Graham Robert: 7 months

Our sweet little Graham is growing up too fast! He likes being in the car more now and has learned to play with his carseat toys which is great. Graham is holding his own bottle!!! Hallelujah! Such a difference and a life-saver in being able to give him a bottle and then do things while he eats. I love having a baby but I definitely feel tied down holding them for 20-30 minutes every three hours to feed them. Once my babies start to become more independent my stress levels and anxiety related to motherhood goes down quite a bit.

Graham officially doesn't swaddle for naps or bedtime anymore which is nice because he isn't waking up due to breaking his swaddle. He is still not sleeping through the night completely, he wakes up around 5:30am and cries until I go in to give him his morning bottle at 6:00am. I seriously hope that we can get him eating solids so it can help him feel fuller longer and hopefully sleep the whole night! Graham is entranced with everything Hilton does and watches him like a hawk. It's clear he wants to be doing what Hilton is doing so I know they'll play well. I am very excited to see how they become friends. We love our little Graham-ster, Graham-man, and Baby Graham (as Hilton still calls him).

  • Weighs 20.5 lbs
  • Wearing size 12 month clothes
  • Wearing size 4 diapers
  • Takes about three 1.5 hour naps each day or two 2 hour naps
  • Eats about 6 oz. every 3 hours
  • Still hates solid foods - no matter what I try he gives me looks like I'm trying to poison him. Any suggestions??
  • His hair is getting longer and thicker, I love it
  • Loves to be held or in the jumper - still doesn't love tummy time but can now sit for short periods of time so we're working on getting better at that.
  • He can roll from back to front and front to back now so he doesn't get stuck on his belly in his crib anymore!
  • He is sitting up and loves to sit and play with toys on the floor.
  • Grabbing his toes whenever he's laying on his back and squawks and squeals when you talk to him
  • Has the biggest grins when I coo at him and responds to the sound of my voice but is definitely a daddy's boy
  • First ear, eye, and sinus infection this month :( so sad! Thank goodness for a nose frida!
