Seven-Month Old

Carson celebrated his seven month birthday this week!
He matured from a laying bather to a sitting bather this month.
I love clean, towel bundled babies.
Looking suspicious. Maybe because he's plotting against his drape hidden brother.
We love our bundle of joy!
Here's what he's been up to this month:

  • Tried to wake up at 4:00 AM two days in a row after daylight savings. No way baby.
  • Takes three 1 1/2 - 2 hour naps now. Wahoo!
  • Bedtime is 6:30-7, he wakes up at 10:00 PM for a bottle and goes back to sleep until 6 or 7 AM. I wrote that post about sleep training Carson a while ago, but he actually got teeth right after I wrote that post, so we gave up on sleep training. He fell into this night time sleep routine after consistently reading him books every night and putting him to sleep earlier. 
  • He started biting while he nursed after he got his top teeth. I'm talking bit every single time he started eating. After a week of being constantly bitten, I stopped nursing him. I have been pumping every morning and night, but he's a formula baby for everything in between. I feel like less of a mom because we didn't make it to a year, but nursing a biting baby made me way too anxious!
  • He has four teeth on top and two teeth on bottom.
  • He learned to crawl this month!
  • Says, "ma ma ma ma" all the time.
  • Loves sweet potatoes, green beans, bananas, oatmeal, prunes and pretzels.
  • Has pulled himself to standing a few times.
  • Likes to be rocked to sleep, but I'm trying to resist the urge to cuddle him to sleep so that he can fall asleep on his own in his crib. But he will still fall asleep in our arms. (Great for church!)
  • So happy all the time. He usually only has his binky to sleep because he's so content when he's awake.
  • He likes to dive head-first off of couches, down the stairs, and off our laps. Silly baby.

Those thighs kill me.
He's a little stud muffin!
Finally, here's a video of the little man's latest trick. Eli is obsessed with (what we call) potty noises.  He thinks he's hilarious. Every time he does it I'm in shock at how innately gross boys are. It's seriously in their DNA. Or at least in my kids' DNA. Yeah, Carson's already caught on to the fun.
Happy seven months!
