My special little boy is 7 months old! These past few months have been the most exciting, joyful, love-filled months of my life. I love being Bennett's Mama. He is the perfect boy for our family. He showed up, changed everything, and now I hardly remember how I functioned without him. I love his sweet little disposition, and his wonderful, wonderful laugh. It makes me so happy to listen to him babbling to himself in the backseat.
At 7 Months Old:
-Bennett weighs around 20 pounds.
-He has cut his first tooth. I'll miss that gummy grin; but I like my little One-Tooth Wonder.
-He is also seriously close to crawling. He's mobile. Scooting backwards, and using this leg roll thing that gets him all around the room. We are in the mode of baby-proofing now.
-Also, at this distinguished age, he is able to ride in his bike seat with us around the neighborhood.
-Experiments with alot more baby foods. So far, he likes everything he's tried.
-Although we had sort of accomplished this a couple months ago, California through everything we learned out the window. e is now officially sleeping through the night. Every night. I actually would've kept getting up with him every night for the rest of my life. But his pediatrician said he was certainly big enough to sleep through the night and told us to give the Ferber method a try. He never cried more than a couple minutes and within 2 nights had it down. Now, every night at about 9, he is done for the day. Then he wakes up at 7 am sharp for breakfast. I get so excited to see him in the morning. I almost miss seeing him for those 3am feedings. Almost. ;)
So watch out world! Bennett is growing up and before you know it he'll be turning 1! And I'll be the sappy lady with the camera dabbing tears from her mascara smudged face.
