Month seven has been a big turning point around here. I think we are finally figuring each other out…or at least I am finally figuring you out!This month has marked big milestones, finally getting on a schedule and more sleep. Yay!
Sleeping. We are finally doing more of that around here. In fact you have even slept through the night a few nights which has been such a gift to your mama. You are definitely not consistently sleeping through the night, but when you do wake up it is usually only once or twice. I can deal with that. You are also taking more consistent naps. We had to do some sleep training and Levi and I had to plug our ears while you cried yourself to sleep…but everyone is so much happier now! You are taking two naps and the second one even overlaps with your brother’s nap…awesome.
Eating. You had a rough start with solids. You refused to eat cereal or vegetables. You wouldn’t even open your little mouth. I finally decided to throw in a few fruits and it did the trick. Now you will eat anything and you eat a lot. You definitely let us know when you are hungry. And puffs are your favorite. You get so mad when you realize you have eaten all your puffs and your tray is empty.
Sitting. You were so wobbly for a long time because you wouldn’t sit still. Now you are sitting up like a champ. You love to sit in the living room and play while watching your crazy brother run all around. You also love sitting in the walker. You just started scooting yourself around the house a little. You are sitting up in the bathtub and highchair too.
Teeth. Yep, you have two teeth now. Maybe that had something to do with how cranky you were last month…and maybe how little you were sleeping too??
Waving. One of your first “tricks” was waving. You waved at your cousin Ellie but I thought it was just a fluke. But the next day you waved at your gramps. I can’t always get you to wave back, but you are definitely waving!
I am so thankful for the changes this month has brought along with it. Getting more sleep has definitely been a bonus too. But most of all I am just so thankful for you.
And we can’t forget the monthly picture.
Levi was trying to help me get Griffin to smile. He was doing a pretty good job until Griffin found the 7 month flash card. Then it was all over. He either wanted to be eating the flash card or would roll over to his tummy. Levi even tried to throw in a snake for a little entertainment…he thought it was a great idea.
He was pretty much done with the photo shoot here…and then the fun began.
Levi loves to play with Griffin in his crib. Usually he attempts some type of wrestling so close adult supervision is definitely required.
You would think Griffin would not like to be mauled by his brother…but he loves it. He just laughs and laughs.
Griffin watches Levi so closely. Seven months has also brought along with it lots of fun with his brother!
