t-shirt today that Grandma Kris and Grandpa Scot gave him. (Scot almost always has a Powell's shirt on). It was only appropriate for this little man to enjoy one of his Grandpa's books as well! He thinks fasting may not be for him right now, he likes to eat too much!
