Seven Months

Well, Aedan is officially not a newborn anymore. He is over half a year old! When did that happen?!?!

Aedan, here is what you have been up to this month:

  • You had your first sick baby doctor appointment last week (poor baby had a virus) and you weighed in at 20 lbs! I’m not sure how many inches long you are, but you seem much taller lately.
  • You wear mostly size 9m clothes, but I just bought you some t-shirts and pants in size 12m so they would last awhile and you have no problem fitting into them now.
  • You can sit up all by yourself (and love it!). You can also roll both ways now, although you do most of your rolling in your crib. When you are playing on the floor you usually stay on either your back or belly.
  • You can move from sitting to your belly and then you kick your legs really hard. You want to crawl but you just haven’t figured it out quite yet. I have a feeling we are close to having to chase you around though!
  • You still take 3 naps a day (you like your sleep just like your Daddy!). You go to sleep around 8pm and wake up around 7:30am. This last week you were sick and woke up during the night a couple of nights in a row. It made Mommy realize that she does not miss those newborn days of waking up at night!
  • You have two teeth! I’m pretty sure you are working on a third because you have been drooling like crazy lately.
  • You drink 4 bottles a day (usually about 6 oz) and you have solids at breakfast and dinner and sometimes lunch. You pretty much like everything although today you did not want your nectarines.
  • You love to be outside and now that you can sit up, going on family picnics is great!
  • You also love to jump in your jumper (or any jumper for that matter). You have been known to get so excited when we hang the jumper up in the doorway that you fall backward and sometimes hit your head.
  • You “talk” all the time. You make lots of sounds but right now your favorite seems to be “dada”. Still no “mama” but it’s okay, I know you will say it eventually. :)
  • You are such a happy baby most of the time, but when you get mad or scared (usually because of a loud noise) you have no problem turning on the water works and screaming until someone comforts you.
  • We have been doing some independent play time in your crib for 15 minutes every morning. You get so excited when I sit you down in your crib and start giving you toys. You usually do great for the whole 15 minutes (although on the rare occasion that you get mad during you IP time, Daddy usually comes to your rescue).

Aedan, you are so loved and we can’t get enough of you. Last month I said it was my favorite to date, but I have to say this month has gotten even better. You are just so fun these days! We love you!!
