Tomorrow will be 7 months for our big boy and since I won't be around a computer to write his post, I thought I'd go ahead and do it now. At 7 months Will weighs 21 pounds and is 29 inches long. Both were even numbers when we took them today for his baby book so that made it easy! I thought his weight would be down this time because he looks a little thinner to me but maybe it's just because he's gotten longer.
He has two teeth coming in slowly but now that they've both fully broken through he doesn't seem to be bothered by them. He's eating three meals a day and working on picking up cheerios and a sippy cup for snacks. He can get the cheerios in his hand but has a hard time getting them in his mouth without help. He handles the sippy cup pretty well but he won't lift it up for the water to get to him.
He talks a lot now and says dada more than anything. He's funny because if it's quiet he'll talk in a quiet almost whisper and if we aren't paying attention to him he'll yell. He likes to be tickled and play peekaboo but he can also keep himself entertained in the floor for quite awhile. He rolls everywhere and can roll all the way across the room now if he's trying to get somewhere. He moves all the time so it's hard to even change his diaper anymore, he just wiggles all over the place!
Sleep is not so great these days. He got thrown off with the teeth and he's starting to get back on schedule. He still goes to bed around 8 every night but wake up times vary from 4:30-around 6ish. He can roll around in the bed now so he wakes himself up because he'll get stuck in a corner or knock his head on the sides. Last night he started to fuss and Rob went to check on him and he thought it was playtime. He was all smiles and very hard to get back to sleep.
He was playing this morning on our bed and I just loved his little overalls. He looks so old to me and it definitely doesn't seem like it's been 7 months!
I was laughing the other night because he was sitting on the couch by himself like a grown up but he's so little that you could only see his eyes over the side of the couch. Note that they are still blue, so I'm thinking the eye color is here to stay!
But then Rob did a full shot and his little gut just cracked us up! I love the extra roll behind his knee!
We need to give up the swing for numerous reasons. He's too long, he's too big, and now this. He's trying to get out/see something over the side and he makes the whole thing swing a little sideways. Or sometimes he just sits up with his back straight and looks around while he's swinging. He falls asleep for naps in the swing better than anywhere but we are going to have to come up with a new plan!
