The one where Perry turned 7 months old

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

You turned 7 months old on Saturday. Time is flying by. I remember when you were just a few weeks old and I was still on maternity leave...weeks seemed to drag by and I remember trying to come up with reasons to leave the house (I really don't sit at home well). Now-a-days the weeks are a blur of lightning speed it seems. We are trying to savor every day with you because you are changing and growing so quickly.

Here are a few things you have been up to this month:

  • You are crawling. Everywhere. And getting into everything.
  • You can pull up onto your knees really easily. I have seen you get on up onto your feet once. No real "cruising" yet...but it is coming.
  • We are working on baby proofing the house. Outlets are covered and we are about to "proof" the cabinets and stairs.
  • You have been well this month. No reasons to see the pediatrician. You have really been a healthy baby (sans one bout of the stomach bug and the sensitive skin).
  • You continue to be a great sleeper. You get your "night night bottle" at 8 pm and then it is off to bed. Typically we don't hear from you again until 6:30-7 the next morning.
  • You are really starting to interact with other babies and kids.
  • You still smile all the time. Your two most striking features (that get noticed by strangers every day) are your red hair and your smile. I am asked "is he this happy all the time" all the time.
  • You love strolls...just not in the middle of the day...because it was July in Alabama.
  • You have gotten to go to the pool several times this month. You really like your baby float.
  • You traveled to Mississippi, Birmingham, and Georgia this month.
  • You are an awesome eater. I have not found anything recently you don't like. We need to reintroduce those dreaded green beans again. You generally have some oatmeal and fruit in the morning and some veggies or fruit at lunch and dinner. Your favorite snack are green veggie "puffs." You are awesome at picking up food with your fingers.
  • You are such a joy to watch and be around. We love love love you!

...and off we go...sitting still is just too much to ask these days : )

...not sure what to think of the grass

...actually it is pretty fun to crawl around in.

Happy 7 months sweet boy!
