Month seven was a fun one as they all have been. The highlights were introducing more foods, better sleeping (yahoo!) and of course your first Halloween. Thirty days goes by so quickly when you and your sister keep us on our toes constantly :)
I decided this month to change things up a little bit with my monthly posts in hopes of being a little more punctual. This seems to be an easier and quicker method for me so I'm giving it a try!
Weight/height: 17 pounds (30th percentile) and 28 inches (90th percentile) at your six month checkup. You are SO long, your feet are hanging out of your car seat and you grow out of your footed sleepers overnight. You are in a hurry to catch your sister in both categories.
Hair: It is long, blonde and straight with just a little bit of a wave to it. It lays so
pretty handsomely and you are already rocking some 'bama bangs.
Eyes: still blue but getting darker. I feel like they will be brown by your first birthday.
Clothes: You almost skipped the 6 month clothing and went straight to 9 month. During the day when you are home or with one of your grandma's you are in onesie outfits. You wear longalls and shortalls/bubbles with knee socks now that it is turning cold when we go out. My favorite brands for you are Bailey Boys, TBBC and smocked auctions.
Diapers: size 3
Sleeping: If we can feed you cereal before bed you will sleep through the night! Bedtime for you and Georgia is 8:30-9 and you sleep until 7. You take 2-3 naps through the day that vary in length. Your sleeping very much revolves around how fully your tummy is :) I can respect that.
Likes: Food-carrots, sweet potatoes, bananas, pears, apples, mango, whole grain cereal, ice cream ;). You like to play with your sister and it doesn't matter what it is as long as she acknowledges you. You LOVE your puppy dog wubbanub. You like your car seat and riding places. You love bath time with sister in the big tub!
Dislikes: You fight sleep sometimes. You don't care for green beans or peas. You cannot stand for us to leave you alone in a room. It hurts your feelings so bad!
Eating: You still consume a mixture of breastmilk (probably 75% of your milk) and formula and you eat baby food 2-3 times per day. You eat baby food really well and love meal times. We will keep introducing new foods and gradually introduce food from the table. I am in no hurry since you are eating baby food so well.
Milestones: Sleeping through the night again, your first Halloween, saying "da-da" all. day. long :) and getting on all fours. No crawling yet but it won't be long.
Baby items we can't live without: WUBBANUB. That dog will be your best friend for life. Sleep sacks, baby food dispenser spoon and your treehouse toy.
Happy 7th month to our perfect son! We love you to the moon and back.
