My baby is 7 months old this week! I hate it...and I'm totally enjoying it all at the same time. Jaxson has changed a ton in the last month. It flew by and it seemed every day he had learned something new. We were in Utah on his 6 month B-day and again on his 7 month B-day....so it was easy for me to keep track of all the things he learned in between our trips! One of the biggest things he learned is to sit up on his bum. He has mastered it and is starting to get himself onto all fours! Crawling here we come:) (SCARY) We also got his big boy high chair out for the first time this week. He thinks it's a wonderful new toy....and I think is LOVING being on the same level as us while we're working around the kitchen. I also introduced the "sippy cup" and I'm starting to feed him more meats and make sure he gets juice every day...(I am so bad at that.) Which brings me to another new thing....his very first tooth...WAHOO! He is getting a bottom tooth and man it is SHARP. I can tell he's uncomfortable but he's doing so great! Now....this little addition brings on more changes...like flouride tablets everyday....and at least 4 ounces of water:) Just when you get it down....they go and grow some more and their needs completely change. I am loving it though and it is so exciting!
Check out my new high chair...I'm a big boy!
Jaxson's new baby einstein sippy cups! He didn't know what on earth it was. He has exclusively nursed....so he doesn't even know how to hold a bottle. Whoops:) He will figure it out. Funny story: I tried all morning long with him....placing it in his mouth and trying to teach him how to use it. I finally gave up and Jarom got home from class. I was explaining to Jarom how he just couldn't understand and Jarom picked up the sippy cup and said, "jaxson...watch!" He put it by his mouth and held the little handles (looking completley ridiculous by the way:) and made a swallowing sound. Next thing ya know....
WAHLAH! Jaxson picked up his cup and placed it in his mouth and copied his dad. I'm so grateful for jarom......especially on days when I think about things to hard:)
One of Jaxson's MANY teether rings.....hope that tooth fully erupts soon!
We can get him giggling SO LOUD:) I love it.
He has also started making some strange faces since this tooth started coming in. One of them is to scrunch up his nose like this! Sometimes he makes a wierd grunting noise....I really have no clue what he is thinking...but it is adorable (to me of course). I love when he laughs out loud.
1-Still HATES to get dressed and will scream like his arm is being cut off!
2-Loves anything that is NOT A TOY...like the remote or my cell phone!
3-Likes to suck on anything...especially any part of my shirt or face!
4-Laughs all the time...and is such a joy!
5-Loves to eat all foods except Peaches....HATES THEM!
6-Is starting to scoot and wants to crawl!
7-Is a total mamma's boy....sometimes won't even let Jarom get near him!
8-Has figured out how to throw a tantrum (this was a sad day to see). My sweet little boy will refuse to sit up or stand up and will throw his body backwards allowing his head to hit the floor! So sad....
9-Has been on an airplane more than any 7 month old ever should!
10-Has me and his dad wrapped around his little finger:)
