I’m not going to lie: William’s seventh month was not his finest. I welcomed (yesterday) his eight month birthday with open arms! Don’t get me wrong now; I still love him more every day and am completely astonished by how quickly he’s growing and his ability to constantly learn new things. I’ll explain the details in the post. But first, William’s first school photo:
It’s no SCP, but it’s still ridiculously adorable!
Doesn’t he look so old? So big? Like such a little boy?! Where’s my baby?!
Height & Weight: William weighed in at 18 pounds 9 ounces last weekend! Not sure about his height; he’s definitely getting longer!
Eating: Oh boy. Check out my post from yesterday on William not tolerating food so well lately. That explains everything on the eating front. Let’s just say that nursing is still going extremely well and that’s the most important part regarding William’s nutrition!
Sleeping (naps): On average, William takes three naps while I’m away at work though the times and length varies. (still the same)
Sleeping (at night): These last two nights, William has gone down to sleep around 6:30 pm and has slept so much better than the previous two weeks! Before, I was trying to get him to sleep between 7 – 8; it was usually closer to eight. So now I’m wondering if he was overly tired before. He’s still not sleeping through the night, but the last couple of nights he’s only had two or three wake ups! I know that sounds like a lot, but before he was having like five to six, no joke.
Clothing: 9 and 12 month clothing! Growing every day!
New this month: William is thisclose to crawling! He’s been getting up on all fours lately! He can scoot backwards and usually just rolls to get something. I know he’s going to be on the move so soon though! William is cutting a top tooth which I think is part of the reason his sleep was affected the past couple of weeks. I’ll be relieved when it finally breaks through, and I think he will be, too!
William likes: Nursing! William’s always liked nursing (well, after the first three weeks anyway), and now he seems to like it more than ever since it agrees with him so well (compared to vegetables and fruits). I’ve been bathing William in the bathtub (not the sink anymore since he’s too big), and he seems to love bath time. He plays with his rubber ducky and tries to grab the water coming out of the faucet. William also loves music. At school, his teachers always write me a note when they visit a music class because he loves it so much. I try to take him to different musical events for babies/kids around town. William likes discovering new toys. He gets so focused on what something can do.
William dislikes: Fruits, vegetables, being tired, and cutting his top tooth.
Told ya! Still the happiest baby ever! 😉
What’s to come this month? When did you or your baby start crawling?
