Seven Months

Colton - you are SEVEN months old!!!!

How in the world did that happen???

What have you been up to this month???

You are wearing mostly 6-9 month clothes. You are now wearing size 3 diapers.

You are a great sleeper! You sleep through the night and go to bed around 7pm and wake between 7:30-8am. You take a morning nap anywhere between 30-60 minutes. You take a great afternoon nap around 3 hours. I am SO happy to have two good sleepers!

You LOVE your wubby. It always calms and soothes you. You now have a monkey and elephant wubby. We always have one on hand.

You are a great eater. You are working your way through stage one foods. You have had peas, green beans, carrots, applesauce, pears, sweet potatoes, and bananas. I think your favorite so far are carrots and bananas. You eat twice a day - in the morning and at night. I'm thinking we will start solids at lunch soon.

You LOVE your jumperoo! You jump so hard and just laugh the whole time.

You are doing so well in the nursery. You will usually take a nap and like to snuggle with the childcare care workers. I'm so happy you love the nursery workers and they love to shower you with love. They always brag about how good you are.

You roll from your belly to back all the time but haven't mastered rolling from back to belly yet. You love to stand up while holding on to my hands. You are sitting up more every day. You do great sitting up supported but we are working on you sitting unassisted.

You don't have any teeth yet and I don't think you have any signs of teething. Ryan had at least two teeth by this age. It's fun to see your differences.

Today I was playing with you on the floor and Ryan came over to lay down beside you. You looked over at him and just smiled so big. He started playing peek a boo with you and you just smiled and laughed so big. I love that you think your big brother is pretty amazing. You love to watch whatever he is doing. You adore him. Ryan loves to call you "Tolton Bear".

You are so easy going and so easy to take places. You do love attention too. You are so sweet and smiley all the time.

Before you were born I couldn't imagine loving someone as much as I love Ryan. When you were born God totally made room in my heart to love you just as much as your brother Ryan. You are such a precious and special gift from God! I cannot imagine our life without you. We love you so much!
