Seven Months

This past Tuesday, Paxton was 7 months old! What a joy for us to be his parents! We’re enjoying him more and more with each passing day as his personality develops!

This month’s milestones:

  • Crawling backwards! Yes, he has the crawling motions down but he just hasn’t figured out how to go forward. It really is quite humorous to watch!
  • Sitting up on his own. He can go from lying down to sitting up! It’s amazing to watch!

  • Waving! He waves now! It’s so adorable. We say hi to him and he’ll wave!!
  • Pulling up! He pulled up on the coffee table last week! I didn’t witness it but his daddy did!

  • He’s still jabbering and jabbering! His words are “da da” “hi” and “ma ma”!
  • He loves playing! He enjoys playing with his Little People Farm, his Rock-a-Stack and books!

  • Eating a lot! So far he’s had rice cereal, apples, carrots, bananas, pears, sweet potatoes and green beans.
  • Still drooling like crazy but he has no teeth (and I’m honestly okay with that)!

  • He rarely naps! He goes strong all day long most days which makes for some long days for his mama! However, I really can’t complain since he still sleeps all night!
  • His Bum Genius diapers are still on the second setting and he’s wearing size 4 disposables since we ran out of 3s!

  • His clothing size…not sure! He is wearing anywhere from 6-12 month items these days! It just depends on the item.
  • He’s not sucking his thumb much at all these days. He is sucking his bottom lip again though.

  • He weighed a little over 18 pounds 3 weeks ago. I’m guessing he weighs 19 pounds or more now! He’s a heavy boy but I’m getting stronger! It’s funny, I can hold him longer now than I could when he was 2 or 3 weeks old!
  • We trimmed the hair around his ears 2 weeks ago. It was getting long and shabby!

  • He absolutely loves his bath! He splashes and haves a great time in his bath!
  • We took out the newborn head support out of his car seat and adjusted the car seat straps.

  • We went to the library for the first time this week and Paxton got his first library books…we chose a few Dr. Seuss books and Skippyjon Jones!
  • He loves people. He doesn’t care who he’s with, he just wants to be with people!
