at seven months, baby cedar is getting more fun by the day. we keep saying to ourselves, "he's so much more like a real boy now". it was a busy month for cedar - he hung out with two sets of uncles & aunties & slept in eight different beds (including a train sleeper car!) as he traveled around to laos, thailand & siem reap (twice!). he also rode on six buses, five airplanes & sailed on three different boats (one on the mekong, one on a laotian resivour, & one in the gulf of thailand)
but more on the adventures later....
this month cedar's been experimenting with making noises & funny faces, eating real food, & spending most of his time practicing his new sitting, standing & scootching skills, being tossed around by his dad & grinning at ming kohm.
he debuted an utterly fabulous old-man-grin which he flashed like crazy for two weeks & then promptly stopped all together. it was great while it lasted.

he still hates the thought of going to sleep by himself in his own bed & as you might imagine, two weeks of backpacking around se asia with his parents & aunts & uncles didn't help much. but now that we are home, our sleep training resolve has been strengthened & we'll keep working on that one. here's to hoping that the next update will tell a tale of a happily-sleeping-through-the-night-baby & his well rested parents!
