Leo is 7 months old today! He is such a happy boy and smiles all the time! This month was big with FOOD! I’m a big fan of baby-led weaning (read this book if you’re interested) and he’s gotten MUCH better this month. Really chewing and swallowing and picking up the food to bring to his mouth. His favorite this month was probably the potato ham soup or short ribs that I made! Oh wait! OR probably the donut my Mom gave him! :) Ha! So he’s moving right along with that. He really loves to sit at the table with us (we got him this high-chair) and he is mastering his pincer grip.
Haha, that picture makes me laugh with his double chin! And yes, he’s still a big boy!! Growing so fast. He has started scooting on his belly and he’s all over the place in his crib. Probably going to start crawling this month or next. EEEK! Then I’ll REALLY see what a boy is like with the things he’ll probably get in to!
He loves to play with his toes and reaches them to his mouth often. Which is so cute! He also STILL loves his two fingers to suck on. He’s really preferring his last two fingers, his pinkie and ring finger lately. But sometimes it switches :)
He also popped TWO teeth this month! He got a fever and runny nose/cold during the week of teething, but he also had vaccinations that week. So it might have been the teeth. Ivy never had trouble teething so this whole fever/cold/miserable behavior could be new to me if Leo has problems teething :(
He’s still getting up once a night to nurse : / Buuut, pretty much sleeps from 7pm – 7am other than that one time getting up. So he’s doing good! He also makes a lot of noises! He says “A-da, a-da” all day and it’s funny because Ivy will copy him! Here’s a video of him chatting with me :)
And he still LOVES his sister! Watches her all the time. And Ivy has gotten quite smitten on him this month. Always kissing and hugging him. SWOON. (PS – Ivy’s skinny legs here! WHOA!)
Here’s a funny video of them!
Here are some favorites of Leo this month
