Your Seventh Month
Again I cannot believe another month has come and gone! You are already done with your month's worth of swim lessons and by the last class you were splashing and giggling and just being super happy. Definitely an improvement from the first class, you don't mind getting water in your ears and are okay being flipped from tummy to back and vice versa in the water.
You have decided you hate vegetables all of a sudden and so I've tried to introduce new fruits and foods including blueberries, plums, and peaches. You love all of the new foods I've tried with you so hopefully we'll ease you back into some vegetables that you'll eat. You're still eating about five ounces a bottle at this point. Still every two hours or sooner. Unfortunately you are still spitting up a lot so sometimes you have to eat sooner than every two hours.
We have recently moved you up to nine month clothing, we'll see how long you stay in it. You're growth has been consistent so we will see! You are still in size three diapers and I think that will be the case for a while! They are still a comfortable fit so until you're next growth spurt we will be good for a while.
You finally started sleeping through the night about a week ago! It was such a miracle. I woke up the first night you did it really confused as to why I hadn't woken up to feed you and rushed in to check on you (as quietly as possible) and you were still snoozing away. It's been so nice to have this phase continue and I hope we don't have any sleep regression anytime soon!
You are starting to get close to crawling I think, the baby gate is officially up either way. You can turn yourself around and scoot on your belly, and can get from sitting to your belly easily, and then to your back. You can't quite sit up on your own, but I think its just a matter of time. You love walking in your baby walker at Grandma and Grandpa's and you love playing in your jumper at home. You are so curious and inquisitive about everything. You love seeing and inspecting new items, which of course go straight into your mouth. We're working on it. I'm excited to start doing some play dates to get your socialized with other babies. You're such a sweet inquisitive baby I think they'll go well but we will see!
Daddy is loving your sweet giggles and squals! We've found all your ticklish spots and use them frequently.
Mommy is loving your sweet smile, it's looking like you might have dimples like her.
The puppies are loving when you don't like eating your solids, you take a mouthful and if you don't like it will spit it out over the side of the high chair. They're more than happy to help clean the floor.
We love you so much little man, I can't imagine life without you!
