Taegan is growing up!

Taegan is getting so big. I can't believe he is 7 1/2 months old now. Up until Christmas, we could never get him to sit up on his own for very long. He would start to sit up and then seconds later he would fall over. Well, on Christmas morning we sat him down in front of his Santa gift and from that point on, he has been sitting up. I personally think it's because his sisters wouldn't quit playing with his present, but whatever it takes!! Here he is, trying to stay up and looking a little concerned.

A few days earlier my dad was feeding him and he decided to hold his own bottle. He hadn't ever done this before, but has done it ever since. I'm not sure what brought it on, maybe he didn't like how we were doing it!!

And finally tonight... Don had just finished feeding him and was letting him drink (otherwise known as, let the water pour into his mouth) some water from his sippie cup. Taegan took the cup and starts holding it (as best he can) and puts it up to his mouth. Here is a picture of him holding the cup and then another picture of him looking at Mommy like... what are you doing?!

I know as his mom I should be so happy he is learning all these new things, but he is my last baby and it makes me kind of sad. I'm trying to enjoy every new stage and not live in the past or try and make him grow up too fast either!! Here is one more picture of Taegan on Christmas day that I love. He was so excited to tear into his present and isn't he the most adorable baby boy you ever did see (even if I do say so myself!!!).
