Way to go Annette Boatright for finding this onesie for our little Wilkie. :)
Simon, you are 7 months old! The last two months have been filled with new and exciting things in your world. You have two teeth popping through, but they are taking their sweet time. Which makes you very sad at times! Your budding sense of humor is a riot. I think you’re like Daddy…it is hard to make you laugh, you don’t think just anything is funny. But when you do laugh it is our favorite thing! The whole family gathers around to watch. :) However, you think Elliott is absolutely hilarious. You always laugh for him!
You recognize your name and your brothers’ names. When we call Trevor or Elliott you look for them, and you have a huge beaming smile when they enter the room! This warms my heart. I love that the three of you love each other so much already.
You surprised us by crawling way earlier than we thought you would! All of a sudden one night you were determined to get the iPhone and pulled yourself along on the floor to get to it! Just like a little sea lion. :) Now you’re all over the place. My favorite is when I’m taking a shower and come out to find you in our closet. Hahaha! Boy do you love cords and electronics though! You can always manage to find those in the room. You’re giving me a run for my money at childproofing since I haven’t done it in 4 years!
You like all kinds of foods and you’re easily soothed when fussy if I just put a bunch of cheerios or fruit puffs in front of you. Watching you use your chubby little fingers to grasp each tiny one and find its way into your mouth (or at least in the vicinity of your mouth) is amazing. I could spend an hour just watching you do that! :)
My favorite thing is your joy is still very much alive. Even when you’re crying in your crib, you manage a huge smile behind the tears when I come in to get you. Your joy is contagious and I pray often that no one ever steals your joy from you.
I love you Peanut Wilkie Zielke, Eyeball Smart, Simon Isaiah! You are a joy and a blessing!
