My handsome little boy is 7 months old!We are officially on the upswing to one year and I can't believe how fast it has gone. Except with my being home, I also feel like time is moving at a much slower pace and that is ok too!
Measurements: Two weeks ago Beckham weighed 18 pounds 6 ounces. I am pretty sure he has gained several more ounces so he is probably somewhere between 18 and a half and 19 pounds. His 6-9 month clothes still fit good but most of his fleece sleepers are starting to get tight in the booty! It can be really hard to button or zip right around his diaper especially in the middle of the night in the dark. This little boy has a serious booty!
Here is how tall he is...hehehe.
Milestones: Not much has changed in a while. He loves to sit! If you lay him down he is perfectly content to just stay there; forget about rolling over either way unless there is something really worth trying to get. And if he doesn't get it in one or two tries, he says 'nope!' He has started to lean over when sitting, so I am hoping that is a movement towards crawling! I know I'm asking for trouble, but I'm excited for him to start crawling!
It has taken every bit of a month for him to start getting into eating solid foods but he is finally there! He gets excited for most foods and anytime you're eating, he thinks he's entitled to a nibble! He really seems to enjoy pretty much everything I have given him. Parker loves to help try and feed him too. Although it can be hard because he loves to grab the spoon right out of your hand!
He also loves to dance while he's sitting:
Schedule: He still has a predictable routine and it hasn't changed much since 3 months old. Most of the time he still likes to take 4 naps but he is starting to take longer naps FINALLY! Hallelujah! I thought I was destined to have 2 children who only like 30 minute naps. And seriously, what can you get done in 30 minutes? That's right, nothing. But finally Beckham is napping 45 minutes to sometimes an hour or hour and a half. He has even had several 2 hour naps! So some days he naps 3 times. Now that I feed him solid foods he doesn't always get so sleepy or cranky in the evenings though he has been known to have evening grouchiness.
I am still waiting ever so patiently for him to sleep mostly through the night. I'm not even asking for all night - just for him to wake just once. But alas, he still wakes around 10pm, 1 or 2am, and 4 or 5am. Someday. Until then, I'll be glad I am not working!
Such a cute and happy boy!
