7 Month Update

Dear Titus,
At 7 months...
  • You weigh 18 pounds and are 25 inches long. Your height is in the 5th percentile, weight is 50th, and head is 85th.
  • You are wearing 6-9 month clothes (pants are still long) and size 3 diapers
  • You may not be tall but you are wide! We will have to get you a new car seat soon because you are getting squished
  • You sleep from 7:30-7:30 (12 hours), and take naps at 9:30 (1.5 hours) and 1:30 (1.5 hours), and sometimes a catnap around 4:00 (20-30 minutes).
  • You rarely fall asleep in my arms anymore- you like to be put in your crib to fall asleep on your own
  • You are finally napping in your crib for most naps. You still wake up at the 45 minute mark, sometimes falling back asleep after a few minutes and sometimes being done with your nap early. 
  • Your sounds for this month are blowing raspberries and a fake cough. 
  • You now eat lots of baby food and like almost everything. Your favorites are green beans and sweet potatoes. You don't know what to think about peaches and still hate peas and cereal.
  • You have rolled over both ways for a while now, but you never really wanted to do it til the last couple weeks. Now you roll all over the place!
  • You still don't cry tears! How weird is that?!
  • You can sit-up like a big boy now! You sometimes wobble a little like a bowling pin, but you do a pretty good job most of the time.
  • You have started rolling over and sleeping on your stomach which made me a little nervous at first, but a good friend told me that this will be the first of many times I ask the Lord to watch over and protect you, and I'm doing exactly that.
  • You have started saying some real jabber words instead of just noises. You'll say things like "ah ja da da da" over and over again to yourself all day long!
  • You are still extremely cuddly. If you had it your way I'd just carry you around all day while you look over my shoulder and hug my neck. Extremely inefficient for getting anything done, but it does this momma's heart good :)
  •  Your newest eating habit is wanting to eat your bottle flat on the floor. If I hold you and try to give you a bottle you throw a fit because you think I'm putting you to sleep.
  • You like when I clap and cheer for you, maybe you'll mimic me soon!
  • We took you to swing in the park for the first time and you LOVED it! I think we will have to get you one for the backyard.
Sweet baby you had your first real sickness this month and it was so sad! It started as a cold and morphed into a cough which made you lose your voice. Now your normally noisy personality is pitifully quiet and squeaky. This makes mommy feel so bad for you! It has really made me thankful for how lucky we have been, though, to have this be the worst thing you've experienced. I'm sure you will be back to your loud self in no time, and at least for now you are still our happy boy! Nothing seems to phase you, Titus James. You are our tough little man!
