7 months old!

Friday, Isaiah turned seven months old! He's changed so much in the past month, growing and sitting, and moving! We'll blink and we'll be celebrating his first birthday. Hard to believe.

At seven months old, Isaiah, you:

-weigh about 16 pounds I think

-not sure how long you are as you won't go for another check-up until 9 months

-LOVE to eat! You are nursing on a really good schedule now for the most part and at least Monday through Friday. Carter being in school has really forced us all to be on a routine. You nurse around 7-10:30-1:30-4:00-7:30 (give or take a half hour)

-get baby food two to three times a day. So far, you've had banana, avocado, peaches, pears, apples, squash, sweet potatoes, green beans, mixed veggies of corn, green beans, and carrots (once), brown rice, oatmeal. You LOVE the baby food and so far, you've only had two non homemade jars (except the cereal which I am not making at home!)

-still wake up a few times a night but at least once or twice a week, you have a seven hour stretch of sleep and it makes mommy feel like a new person

-are sitting up by yourself but I'm always close by in case you topple over!

-are spinning around all over the floor on your tummy but not crawling just yet

-wear a size 3 diaper when you're in disposables which is about half of the time these days

-wear six to nine months clothes but are almost too long for those already

-wear a size two shoe but haven't worn shoes all summer!

-are still THE most laid back and generally happiest baby I've ever had (shhhhh! Don't tell your older brother and sister I said that!) You really only fus when you're hungry and tired. I'd say you were the perfect baby except for the whole night time waking up a gazillion times thing :)

-we love you more and more with each passing month. We can't wait to see what a big boy you become in the next few years. We pray God blesses you with health and brains and daddy's good looks :) We love you baby boy!!

Don't you just love making his food! I always felt like supermom when I made SB's, but it really wasn't hard at all. Happy 7 months, Isaiah!
