Finn is 7 months

Our sweet baby had a very eventful month! He started eating more solid foods this month. In the beginning of the month, he was primarily just exploring the foods with his hands, but now he is sometimes eating food off of a spoon and is starting to put more food in his mouth from his hands. He is really liking avocado, banana, mangos and sweet potatoes. He mastered solo sitting, and he also started clapping and scooting on his bum which he is so proud of!:) This little boy wants to move these days!

No new stats this month.

Likes: smiling, scooting, clapping, playing with toys, being held or worn in a baby carrier, snuggling with Momma while sleeping, playing with Noah, listening to Daddy sing, nursing, books, watching his big brother, babbling (he can now say "dada" :)

Dislikes: being put down for too long, getting dressed 

Sleep: He is taking 2-4 naps a day anywhere from 30 min-2 hours each. Most days he takes either 2 longish naps (1-2 hours each) or 3 naps (morning, afternoon and late afternoon cat nap if one or more of the naps are short). He is ready for bed at night around 6:30-7pm and wakes around 6:30-7am. We are still co sleeping, and he is still nursing anywhere from 2-4x per night on average, but they are still very short feedings, and we both go right back to sleep and wake up in the morning rested (well, most nights! ;)

Foodie Baby: Finn still loves to nurse and usually nurses every 2-3 hours during the day. Like I mentioned above, he is eating much more solid foods now. I offer him fruits, veggies or something off my plate during each of our main meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner). He will now eat from a spoon and is trying to feed himself, but he is still having a bit of trouble getting small foods in his mouth (i.e.: puffs, peas, black beans, etc) and keeping small items in his mouth. His tongue is still pushing foods out of his mouth a bit. Baby steps! He has sampled/explored lots of foods so far: avocado, bananas, sweet potatoes, green beans, broccoli, apples and homemade applesauce, black beans, mango, carrots, cucumber, bread, waffles, crackers, puffs, peas, zucchini and potatoes.

Teeth: Finn now has 6 teeth...4 teeth on top and 2 teeth on bottom. And just a few days ago, his 7th tooth started cutting (his bottom left incisor). We are hoping the Tooth Fairy stays away for a bit now once this tooth is done cutting. He has more than enough teeth for a 7 month old!

Other Fun News: Finn can now sit solo, clap and scoot. He also babbles, sings and blows raspberries. His first word was "dada". :)

Til next month!
