Seven months

BL2Y8815I have a 7 month old!

Stats:  Asa got a virus last week so I know his weight this month.  He was 15lbs, 14oz.  He is still wearing mainly 3-6 month clothes and size 2 diapers.

Likes:  Asa loves food!  He wants to eat everything so we have to really watch him around food.  He has been know to shove it all in.  He hasn’t really hit the stranger stuff yet but he does prefer me to anyone else.


Dislikes:  He was not a fan of the pool the first time that he went.  However, it was still pretty cold.  The sitter tried it again last week and he was a fan.  There is really not much this boy doesn’t like.

Eating:  Same as last month….nursing every 3-4 hours during the day (a total of 5 times) and I’ve been giving him solids for breakfast and dinner.  I tried Baby-Led Weaning in the beginning but he was shoving everything in his mouth so we went to purees.  I’ve been making them myself, other than the prunes that I bought last week because he needed them.

Sleeping:  Still sleeping from 7-7:30pm to 6-6:30am and napping after being awake for about 2 hours.  Some days that’s 2 naps and some days it’s 3.  Now that the kids are home for the summer, he doesn’t nap as long.  It’s hard to sleep with all that racket!

Milestones: Asa’s two top teeth are right under his gums.  I expect them to poke through any day now.  He peed on the potty yesterday.  The Baby Whispered recommends putting them on the potty as soon as they are sitting up.  We just do it before bath or after eating.  It’s hit or miss at this point but it does work to introduce them to the potty so it’s not a scary thing.  I did it with the other two and they were potty trained shorty last turning 2.
