Whitt - 7 Months

Whitt is now seven months old.  I really feel like he was just born yesterday.

He's now right around 17 pounds and 29.25" inches long.  Tall & skinny!

He still does not have any teeth, but has had us convinced he's working on them since September.  Sometimes I can even feel them, but then the next day, all I can feel is gums.  It's the craziest thing!

He wears 9-12 month clothes and size 3 diapers.

He still wakes up at least once a night.  Not sure what that's about, but I haven't been motivated enough to do anything about it.

He nurses 7-8 times a day and eats baby food 3 times a day.  We haven't found a baby food that he doesn't like or that he won't eat.

He's crawling everywhere, room to room, all over the house, but still doesn't pick his belly off the ground much when he does it.

In the past week he's started pulling up to stand and cruising around furniture.  He's happiest when he's on the move.

He also really loves playing peek-a-boo.

He gets so excited when Jon gets home from work and doesn't want anything to do with anyone else for at least the first thirty minutes of him being home.

He's even trying to stand up without pulling up on anything.  This boy is crazy!

He absolutely exhausts me because he's into everything and so much more mobile at this point in his life than his sisters were.  Since he's also so young, he doesn't quite understand "no" yet, but we're working on it.  

This boy thing is a whole new ballgame and I learn something new every day.  They seriously are so very different than girls.  However, he has added so much to our family.  I can't imagine our lives without him.  I'm so excited to see how much more he adds to life in the future.  I know we're only getting started on all things "boy."
