Joshua at 7 Months

Joshua turned 7 months on the 24th! I'm so proud of myself for getting this post up BEFORE he turns 8 months!

This little man is doing really well! He has been teething for what feels like forever. Forever. He got his first tooth this week, but that will technically go under his 8 month post. He is still drooling nonstop, so we certainly aren't done with it.

For the most part he's been an okay teether. He doesn't get too fussy, but he really prefers to be chewing on something. He's still pretty easy going-he does fuss if he gets really tired though.

We started solids this past month. He seems to be enjoying it. So far he's had cereal, pumpkin, peaches, prunes, green beans, carrots, and apple. I make all my own baby food, so I try to make what is easiest right now. With Paige, I had tons of time to be in the kitchen and make a lot of food, but these days it's hard to find the time.

He's sitting up so good now! I put a pillow behind him half the time, mostly as a just in case if Paige is around. He will reach forward for toys, but he hates to be on his tummy, so he isn't scooting or trying to crawl at all. He does roll all over the place though.

Now that he's sitting up, we are done with the baby tub. It's weird to be putting away some baby items already.

I'm not sure on the stats, but he seems bigger to me!

7 Months Stats:

Weight: 14 lbs??
Length: 25 inches??
Size Diaper: He's still comfortably wearing size Small cloth diapers, and Medium disposables at night
Size Clothes: 6 months!!! Finally!! He still wears some 3 month pants, but he is mostly in 6 months, which makes me SO happy!
Sleep: grrrr. I will say it has gotten better this past week, but overall before this week he has been waking up at about 5:45-6:15 every morning. We try to give him the paci-sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. He's in the middle of transitioning into the 4 hour schedule and back and forth with needing a cat nap. He usually will have a good morning nap and then the other 2 are short. But we go out in the mornings a lot, so on those days he just takes a long afternoon nap. 
Feedings: He nurses at about 6:30, 10:30, 3, and 7. Sometimes a 5th feeding if he doesn't nap well or needs it.  
Teeth: Not at 7 months (currently he has 1)

I can't get over how cute this little boy is! Love him!!

This past month Joshua cheered for his favorite team, the Packers!!! Sometimes we can watch the game online. It's pretty exciting when it happens. 

He loves his big sister Paige! If she's in the room, he is usually content to just watch her. I love both these kiddos so much! I know I'll turn around one day and have teenagers, but I am trying to soak up all the time I have with them. I love being their mama!
