Happy 7 Months!


  • Weighs 18 lbs. and I'm not sure how long he is but at 6 months he was 26 inches.
  • Wears size 3 diapers
  • Wears 6-9 month clothes... his growing has finally slowed down a bit. He's not growing quite as rapidly as the first 5 months and his Dr. said he's just falling into where his natural body type is going to be on the curve, so to speak. He's really right about average now. 
  • Never did extend his bedtime. Bedtime is still between 6:30-7:00 (no complaining from us though!) His schedule is wake up between 6:30-7 am. Solid feeding for breakfast then bottle and nap at 9:00. This nap is generally 1-1.5 hours. Another bottle and nap at 12:00 and at 3:00, but those are just 30 minute naps. I think if/when he extends his afternoon nap like his morning nap then he'll just need the 2 naps. But for now it is still 3. Solid feeding of dinner at 5:00, bath at 6:00, and bed 6:30-7:00. He still has 1 night feeding at about 2:00 am. Every once in awhile he seems like he's getting ready to drop the night feeding, but then I guess he wises up ;) Of course, this is his usual schedule but every once in awhile, sometimes for unknown reasons he'll have off wake-up times late at night or early in the morning... but those have just proved to be a "phase" like everything else, and then he falls back into his norm.
  • Has his 2 bottom teeth.
  • Loves to EAT! He has a solid feeding for breakfast and dinner. He is currently eating: Bananas, Apples, Pears, Avacado, Plum, Oatmeal, Carrots, Peas, Green Beans, and Squash. He is NOT a picky eater. He loves all of it. I'm hoping it stays this way. I'm always excited to try a new food with him and see how he'll "react," but he never has a reaction... he just eats it. LOL
  • Raises his arms up when he wants picked up.
  • Moved from his infant car seat to the convertible car seat. His infant seat was good until 25 lbs. but he just didn't seem comfortable anymore and was throwing more than usual fits every time we got in the car. 
  • Rubs his eyes when he is tired (always right on time for nap), but it is so stinkin' cute how he balls up his hand into a fist and rubs his eyes 
  • Sticks his tongue out a lot, especially when he is really concentrating 

  • Does this little bouncing movement when he hears music, so cute!
  • Is pulling up to a stand

I just barely caught it on video the other day...

  • And of course, the biggest new development is crawling! I have to say that I was not expecting to have a crawler at 6 months old. And now he is not only crawling but "exploring" the entire house. 
Here he is digging out my wallet and other papers from the diaper bag
And playing in a box of Tupperware (he'll play with this for an hour)
Checking out the new outlet covers, haha
Chewing on our dresser handles =)
He has figured out that he can play with the doors and they open and close. He attempts to get into the cat litter, food, and water but thankfully that's all behind closed doors in the laundry room. He pulls books off the shelves, chases the cats... needless to say, we have to keep our eyes on him at all times, or at least TRY =)! 
  • And he has the sweetest laugh that brings us more joy than we could have ever imagined!

The face that melts my heart...
