Milam - 7 Months

March 22, 2017

You are the easiest on-the-go baby ever.  You have been since day one.  For awhile there you didn't like your car seat but you got over it and you've always been able to sleep anywhere although you sleep longer at home in your bed in the dark with a sound machine.  You also transfer pretty easily from your stroller or car seat to your crib.
Your hand eye coordination has exploded.  That happened about the week before you turned 6 months.  I can actually sit you in your high chair and you can pick up food bits.  You can hold your bottle.  You're a little manic about it (the opposite of your sister...she never had any interest #princess) so I rarely let you and your bottles are really big around.  If you had one that was smaller I think you would do better.  For now it is faster for me to feed you myself.

Said "Momma" on 3.7.17 and started pulling to stand up on 3.7.17 (yes, on the same day).  He's been getting really close to doing both for awhile but I think those two dates mark his official "firsts". He likes to push up to stand more than pull up.
Your crawling has literally taken off.  You get faster and faster everyday.  It is so funny to see you in places where I didn't leave you.

You reached TO ME on 3.15.17 (you've only reached for Georgia before) and waved for the first time to Uncle Austin (3.15.17) You crawl around and grab my pants and try to get me to hold you.

On 3.14.17 you started doing this standing thing where you try to raise up from squatting without holding onto anything.  I've never seen another kid do what you're trying to do. You sit on one foot and have the other foot flat on the ground.  I need to get a picture of you doing it.
You are sleeping from about 7:30 - 7:30.  When DLS came you stopped doing your early morning wake thing where you talk and then fall back asleep.  You've done it once since then.  You take two 1.5 hour naps.  When you wake up in the AM you stay up about 2 hours and then stay up 3 hours before your second nap.

You still LOVE your sister so SO much!  You love to crawl in the grass and eat dirt.  You want to be outside playing or in your stroller going on walks.  You love playing with cars.  You are such a sweet baby boy.
This will be the last time I try and take his picture when Jonathan isn't home.  Goodness.  After this he threw up leaves and grass.  FUN. 

You are in 9-12 clothes and size 3 diapers and a 3 shoe.  I don't have your length or weight right now.

You got your first tooth on 3.20.17 - The teeniest tiniest little corner of a tooth.  I felt and saw it once.  Now, I can feel it but you won't let me get another peek.  If I'm looking at you it is the bottom left.  The last hour before your naps/bed can be pretty rough.  You pull your ear (and you have the scabs to show for it) and grab at the back of your head and hair.  (Your sister did the same thing while teething)  You just fuss and fuss.  I use Tylenol, teething tablets, and Orajel and you're still napping and sleeping at night but everything can be amplified while you're awake.  You're good at playing by yourself until you see me actually leave.  Then you get upset but you usually get over it pretty quickly.

Love the last picture!! My little guy is the same way, I can't take his monthly pictures by myself anymore. I need someone to place him on the ground while I'm standing above him ready to take the picture. He doesn't like laying on his back for very long!
