7 Months

Roly Poly,

Your 7-month pics are by far the best yet!! You were a good little show pony (that's what we call you when we're out and you smile appropriately at people who think you're adorable) for sure!

That face!!

So big!!!
The beginning of your 7th month was pretty intense--your first cold! You were thrown for quite a loop. It was the night before your Daddy got home so I spent almost the entire night up with you. Your nose was so stuffy and you were just miserable. We spent all night like this, but without the peaceful sleeping:

You are the clear favorite at daycare. It's nice to know how much Michelle loves you too! You're a very cheerful, funny little thing.

Who wouldn't love that sweet little face!!
You sit up like crazy now. You can bend over and sit yourself back up. I think you like being such a big boy and sitting up and seeing the world. But it definitely means your pumpkin car seat has got to go soon.

Sitting up and loving your new big boy high chair! 
You've finally had good weeks with both grandmas watching you! You were happy and fun and took two naps a day for both of them. So that's a big relief for me! And it's nice to know you're getting more comfortable with your routine. This summer has been pretty crazy for you bouncing around from place to place almost every day to be watched by different people in different places. You've been very flexible!

Cheerful little boy!
Pretty soon after you got over your first cold you ended up with a second one, and this time a little cough! It was horrible to listen to you coughing but it didn't seem to bother you as much as being stuffy. So of course your sleep was a little strange again but you're back on track again now.

You are a rolling machine now. Front to back and back to front. I think you feel safe in your crib and are always on the move in there. There's one blind spot with the monitor at the bottom of your crib and fairly often when you're cruising around in there it looks like you've completely disappeared. A little disconcerting the first time that happened, to say the least.

You also had a big day recently--going in the big shopping cart for the first time and in the big baby swing in the backyard.

In addition to having colds and being a little needier you took those two opportunities to eat around the clock. You have upped your (my) milk supply so much in the past 4 weeks!! I'm pumping an extra 4 ounces during the day for you and you're up to drinking two 8 oz bottles with your sitters. Which means you're probably drinking an extra 6-8 ounces total every 24 hours. So crazy. I guess being a bit more mobile (even though you're not crawling yet!) burns a lot more calories.

Look at this 4-week difference. You have thinned out so much. I can't even imagine how skinny you'll get when you actually start crawling and walking.

You're a real little boy!!!

  1. Love the recaps! I think I did half a book for you and didn't even do one for Josh :-/ Technology with instant pics has certainly made it easier to capture the moments.


I LOVE reading your comments and feedback! Please take a quick moment to share your thoughts.
