You’re officially closer to being 1 year old than the day you were born. It is crazy how fast time has been going.
This month was so fun, but as usual you got sick the day before you turned 7 months. Surprise surprise. You got a horrible cold that came with a fever. Fortunately, you are on the mend now.
You are the cutest little chunk and I just love your thighs and arm rolls! You are in 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.
You finally cut a tooth on the bottom the day you turned 7 months! The other tooth isn’t far behind! I swore these teeth would be in weeks ago 😂
The screeching phase seems to have come to a close for the most part, but you do still screech when you get really upset.
The car is finally not an issue! I’m sure if we were in for an extended period of time it would be another story, but around town you’re happy as can be. Thank goodness!
You go back and forth between 2 and 3 naps a day. It just depends on how early you wake up, and how long your naps are. Thank goodness you are so willing to go with the flow, because unlike our first two kiddos, naps seem to be harder to plan around with older kids.
Bedtime is anywhere between 6:30-7:30 depending on how many naps you took that day, but usually it seems to be around 6:45ish. You wake up like clock work every night between 12-1:30am. Miraculously when you were super sick you slept through the night (and I completely expected to be woken up a bunch), and then went back to waking up once a night. I’m very ready for you to start sleeping through the night. You wake up around 6, but occasionally you wake up earlier. Sometimes I can bring you back to our bed and you fall back asleep.
We celebrated your first Christmas! It was crazy that we had another little baby at Christmas. These are the only pictures I got, and I’m already kicking myself.
You have decided that you love standing up. In your jumper, or trying to figure out how to pull yourself up. It won’t be long before you’re pulling yourself up on everything. You’re trying, but haven’t quite figured out how to get your legs in the right position to go from sitting to standing.
You’ve also started to rock and work towards crawling. I am totally okay if you want to take a while to master this skill.
You spit constantly!!! It always cracks up your daddy and I, but usually it just leads to your brother and sister saying, “mom Cameron is spitting!” They haven’t quite figured out why you’re allowed to spit, but they aren’t.
You are loving eating solid food. You have eaten so many things at this point I don’t think I can even list them all. You’re favorite seems to be bananas, but you haven’t turned anything down yet. Your pincer grasp is actually pretty good for 7 months old!
I dropped you off for the first time this month at BSF and Mom’s Morning Out. I was really nervous (your brother and sister weren’t the easiest kids to drop off… no bottles, only napped with me and screamed like crazy), so imagine my excitement when I picked you up and was told that you were “a delight!” The next day I was told you were a “dream and the only baby that didn’t cry!” You took a bottle and fell asleep in the swing! I was blown away! Thank you Jesus!
Your brother and sister just love you so much! Aubrey loves to help take care of you. She likes to give you food and hold you. Nolan loves to share his toys with you. You’ve got them both wrapped around your finger.
Watching you grow and learn this month has been so much fun! You are so happy and easy going, and I am so grateful for that. You’ve helped me learn to go with the flow better too! When I found out we were having another baby, I wasn’t quite ready for it, but God knew what He was doing. I am so grateful that His plan is always better than mine.
Happy 7 Months Cameron Laine!
