Seven Months.

Weight - between 17 and 18 pounds
Length - longer than 27 inches
Head Circumference - ??

Clothing Size - The 6 month outfits and sleepers are pretty much done now and 9 month and 6-9 month sleepers fit you the best. You're wearing some 12m clothes. Diapers - size 3 and the medium setting of the BGs still.

Hair - Just continuing to fill out, and you've lost quite a bit of the Gene Wilder Wisp on the right.

Sleeping - Great! You still nap 3 to 4 times a day and sleep 9-10 hours at night. No changes here, and you've done well in the pack and play while traveling.

Teeth - I feel like you're teething, but nothing's come through yet.

No teeth?  So what?

Eating - Additions to your food repertoire this month were peas, avocado, peaches, carrots, and some baby food cans/squeezey pouch things. You don't like peas, avocado, or peaches (the last one was a surprise). You aren't drinking as much formula as you were last month now that you're eating two full meals of solids. You probably get about 25-28 oz a day now.  You had your last bottle of breastmilk at 6 months, 3ish weeks.  It was a little bit sad for me, but mainly I'm happy to have gotten you to almost 7 months with breastmilk every day and I feel so free now that I'm not lugging the pump everywhere.

Movement - You scoot backwards some but no crawling yet. You're close to being able to go from sitting to all fours, but not quite there yet.

Milestones - You now ride in your stroller without your car seat all the time, and we're getting close to putting away the Snap 'n Go. You were baptized the weekend of your 7 month birthday - more to come on that later.

Favorite toys/activities - You love your stacking cups, jumperoo, our cell phones, wrappers, and paper. You swipe at everything you can get your hands on!

Dislikes - When we leave the room, when we won't let you have our phones or iPad.

What we love - How you think everything we say is soooo funny right now. We love your smiley little face.

What we don't love - That your diaper isn't making it as long as you sleep at night now. Switching to Overnights tonight - hopefully that does the trick!

What we're looking forward to - Not much on the horizon, so I'll say a quiet month of playing and relaxing.
