We traveled with 27 of our buds to the Bahamas a couple of weeks ago ... and it was epic! Our boys had been counting down since we booked the trip in February and were so excited to get to wake up in the dark to go to the airport in our matching neon green shirts. 

We arrived on Saturday with plenty of time to throw on bathing suits and hit the pool + beach. We swam until we dropped (2 boys actually fell asleep before dinner) and snuggled in to rest up. 


Highlights from our travel day: 

being on a flight with Honey + Andy's crew (who were traveling for a mission trip)
color coded t-shirts (by family)
Oscar's first flight(s)
new stamps in passports

you've snuck past almost as quickly as this entire year has. we're winding down your last few days, slipping away to dip our toes in the caribbean, hoping to be sun kissed and well worn when we return.  we've watched storms roll in, water balloons squish and pop, swam where the swimming was good, weekended with friends and made plans for the rest of the year. you've tasted like fresh blueberries, coke (zero) and bourbon and sonic happy hour. i've questioned things and tried to understand. i've snuggled my babies a little longer, thankful that they're mine and that we're here, not there...

month seven | oscar fox

month seven

Sweetest dude. You're seven whole months old now and it seems like you've been with us for always. Seamless.  These past seven months have passed in a blink, as they seem to do with each and every one of you. But I'm learning to savor all of it (the middle of the night feedings, the fussy teething days, the milestones...) while living in it. Stamping it on my heart and trusting my soul to remember (as a dear friend walking in motherhood with me has said in comfort to my fear of forgetting).

You bounce in the jumper, sit on my hip, ride in the carrier on daddy, or scoot around happily as can be. You're a champ when it comes to sleep -- you like to lie in the crib with sleepy fox and chatter to yourself until you fall asleep (bless you child). You love food - all of it - and have weened to nursing about 3x/day + 1-2/night. So far you've sprouted one bottom tooth. And, your most exciting trick is pulling to stand and cruising! Yay! (Much earlier than any of the brothers...) I've been trying to get you to say "mama" for weeks now, but like Ez at this age, you just look at me and grin. I'll take it.

Oscar,  I love you. We've got super fun summer ahead! This coming weekend you'll fly your first flight(s) and get your first stamp in your passport. Cheers to adventures - the world is yours little boy. Keep growing big and strong.
