7 months!

Dear Sawyer,

You are 7 months old! You are a funny little guy and keep us laughing all the time! Just being with you is so much fun. I keep thinking every month/age is my favorite but it just keeps getting better and better.

You love sitting up and do it so well now. You will sit in the floor and play with toys and just "talk" to us. You are rolling around like crazy. Every time we lay you down you immediately go straight to your belly.

You are loving baby food. We've gone through all of the stage 1 veggies and are almost through all the fruits too. You are so cute and are like a little birdie while eating...constantly opening your mouth for more. So far you like everything but peas...but we'll keep working on those. We also gave you some sweet potato puffs the other day. Watching you eat those was cracking us up!

You still nurse 3 times a day (morning, afternoon & night), and you take two bottles at daycare - usually around 6 oz. You eat cereal or oatmeal mid morning, a veggie around lunch time and a fruit for dinner.

You now have 3 teeth - all on the bottom.

You weigh around 20 1/2 lbs. And you around 27 inches long. You are wearing size 3 diapers and 6-9 month clothes.

You are finally sleeping through the night, well for about the past two weeks. It took a couple of nights of fussing it out "self soothing" but now you usually don't even wake up. I honestly think I may have been jumping the gun and running into your room when it wasn't completely necessary. I still rock you to sleep at night but can lay you down for your naps awake and you'll go to sleep on your own.

You usually go down around 7:30 or 7:45. It keeps getting earlier, which is good for you because I know you need your sleep but sad for me. You still don't nap that great at daycare (but you take two good naps a day when we are at home) so you are just worn out by then. And you have been sleeping till around 6am or so. It has been amazing!

I still catch myself just looking at you and I am still in awe that you are mine. What a blessing that I was chosen to be your mommy.

I love you, Saw!

Here are some pictures of you at 7 months:
