7 Months & Winter Wonderland

For 6 months I was waiting for Ollie to turn 6 months old. Now he is 7 months old and I can't figure out what I am waiting for now. Crawling, maybe?
Here is my little 7 month old, in all his glory!

He is a happy little guy. I love how he guides me through this parenthood thing. When it is time for change, he gives signs {sometimes not very subtle signs} that he is ready for a change. Lately, he wasn't eating his bottles first thing in the morning or right before bed. Then I read that a 7 month old only needs bottles with his breakfast, lunch, & dinner. We have made the switch & he is just fine & dandy. Go figure. Thanks for holding my hand bud. The other day I had the hair brained idea to start making his own baby food. {Upon realizing we would be spending $150 alone in baby food. Boo!} So we bought a baby bullet 
& I have been making pureed goodies since. Unfortunately, Ollie hasn't quite gotten used to his new fresh food. I think it sometimes has more of a tang or is even more sweet than the Gerber stuff. We'll figure it out bud. 
The other day I walked into his room & all I saw was this cute little face popped up looking at me.
His happiest time of day is the evening {go figure, it used to be his worst time of day}.
In other news, I woke up this morning & was surprised by seeing flurries in the backyard.  It has been Snowing for several hours now.

I let Cadbury out thinking he wouldn't like the snow & would do his business & quickly return indoors.  Wrong!

The family of bunnies that lives under our deck must have taken refuge from the storm because Cadbury was oober enthusiastic about sniffing around the deck for an hour & a half in the snow. {He usually sniffs around it all day every day, but not with half as much interest. I think the bunnies are usually scattered about during the daylight hours.} I made a mental note to be sure & catch Cadbury when he came back 

inside so I could bathe the Muddy Mutt
 when he came back inside. Well, he snuck past me & of course, I found him on our bed on my blanket {his favorite spot}.
It's all good, it only added a little bit of laundry to my 'To Do' list today. I won't be going anywhere anytime soon anyway. This Arizona girl will not be driving in the snow.
