Seven Months!

The Kid turned seven months old a few days ago!



At seven months old, The Kid:
  • Still wears size 1 diapers (as he has for the last 4.5 months)
  • Is finally starting to fill out size 0-3 month clothing (although pants are still big around his waist)
  • Sleeps in his own crib for 9-11 hours every night (and I still wake him every morning)
  • Weighs about 11 pounds (in the 3rd percentile for height and weight)
  • Has giggled twice
  • Is in the 38th percentile for milestones reached
  • Nurses for 15-30 minutes WITHOUT a nursing shield (quite the accomplishment) and then eats about 3 ounces from the bottle
  • LOVES his play gym
  • Is easily quieted by having a toy dangled in his face
  • Found his toes...and likes 'em!

He didn't want to have his picture taken this month. This is his sad face:

The elusive giggle: Caught for just a split second in the very middle of this short clip. He only giggles if you giggle first, and he can tell if you fake it. We've tried. It doesn't work.

P.S.--Can you believe that I've been pumping for seven months? And I still pump 4-5 times a day. I am a trooper. I deserve a prize.

Oh he gets cuter and cuter by the day! I bet he'll have a great giggle down by the time I come to visit. And yes, you seriously do deserve a HUGE reward for pumping for 7 months!!!
