Welcome to what is quite possibly the latest post EVER!
Eli was seven months old on February 26th, but my laptop is on the fritz so I haven't been able to upload my pics. I kept waiting so that I could put a picture with this post, but if I keep waiting we'll just pass on by month #8 which is this coming Monday! Please imagine an adorable picture of a chubby little baby wearing a onesie with a number 7 on it and I will add it to this post as soon as I get my laptop up and running again.
Eli, you are SEVEN months old!
You must be well over 20 pounds by now. You are still in size 4 diapers and you can now wear some 12-18 month clothes!
You bucket roll all over the living room, rock back and forth on your knees and sit for short periods of time. You still haven't learned that if you throw yourself backwards when sitting you'll smash your little head off the floor so we need to pile up some pillows and blankets around you! You still love your crab and snail, but you have absolutely loved your Leap Frog Learn and Groove Musical Table this month. We still have the legs off, but I have a feeling in no time the legs will be back on and you will be pulling up to stand on it.
You are still sleeping horrible and up at least once or twice every night. Those nasty teeth are well on their way and I can now see little white nubs under your gums so they should pop through anytime now! You haven't been nursing good either because of the pain so it has been hard on both of us!
You have become a champ at eating solids and you are up to 2 meals a day. I usually will mix a jar of veggies with rice cereal or a jar of fruit with oatmeal and you haven't refused anything yet! Your favorite fruit is banans and your favortie veggie is sweet potatoes. You are also a fan of blueberry yogurt which we just started this month. We started giving you cheerios, but we are still having to break them in half so you don't choke!
I'm hoping in the next month to start you on the tilty cup and try and get you to drink some water from a cup. We had a really hard time with your brother and sister and they went right from a bottle to a straw so I am hoping to get you on a cup sooner rather than later so we don't have any trouble transitioning you.
Your next appointment is your 9 month appointment at the end of next month so we'll have some updated stats for you then!
Hopefully your 8th month will bring some relief (TEETH!) and some better sleeping patterns because Mama is T-I-R-E-D!
