7 Months!

Happy 7 month Birthday Alex!

  • You've been going to bed around 7:30 - 8:00.  Some mornings you sleep in and I have to wake you up at 7:45/8:00 so I can feed you and get to work!
  • You've been sleeping in on the weekends, until 8:30, and sometimes 9:00.
  • Your naps at home have been going really well.  We're still working on daycare, but when you take one there sometimes it's for 3hrs!
  • You are eating every 3hrs (5x/day).  You take 6.5oz bottles at daycare.
  • You're eating solids once a day.  You've tried lots of different things.  I'm pretty sure your favorite is prunes!  

  • We went in to get your eye looked at and you weighed 18lbs 7oz fully clothed, so I'm guessing around 18lbs 4oz.
  •  No measurement this month.

  • We're still doing cloth diapers.  We use the BumGenius Elemental Organic All-In-One One-Size.  You're on the second setting.
  • When we travel or are out much we do disposables.  We also do them at night.  Wearing size 3's.  I like the Huggies Little Movers the best.
  • Cloth diapering with solids is (still) proving to be interesting!
  • You are wearing 6-9/9mo/6-12mo clothes.  You have a huge wardrobe now that Christmas is over.  Hopefully you stay in this size for a while and get some good wear out of all of them!

  • You celebrated your first Christmas, here in NC.  Grandma and Grandpa Bouchard came down to celebrate with us.
  • You got lots of fun new toys and are learning to play with them all.
  • The day after Christmas we noticed your first tooth popped up.  You weren't acting too fussy, so we were really surprised.  2 days later, #2 made an appearance.
  • Lately solids have been hit or miss.  You definitely do not like veggies!
  • You sleep face down in your crib, butt in the air, rather cute!
  • We got to go to playgroup twice this month and it was fun to see everyone again.
  • You LOVE your jumperoo!  Auntie Sarah got you a new Step-n-play music toy that you stand in too and you're getting used to that.
  • We went up to Baltimore and cousin Shannon watched you while mommy and daddy went to the Redskins/Patriots game.  She was sad because you slept most of the time, but loved playing with her when you finally woke up!
  • You hate being on your belly, you want to either sit or stand.  We've put you on your belly a few times and you've gotten up on all fours, head down, but no movement.  It's ok, no need to crawl too soon.  :-)
  • You have become pretty loud and like to make lots of noise!  You've started chanting da-da-da-da constantly.  I've tried to get you to say ma-ma-ma-ma but no luck!
  • You started clapping on New Year's Eve day.
  • You LOVE bathtime!  You cry when we take you out!


Comments make me smile!

Have a wonderful day!
