Shrade is 7 months!

This month Shrade started solid foods. His first meal was Super Porridge made with ground brown rice. All of Shrade's food is homemade. He eats avocado, banana, nectarine, butternut squash, sweet potato, pears and asparagas. He usually eats these foods combined together like nectarine and butternut squash (yum!) or in his Super Porridge. He also continues to drink 30-32 oz of formula everyday. He's a growing boy!

Shrade went on several trips this month. He went to Marysville and saw Great Uncle Steve and Great Aunt Carol as well as mama's first Kindergarten class graduate from high school. Then he went to Vancouver, WA to see cousin Ethan graduate from Kindergarten.

Just last weekend he went to Oak Harbor and saw Grandma Nettie and Grandpa Jeff as well as Great Grandma Layne. Whew, what a traveler!

He also learned to drive! (NOT!)

This month was very special because it was daddy's birthday and his first Father's Day.

One last new activity is family bike rides. Shrade has been to the Foothills Trail in Orting and Puyallup River Front Trail. On Father's Day we were caught in a thunder and lightening storm!

Shrade also got his 2 front teeth, plays independently in his exersaucer or play yard, has signed up for the Summer Reading Program and can sleep up to 10 hours at night. (Some nights not so much!)

Shrade is now 20 lbs and 27.5 inches long. We love our precious bundle from heaven. A highlight of the day is prayer time with daddy before going to bed. Good night, sleep tight!
