Seven Months

Seven Month Collage

What are you up too at Seven Months Wyatt? 

–  You have a new favorite thing, your safe baby feeder!! You have eaten bananas, watermelon, strawberries, and even a puff/cookie!!  You get so excited when you see the feeder on the high chair tray!  You smile real big and immediately put the food in your mouth.  You devour whatever is inside, and sometimes take seconds!!  It is such a relief, since you weren’t really enjoying baby food!!  I guess you just wanted to have what we were having!! 

–  You are getting more accurate with your hand movements, and can easily grab a toy with each hand!  It is very impressive!  You especially love playing with your “Fisher Price Little People Airplane”.  You love when Daddy or I sing the “High and Low” song as the airplane plays!  You still love jumping in your Jumperoo, and playing with balls, music players, or rattles.

–  You have started to push up on your knees and are trying very hard to figure out what to do from there.  I’m sure crawling is right around the corner and know that baby proofing is a MUST-DO!

– You love riding in the front of the carts at the grocery store, Target and Walmart.  You enjoy sitting in highchairs at restaurants, and HATE when we leave you in your car seat.  The only problem we encounter is the fact that you enjoy reaching for things now – we have to always check to make sure you haven’t grabbed something!

– Your schedule varies, but it normally consists of sleeping 10-12 hours at night, getting up once.  You typically nap twice a day between 1-3 hours each time.  In the past week you have not been napping at all, but I think it’s because you are going to cut your top two teeth!!

– At your doctor’s appointment, the doctor recommended taking your pacifier from you.  He said it would be easier to take now, rather than months down the road when you might be “emotionally” attached to it.  One morning when you woke up, we said that you could not take the pacifier out of your crib.  You went cold turkey, and did fantastic.  You never really cried or asked for it, and haven’t had it since!  After a week of no pacifier during the day, we took it away from you at night.  That was a little more difficult for all of us, but you have been a week without a pacifier during nap or at bed!  We are so proud of you!!

– You have had a month full of visitors, your Doodah, Sweetie, Mom, Mimi and PawPaw came to visit for a couple of days.  Then Doodah, Sweetie, Miss Pat, and Mr. Dennis came to visit.  Then Uncle Michael for a week!  Then, just yesterday, your Grandma and PapPap came to see you!  You are such a popular little boy!! 

– You have a best buddy, Kaylee.  You get very excited, smile big, and giggle when she comes over to play.  She keeps you very busy, as she brings you different toys, tries to change your diaper, gives you bottles, tells you what you can and can’t chew on, and gives you lots of hugs and kisses.  It is so sweet to watch the two of you play, and you always take a GREAT nap when she goes home!!

Wyatt, we love you so much and can’t believe in a few short months you will be ONE!  We love watching you discover new things, and are always amazed by the way you view the world with wonder and awe.  You have given us a chance to view life with innocence and fascination, reminding us to not take anything for granted!  These past seven months have flown by, and I can’t imagine what will happen in the next five!
