Watch Me Grow…7 months!

4 months! 
7 months! :-)
Late on blogging is probably an understatement…

Let me catch you up to speed on what my sweet Josh is doing at 7 months!
1/2 birthday celebration at Panera
*At his 6 month visit: 16 pounds 15 ounces and 26 1/4 inches tall.
Sippy cup drinking! 
*Josh wears size 3 diapers
*He is in size 6 months clothes and moving into some 6-9 months things.
*He naps three times a day: 1 morning nap for 30-60 minutes, 1 afternoon nap for 2 hours, and one later afternoon nap for 45-60 minutes
*Josh has his last feeding at 8:00, and is usually out by 8:30. He sleeps from anywhere from 7-8 in the morning.
*Josh loves to eat. He has oatmeal with 1/2 of a stage 2 fruit in it in the morning, nurses at 11, eats a stage 2 veggie and 1/2 fruit at 2/230, nurses at 5, and an 8 ounce bottles with a generous amount of oatmeal in it at 8.
Belly sleeper
*Josh waves bye bye
*Josh sits up unassisted very well.
*Josh rolls fast and with lots of determination.
*He will get up on all fours and launch himself forward. He does this wiggle army crawl thing, but no "official" crawling.
*He only wants his boopie when he is going to sleep.
Big boy in a college dorm.
*He chews on his thumb periodically.
*He has two teeth on the bottom that have just barely broken through the gums…you can feel them, but cannot really see them yet.
*Josh is fascinated with jewelry if you are wearing any.
Big boy on a boat! 
*He puts EVERYTHING in his mouth!
*He loves his Kindermusik class.
*Josh loves watching Greg and Maria play. He really lights up watching Greg. He dislikes when Maria smothers him because all of her hair gets in his face.
They love each other. 
So big! And cute! 
*Josh really lets you know when he gets angry now when you take something of his away.
*He loves toys that make noise and jingle. He still likes his exersaucer and his new stand table.
*Josh can stand on his own holding onto the play table for an extended time by himself.
Taco Mac TVs!! 
*We have seen some stranger anxiety in the last few weeks when I am not near.
*Josh loves bath time with his brother.
Where did my baby go? 
*Josh likes to be cuddled.
*He prefers to sleep on his belly.
All boy! 
*He drinks water from a sippy cup really well.
*Josh just started to enjoy the little baby puff snacks.

My loves! 
Josh really has such a sweet disposition. He really is such an easy baby. He lights up any room and is always ready to greet you with a smile or giggle. He brings so much light into our lives and we certainly love him very much. He is loved on by his brother and sister all of the time. He goes with the flow, and his personality is just as sweet as can be.
Love me a sleeping baby! 
 He has been such a blessing to us, and we could not imagine life without out little love bug!
