7 Months

At seven months Eli is:
• so very very close to crawling and is constantly trying to move
• become a really big eater and starting to love solids
• this morning he had pears for the first time and he loved them
• loves to be tossed up and down and or jump
• is sleeping anywhere between 11-13 hours at night with two 1.5-2 hour naps during the day
• is fairly serious most of the time
• but once you convince him to smile, he is all grins for you
• will let anyone hold him
• loves to bang on things with his hands - the piano, books, the table, my arm.
• just learned to wave
• can almost go from on his tummy to sitting
• rarely wakes up crying but is almost always jibber-jabbering and talking
• thinks that when Alden and Lucy jump around in front of him it is so stinking funny
• rarely wants to look at the person who is holding him but wants to look around
• cuddles only when he is tired
• loves to be held
• rubs his eyes and face when he is tired
• loves looking in the mirror
• gets really excited when you read him books
• can drink water out of a cup with help (and a few spills)
• sits easily but still randomly falls over and never minds it
• wears 6-9 month clothes and some 9-12
• puts everything in his hands into his mouth
• is already showing a preference for the cars Alden always brings him
• is the squirmiest breast feeder. He is kicking his feet the whole time and grabbing at my shirt
• is insanely ticklish

We just love this little boy.

I'll answer all the questions about the car seat ticket thing tomorrow!

I love these posts about them when they turn a new age. Such a great idea for their baby books or whatever. He is adorable.
