I say it every month but I really cannot believe how fast this little boy is growing. Seven months??? Wow! He is still a wonderful baby. I am just waiting for that statement to bite me in the butt but so far so good. He is so calm and just goes with the flow at all times. I think he may cry once a week. Seriously.
Over the past month we have had quite a few milestones. He got his first hit of pink eye, 103 fever and double ruptured eardrums (twice!!) Of course he took it all like a champ. He started sitting up all on his own. So much so that I don't freak out when I sit him down. Now sometimes he gets really excited and falls over but nothing that hurts him. He has also started to try crawling. He does the army crawl and can move really fast.. too fast!! Then he will stop and put his butt in the air. He hasn't quite mastered the combo of the two.
He is weighing in at 14lbs, 4 oz and is 25 1/2 long. He is in the 10th percentile for his weight but the doc says that is ok as he is trending right alone the growth curve. Chaz was the same way so I am ok with it.
He has mastered all mushy food and is eager to start using a spoon. He tries all the time! He has started eating puffs. Which is great because he finally has something to snack on. We started introducing formula into his diet. I figure I will start trying to wean him sometime in the next few months so I may as well get him to like something other than breast milk. With this last introduction he has developed a yucky rash. It is on his belly, back and the "knee pits" (as I coined them years ago.) We are going to see if they start to fade, otherwise we are off to the doc. We shall see!
I noticed my last few "month" posts I totally forgot to put in the monkey. Well here he is, getting man handled by the boy. This monkey doesn't stand a chance.
This was just as hard as you can imagine. To get a picture of a seven month old's teeth is virtually impossible. So this is what you get! Those two little white dots at the bottom of his tongue. Yep, that is them!
but somewhere in the million tries, I got this picture that shows just how beautiful his eyes are. Amazing!!
Speaking of wiggly, it is becoming increasingly hard to get a picture of this boy. He wants to move!
